Reading Challenge 1 - Holiday Bookaday

This is my second year joining Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer, in holiday #bookaday.  We challenge ourselves to read a book each day we are not at work.  I have 16 days off and many books to tackle for Mock Newbery and Mock Printz plus I have two books to read from The Nerdies and two recommendations. Hmm..

That's  good place to start, but there's more than 16 books and some of them are long! I better get cracking! Do you have any days off coming up?  If so, what are your holiday reading plans?


  1. Kathy, I'm sure you can get it all read. I'm doing my own book-a-day. So far I'm doing pretty well. I tried reading Under the Dome but after about 50 pages I put it down. Can't wait to read your thoughts on Heart and Soul. I enjoyed it but loved We are the Ship much more. Happy reading!

  2. You are cranking away! Congrats! Wish I were reading more right now!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
