Reading Challenges General Information
This summer, let's get reading!
When you read a book, you have the chance to earn points towards the grand prize draw in two ways.
First, get 2 points per book read between June 27th and August 21st once you submit a review. Make sure to submit reviews for every book you have read this summer by August 21st.
Second, if you read a book in one of the 6 reading challenges, you can earn 1 bonus point. When you have completed a bonus reading challenge, this can be indicated at the same time as you submit a review. Each bonus challenge can only be counted once, so there is a maximum of 6 bonus points possible per reader.
To submit your reviews, make sure you have registered for the Teen Summer Reading Challenge here.
