The Coyer Summer Vacation, hosted by Because Reading Is Better Than Real Life and Fantasy is More Fun begins June 21st and runs through September 5th. 

1. You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and August 15th -on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc.Yes, that means you can sign up until August 15th! But don’t wait, you’ll miss most the fun!
2. You must link that sign-up post below (don’t link to your blog, link to the sign-up post).
3. You must review books somewhere & link the reviews to the review linky to be eligible for one of the grand prize giveaways.

The Coyer Summer Vacation challenge will so include Read-A-Thons, Twitter parties, and Facebook chats.

July 20th @ 4:00 PM EST
August 24th @ 4:00 PM EST

My goals for this challenge are:
•Read at least 30 books
•Review at least 30 books
•Attend at least one Twitter party
•Take part in at least 3 Read-A-Thons
•Listen to 3 or more audio books. (I've never really listened to an audio book, but recently download Agatha Christie's The Murder at the Vicarage)
•Read 5+ paperbacks. (Lately I have been reading all E-Books. I miss the feel of having a paperback in my hand.)

I have no set reading schedule. I will be reading ARCS from Netgalley, author provided books for review, books for blog tours, books that I have purchased for my Kindle along with freebies and catching up on my personal TBR list. 

I will be updating my progress on my blog at the end of each week along with keeping a Goodreads shelf for Coyer.

My son and I are both taking part in summer reading programs at our library also. He is doing the Tot program (He is 17 months) so we will be working on his together. This is my first year doing a summer reading program since I was in middle school so I am looking forward to it! We can listen to audio books, read paperbacks & hardcovers or e-books. Coyer will definitely help me with my reading program and my summer reading goals.
