It’s time to re-read some books! Now you can add as many read dates to your books as your wish. What’s more, your BookLikes Reading Challenge will include the re-read titles, and your reading history will be presented on a book page and on your shelf.
To add more dates, click add a new date, insert the started and finished reading dates and Save.
The book on your Shelf will receive a re-read icon. Once you press it, you’ll see all your dates, you can easily update them and add new ones.
You can view your reading history in the Shelf table view and on the book page. The books with multiple read dates will be also counted to your BookLikes Reading Challenge.
P.S. The following card seems to be perfect for today's release :) Let's do it!
I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why can't GR do this? They have been around forever, and still don't have re-read dates. Bl is now my favorite book site.
( This is me, all the time! I am doomed. :D )
Pages for Progress is asking people to post the pages they read between now and September 8, to help promote literacy. They have raised $20,015 so far. The new page goal is 2,000,015.
Someone on here mentioned Freading a while back. I had never heard of it, so I checked to see if my library used it. They do, so I just checked this out. I've heard about this book, but wasn't sure whether to read it or not, since I'm not sure how I'd like a book based on Lydia Bennett. But then I saw it on Freading, and thought I'd give it a chance. I have two weeks to read it, so I'll try to get to it soon.
July 2, 2014-I just finished the first story, The Rambler's Bride by Linda Goodnight. I loved it. Jericho's brother died a couple months ago, and left him his property in Kansas. Jericho comes to claim the land, but instead falls in love with his brother's widow, Esther. This was such a sweet story, and I can't wait to read the others.
July 8, 2014- I just read the second story, Lovebirds at the Heartbreak Cafe by Janet Tronstad, and loved it. Penny Rose has been widowed for two months. She married her deceased sister's husband, because he had lung cancer, and their six kids would be orphans once he died. She goes to the cafe looking for work as a waitress, and meets Buddy Hamilton, who is a truck driver. He soon falls in love with Penny and the kids.
I received a copy of this book from the authors in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
I'm surprised at how much I am enjoying this. I was afraid it would be boring, but it is really very interesting.
I read this last year, but never could find the other two books in the trilogy. Then, last week I found the third book at the thrift store for a quarter, so I grabbed it, thinking I'd put it aside until I got the second book. Then, yesterday I found the first two books there and bought both of them, so I'd have the whole set. I thought I go and and read the whole series in order this time.
I'm not doing as well as I hoped, but I have read four books, so far. My original goal was fifteen, and I'm not going to read all the books I had listed before. I don't know why, but whenever I choose a set of books to read next, I seem to lose interest in reading them. Five of the books on my list are Kindle books, and I can't get into them at all. I think I'll save them for a later time. I will still try to read as many of the paperbacks as I can before Sunday night. I'm off tomorrow, so hopefully I can read a lot then.
Here's the books I've read so far:
The Catcher in the Rye
Where Azaleas Bloom
I am currently reading Touching Stars, and I hope to finish it tonight.
I won this book in a contest, and I'm really glad I did. I had never heard of Lisa Harris before this, but I will be on the lookout for more of her books.

I always loved the summer reading program at the library. This is a great challenge for me because I haven't been reading as much lately. This challenge began at the beginning of May, and ends at the beginning of September. Your goal has to be at least five books, but the rest is up to how much you want to read.
My goal will be 100 books.
Here's where I got the challenge: http://katiesbookblog.com/2014/04/2014-book-blogger-summer-reading-program.html
