Still not signed up for YALSA’s 2014 Hub Reading Challenge? Read the official rules and sign up on the original post. Anything you’ve read since February 3 counts, so sign up now! You have just over a week left!
As The Hub Manager, I’m not officially participating in The Hub Reading Challenge– but I am reading along for fun, and I love the books I’ve encountered so far! I just finished reading the Printz Award winner, Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick, and can’t stop thinking about it. I had no idea what to expect, and it was absolutely captivating. Too, I had read Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park before the challenge, but I re-experienced it via the Odyssey Honor winning audio format, and fell in love with the story all over again.
So, with the challenge deadline of June 22 approaching, how’s your reading going? Have you read anything that particularly surprised you? A few of you have signed up in the last few weeks with the intent of powering through, which I think is awesome and admirable. Update us in comments here, or share your thoughts on social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag.
The 2014 Hub Reading Challenge runs until 11:59 PM EST on June 22nd. We’ll have one last check-in post next Sunday morning, so you can share your thoughts about the book(s) you read/listened to this week and share links to any reviews you post online. If you want to share your thoughts immediately, use the social media hashtag #hubchallenge, or join the 2014 Hub Challenge group on Goodreads.
