Summer Reading

Summer is here! Yay!!! I'm seriously in need of some chill time, particularly to read more. I so enjoyed all of the reading I was able to do during summer break last year. I may not get as much in this year as I am still in the process of planning for the first semester of the 2013-2014 school year. I have three new HS English classes I'm taking on this year. BUT. I still have some things I am going to attempt to participate in.
The 48 HBC will take place June 7-9 and is being hosted by Ms. Yingling Reads this year. I love this event and am excited it is happening since I was unable to participate last year. Also I have TBR pile that could use 48 hours of concentrated reading to help reduce it.

In addition to this I'm also going to do the #Bookaday Challenge. Now I really mean in addition to. I know #bookaday is supposed to be an average so technically the 48 HBC would cover half my summer. But I will try to read a book a day too. Many of them will be picture books more than likely.

I am also going to participate in this:
I love a good series and there are several that I have on my TBR that I want to read, and a few I've started that need finishing. This seems like the perfect motivation for that. I signed up here at Into the Hall of Books. You can sign up at either of the other blogs also hosting the challenge too.

Is anyone else doing any of these? What other summer reading challenges are you doing?

  1. I'm doing #bookaday (although I might up it to 6 books a day ... ha ha ha).

    Can't do the 48-hour one since hubby has a deadline that Monday that is BIG... and since he's bringing in the dollars and I'm not, we'll let him go for it and I'll try again next year!

    Do picture book series count? :-)
