Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments Hello Members of the 2018 Reading Challenge! I'm sorry that this monthly message is so late, but I have had the dreaded summer cold, and I have also been waiting to share some exciting news. We have hit 17,000 members! When I joined this group, we had less than 6,000 members, and I am honored to be able to be able to send this message out to so many of you!

July is here, and this month we are going to leave the light on for you. So tuck in under the blankets and read those extra pages!

Group Reads: Our July theme is Light. Our group read for the month is the Goodreads Choice Award Winner, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Dlyn is the leader for the discussion. We encourage you to join in.
---You can also vote for our August book; the theme is Royalty. Also, you can nominate a book for September; the theme is Science!

Challenges: It's What Makes this Group our Group!
---There are 6 months left in the year, plenty of time to join our 15 yearly challenges! Even if you join a challenge now, you can still count books you have already read in 2018.
---It is the start of the 3rd Quarter and we have new challenges.
The first is Spanning the Years. This challenge was created by Meghan and was the winner 3rd Quarter Challenge Competition during our Reading Through Time Challenge. The second is specific to our 3rd Quarter Theme, Reading Through the Decades. and is aptly named Reading Through the Decades and is led by Rebecca.
---Enjoying our theme of Light, we have two monthly challenges for the group. The first is A Bit of Light Reading led by Dlyn, and the second is Light Spell Out Challenge led by Claire.

Idontknow (cantgetright) | 7 comments Anyone actually reading Infinite Jest?

Don't think I'd be able to finish that one in a month. I've tried starting it a few times and I want to like it, but it hurts my eyes. Never done a buddy read before but if there is a group already reading it... I can force myself maybe a few hundred pages.
