I Dig Reading: April edition

This month I joined Katharine Owens’ I Dig Reading challenge. The challenge is simple: pledge to donate money to charity for every book you read. You set the amount. A dollar, two dollars, five dollars, a bazillion dollars, whatever you want!

This month, I read TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD by Harper Lee, FIRST TEST by Tamora Pierce, BETRAYAL by Lee Nichols and THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII by Alison Weir. That’s four books … and ok, fine, I haven’t actually finished that last one yet. It’s a behemoth of a book, my friends, and I’m reading it for research purposes, which means I’m reading veeeeeeery sloooooooowly with a highlighter, pen and tabs. But we’re still counting it in April!

The charity I chose is Crits for Water, which I already talked about here and which you can find more about (and join the cause) here.

See you in May!

    Ack! Tamora Pierce–AWESOME!!! She’s one of my all-time favorites from childhood (and still in adulthood).

    Oi, I have no idea how many books I read–I totally forgot it was the end of April. I’d better go tally up, and WHAT A GOOD IDEA! I am so gonna donate to Crits for Water too!

      Yay for Crits for Water! I really like Tamora Pierce too. First Test was a re-read. It had been several years and I saw it on my bookshelf and was like, Time for another go!

    Cool charity. I’m about to “revisit” To Kill a Mockingbird again. I haven’t read it since high school, but I’m sure I’ll still love it. 🙂

      Can you believe I’d never read To Kill a Mockingbird? My high school American Lit teacher didn’t require it. Such a shame! It wound up going on my list of favorite books ever.

  3. How fantastic Meredith!!! Way to go! I will connect a link up on the Challenge page. Thanks so much for joining in,

  4. I also believe that sometimes people aren’t followed because they don’t put enough of themselves out there for others to decide if they like them or not. They play it safe. Better to be liked or not liked for who you are than to be unknown. Interesting post Meredith!
