Summer Reading Challenge
Starting June 21st. Join us for our fun reading challenge. Sign up by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get your personalized passport in preparation for your reading travels. You get a passport with destinations, you chose which books you want to read to fulfill each destination, and when you have finished reading and reviewing your book, you can move onto the next destination in your passport. Share your destinations and reading choices in the comments section for this page.
Cool prizes will be awarded at the end of the challenge (September 22nd).
- Sign up by emailing us a few things: 1) A name you want to use for your passport (can be your real name or even better a creative name from literature); and 2) A photo or image you’d like to use for your “passport.”
- When you receive your passport, pick any destination and then select a book that is appropriate for your destination. For example, if you get “France,” you can read a book set in France, by a French author, with France in the title, written in French, etc.It’s a good idea to have either myself or Book Worm approve it before you read it.
- Read your book.
- Post your 3 sentence (or less) review when you have completed the book. Reviews should be simple and include whether you liked it or not, the reason why it fits the destination, and a star rating (out of 5 stars).
- “Stamp” your passport and move on to the next destination of your choosing.
Tour Group Bonus points: If you chose to do so, you can form groups to tackle any one of the additional destinations posted below on June 21st. As a group, you must pick a book and all group members must read it the book in order for individuals to receive the 3 extra bonus points. Groups must include at least 2 people but there is no maximum number – but remember you only get the points if you all read it so bigger groups may be a risk! You can complete this part at any time in the challenge.
