Starting June 14th log each book you read here. Each book you read earns you an entry into our end of summer prize drawing. Winners will be drawn and announced in early September. Prizes include gift cards, book bundles, water bottles, drawstring bags, and other fun items. All winners will be contacted by email. You must be entering grades 6-12 in the fall to participate.
