July Reading Challenge!

July 3, 2014 ♥ Posted in: Books, Geek Events, Writing by Kristina Horner

Okay so. The July Reading Challenge. This is just a little idea I had yesterday while thinking about making time for reading. I pitched the idea on Twitter and when the reaction was positive, I kind of got carried away with it.



The premise is simple: Just read every day. But the idea is to really pledge to do it, and to hold yourself accountable for it. I’m organizing a little support group for readers on Twitter, so if this idea sounds interesting to you, join in! Use the hashtag #JulyReading and respond to other readers whose posts you find! Encourage each other, share favorite lines from what you’re reading and recommend books to others.

I was going to make a whole list of questions to answer each day on twitter, but maybe I’ll do this challenge again sometime with more rigid rules. For this first run at it, let’s just keep it casual.

Make sure you’re following me on Twitter to follow along – I’ll be asking for check-ins each day, asking questions and sharing what I’m reading. I’d love it if you’d respond as well!

Let me know in the comments if you pledge to read every day in July. We’re going to get so much reading done!

I’m in! Currently trying to get into The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Travis says:

I plan on reading every day in July! 😀

Janna says:

Perfect timing! I’m going on a library run tonight!

Mariah says:

I’m in and am super excited!

I love it! Right now I’m re-reading Harry Potter and I’m currently on Goblet of Fire. But I plan on taking a break after that to read The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennett!

Cassidy says:

A few days ago, I purchased the entire world of John green (aside from tfios and looking for Alaska). I think I have my work cut out for me 🙂
Also, I pass a Barnes and Noble every day. It really is a self control exercise not to stop there every morning!

Ada Starino says:

I’m so in! I just finished The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet and am in the process of rereading Abarat by Clive Barker.
