Carl's Venture Forth
Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings has posted about his new Summer Reading Program, Venture Forth.
So I created my own Summer Reading program: Venture Forth. The name is a play on the idea that we are being allowed to venture forth into certain businesses and venues once again, and that reading always allows everyone to Venture Forth on an adventure.
This isn’t a challenge or event like I’ve hosted in the past. It is simply something that I want to do and want to share with you. If you desire to recapture a bit of that childhood summer experience, please feel free to be a part of this, and feel free to use the gif.
There are no rules. No number of books to read. No prizes outside of the great pleasure of reading. As part of the fun I did make a list of prompts that I will check off if I end up doing them, but the only thing motivating factor of my reading is finishing a book, and then going and pulling the next read off the shelves that calls out to me.
A book with a Michael Whelan cover
gift that was given to me
2020 book purchase
used bookstore find
novel that is part of a series
story that I have read before
book that I read as a child or teen
social media recommended book
recommendation from my wife (husband in my case)
title that is part of a series
checkout from my local library
book outdoors (at least 75% has to be read outside)
So, it runs from now until the 31st July and I thought I would participate and see how it goes. It's not a challenge, just a fun thing to take part in for the summer. Anyone is welcome to take part and I hope some will be tempted.
