Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon Update and High Summer Read-a-Thon Goals

Ready for things to get complicated? As of today, we are currently participating in two overlapping read-a-thons, Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon and High Summer Read-a-Thon.


I've been participating in the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon since the 14th (although rather lamely), but Darian just returned home last night. So...he'll be putting in his stats from Sunday (the 20th) to the 24th and then participating fully with me for the High Summer Read-a-Thon.

Two read-a-thons means two sets of goals and stats. My goals for Wicked Wildfire have already been posted, so I'm just going to be listing my goals for High Summer here. Darian will be listing his goals for both. Additionally, I'll be posting his current progress for the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon.

To keep things less complicated from here forward, we will alternate days. Tomorrow will be an update for High Summer and Wednesday will be Wicked Wildfire. Thursday it's back to High Summer, Friday will be the wrap up post for Wicked Wildfire, and then it's High Summer through the weekend. Whew.

Alright...let's get on with this atrociously confusing post.

Elle's Goals for High Summer Read-a-Thon 

Total Reading Time Goal : 17 hours (1020 minutes)

Total Pages Goal : 1200 pages

Completed Books Goal : 4

Planned Reading : 

Bonus Books :

This list was transferred directly from my goals for Wicked Wildfire. However, I'm finding that I'm totally struggling with The Grapes of Wrath, so I may need to mix up my classics and contemporaries to keep myself from falling asleep (which has happened twice - nearly three times - with Grapes). I'll still be using the same books, but will probably be jumping back and forth between the "planned reading" and "bonus books" lists to keep things moving smoothly. Let's hope that plan works.

Lost yet? I hope not. We'll be continuing on with our reads and will be back here tomorrow night with another update. The reading will work for both read-a-thons, but you'll be seeing progress bars for our stats based on the High Summer Read-a-Thon Goals. Whee!


  1. Good luck, I'll be following along and cheering you both on!

    1. Oh it was such a sad state of affairs... :)
