How is everyone doing with the competition? Are you just getting started? Or perhaps you have already finished? Have you found any new favorites or appreciated more about a past favorite as you reread it for the competition?
Though warm weather is just starting where I am, I hope at least some of you are enjoying Spring weather and can take your reading outdoors! We want to hear all about your reading experience! And, don’t forget to start thinking about your best spine poetry for our latest photo competition. Hopefully it will make you see the Hub Reading Challenge books in a whole new way!
The 2014 Hub Reading Challenge will run until 11:59PM EST on June 22nd, so you have until then to finish all 25 books. Just be sure to keep track of what you are reading/listening to as you go along. We’ll be posting these check-in posts every Sunday so you can share your thoughts about the book(s) you read/listened to that week and share links to any reviews you post online. If you just can’t wait for our weekly posts, you can also share your thoughts via social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag, or join the 2014 Hub Challenge group on Goodreads. Check out 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, 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/listening to 25 titles.
