July 21 through July 27
I love read-a-thons and this High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle from the True Book Addict blog, is one of my favorites. I participate every year. You can still participate by going to the Seasons Reading blog to sign up.
I tend to read a lot and enjoy the time I spend outdoors reading with my dog and my kids. This year, I have a broken foot which means I am pretty limited in what I can do, so I have been reading and writing a lot. For this read-a-thon I have several goals.
Goal #1. Read a book a day. This means I will read one book a day for the entire readathon or read seven total books finished.
Goal #2. I have 2 books that I am in the middle of and want to finish this week. Vacationland by Sarah Stonich and The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier. Both books are super good and I can't wait to find out what happens.
Goal #3. Writing. I know this is a readathon and not a writeathon but I want to write at least an hour every day this week and I think I will use this readathon as a way to do that. Writing includes blogging for me but I also want to work on my short stories and young adult novel. So much writing to do and so little time.
I will do a mid-week check in and let you know if I'm on track. Until then, Happy Reading to you!
