The Reading Iditarod

3 more days until the Iditarod starts! Are you excited? I am! :)
During the Iditarod my younger brothers and I do the reading Iditarod. The reading Iditarod is where you read a certain amount of pages based on how many miles the Iditarod is. Like this year they will be taking the northern route which is 975 miles so we would read 975 pages. It is a fun, friendly competition that we enjoy doing each year. When a musher is the first to reach a certain checkpoint they get a prize, so when we get to that same checkpoint we also get a little prize. Once we finish the race we get a free book.
(Just to clarify, this is just something we do as a family. It's not something we actually sign up to do.) :)

These are the books that I chose to read this year. 


  1. Oh, that sounds like so much fun, Rebekah!!!! :D What a great idea! I'm super excited for the Iditarod too. :) Oh, I love your book choices. I've read the two by Wanda Brunstetter (so good!!!) and I just got "They Called her Mrs. Doc" from a book sale Monday. :)

    Thanks for sharing! I might keep track of the books I read during the Iditarod...just for fun. ;)

    1. It is really fun!
      I'm glad your excited for the Iditarod too! It's so fun. :)
      So far I'm enjoying "A Cousin's Prayer"! Book sales are great! I just recently got "They Called Her Mrs. Doc" too! :)
      Oh you should keep track! That would be fun! :)

    2. I hope you enjoy "A Cousins Prayer" and "A Cousins Challenge" as much as "A Cousins Promise"! :)
      Oh, cool!
