How is everyone doing on their reading for the Hub Reading Challenge? Have you read or listened to anything that you wouldn’t have otherwise tried? Did you finally get around to a book that has been on your To-Be-Read list for ages? Have you loved any book from the list? Let us know in the comments. One of the most fun parts of the Hub Reading Challenge is always hearing about everyone’s experience with the books and seeing how different readers react to the books on the list.
I confess I have only read a couple of books for the challenge so far, so don’t feel intimidated if you haven’t started yet! There is still time! You have until 11:59PM EST on June 22nd to finish all 25 books. Just be sure to keep track of your progress. We’ll be posting these check-in posts each week so you can talk about the book(s) you read/listen to that week and share links to your reviews online. If you just can’t wait for our weekly posts, feel free to share your thoughts on social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag, or join the 2014 Hub Challenge group on Goodreads. You can see some of the social media conversation below.
If you 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.
