It’s that time of year again! The sun is shining, gardens are growing, the pool is open…It’s summertime! I absolutely love the summer months. So, today I thought I’d share my reading goals for Summer 2017! Also, just to be clear I generally count my “summer reading” from Memorial Day to Labor Day – late May through early September.
1. Read at Least 20 Books
Last year my summer reading goal was 15 books, and I read 20, so I thought this year I’d just make my goal 20 books!
2. Complete My Library’s Summer Reading Program
My library has a great summer reading program for all ages that not only encourages reading, but also exercising. I love participating and look forward to it each summer!
3. Read More Classics
I used to try and read a classic once a month, but for this year so far, I haven’t read any!
4. Read Gone with the Wind
Going off my last goal, one of the classics I want to read is Gone with the Wind. So many people absolutely love this book, and I have never read it or even seen the movie. I admit, I’m a little intimidated by this book because it is h u g e, but I feel like summer would be the perfect time to conquer such a mammoth!
5. Finish Some Series!
I have so many series on my shelf that I have started, and even own all the books, but have yet to finish! I’d really like to actually see how all those awesome series I’ve started end.
6. Reread The Book Thief
I read The Book Thief a few years ago, and completely fell in love with it. I haven’t read it since, but I’ve been meaning to for a long time. I wanted to reread it last summer, but never got around to it, so hopefully this summer I can!
7. Participate in a Readathon
I love readathons! They give me the perfect push to read more. I know there are probably many out there, but I’m still looking for one to participate it in. So, if you know of any, let me know!
Those are my reading goals for the summer! What are yours? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
