2011 Summer Reading Online!

All you really have to do is three things: Set yourself a reading goal, read, and review books! That’s it. Really. We’ve got both a Myspace and a Blogger account set up, so there’s a way for everyone to participate!

Just set yourself a reading goal -- how many books you want to finish reading by the end of the summer -- and write little summaries/reviews of what you read.

You pick whatever books you want, post a blog entry stating your reading goals, and then post your write ups after each book. If you want you can even wait to post the write ups 'til near the end of the Summer Reading Program, but I don't recommend it because you have to have everything "turned in" by the last day.

If you're interested, leave a comment here along with the url for whatever site/blog you plan on posting your write ups so we can all read them & see what you're reading. You never know -- someone else might be doing the same book as you, or you might even discover a great new book to check out! I’ll post a link on the side of this blog with your information so everyone can see what you’re reading (and you can see what everyone else is reading!)

Don’t have a somewhere to post reviews? Comment here with your name, email and goal and I’ll post your reviews for you or add you as an author!

You can sign up anytime, and start reviewing your books beginning May 28!  Summer Reading Online will run through August 20.  That'll give us about 12 full weeks of reading.

If I can manage to get some donations I may even try to work something out with random prizes or giveaways either at the end of the program or during.

Please feel free to share this with anyone and everyone!  The more participants we get the better!  A badge for your site will be forthcoming soon.

I will post my summer reading write-ups here.

I am on goodreads, but don't get in there too often as I prefer LibraryThing (saffron12).
