This is it, the final check-in of the 2014 Hub Reading Challenge! Anything from the list of eligible titles that you read or listen to up until 11:59pm EDT tonight, June 22, counts. So fill out the form below and let us know that you’ve finished the challenge before 11:59pm EDT!
After the deadline passes we’ll do a drawing to determine our grand prize winner, who will receive a YALSA tote bag full of 2013 and 2014 YA lit! (If the winner is a teacher or librarian or something similar, we’ll also include a few professional development titles.) Everyone who completed the challenge will receive an elite digital badge of achievement, as well as an invitation to submit a reader response to a book they read for the challenge that will be published on The Hub. Check out some of the amazing Reader Responses from last year if you’re curious.
We’re also interested in knowing what you thought of the 2014 challenge! What worked for you? What didn’t? Did you participate on social media? Why or why not? Leave us a comment and let us know what you enjoyed most about participating, what you’d like us to change for the next reading challenge, or anything else you want to share. You can also email us if you’d like to respond privately.
One last time, then, don’t forget to check out social media using the #hubchallenge hashtag and jump into the discussion over at the Goodreads 2014 Hub Challenge group if you haven’t already.
If you’ve completed the challenge by reading or listening to 25 titles from the list of eligible books, be sure to fill out the form below by 11:59pm EDT tonight, Sunday, June 22. Please be sure to use an email you check frequently 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 the grand prize drawing! Thanks for participating in the 2014 Hub Reading Challenge! I can’t wait till next year!
