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.

Back to School Reading Challenge

logo for the Back to School Reading ChallengeBack to School
Reading Challenge
August and September


hosted at Joy's Book Blog

Sign- up here

Joy loves back to school season (August and September) and her reading turns from purely pleasurable beach book to another kind of pleasure: learning something new. She's developed a reading challenge/book club to give structure to her reading and has invited us along.
There are four levels
Freshman: 1-2 books
Sophomore: 3-4 books
Junior: 5-6 books
Senior: 7-8 books
"Read books on one topic or eight different ones or anything in between. Fiction is fine. I’ve learned a lot of history from novels set in other times and a lot about other cultures from novels set in other places. As long as you’re reading the book to learn something new, it counts for the Back to School Reading Challenge.
A sign-up post is not required, but it does help spread the word. If you write one, link it below so we can all see who is playing. Feel free to grab the logo and to ask for suggestions for books in your categories of study.
There will be a new post each Wednesday in August and September with a link list for any discussions or reviews related to the Back to School Reading Challenge. On four Wednesdays, there will also be a Twitter Chat. More about that later. We may also do a read-along if there’s interest."

I've got a couple of books that count for this in my current reading pile but I'm going to play it safe and go for . . . Freshman!

~ Books Read ~
1. Eat and Run by Scott Jurek with Steve Friedman (health and fitness)
2. The Enemy by Lee Child (military fiction)
