Almost three weeks ago, Donalyn Millar, author of The Book Whisper, teacher, blogger and Twitter participant (@donalynbooks) posted a challenge on her blog about reading a book each day over summer holidays. Now, at first, I thought that this would be impossible for me. There was no possible way that I could read an entire book every day for two months! I am too slow a reader! But then, I kept reading and got thinking… Donalyn suggests setting your own goal, incorporating all levels of reading, and adapting as necessary. So, I decided to set my own goal:
1. Read one grade 3 level book each day over summer vacation, one day in French, one day in English.
2. Read 3-4 adult reads over the summer.
This seemed like quite a reasonable and achievable goal. I started holidays on Tuesday, June 27th. Here is my reading so far:
Tuesday, June 29 – Un chien à roulettes by Janeen Brian, 56 pages
Wednesday, June 30- The Case of Hermie the Missing Hamster by James Preller, 80 pages
Thursday, July 1 – Follet le furet by Penny Matthews, 56 pages
Friday, July 2nd – ADULT READ – Deadly Appearances by Gail Bowen, 280 pages
Saturday, July 3rd – Le gang des petits-suisses by Gérard Moncomble, 23 pages
I just hope that I can meet my goal! I am proud of the reading I have done so far! What are you reading this summer?
