It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Summer Vacation Challenge

Molly at My Cozy Book Nook is hosting the Summer Vacation Reading Challenge. Challenge runs from May 22 to September 7 (Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend). There are two different levels of participation and I'm going for Globe Trotter. I still need to finish my list but Beach Bum was way too easy!

Globe Trotter: you will commit to reading 6 pre-selected books during this time frame, but you may substitute up to 3 books due to changes in travel plans. Cross-overs for 5 out of the 6 books are allowed, but ideally one book will be read for this challenge alone.

Molly has rules and a Mr. Linky sign-up plus other info you'll need for the challenge.

Q: two of my challenges are 100+ books and Pages Read, does "one book will be read for this challenge alone" mean I can't count them?

Original List
1. Firefly Lane (Seattle)
2. Summer on Blossom Street (Seattle) ~ reviewed
3. Magic Strikes (alternate Atlanta) ~ reviewed
4. The Time Traveler's Wife (time travel?)
5. A Nose for Murder (Camden, Maine) - this challenge only?
6. Too Rich and Too Dead (Aspen, Colorado)

1. The Cat Who Went into the Closet ("Pickax City", Michigan)
The Trouble with Magic (Stony Mills, Indiana)

And just for the heck of it:
The Judge Who Stole Christmas (Possum, Virginia)
2. Island of the Blue Dolphins (San Nicolas Island, California)

Not bad, four from my original list. I never did purchase A Nose for Murder or Too Rich and Too Dead and my library system doesn't have them. I had a good time finding books for this challenge. I felt rushed but only because I joined late. Next year I'll start looking for it. I'm sure going to Hogwarts will count ;-)

I may never complete this challenge even though I've finished reading the books. Molly wants us to REVIEW the books {head bang}
