Summer Vacation Reading Challenge

April 10, 2009


What: Summer Vacation Reading Challenge
When: 22 May –  7 September 2009
Who: Molly (My Cozy Book Nook)
Rules: Quoted directly from her site:

Requirements: Summer vacations are meant to be relaxing and fun – not stressful. However, some people interpret “fun” by doing nothing but going to the beach and vegging out — while others like to maximize their sight-seeing adventures. To that end, I have developed two different levels of participation:

  • Beach Bum: you will read 3 books during this time frame (a leisurely book-a-month); cross-over book selections from other challenges may count; and you do not have to list books in advance — after all, summer vacation is a time for spontaneity.
  • Globe Trotter: you will commit to reading 6 pre-selected books during this time frame, but you may substitute up to 3 books due to changes in travel plans. Cross-overs for 5 out of the 6 books are allowed, but ideally one book will be read for this challenge alone.
  • See the sign-up post for more details.

    I know, I know. I said in the Anne Stuart Read-a-Fest post that I wasn’t going to join anymore challenges. But this one will compliment the read-a fest! If I can work in three of Anne’s books, that’s half the requirement for the Globe Trotter.

    I haven’t decided which six books (plus alternates).  Per my usual habit, I’ll list the books and track the progress on my 2009 Challenges page.
