Coming Soon…the APOOO Second Quarter 2009 African American Reading Challenge. Get on your mark, get set, GO! Starting April 1st, we will begin the Second Quarter Challenge. So think about what 13 books you want to read from April 1st – June 30th and prepare to read and cross them off over the next 13 week period.
Come on out and join us! With a little help, encouragement and competition from fellow readers, you can read books from your list and work your t0-read-pile down.
Second Quarter challenge will work the same way as the First Quarter challenge (if it’s not broken…don’t fix it…lol). CLICK HERE for instructions/directions regarding the First Quarter challenge.
NOTE: First Quarter Reading Challenge will end on at midnight, Tuesday (3/31). The final update, Week 13, will be posted on Wednesday. Stop by Wednesday and let us know how you did. If you finished at least 13 books and you participated in the Challenge you will receive a personalized bookmark. If you read all 13 books on YOUR LIST you will be entered to win a $25 gift certificate. Look forward to seeing how well you did on Wednesday.
As for me, I’m off to start book 13…I’m going to do this!
UPDATE: I finished ALL the books on my list…and yes it was a CHALLENGE…but it’s very rewarding to know that I did it, I did it…hehe.
