Summer Lovin’ Readathon

The Summer Lovin’ Readathon is a week-long readathon event hosted by seven independent bloggers: (Oh, Chrys!, Tumbling Books, Effortlessly Reading, Love Life Read, Shelf Addiction, Read Sleep Repeat, and Reviewing Wonderland)

Spend the week reading at your own pace, when and how you want too. There will be daily challenges for awesome prizes and opportunities to get points toward the Grand Prize Packs.

As if that weren’t enough – the week will end with a 24-hr marathon readathon! Twitter parties, mini-challenges, games, prizes given EVERY HOUR, and more chances to get points toward the Grand Prize Packs.

Sign-ups will be open through July 6th.

I figured that since I was doing so much reading today anyway, between two flights and an unexpected delay at the airport. And since I’m only signing up today, I’m using this as my “Class Orientation” participation post, too!

I will have ended up reading in three states this week – New Jersey, North Carolina, and Florida (home).  I read all types of books, as I’m sure will be evident from those I read this week.

So far, I’ve finished Jacob’s Room, by Virginia Woolf. For some reason it took me for-ev-er to read this, even though I really did like it. I also read about half of Anne Tyler’s The Accidental Tourist. On audio I’m listening to Trapeze  by Simon Mawer. I want to at least finish those two that I have in progress. I’ve also been reading The Golden Bowl by Henry James. I made some good progress over the weekend, but I’ve still got well over 200 pages left. If I could finish all of those, anything extra would be icing on the cake!
