Donalyn Miller posted about the #bookaday challenge here and it got me thinking. Summer starts sooner for some than it does for others. Being in the later category, I am not quite ready to be in ‘summer mindset’, though the #bookaday challenge has me updating my library holds and thinking through my summer reading list.
As I wrote about last week, my summer reading will have a different feel this summer as I prepare myself for my third grade classroom. Since I'm mixing things up, why not commit to #bookaday as well?
Summer commitments are hard to make. The freedom of time and choice, that is part of what summer is about. Will I feel confined by a number I need to achieve or will it inspire me to reach higher? I have taken on the challenge for Christmas Break, but that is just a couple of weeks and the short days lend to 'needing' to curl up with a book - every evening and each morning. What will happen when daylight beckons? Will I be willing to 'give up' a baseball game to read instead? These are hefty things to weigh.
What about you? What are you thinking about tackling for summer?
