Kaia (kaianicole) | 14 comments Would anyone be interested in participating in a low-key summer reading challenge here on GoodReads this summer, just among MLIS students/alumni? I'm thinking of something along the lines of Book Riot's Read Harder Challenge or the GoodReads Seasonal Reading Challenge (but not as complex), with a focus on reading diversely and a few fun library-themes. I imagine it all here in this group online, where people can post about what they read for different categories. Thoughts? Ideas? Would you participate?

Rhica (whalesnark) | 4 comments Yes, I have a lot of books I want to read, starting with some more YA fiction but reading some books in genres I don't usually pursue, like non-fiction, would be awesome.

Jennifer | 3 comments Yes! No class this summer means more reading time for me. This will just be extra encouragement.

No! Definitely not. Reading is reading. :)

Amy Rae (amyraeweaver) | 5 comments In theory, yes; in practice, depending on what my summer workload looks like. But I like the idea!
