Looking Ahead To June...

As I just mentioned, The Worthing Saga discussion begins June 2nd at Becky's Online Reading Group.

MotherReader's 48 Hour Reading Challenge is only one week away! "To sign up, you'll need to visit her blog and leave a comment. While you're there you're probably going to want to make a note of all the rules and guidelines." And "The weekend is June 6–8, 2008. Read and blog for any 48-hour period within the Friday-to-Monday-morning window. Start no sooner than 7:00 a.m. on Friday the sixth and end no later than 7:00 a.m. Monday. So, go from 7:00 p.m. Friday to 7:00 p.m. on Sunday... or maybe 7:00 a.m. Saturday to 7:00 a.m. Monday works better for you. But the 48 hours do need to be in a row."

I've got a Librarians Choices meeting the week of the 9th. That will be fun and exhausting I'm sure.

June's Bookworm Carnival is almost upon us..."you have until the 13th of June to submit your posts for the 12th edition of the Bookworms Carnival - that's two weeks from today. The theme is fairy tales, and your submissions should be e-mailed to untuneric at gmail dot com."

The Spring Reading Thing ends June 19th. I've still got quite a few books to go on that challenge. Though most would probably say I've done enough... Spring Reading Thing 2008 March 20-June 19th

The Once Upon A Time II Challenge also ends around there. (June 20th??? I think?) I've read way more than the five necessary books.

There's a new challenge--a short challenge--that you might be interested in...A Midsummer Night's Challenge; host: A Chain of Letters; dates: June 1, 2008 - June 25th, 2008; books required: 2--one by Shakespeare

Dewey's 2nd 24 Hour-Read-a-Thon..."The 2nd 24 Hour Read-a-thon will be June 28th to June 29th. It starts at 9AM Pacific DST. Here is a time zone map. It will help you figure out what time the Read-a-thon starts for you. If I calculated this correctly which is always debatable--someone could double-check for me if they like--it starts 11 AM Central time. You can find out more about the Read-a-thon challenge here. To find out about how you can help Dewey behind-the-scenes of the read-a-thon, go here. "

Both the Here Be Dragons Challenge and the Themed Reading Challenge end June 30th...a day that happens to be my sister's birthday.
