Happy Spring (and happy May the Fourth for Star Wars fans)! While it has technically been Spring for some time, it is only just starting to feel consistently warm and pleasant where I am, so it is finally the perfect weather to grab a book and read outside. Finish up your Hub Reading Challenge books in the great outdoors or curled up by your favorite window. Even if you haven’t started yet, sign up now! There is still plenty of time to read 25 books before the end of the competition!
Regardless of where you are in the Challenge, let us know how it is going for you. What’s the latest book you’ve finished? What is the best book you have read so far? Have you added anything new and exciting to your Hub Reading Challenge to-be-read list? Personally, my favorite book that I finished since my last check-in post was Dr. Bird’s Advice for Sad Poets by Evan Roskos. I can’t wait to see what else I will discover on the Challenge list.
The 2014 Hub Reading Challenge will run until 11:59PM EST on June 22nd, so even if you haven’t started reading yet, you still have plenty of time to read 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 each 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, share your thoughts via social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag, or join the 2014 Hub Challenge group on Goodreads. We will be compiling posts from various places online into a Storify collection. You can see the social media conversation so far 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.
