Hub Reading Challenge logoIt’s now February 3rd, so we are kicking off YALSA’s 2014 Hub Reading Challenge! We hope this challenge will encourage you to read/listen to more great books than you might have otherwise – and to discover something new in a genre or category you might not have tried.

Challenge objective Read/listen to 25 of the titles on our list of eligible titles [pdf] to finish the challenge. The list includes YA novels, audiobooks, graphic novels, and books for adults, so there’s plenty to choose from. Bonus objective: read/listen to all eligible titles to conquer the challenge!

Challenge rewards Beyond experiencing the best of the best that YA lit has to offer, everyone who finishes the challenge will be invited to submit a response to a book they read for the challenge. The response can be text, graphics, audio, video and will be published on The Hub. Furthermore, everyone who finishes the challenge will be entered into a random drawing for our grand prize: a YALSA tote bag full of 2013 and 2014 YA lit! (If the winner is a teacher or librarian or something similar, we’ll also include a few professional development titles.)

Challenge conquerors will receive an elite digital badge to show off how well-read they are. (And don’t forget major bragging rights and the undying awe and respect of everyone, everywhere.)

Challenge guidelines

  • The challenge begins at 12:01AM EST on February 3 and ends at 11:59PM EST on June 22.
  • Eligible books are the YA titles that were named winners or honor titles for the Schneider Family Book Award and the Stonewall Book Award and those on YALSA’s 2014 Best of the Best list (2014 winners and honor books for the Alex Award, Award for Excellence in Nonfiction, Margaret A. Edwards Award, Michael L. Printz Award, Odyssey Award, and William C. Morris Award, as well as the 2014 Top Ten Amazing Audiobooks, Best Fiction, Great Graphic Novels, Popular Paperbacks, and Quick Picks.) Middle grade titles recognized by these lists and awards are not included in the list of eligible titles for this challenge.
  • Format matters: a title that has been recognized for both the print version and the audiobook version can be both read and listened to and count as two books, but a book that has won multiple awards or appears on multiple lists in the same format only counts as one title. If a book was recognized as a print version, listening to the audiobook does not count.
  • Books must be read/listened to (both begun and finished) within the challenge time period. If you’ve already read/listened to a title, you must re-read/listen to it for it to count. The only exception is for titles you read for the Morris/Nonfiction Reading Challenge; whether or not you finished that challenge, you may count that reading toward your 25 titles.
  • Just about everyone who doesn’t work for ALA is eligible to participate. Non-ALA/YALSA members are eligible. Teens are eligible. Non-US residents/citizens are eligible. (More eligibility questions? Leave a comment or email us.)
  • Once you finish the challenge, we’ll contact you with details about creating and publishing your response.
  • The grand prize winner will be selected by 11:59pm EST on June 25. The winner will be notified via email.

How to participate

  • Comment here announcing your intention to participate. If you’re going to be tracking what you read/listen to on your blog or on Goodreads, LibraryThing, YouTube or some other site, include a link to your blog/shelf/channel/profile in your comment. If you’re not tracking your reading online, keep a list some other way.
  • You may register for the challenge by leaving a comment here and starting your reading any time during the challenge period.
  • Make it a social experience! Share your challenge progress and get to know other participants by using the hashtag #hubchallenge on Twitter. If you’re on Goodreads, join the 2014 Hub Challenge group.
  • Every Sunday, we’ll publish a check-in post. Leave a comment with everything you’ve read/listened to since the last check-in post. If you’ve reviewed those titles somewhere online, include links to those reviews! Otherwise, let us know what you thought of the books in the comments.
  • If you’ve finished the challenge since the last check-in post, fill out the embedded form with your name and contact information. This is how you’ll receive your Finisher’s Badge, how you’ll be contacted about your reader’s response, and how you’ll be entered into the drawing for our grand prize. Please fill out the form only once.
  • If you’ve conquered the challenge, let us know in the comments and we’ll send you your Conqueror’s Badge.

Sound good? If you have any questions or problems, let us know in the comments or via email. Otherwise, grab this Participant’s Badge, put it on your blog or in your email signature, and start reading!

  9. February 3, 2014

    I’m in – started my first audio on the way in to work. Always tend to do at least half the list, so that’ll be my first goal.

