I've got badges to earn, and lists to make, and quizes to complete, and goals to set, and, and, and! It's like they took everything I like most in life, wrapped it up in books, and gave it to me. I'm as happy as a cat in cream. A dolphin in the sea. A worm in a book.
Anyway, I'm plugging along, entering my books and my time, and looking out for a chance to make a good quiz. I joined last week, and I've already reached at least level one for most of the badges!
The badges include:
You've Joined! This one was not difficult.
Reading Time: I forget if I set a goal or if there is a program goal, but I haven't made it yet.
Ebook Reading: I got this one.
Reading Goal: I set this for I forget how many books but I haven't made it yet.
Quiz Maker: I did one for Missoula.
Quiz Taker: I'm at level 15!
Quote: I used one from a poetry book. Also found a good one in Most Dangerous.
List: No surprise that I've earned this one!
Tag: I can throw some down!
Similar Title: This was fun, because I had just noticed similarities between two books.
Star Rating: Rate it, baby!
Shelve it!: This is just putting books on your Summer Reading list. I think it's supposed to only be library books. I'm at 8.
Comment : Soon I'll have something to say.
Summary: I'm not good at these. But I'll do one for a virtual badge!
Also, for my own personal Summer Reading, I want to do a book a day (#bookaday on twitter). I'll count on my picture books to keep me on track. Summer for me started on June 25th, and ends whenever the school year starts up again. So:
25: Missoula, Jon Krakauer
26: Lock In, John Scalzi
27:All-of-a-Kind Family Uptown, Sidney Taylor
28: The Spider's War, Daniel Abraham
29: Kiss Me Deadly, ed. Trisha Telep
30: Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, Lois McMaster Bujold
- The Darling Dahlia's and the Eleven O'Clock Lady, Susan Wittig Albert
- Starry River of the Sky, Grace Lin
- Only a Promise, Mary Balogh 6/29/16
