If you are in the age range of 11-18 (or in middle school or high school), you are eligible to participate in Teen Read Week 2017 (October 8-14th).  What do you have to do?  Read and blog. Does it sound too easy?  That’s because it is. 

Read a novel or graphic novel of your choice and tell us about it (you may only do entries for books you read or finish reading this week). Write a few sentences; write a page, it’s up to you. Post your entries as responses to this post!

In your submission, you must provide the following:

·         The name of what you read

·         The author’s name

·         A brief summary

·         Would you recommend it? Why or why not?

·         Your contact information (Name, e-mail address/telephone number)

If you are not comfortable providing your contact information online, please send your blog entries via e-mail to: harris@monterey.org.  I will post your submissions anonymously.

For every entry submitted by you, a ticket with your name on it will be dropped into a raffle bin. On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, I will draw for winners and contact you to get your prizes.  The more entries you put in, the better your chances are at winning a prize.   

Prizes:

·         $10 Amazon gift cards!

·         A free book of your choice!   

Also, we will be having a special Teen Read Week Event on Wednesday, October 11 at 2:00, Jeopardy--with Your Classmates! Milk, cookies, prizes and fun are promised!