    • February 3, 2014

      Question – will the list be revised when the Quick Picks are posted?

    I’m in! I finished the Morris/Non-fiction challenge by the skin of my teeth so I am already well on my way to finishing at least 25. I hope to finish all of the titles, but I had a hard time locating some of them last year and my purchasing budget can only stretch so far. We shall see what happens. My fingers are crossed, I hope my eyes do not end up the same way! This year I am trying to read them in some order. Last year I just did a hit or miss scheme and I had a very hard time keeping things straight mentally.

  15. February 3, 2014

    I’m totally in! This is my third year and it’s so fun to discover books that I wouldn’t normally choose. I’m be keeping track at goodreads (mugsypark).

  20. February 3, 2014

    I am going to aim for 25 titles again this year. I’ve already read 13 titles from the list, so as last year, this will force me to stretch a little :)
    I’ve got a hub challenge 2014 shelf started on Goodreads http://bit.ly/1aWp9Vk and may possibly tweet @MHHSLibrary as well.

    I’m in!

  28. February 3, 2014

    Count me in! First up…..Eleanor & Park!

  29. February 3, 2014

    I noticed the Quick Picks (http://www.ala.org/yalsa/2014-top-ten-quick-picks-reluctant-young-adult-readers) are not included. Are those part of the challenge as well?

  30. February 3, 2014

    Can’t wait! I so enjoy this challenge!

  31. February 3, 2014

    I’m in! I’m so glad to do this again, its such a great exercise!

  32. February 3, 2014

    I’m in! I’ll track my progress on my blog Writing Bout Reading and on my Goodreads account Angela’s Books. I have a shelf called “Hub 2014 Challenge.” There’s also a separate shelf for the 2014 Nonfiction and Morris Challenge.

    Withing the larger Challenge, I always try to read at least one from each category. I also avoid re-reading so that I am forced to read things I would not otherwise have read. Even thought having done the Winter Challenge gives me a head start on this one, I’m going to try to read 25 additional titles. I’ve already finished my first: The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks.

    The Quick Picks list is now up and, doesn’t it figure, the one YA book I read last weekend is on that list. If I’d known, I would have waited until today to start Killer of Enemies. Oh well, there are plenty of other tempting titles.

    I’m in. I’ve done the Nonfiction Award challenge for the last two years, but this is my first try at the “big challenge.” Since mainstream YA is not my native habitat, it should be a useful exercise. First in the to-be-read queue is Midwinterblood.

Thankfully I’ve already got 2 under my belt from participating in the Morris/Nonfiction challenge even though I wasn’t able to finish because I started very late. I’ll be posting my reviews and stuff from my Goodreads on my blog and tagging it so you can find them here: http://turnpagesturn.tumblr.com/tagged/2014+Hub+Reading+Challenge

  87. February 3, 2014

    Couldn’t quite finish last year, better luck this year, right?
    So glad a pdf of titles is included this time :)
    I’ll be writing about what I read on Goodreads and also my blog, sarahsbookjournal.wordpress.com

  88. February 3, 2014

    So excited! I’m simultaneously proud and slightly frustrated to realize I’ve already read a decent number of the titles but this will force me to read some that I might otherwise have missed or put off. I’ll be tracking over at Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/3716269-kelly?shelf=hub_challenge_2014) and occasionally at my blog (freshfromthestacks.wordpress.com) and/or Tumblr (http://onesmartcupcake.tumblr.com/).

    I’m completely on board. But as far as eligibility goes, does being on a YALSA task force mean I can’t participate? Just wondering.

    The 2 Stonewall winners aren’t showing up on the PDF list. (Well, Beautiful Music for Ugly Children is, but it isn’t identified as Stonewall, only Popular Paperbacks.) The honor books are on the list. Fat Angie should be added.

  115. February 4, 2014

    Last year I failed miserably (only read 5). I plan to do much better this year. I’ve already read Belle Epoque for the Morris challenge and started reading Sex & Violence yesterday, so I’m off to a good start.

I’ve joined the Goodreads Hub Challenge group, so I’ll participate there at least, as well as checking in here.

