Summer Reading Challenge - third check in

Stephanie, Elizabeth, and I are back today for the third check in for our Summer Reading Challenge - 12 books in 12 weeks. Just three weeks to go. Remember you need to have participated in the challenge as well as linked up at least once to be eligible for the giveaway on August 20th, the final check in.

We hit the jackpot with our children's book haul from the library over the past three weeks. Since I just pick what to borrow based on how the spine looks as I peruse the shelves we usually end up with quite a few duds. However, there were only a few this last trip - one of them was a book about trains that was pretty much a novel, a boring novel. The rest though were great. We enjoyed reading them so much we were checking off categories from the list left and right. I couldn't narrow it down to just three this week.

Here is what we've been reading:

That leaves us with 6 more categories in the bunch. Since we hit our 12 books goal already our new goal will be checking off all the categories.

  2. Congrats on hitting your 12! We did too! I love the challenge of finding books based on theme. It's much more difficult than I suspected but I'm lovin' the challenge!

  3. We haven't been to the library in a couple of weeks. This reminds me that we need to change that ASAP!
    Did you ever read the Little Golden books as a kid? Those were some of my favorites (probably because they were longer and extended bedtime - ha!), and you could probably get two birds with one stone reading those. :)

  4. You guys are reading a ton of books! Most of our library kids books are in rough shape, so I usually look for the 'nicer' ones to check out. I'm hoping we can read quite a bit when I'm on maternity leave :)

  5. We have read precisely four books this summer. All of them related to cars/trucks. Of course, we've read each of them approximately a billion times each. I could recite them right now for you, if you want ;) How was Demolition? That one sounds like it has Ez potential.
