This is such a comprehensive list! The Reading Quest is another challenge taking place in August, and runs through early September, if you’re interested in adding that too. It’s hosted by readatmidnight.com. I’ll definitely be looking into a bunch of these!
@Aimal – Thanks! I added The Reading Quest to the list.
