Beat the Heat Readathon (Goals Update!)

Beat the Heat Readathon
I am a reading challenge junkie...and I make no apologies!  The Beat the Heat Readathon is hosted by Jessi @ Novel Hearbeat and Reanna @ Phantasmic Reads and runs from August 11th-September 1st.  Since I'm already participating in the Bookish Bingo Challenge, I thought this would coincide nicely. 

Here are the rules!
  • The Beat the Heat Readathon runs from August 11th to September 1st. What does this readathon entail, you ask? Well, read as much or as little as you want – the main point is to READ! You set your own goal, and for three weeks you read as many books as you can/want to reach your goal!
  • There will be mini-challenges throughout the Readathon for participants, along with a grand prize giveaway at the end!
  • Sign up here at Novel Heartbeat or over at Phantasmic Reads. You may join whenever you like, but to be eligible for our grand prize giveaway, you must sign up by August 24th.
  • To join, all you have to do is make a sign-up post – even if it’s just a “Let’s do this!” thing – and add your post URL to the linky below! You can put your goals and progress (will be required for the final giveaway) in your sign-up post, or you can make it separate. Totally up to you! (You are welcome to use the template we provide as well.)
  • In order to enter for the grand prize, you must have a post to keep track of your progress so we can see that you participated.
Doesn't that sound like a delightful, stress-free, fun time?  I think so!  Use the links above to sign up if you'd like to participate :)  I haven't solidified my goals, as of yet, but I'll definitely post them up as the start date gets closer. 

Goals for the Challenge!
1.  Finish An Unnecessary Woman by Rabih Alameddine.  I'm about 75% done with this book, so it shouldn't be a problem at all.
2.  Read the Divergent series by Veronica Roth.  It's been sitting on my shelf and the movie just came out on DVD, so I'm going to finally plow in.
3.  Read more than I have in the past week, for sure.  I've seriously been slacking.

Happy reading!
