I had to start my Book-a-Day summer challenge on Sunday. I couldn’t wait until my summer — my summer doesn’t start until June 11th! (And it ends early, as well. Boo hoo.) There are so many books to read, so many characters to meet, so many awesome authors who have written new works!
The Book-a-Day challenge (#bookaday) is a challenge where you read a book a day (on average) for a number of days, all set up by you — yourself — as a challenge to read more, read widely. You can read picture books, poetry, short stories, novels, nonfiction, ANYTHING! I wanted to start after reading Donalyn Miller’s (The Book Whisperer, Reading in the Wild) challenge last year. I read for 40 days, no problem. But I didn’t share every day, which is my goal this year. Sharing is the best part. You read, and others recommend, and you read more! It’s an excellent way to spend your time, trust me!
Day 1) The Unstoppable Writing Teacher (M. Colleen Cruz)
Day 2) Reading Workshop 2.0: Supporting Readers in the Digital Age (Frank Serafini)
Day 3) The Reading Strategies Book (Jennifer Serravallo) I received this one today after waiting, waiting, waiting! (This will take me longer than a day, but I’ll read a picture book to go with each day, so that counts!)
I have to get back to reading, now. LOL Why don’t you join me?
