2nd Annual Beat The Heat Readathon Sign-Up Post!


So this is my Sign-Up post for this challenge, hosted by Novel Heartbeat and Phantasmic Reads! It only lasts three weeks, but hopefully it will inspire me to really keep my reading up to date and get plenty done this month, as I feel a little behind. This will also act as my progress post so keep checking back here if you want to keep up with how I do each day! I can't wait to get involved!

For those that don't know, this Readathon tracks your reading progress over the next three weeks and is filled with all sorts of fun challenges and tasks along the way hosted at various blogs. Sign-Ups are still open so feel free to go and sign up by clicking the button at the top of this post!

My Goals:
I have already expressed a wish to read a fair few books this month and I'm not doing too well so far, 'Life Of Pi' took me over a week to read! This next three weeks is my chance to really get into this reading properly! I'm going to set myself a challenge of 6 books, that's just two books a week. I feel like I could do more and I hope to beat it, but I think this is a reasonable goal to be getting on with.
