A-Book-A-Day Summer 2017

A-Book-A-Day Summer 2017

I first saw this on the blog by Readerbuzz and I knew I had to try it.

This wonderful idea came from Donalyn Miller! Here is my favorite quote from her blog: It doesn’t matter if you actually read a book every day or not. Dedicate more time to read. Celebrate your right to read what you want. Make reading plans. Share and collect book recommendations. Connect with other readers.The #bookaday challenge is personal, not a competition. Finish that series. Tackle that epic historical your mother gave you for your birthday (last September). Try audiobooks. How would you like to grow as a reader this summer?

I am challenging myself, my friends, my coworkers, and my students to read a book a day this summer! It’s an average- so if you read more than one book a day, but you don’t read one the next, it counts!

You can read a variety of books:

  • picture books
  • chapter books
  • audiobooks
  • Poetry
  • nonfiction
  • fiction

You set your start and end dates!

Keep a list of your books and post on some social media site-your blog, twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc with the hashtag #bookaday!

Comment below if you are trying to accomplish this crazy summer goal and we can keep each other motivated I’ll be posting here on my blog, Instagram (mrs_bookdragon), and Twitter (Mrs_Ennis_OMS.
