A Read-A-Thon... I mean why not?

Monday, July 22, 2013

It's not like my life isn't busy (right... it's not hard to raise two boys...).  I totally can keep my whole house in top shape and make three meals a day and take care of the weeds that are taking over my brick patio...

And since I have so much free time I am thinking this would be a perfect week to add a Read-a-thon to my life!  (I can see you shaking your head... but I'm still going to do it!)

And why you might ask?

Well I do love to read.

And I can read to my kids as part of this one, so it's a win-win!


I'm going to give a try to the High Summer Read-a-thon over at Seasons of Reading...



I have a goal for my kids - three books each day this week, including a new book each day (that is the tough part of the challenge as my kids have favorites) Here's the list of new books I have for my kids this week:
How to Babysit a Grandpa
Joseph wants to read
Spot's Fun First Words
Mouse Paint
And Red Galoshes a story about a rainy day
Seriously, Cinderella is so Annoying!
Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You


And I have a personal goal... wrap up the tons of books I have started because I have a huge list of newbies waiting! Here's what I'm hoping to read this week:
Prayer Warrior Mom (only like 4 pages left)
The Hobbit (a re-read for tutoring- last 1/3)
The Hunger Games (a re-read for tutoring - last 2/3)
Anything (2 chapters left)
Unfulfilled
Discovering True Identity


And yes that is quite a list, but my books are all partially read, so it's just a matter of getting in gear and not picking up a new book in the process... that is a challenge for me...

So here's to completely my challenge.

Want to join?  You can sign up through Friday, so try to challenge yourself this week!
