High Summer Read-a-Thon--to help work on those challenges!

It's time to sign up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon sponsored by Michelle@Seasons of Reading! The Read-a-Thon will start on Monday, 7/22 at 12:00am CST and finish on Sunday, 7/28 at 11:59pm CST (adjust times according to your time zone).  And we can read what we like during the week. Michelle has decided it's not about quantity, but quality (although those who rock the quantity...we salute you!). 

If you're anything like me, you've signed up for way too many challenges and need some incentive to knock out some more books. Goodreads has me at seven books behind my I'll take all the incentive I can get.  Hope you'll join Michelle...and me as we get ready to read in July. (click on link above)

Mid-Year Check-up

Mmmm.  Yes, I know it's been awfully quiet here at the Reading Challenge Addict page.  I'm sorry about that....between university life and a health emergency for my Dad, it's been kind of hectic.

BUT....the Challenge Addict Doctor is here today to poke and prod you and see how those challenges are coming along this year.  Now, now, this won't hurt a bit.  Have you stuck to your reading regimen as prescribed?  How's that word intake?  A little on the lean side or maybe you been gorging yourself a bit?  Come now, tell the good doctor all about it.  And if you'll just place your books here on the scale, we'll do a little weigh-in....

As for your challenge host...I've signed up for 28 reading challenges this year (including the Reading Addict).  So far, I've completed 11 of those and I'm more than 50% done with nearly all the rest.  I look a bit sickly on the Around the World in 80 Books challenge, but the good doctor reminds me that I have until 2017 to complete this one.  So maybe I'm in better shape than I thought.  I'm also feeling a little weak on the Outdo/GoodReads Challenges (same goal for each)--but with a good dose of Reading Vitamins and some heavy book-lifting, I'm hoping to get back on track.  My full Challenge Update may be found at the link.
