Sweet Summer Read-a-thon Goals

       Finally! The summer is here. I cannot wait for those long days filled with sun, sand, and, most importantly, books. To kick-off this wondrous season of lazy days and heat waves, we decided to participate in The Book Tower's Sweet Summer Read-a-thon.
       The event starts on June 9th and goes until the 15th. The goal is to read as many books as possible and compete in some pretty cool (or hot) challenges along the way.
       So, we will be posting every day of the challenge with our updates, progress, and frustrations.
       In the spirit of the challenge, we are all making lists of the books we would like to read during the week and challenges we want to complete.
