Emily at Books & Cleverness is hosting a Dusting Off The Shelf Read-A-Thon starting tomorrow (August 1st-15th) in which I’m going to participate. Make sure to check out her blog and post! It’s all about finally reading those poor neglected books that have been collecting dust for six months or more…I’ve listed the books I want to read below by the challenges she has set, and I will be posting updates with my progress about every three days or so.

  • CHALLENGE: Read a book set in the past.
  • The Known World by Edward P. Jones (about black slaves in the US; first published 2003)
  • CHALLENGE: Read at least 100 pages a day.
  • It’s not too much to be impossible, so I will definitely try to reach this goal!
