Summertime Means Summer Challenges!

Hi everyone! So, as of yesterday, I am officially finished my exams (although Alex still has at least one to go :D). I started to think about what I wanted to do with my summer, blog-wise and reading-wise, and I decided that instead of reading my way through the teen section of the book store, I'm going to give myself a bit more of a challenge.

So my real inspiration for my Summer Challenges came about a couple weeks ago at work - I work in a bookstore - when I pulled Gone With the Wind off the shelving cart. It is a ginormous book. 1500 pages. But I had an immediate desire to read it, so I looked up some reviews (amazing), and was sold.

Along with reading this monstrous book, my first challenge is going to include watching the entire movie, start to finish. This is something I have failed to do on multiple occasions, and I am super excited to have the whole experience of reading the book first. It's such a classic, timeless movie that is such a part of our culture that I feel like it's about time I just sit myself down and watch the whole thing. Same goes for Casablanca.

So I've got a couple other ideas up my sleeve for the summer, including, of course, a Harry Potter marathon, so I'm definitely back, and hopefully I don't bore all of you to death with these crazy challenges. Just be grateful I gave up on Anna Karenina when I did :) So I'll be putting up a little section in the sidebar where you can follow my progress, if you're into that...

Oh! And look forward to some vlogs in the near future, along with some geocaching, seeing as I'm no longer juggling 10 different activites at once. The lack of stress is amazing.
