Summer is often seen as a prime month for reading. The lazy days, beach holidays, and extended travel time all lend themselves the conclusion that there will finally be time to catch up on all that reading you’ve been putting off during the first part of the year.
I don’t know about you, but my plans always outpace my reality. I’ve always been the person who carefully amasses books in my bag before a trip (or, Kindle, phones, etc.), only to return home with most of them unread. Sure, summer is slower, but it’s also warm and full of friends and activities and long days where you want to talk and soak in your surroundings, not bury yourself in a book. And this is all coming from an extremely prolific reader!
That’s why I’m glad there is now such a thing as Summer Book Bingo. Started by the amazing book podcast Books on the Nightstand, Summer Book Bingo (or Beach Blanket Book Bingo as they call it) is open to all who want to challenge themselves a little more with their summer reading. More on how to participate and why you should after the jump!
