Summer Reading

So who’s got reading plans this summer? I know it’s that time of the year when we see articles about beach reads, blockbusters, etc. I like the idea of summer reads but honestly I think my reading tends to be the same year round.

That said there are two reading challenges/projects that have come up that I’ll be participating in. I know, like I really need another challenge when I’m trailing behind on my challenges. Oh well, it’s all in the spirit of community.

jlc9The first one is the Japanese Literature Reading Challenge hosted by Dolce Bellezza. This is the 9th year that she is hosting this wonderful challenge that encourages readers to read works by Japanese authors. I have participated several years and even if I read just one book I’m always happy to add discover a new author.

I don’t have a list of potential books yet but I wouldn’t mind reading something again by Banana Yoshimoto, Keigo Higashino, or Yasunari Kawabata. I’ll keep you posted! Oh and for this challenge all you need to do is read at least one book and it runs through the end of January 2016.

estellaproject3The other project is Estella’s Society Project Season 3. Andi and Heather have put together a great list of books to choose from which you can check here. Read one or more of the titles and share your thoughts.

Some of the books on that made the list have been on my TBR list for a while so this might be the perfect time to get to them right? This season runs through September 1, 2015 and you can read one, two, however many books you can.

Are you joining in some of these?
