July Book Blowout

July 1 - July 31, 2008

Mrs. S at The Blue Archipeligo is hosting the July Book Blowout. Mrs. S writes:


Have you acquired a nice pile of books to read this summer? Do you need some encouragement to get through the pile a bit quicker? Or just an excuse to sit out in the sunshine and escape with a good book?

The rules are simple:
  • Only books read between July 1 and July 31 count towards the challenge
  • You can include re-reads - as long as they are read within the month of July
  • Books you abandon will only count as half a book
  • If you read to your children you can include all books which have more than 100 pages
  • You can include up to two graphic novels
  • You can include up to two audio books - (if you have a visual impairment that prevents you from reading then you can use just audio books for the challenge)
  • Books you read for other challenges are eligible - use this as an opportunity to catch up!
Mrs. S is also planning to post mini-challenges throughout the challenge period...oh, and there will be an Amazon gift certificate awarded to one lucky participant!

To sign up (through July 14th) and get all the details, visit the post about the challenge and use Mr. Linky to link to your list of books you plan to read.

  1. Thanks for the announcement Wendy - I hope y'all will come and join in the fun - there's no minimum read for this challenge - you just need to challenge yourself to read at least one more book than usual :)
