How About Doing a Couple of Summer Challenges?

There are a couple of great summer challenges that work well with our Classics Club challenge. Do either of these interest you? Do you know of others not listed here?

20 Books of Summer

It’s time once again for the 20 Books of Summer, hosted by 746 Books. This year the event will be kicking off on Wednesday 1 June and finishing on Thursday 1 September. If you want to join in, just take the Books of Summer image, and pick your own 10, 15, or 20 books you would like to read. Post the link to your choices in the post’s comments here.

Big Book Summer Challenge

The Big Book Summer Reading Challenge kicks off this Friday, May 27! This is the 10th anniversary of the challenge, so the host, Sue Jackson of Book by Book, has some fun surprises planned, including a double end-of-summer giveaway and some cool Big Book Summer products. In case you’re not familiar with Big Book Summer, it is a fun and very easy-going challenge that anyone can participate in (even if it’s Big Book Winter where you live!). A Big Book is 400 or more pages, and you can read just one over the whole season or two or however many you want. Some like to choose a whole stack and devote the summer to Big Books, even though we might not get through them all. The details will be explained in a post on Friday, May 27, on the blog (and she will post a video on YouTube, too), but in the meantime, you can check out the post from Big Book Summer 2021

  1. This is not officially a challenge, more a readalong, but it could become a challenge for some.
    Anyway, in case you are interesting to join a few of us to read a French classic (published in 1913) in French (1 chapter a day for a bit over a month), please come and see:

  2. Yes, I have been engaging with 20 Books of Summer for a few years now and, as it happens, I fully intend to get through a couple or so titles on my Classics Club list which have been languishing for too long.
