Do you love reading?
Is part of your job getting books into the hands of youngsters?
Well, get ready to decrease those TBR Piles!
Brian (@BrianWyzlic), Jillian Hiese (@HeiseReads) and Sherry Gick (@LibraryFanatic) are excited to welcome you back to The Third Annual #SummerThrowdown!
Summer Throwdown is all about reading as much as you can so that you can bring new titles to your students in the fall. It started out as a contest between School Librarians and Teachers and just evolved!
The rules are simple:
- Every book you read or listen to counts as 1 book. Every.Book.Counts!
- Set your goal and enter it on the #SummerThrowdown Spreadsheet
- Each time you read a book, enter it on the spreadsheet.
- At the end of the month, let's see how you did!
An Optional Challenge
In order to satisfy those with a friendly competitive spirit (ME!) - we are encouraging you to do Callout Challenges! Choose a friend and challenge them to read a certain number of books.
Then, over the course of July, let them know how many books you are reading and give them a little ribbing! This is totally optional! I've been called out by non other than Sherry (@LibraryFanatic)!
I accept Sherry's challenge to read 30 books and offer her one of my own - NO PICTURE BOOKS! What say you Sherry??
Again, this challenge is optional!
The only thing you need to participate in #SummerThrowdown is a willingness to read and record your reading!
We do ask if you are on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ or other social media - you use it as you are reading and add the #SummerThrowdown hashtag!
So, what are you waiting for??
Head on over to the #SummerThrowdown Spreadsheet to sign up!
