When I started this challenge, I didn’t realize there was a huge event set for the first weekend of July, August, and September! Fourth of July, GenCon, and this month it’s Labor Day weekend! Geez, I should’ve looked at my calendar better.😀
So keeping in mind that today is the official first day of the Labor Day weekend, I would like to do a quick summary of how my progress has been going with my books.
The second book I read for this challenge was Bear Daughter by Judith Berman. Now that I’m done with it, I have started working on reading Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson. (The link is to the Amazon listing of the book.)
What have you learned from this book?
In Bear Daughter I learned a lot about the myths of west-coast Natives. Which really is exciting for me because I personally rarely see fiction written about Native culture. I love learning about Native American cultures, and so many people seem to just don’t care or want to work with it….so I really love this. Sorry, minor rant…Anyways!
In Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas, I have not really learned anything too educational. However, it has been making me feel reassured about me leaving my old job to search for a new one. So, that’s good I guess.🙂
Has the reading a page everyday helped you get into the book?
I can say that I’ve been averaging about a page a day, though I haven’t been reading everyday….but writing a reminder in my planner has been helping me a lot!
Have you changed anything about the way you’re keeping track of your progress?
I’ve tried adding comments, as you can see above in the Dear Daughter progress. It was fun writing my thoughts about it. However, I realized after my first one that since I am posting my progress with the books for you all would see them, I could potentially spoil a book for you. And that’s never fun.
Bear Daughter might have been the second book I read for this challenge, but it’s the first one to get 5 stars! Judith Berman did a wonderful job with this book, and is one I really recommend. This is the first book that I want to keep in my collection to share in the future with my friends and family!
Now to find a place to put it where I won’t lose it as I read through the rest of my collection.😀
