Summer Reading Program - 2009

Recommended Posts

The point of Summer Reading Program is to get people reading --

whatever they want to read! There's even a prize for this year... this

is reposted from the SRP Good Reads forum:

What to do:

All you have to do is set yourself a reading goal -- how many books

you want to finish reading by the end of the program -- and write

little summaries/reviews of what you read.

You pick whatever books you want and then post your write ups after

each book. If you want you can even wait to post the write ups until

the end of the Summer Reading Program, but I don't recommend it

because you have to have everything "turned in" by the last day.

Anyone can join up at any time!

Leave a comment here with the url for whatever site/blog you plan on

posting your write ups so we can all read them & see what you're

reading.

You never know -- someone else might be doing the same book as you, or

you might even discover a great new book to check out!

___________________

Dates:

SRP 2009 will officially begin Saturday, May 23rd, and will end on

Saturday, August 15th. In order to be fair, only books read during

these twelve weeks can count for the SRP. Any book begun before May

23rd does not qualify.

Graphics:

There are graphics you can use to advertise the Summer Reading Program

online or in print. Feel free to take any/all.

Certificates and Prize:

At the end of the Summer Reading Program everyone will receive a

certificate of participation, like we have the last three years. But

this year there will be an actual prize: A $25 Barnes and Noble gift

card!

To qualify for the prize you must meet your personal goal by the

deadline. A winner from those participants will be selected at random.

Since I am the moderator of the Summer Reading Program, I am not

eligible for the drawing.

The winner will be notified and arrangements to deliver the prize will

be made privately.

Great!

My goal is to read a pile of the lent books in a stack by my computer. So far (even though we're not starting yet), I've done three. And one was 3 inches thick. So I figure I'll do fairly well this summer!
