2013 Reading Challenge!

Posted by Steph on April - 4 - 2013

reading challenge logo - participantI have been looking everywhere for a reading challenge to participate in and finally found one that I think I can do: The YALSA 2013 The Hub Reading Challenge!

This challenge started on February 3, but I’ll give it a go anyway.   This one has a wide variety of titles to choose from (83) and you only have to pick 25. (Click on the picture to go to the YALSA site to find the list of title options.) It will give me an opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and read some Junior/YA non-fiction and graphic novels and (hopefully) improve my reader advisory skills.

I’ve read already one, Seraphina, which counts toward the challenge too so that’s exciting! At the moment these are the titles I intend to read (it may change) and I will have to add some more to make it 25.
