Summer is winding down and so is the Bookshare Summer Reading Challenge. For the past six weeks Bookshare members have found adventure in Travel & the Great Outdoors; tasted new cuisines in Food & Cooking; worked up a sweat in Sports & Fitness; played and tinkered in Games & Gizmos; saved the earth in Sustainability & the Environment; and explored their creative side in Crafts & the Arts. Many of you finally read that book you’ve been meaning to read for a long time.
Thanks to all of the members who joined us on this journey and recommended their favorite books. Here are some of the highlights:
From @silly_singer: “How Can We Keep from Singing: Music and the Passionate Life” Has been on my 2 read list 4 2 long. Fixing that now.
From @DerryLawlor: Good news! Mozos: A Decade Running with the Bulls of Spain is available worldwide on Bookshare.
From @Littletia13: Finished #TexasHeat Book1 #LoneStarIntrigueSeries by #DebraWhiteSmith from @Bookshare giving it a 5 out of 5 rating.
From Jessica Bliss: #TurnItUp4Books This week I read the play 7 Stories by Morris Panych. I really liked this play; it was funny and had a lot of satire. I recommend this play to anyone who likes reading plays and who likes theatre and drama. Reading this play inspired me to read more plays from now on.
From @kevinpleong: Finished #OnAPaleHorse by #Piers Anthony from @Bookshare giving it a 5 out of 5 rating.
