Make time for reading!

We’ve created a community-wide initiative to read fifteen books throughout the year.  Anyone can participate, although the books were chosen with adults or mature teens in mind.

Each book you've read (and reported) enters you into a monthly drawing for a prize. Any person who reads and enters fifteen or more books by the end of the year will be eligible to win the grand prize!
