Major Upcoming Events in Blogland!

I really thought blogland would quiet down during the summer months, but the truth is it must be too hot to be out and about and it's really heating up around here. The next few weeks are going to be seriously busy. And that's not even counting all of the real life stuff I have to do! :)

So here's the scoop on the cool stuff coming up....

First of all, Strange Culture is hosting a very cool blogathon this weekend that I'll be participating in if I can get my act together. Let's celebrate Father's Day!

Next week, The Secret Life of Kat is hosting Summer Camp which is basically one long carnival week, capped off by a camp out that you can participate in via twitter. I don't know if I'll be able to do that (if I had a backyard maybe!) but it's cool that she is.

The Second Annual 40 Day Fast is going to start June 23rd and though it's going to be a little tweaked this year, it should be good. Definitely look forward to that.

Also starting June 23rd and running through June 27th we're hosting the Summer Reading Extravaganza at the Friendly Book Nook. Don't feel like you have to be a book-a-holic like me to participate, it will also be a carnival style week of all the best summer reading tips for you and your kids. There will be prizes to be had as well.

Then June 28th-30th we're hosting a group read discussion at the Friendly Book Nook of The Girl Who Stopped Swimming. I can't wait to get other's opinions on this book. Elizabeth, for example, didn't like it.

Also June 28th-29th is a Read-a-thon hosted by Dewey of the Hidden Side of a Leaf. I'm also thinking about hitting the ALA that weekend, it all depends on whether or not gas has gone up to 20 dollars a gallon.

On July 1st, Jen of Daily Mish Mash is having the second Movie Madness Carnival.

So hopefully out of all of that you were able to find something that you like and can participate in!
