July Book-a-Day Challenge

In order to kick start my reading again after a bit of a lull, I decided to join the Book-A-Day Challenge hosted by The Nerdy Book Club (and others!).  The "rules" are pretty straightforward:

  • Decide on your own start and end dates. (I'm starting with July 1st - July 31st. Then we'll see about August.)
  • Read an average of one book per day. 
  • Any book counts. (Mine are mainly young adult, picture books, and a few adult books thrown in.)
  • Keep a list and share on social media - hashtag #bookaday (I'll update this page with my running list of books - and if you want to connect, I am also on Goodreads and Twitter!)
