On June 5th through June 7th, I will joining in on "The Fourth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge" being hosted by MotherReader. I so enjoyed cheering on all those who participated in the Dewey, 24 Hour Challenge, that I decided I really should participate by being a reader/blogger in this event! Since I fly to Hawaii for the summer on June 3rd, and will be there until August 10th, I think this would be a fun way to kick off my first weekend on summer break! Check the links above for additional information.
I've also joined the "Shakespearean Summer" Challenge, to read three plays between June 1st and August 31st. The challenge is being hosted by Liv's Book Reviews, and is also being sponsored by Liz Mantchev, who will be giving away a free copy of her book Eyes Like Stars. Here are the rules to the challenge:
So onto the rules.Drop by to see all the information about the challenge, and to sign up. (Click on the link above.)
1. You must read three plays by Shakespeare between June 1st and August 31st. There's a list of all of his stuff toward the bottom of this page.
2. After you've finished reading one, do a post about it on your blog. Link back to this original post in your own post so people can see what it's all a part of.
3. If you don't have a blog, leave your thoughts in the comments of this post so there's some sort of documentation.
4. The Sparknote versions of the plays can count. Because yes, Shakespeare is hard to understand and sometimes we might need a little help along the way. I know that I'll be reading some Sparknotes.
5. Have fun.
I'm so looking forward to both of these challenges, and can't wait to get my summer started now! If you get a chance, come join in. :)
