I’ve decided to join an online summer reading program at http://summerreadingonline.blogspot.com/. At work, it’s fun to encourage kids in their summer reading, and now it will be fun for me to keep track of my own reading, as well. My goal from now until August 29th is to read 12 books. I’ve already read two (Sphere by Michael Crichton and Texts from Jane Eyre by Mallory Ortberg), so I’m guessing I will exceed my goal, but I have some longer, classic books on my list, so wanted to give myself plenty of time to read them.
My personal summer reading goals (beside the 12 books):
- To at least start on my goal of rereading all of Jane Austen’s books.
- To read some books that have been on my to read list for a while, but that I haven’t gotten a chance to read because they are adult books and I mainly read children’s books.
- To pick books that sound fun and get into the spirit of summer reading!
The next book on my list: To Dance with Kings by Rosalind Laker. I heard about this through one of my favorite podcasts, The History Chicks, and it’s been on my to read list for a while. It’s a huge, multi-generational saga–exactly what I love to read in the summer! Happy summer reading, everyone.
