The YALSA Hub Reading Challenge, Shiny and New

The Hub Reading Challenge logoHave you heard about “The Hub Reading Challenge,” sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA)? As reported in SLJ’s Good Comics for Kids blog, YALSA is hosting an expanded, new and improved The Hub Reading Challenge for 2013. This is how it works: you have until June 22 to read as many titles as you can from YALSA’s official challenge list. Once you hit the 25 book mark, you’re eligible  to submit a reader’s response for any of the titles you’ve read. Sure, there’s a prize, and you can earn a badge too!

Visit YALSA’s original post for complete details and guidelines and to see what other reading challenge participants are talking about. There’s always something going on over at The Hub!
