Summer Reading Program

As much as I love to read, I absolutely despised reading for school. The worst was "summer reading" for school. I think we mainly did this in high school, but it seemed that we always, always, always had to read the worst books. (Even my English-major-brother says that some of these weren't very good!) I always put it off until the last possible minute ... or didn't even really finish at all.

So the words "summer reading" don't have a great connotation for me.

But I ran across a couple of really need Summer Reading Programs that I thought I'd share with you ... and these are the kind I LOVED growing up.

Tyndale House Publishers - Read five books on the reading list, post your reviews, and choose a free book. Read five more, post reviews, and get another free book. Easy enough, right? I've read several of the books on the list and there are some good ones!

Barnes & Noble - This is a great one for kids. Read any eight books and you get a freebie. We all love freebies, don't we?!

Master Books - There are options for kids (ages 5 and up) and adults. Read the books on the list and choose between two prize packs.

Pizza Hut Bookit Program - Does anyone else remember this one? I had a collection of these buttons filled up with little gold stars that I could turn in for a personal pan pizza. It seems the program has changed a bit, but this could be fun for kids who just completed grades K-6.

Plus your local library is sure to have some fun reading program going for kids and adults alike.

Let's give "summer reading" a new definition ... one that is more fun than the high school summer reading I was required to do!
