  1. Create a list of the books you’d like to read or finish during this summer season. There's no minimum and no requirements as to the type of books you put on your list ~ it's all up to you how many you include, and whether they're beach reads or classics or something in between.
  2. Write a blog post with the list of books you want to read ~ and any other summer reading goals ~ and post it on your blog.
  3. Go to My Book Retreat to sign up. She'll have a Linky set up , so you can link up to your own Summer Reading Challenge post.
  4. Read! Work through your list of books throughout the summer. Write reviews if you'd like. Have fun!
  5. Write a wrap-up post at the end of summer to report on your results.
  6. Go back to My Book Retreat on September 21st to link your wrap-up post to the Linky she'll post that day.

  1. This is quite an ambitious list you have put together.  There are some interesting titles on it, too.   Good luck on all of your challenges.   I had to fight the temptation to join this challenge.  I'm already doing so many.   I've enjoyed reading your reviews.  Oh, and I'm happy to have learned of "Musing Mondays."  Don't be surprised to see me there.


Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have the time, I would appreciate it if you leave a comment. Have a blessed day!
