It's Gettin' Hot in Here!
Duration: August 1st - August 31st, 2014


We're in the middle of summer, and I don't know about where you are, but it's getting hot at my house!
What better way to beat the heat than with a book lounging in the A/C or by the pool with a tasty frozen drink?

Challenge Rules
→ When you sign up for the challenge, please post some kind of a place saver so that I can link you up under the participants.

→ For each book you read, please indicate the title and the date you finished reading it. Also, when the task gives more than one option to choose from, please make it clear which option you’ve chosen. If the task requires a specific cover, include the book cover.

→ You may only use each book for one task in this challenge, but feel free to use the same titles in other challenges!

→ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire, completed list as a new message to make it easier for everyone to see what you've read, and to have your name marked as "completed".

→ If you decide that you've bitten off more than you can chew, feel free to let me know you'd like to downgrade, or even back out of the challenge. However, please do not delete post. It will mess up the links to other participants' postings if you do.

It would be a better challenge if you pick the level first and then choose that many tasks, however if you finish early and want to go to a more difficult level, that's a-ok!

Above the comment box it says add book/author. It gives you a pop up search window. Search for the title you want, adding the author's first name or surname can help bring up the right one if it is a common title. Select link for the title in words and cover for the cover and click add beside the correct book.

I am not the best at explaining things so I hope I haven't confused you more than I have helped.

Kristal, the books you've posted you read before August.
The point of the challenge is to read those books during the month of August.
So unfortunately, the books you have chosen are not elligible unless you re-read them all.

I haven't even picked up any of the books I listed for my challenge.

I've been far too busy with school and taking over the presidency for my college Deaf/hearing Cocial Club that I just haven't been able to really get in to any of my books.
