High Summer Readathon, July 17-30

Me, getting ready to join another readathon:
The High Summer Readathon runs from July 17-30, with a bonus "Christmas in July" event during the last weekend. The readathon starts at 12 AM on Monday, July 17 and ends at 11:59 PM on Sunday, July 30. Read whatever you like! Get full info and sign up here.

My TBR pile is still a mystery, as I'm just finishing up my Alphabetically Yours challenge. I will post a shelfie once I have a better idea about what I'd like to read.

The readathon overlaps with a family visit, but I'm hoping to tempt my visitors with some lazy time in the hammock instead of non-stop sightseeing.

Updates to follow. Add your goals/books in the comments or use #HSreadathon on Twitter.

TBR Pile to start the challenge. Still deciding whether or not to read Christmas stories. Since we've got family visiting, my reading has been very slow this week and I'm still trying to finish a previous challenge. I hope to finish these quickly and add a few Christmas titles.
