readalong: summer vacation
posted by soe 1:59 am

I’m making progress on the two readalongs I’m already signed up for, so thought I might add a third one for the summer.

Molly at My Cozy Book Nook is hosting a Summer Vacation Reading Challenge:

I love to travel, but with the economy the way it is, a get-away summer vacation is not in the budget this year. However, books are very affordable (and libraries add new meaning to the phrase “price is no object”). I anticipate taking many ‘literary’ vacations over the course of the next few months, and I hope you can join me as well.

… You may read any literary genre that you enjoy – provided it allows you to “travel” to a different locale that you would like to visit.

I will be participating in the Beach Bum category, which asks me to read three books by Labor Day.

I’m not sure about which books I’ll pick, but I’m hopeful that Shannon Hale’s adult novel, Austenland, will be amongst them. Other potential locales include a Midwestern dairy farm, a fancy Parisian apartment building, an Ottawa community of Scots, and outer space (DON’T PANIC!).
