The Amazing Read: Summer Reading Challenge 2013
Welcome to Summer Reading 2013! We're continuing our reading challenge this year, encouraging everyone to read a little outside of your comfort zone from week to week. We'll post a topic each week to go along with our theme this year, Have Book, Will Travel, and ask you to respond by sharing your reading choices through your Summer Reading Program log, comments on the blog post, through Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, or in conversation with family and friends.
This week's challenge is simple: Have Book - Will Travel this Summer. So, let's read something that has a summer theme. It could be a beach read, a scary campfire story, a picture book about learning to swim, or a grilling cookbook. This challenge is for all ages and all reading tastes. I'm going to read Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. I've listed a few other suggestions for different ages below. What are you reading?