    This is my second year doing the challenge. Last year, I made it through about 75% of the titles. This year, I’m going to push myself to read EVERY title. I’ll start by rereading either Beauty Queens, The Book Thief, or I am the Messenger because I have those in my collection. I’ll be posting weekly on my blog .

    I’ve also joined the Goodreads group, but I don’t know how active I’ll be, especially since I’ll be reading like crazy. :)

    I really enjoyed this last year, so I’m in for another year. Last year I read 25, but didn’t submit my completion information on time…so middle school! This year I’ve already started with the Morris and Nonfiction lists, and am anticipating both reading books that I know I’ll like and others that I probably wouldn’t have picked without the challenge. I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/13804296-sharon-amastae?shelf=2014-hub-challenge.

    I want to double-check on this: the Stonewall and Schneider titles are eligible for this challenge, but the Coretta Scott King, Pura Belpre, and Batchelder titles are not. Correct?

    Any reason why?

    • Emily P permalink
      February 6, 2014

      I second this comment: Pura Belpre author award winner, Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass, is YA so I would argue it should be part of the challenge. The other awards went to middle grade/youth titles this year so I understand why those would not be eligible.

    I’m in!

    “Freakboy” by Kirstin Cronn-Mills. A novel in verse, from the perspectives of Brendan, his girlfriend Vanessa, and transwoman Angel. Brendan, who’s on his school’s wrestling team (his school requires a set amount of athletic participation) sometimes wishes he were girl. His girlfriend and wrestling teammate Vanessa knows that something’s amiss in their relationship, and she has family members pressuring her to be more conventionally feminine. Angel recognizes Brendan as transgendered and faces an ethical dilemma after she discovers that Brendan. confused by his feelings, vandalizing the GLBT center where she’s a counselor–and that he’s the one anonymously paying for the needed repairs bit by bit. I didn’t care for novel in verse aspect, but found it an interesting story well told.

    Shouldn’t Boxer and Saints be considered as two books? I know they are companion books, but it is a two-volume set that could be read separetely.

I have read so far Sex and Violence, Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets, Belle Epoque, Midwinterblood, and In the Shadow of Blackbirds! 5 total.

    I have a question: I read a few of the Morris titles during the Morris/Non-Fiction reading challenge, but did not list them in any of the update posts. Can I still count those because they were read during the time frame?

    This March and April, I’ve read both Boxers and Saints by Gene Luen Yang, Far Far Away by Tom McNeal, and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. 21 more books to go!….

  304. Marney Welmers permalink
    May 1, 2014

    Ok, I’m retired, so I’ve finished 25 books — also reading frantically for Arizona Awards nominations committee meetings so that motivation helps.

    What do I do now?

    Absolute favorites?
    Beauty Queens, and Eleanor & Park, of course
    Go: A Kidd’s Guide to Graphic Design — such a good tie-in to the CCS visual emphasis
    Winger

    So much of the non-fiction is excellent — parts of history students never hear about and new angles on what they do know

    Far, Far Away and Navigating Early are wonderful, but I wonder about how appealing they are to teens — I’d love to know about others’ experiences with them

      Congrats, Marney! I’ll follow up with you (and all other finishers) via email. We’d love to hear more of your thoughts as a “Reader Response” piece on The Hub! Thanks for participating, and again, congrats on finishing!

    This is a great idea. It’s fun to have a goal to work toward and I’m coming across all kinds of diverse titles. I appreciate the mix of print and audio, too. Since starting this challenge, I’ve read 6, and am nearing the end of my 7th (Yaqui Delgado).

    I’m very late starting, but I read the nonfiction award finalists during our faculty version of the Nonfiction Challenge, so those 5 are done. I’ll have to see whether I’ve read any of the others in the designated window, but whatever gets read is good, right?

  309. Edith Sutterlin permalink
    June 9, 2014

    I found out about this, and had already been reading YA literature quite a bit since February while interviewing for and beginning a new job as Librarian in California, so I will count books read during this challenge period, going back to my goodreads and my interiew preparation notes to be sure I only count things read during this time period. With two weeks to go, I will have some intense reading to do, but now it counts for Summer Reading Challenge too, so that’s good!

    Even if I don’t manage to complete the target number, I’ll be a lot further along, so I’m game. .
