2014 Book Blogger Summer Reading Program




I've always been one to participate in my library's summer reading program. In my library you are given a paper with six sections where you write your name, contact information, and books you've read within an hour (if you are an adult within four hours) until you filled up each section and turned it in for the possibility of winning a great prize. Once you have done that you get a whole new piece of paper that lets you start all over again. I'm a little obsessed with this process because I always make sure I'm timing myself correctly. I'm not a cheater after all. So the prospect of a blog version of my library summer reading program excites me a little too much to be normal. It's not the same of course but this program should be really fun so I decided to join. 

What is the Book Blogger Summer Reading Program? It's setting a goal to read at least 5 books from May 1st to September 1st. You may win prizes at the end of the challenge once you have completed your goal.

My goal is to read 40 books in the span of 4 months. That's 10 books a month or 2 books a week or 40 books in 124 days if I'm calculating that correctly. I plan to update what I've read every Saturday from now until the last Saturday of the challenge. After the challenge is over I'll report all the books I've read in total. Good luck to everyone who is participating!

  2. I forgot all about the library's summer reading program. I used to love it! Ours is for kids only so I haven't been able to participate for awhile. Maybe I'll sign up for this!

    1. I don't know why they wouldn't include adults. I was so happy that at 19 I could still take part in the program. It would be great if you joined too! It feels very low pressure so it should be fun.

  6. What an awesome incentive. Two books per week should be a great challenge with your study load. Ten per month sounds easy, but even I find it hard to read that many and I don't have schooling to compete with.

    *gets out poms poms* Can't wait to follow along with your challenge. Sorry I haven't been here in a while, been so busy lately, but getting all my blog visits back on track :)

    1. It can be hard with school but I think I'll keep myself motivated by visiting other blogs that are joining in. I can be a bit competitive when I want to be.

      Haha (: ~ thanks for the support! It's okay, last month I was hardly even on here. I'm catching up with blog visits too.
