Reading Challenge at the halfway point
Happy July! Hope your summer is going well. Mine has been made substantially better by the addition of some rockers on our front porch and the fact the weather so far has been warm but not too humid and often with a breeze. Reading is absolutely one of the best methods of self care for me and hopefully has me modeling a love of books to my kids. I also appreciate how the different categories in the MMD challenge provides direction and the push I need to read outside my comfort zone.
At the midway point from the reading for fun path (the one I'm focusing on) I've completed 6 categories:
a book set somewhere I'm interested in but never been:
A Year of Living Danishly
a juicy memoir:
Talking as Fast as I Can
a book about books or reading:
Howards End is on the Landing
a book in a genre I usually avoid:
Becoming and Belonging
a book you don't want to admit you're dying to read ( I modified this one to a book I'm embarrassed I've never read): 84, Charing Cross Road
a book I was excited to buy but had not read yet:
I've only completed one category of the reading to grow path but do hope to complete a couple more while largely focused on the "oomph path"
Anyone else attempting this year's challenge?
What are you reading?
