This is the Summer version of our Reading with the Seasons challenges. As always, you decide how to make it work for you.

Some examples:

**A character’s name is Summer.
**Many weddings take place during the summer.
**School letting out for the summer.
**Families taking summer vacations.
**Summer heat waves, swimming parties, etc.
**Books published in June, July, August or September count, as well as books in which a character or author is named June, July, August or September.
**Books with summer related words in the title such as hot, heat, vacation, sun…
**Books with summery images on the cover.
**Books that make you fan yourself!
**Books that have any kind of summer celebration like Independence Day.

*****Most importantly, if you can tie it to the summer theme, it works!*****

Please, when you post your stats updates, do it like this: x/12 or "3 down..." etc., because this way it’s much easier for me to keep track of. I do much of my updating from my iPad now and if I can't easily find the stats, I might miss them.

Feel free to list your books at any time, and change them or alter your challenge right up through September 22nd.

The only restriction to this challenge is that books can only count if they were started on or after June 21st and finished by September 22nd.

I'll be sending out the challenge invites soon, but feel free to sign up below at any time.

E. R. (dilawrosas) | 507 comments I would have participated...if it weren't for September being the start of a new semester. That and I'll probably focus on said textbooks in August rather than my own books.

Oh, well. Good luck to you participants!!!


message 30: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Good luck with school, E.!


ilovebakedgoods (Teresa) (ilovebakedgoods) Question: Would you prefer we just update our one thread as we complete books or would you prefer that when we complete books we paste the updated version in a new post?

I need you to post new stats each time so I get notified. If you just update the initial post, I have to keep going back and checking to see if anything changed, but if you do a new post, I'll get notified. :)

Sounds good! Since the 21st is almost here, I really need to start planning my reads for this. I have a note written that says, "DO NOT READ UNTIL JUNE 21" for a couple of books I want for this, LOL.

You create the challenge however you like. If it makes you think of Summer, it counts. That's the only requirement. Well, that and the start and stop dates.
