It’s book challenge time again! Let’s skip over the part where I tell you how bad I am at completing the challenges. Instead, let’s just talk about the books I hope to read in the near future. Today I am making my selections for the summer Book Challenge by Erin 5.0.
Someday I really, really hope that I finish a challenge- specifically Erin’s. Until then all I can do is pick my titles and try 🙂 If you like reading, please join us! You don’t have to devour books at a super human pace (obviously)- It’s all just for fun!

In addition to Erin’s Challenge, I’m currently participating in a reading competition with friends from Arizona. (We’re keeping track via spreadsheet on Google Drive.) Five of my books (*) match up with that challenge and will have to be read in July & August because that’s when the challenges overlap.
I’m so glad to have these lists and categories to push me to read more. Thank YOU to Erin (and Amanda & John in Arizona)!!
There’s still plenty of time to join the challenge with me! What books do you plan to read this summer?
