Happy Father's Day and Happy Summer! Want to justify eating ice cream while you read? Need an excuse to walk through a bookstore? Hoping to discover a little something about a local landmark?
At my library, the kids start signing up for the summer reading program tomorrow. Since I don't think that I get to sign up (although I've never had the guts to ask), here's my Read for Fun program for 2009.
Like last year's chart, it's not intended to encourage reading lots of books. Instead, it marks the moments that we, as adults, can grab for reading. The five-minute summer vacations.

Please leave a comment to let me know that you're playing. There will be a reward sometime in September.
Once again, the chart includes eight squares already filled in with goals, with corresponding pictures (courtesy of Dover's bookplates) on the sticker sheet. Feel free to change the goals as needed. My friend Julie's son helped me with some of the goals. He's ten or so, and had great ideas.
Choose eight of the other stickers to customize your plan. Two are blank, in case you think of a goal that I couldn't.
Have fun! Please share some of your favorite moments!
There's a badge over there in the sidebar - feel free to borrow if you want one. Since I add badges about once a year, let me know if there's a problem.
