Welcome to the fourth week of the 2014 Hub Reading Challenge! We have some good news for you: YALSA’s Great Graphic Novels top ten list has been altered to list each volume of Strobe Edge and Gene Yang’s Boxers & Saints as separate entities, so we’re following suit. If you’ve read any or all of these volumes, they can now be counted separately, making it that much easier for you to reach your goal of 25 titles. These changes are now reflected in the finisher form, and the PDF of eligible titles will also be updated shortly.
How is the challenge going for you all? What book has surprised you? What has been your favorite? Has anyone finished? Tell me in the comments.
I’m not participating in the challenge this year. I know, I know, but I have a good reason! I’m on a selection committee and all the reading I am doing is in support of that; but I am following along on social media by checking the Goodreads 2014 Hub Challenge Group and the #hubchallenge hashtag. We’ve collected some tweets from your fellow participants– join the conversation if you haven’t already!
Keep reading, and remember, you have plenty of time to get through this challenge; it ends at 11:59PM EST on June 22nd. Please keep reading and tracking your progress and check back here each Sunday to let us know how you are doing and to see how other folks are doing.
If you are have already completed the challenge by reading or listening to 25 titles from the list of eligible books, be sure to fill out the form below so we can send you your Challenge Finisher badge, get in touch to coordinate your reader’s response and, perhaps best of all, to notify you if you win our exciting grand prize drawing! Be sure to use an email you check frequently and do not fill out this form until you have completed the challenge by reading 25 titles.
