Need Help with Summer Reading?
Last week I wrote about some of the classic books that PBS suggested people read (or love) the most. But if you’re looking for a new book or genre to read, Goodreads has a list of suggestions for you.
Goodreads has brought in Lori Hettler, the founder and moderator of The Next Best Book Club, to put together a couple of curated lists of summer reading challenges. The two lists are broken up into sub-categories to help you make it through the challenge.
List 1: Beginner Level
- Summer-related tasks
- Tasks to stretch your comfort zone
List 2: Expert Level
- June Reads
- July Reads
- August Reads
- What to read during any month to stretch your reading comfort zones
These two lists include broader challenges (i.e., reading a book of poetry) to more specific tasks (i.e., reading a book that features a yellow, green, or “sandy” cover).
This could be a great challenge for people who feel like their reading list is lagging or that they’re stuck in a rut, reading in the same genre.
Have you started this Goodreads challenge? What list are you using and what reading task are you most looking forward to?
