Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there. If you are a mom, how on earth do you have time to read? Well done, you! If you have a mom, thank her for helping you learn to read, because I bet she was there for you, starting with singing the ABC song.
In other news: There are 42* days left in the 2014 Hub Reading Challenge. Don’t Panic!** That is plenty of time to finish 25 books. And I know many of you fine folks have already read some of the titles on the list, so you don’t even have to try and read .595 books per day to hit 25 on the 22nd.
I just finished The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks and thought it was delightful! I am not a fan of super hero comics, but you totally don’t have to be to appreciate Superhero Girl and her battles with day-to-day things. (Who hasn’t had a run-in with Skeptical Guy that just ruins your day?) What challenge book have you just finished?
* Ah, the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.
** Since I started with a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy reference, I figured I should continue.
The 2014 Hub Reading Challenge will run until 11:59PM EST on June 22nd. Keep track of what you are reading/listening to as you go along. Every Sunday we’ll have one of these check-in posts so you can share your thoughts about the book(s) you read/listened to that week, and share links to any reviews you post online. You can also share your thoughts via social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag, or join the 2014 Hub Challenge group on Goodreads. We will be compiling posts from various places online into a Storify collection. You can see the social media conversation below!
