A July Reading Challenge
Posted by STAIR-Annapolis on June 30, 2021
Ok, ok, ok. So July doesn't technically start until tomorrow, but it's never too early to jump into a good book!
If you're deep into your summer reading list already, this month's reading challenge should be a breeze. Summertime reading is about freedom--freedom to explore new books or to re-read old favorites without deadlines or commitments. If you don't like a book, skip it! If you find a new author you love, read everything! If you've been longing to revisit a beloved series, lazy summer days are made for comfort reading!
We hope your summer reading list is full of feel-good titles that keep you page-turning well into July's long days and warm nights. What's been your favorite summer read so far this year? Let us know in the comments below or join the conversation on our Facebook page.
Remember, our friends at Anne Arundel County Public Library have planned an incredible summer of reading for kids, with recommended reading lists, prizes, and fantastic events all summer long. Visit them online or stop by your local AACPL branch for more info or to register for the Summer @ Your Library 2021 program. You can also find recommended reading lists for all grade levels from Anne Arundel County Public Schools here.
For a simple July reading challenge that's easy to adapt to any age, reading level, or genre preference, follow the list below. One book per week, every week this month:
- Read a book with the word "summer" in the title.
- Read a book set on the coast or near a body of water.
- Read a book by an author from your favorite vacation spot.
- Read a book about a road trip, camping trip, beach vacation, or some other typical summer travel activity.
Good luck! We'll be back next month with a new reading challenge for you. Until then, keep reading!
