How is the challenge going? I am not participating (again) this year because I am on an awards committee and currently reading for that. I did just finish listening to Gabi, a Girl in Pieces to refresh my memory since I read it last year for Quick Picks (it was in the top ten!) since my library teens are reading it for their book club. How I love that book! The audio is great and you should give it a listen if you have a chance.
How many of you have finished? How many books are now your favorite? Any books surprise you? I love this challenge because it forces us to read outside of our comfort zones. I hope to get back into the challenge again!
Check in with how you’re doing, and find out what other Challenge readers are enjoying by commenting on the weekly check-in posts or participating on social media. You can use the hashtag #hubchallenge to post updates on Twitter or check out the 2015 Goodreads Hub Reading Challenge group.
As you all know, you have until 11:59 PM EST on June 21st to finish at least 25 challenge books (here’s the full list of eligible titles). If you haven’t already, don’t forget to post the Participant’s Badge on your blog, website, or email signature, and, as always, if you have any questions or problems, let us know in the comments or via email.
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.
