#MustReadin2017 Spring Check-in

Goals for 2017

For this year, I have decided not to participate in any reading challenges except for one, which I don’t even really consider a challenge since it’s what I planned to do anyway. Let’s call it a reading community, shall we?

Diversity on the Shelf 2016: Wrap Up Post & Link-Up

8 Books on My Read Harder Winter Reading List

So, in my last post, I pledged that I was going to push myself to finish the 2016 Book Riot Read Harder challenge. Like the big nerd I am, I sat down with the checklist and went through each category to see where I still needed to fill in the blanks. (I had to give myself some leeway on this.

Maybe next year on that.)

Anyway, I have seven (okay, eight–one is “read a book aloud to someone” and that requires my daughter’s cooperation) slots left to fill, so here are the books I’m planning to read to fill them.

Diversity on the Shelf Link Up: December 2016

Link up your December reviews here! I’m going to post a separate linky for wrap-up posts/the giveaway around the middle of the month, so watch this space.

It’s almost over, y’all. We made it to the end. I hope everyone is happy with the progress they’ve made with the challenge.

Just a reminder that I will not be hosting the challenge next year, so if someone else is interested in taking over or hosting it themselves, please feel free. And if you haven’t already, please check out the Dumbledore’s Army Readathon taking place in January.

As for this month’s reads, please encourage each other by clicking on links and reading and commenting on reviews! It’s not required, but it is nice. It’s also a great way to build up a community of readers committed to reading diversely.

Diversity on the Shelf Link Up: November 2016

So, this is obviously very late because this month has been…well, you know how it’s been.

Next month is the last month of the challenge, so I’ll be posting two link ups: one for December reads & one for wrap-up posts. I’ll use the wrap up post linky to do the giveaway.

Diversity on the Shelf Link Up: September 2016

I was about to get all teacher-y and ask about AYP (adequately yearly progress). As it is, I just hope everyone is plugging along and moving closer toward their goal for the challenge. I’m right on track. How are you doing?

Btw, I am still looking for someone to take over hosting the challenge for next year. If you’re interested, drop me a line at theenglishist @ gmail.

Diversity on the Shelf Link Up: July 2016

June had the most posted reviews so far (27 as I’m typing this!). Let’s make July EVEN BETTER, yes? Yes.

Also, please encourage each other by clicking on links and reading and commenting on reviews! It’s not required, but it is nice. It’s also a great way to build up a community of readers committed to reading diversely. Okay? Okay.

Oh, since I switched my hosting, the link ups will now open in a new window. I am bummed since it was so nice to see them all pretty right there below the banner. Oh well.
