Since I got back from my vacation, I realized just how quickly August is approaching. That also means for me, my Dusting off the Shelf Read-A-Thon will be in full swing in just about 5 days! Ah! As you can probably tell from this post title, I’m announcing (a little later than I was planning to) the challenges that some of you lovely people helped me come up with in the Goodreads Group that I’ve created for the Read-A-Thon. Feel free to join it, I’ll be adding discussions for the challenges, etc. in the near future! I’ll also be including my TBR that I hope to read during those two weeks, and I plan to make this my “master post” of sorts for my daily progress. Those of you that have joined: feel free to do something similar to track your progress and see how you do on challenges! If you don’t feel like it, it doesn’t make a difference to me, though! I want this to be a really laid back and fun read-a-thon! 😉
Those of you that have no idea what I’m talking about: here is my post in which I announced the Read-A-Thon, give the rules, sign-up info, etc.
With a little help from my blog friends I’ve got a few challenges that you can participate in if you want to! A little incentive to pick up something that’s been sitting around that you haven’t thought about lately.
- Read a book set in the past.
- Read a classic.
- Read a book written before 2010.
- Read at least 100 pages a day.
- And of course…the books must be neglected by you! One that’s been sitting unread for quite a while!
- Read a book set in the past: The Diviners by Libba Bray
- Read a classic: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen // The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (School summer reading book, but if I can make it count, I’ll do it!)
- Read a book written before 2010: The Maze Runner by James Dashner
- Fear by Michael Grant
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
- Pandemonium & Requiem by Lauren Oliver
Check back to this post to keep track of my progress throughout the Read-A-Thon! Link me to your progress posts in the comments so I can see how you’re doing, too!
On Twitter use the hashtag #DustingofftheShelf so we can all chat and keep each other motivated!
