August and September

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!
