Beat the Heat Readathon July 29-August 18, 2013 Update


I am glad the Beat the Heat Readathon hosted by Auntie Spinelli Reads and Phantasmic Reads was extended for another week! I’m doing ok with my original goals and hope to knock off the 1st goal this weekend! The 7 Habits is such a great book, I’ve been furiously taking notes as I read so I don’t forget anything. As a result, it’s taking me longer to read than usual but it’s an invaluable resource and eye-opening read.


1. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey – 5 habits done, 2 to go! – done! So excited to finish this and a FANTASTIC read!
2. Make Today Count by John Maxwell
3. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle – done!
4. Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley
5. Complete 1 mini-challenge
6. Visit and comment on new-to-me bloggers and blogging friends that are participating.

What are you reading this week? Whatever it is, hope it’s a good one! Happy reading!

  1. I love the 7 habits books! I read the teen version way back in the day (thanks Mom) and I still think back to habits I learned from it. I should definitely check out the adult one now 🙂

  2. I did the HS Readathon as well and currently focussing on [Jane] Austen in August challenges – one has begun 1st – 30th the other begins on the 18th thru end of month. This is annual for me and motivates me to get thru some of the extra JA I put aside because of publisher reading for reviews…

    Hope you get some completed for your Beat the Heat & still spend best time with your boys!!
