Adult Reading Challenge Wrap Up

The 2016 Adult Reading Challenge wrapped up with a get together on January 3rd, 2017.  We made new friends, talked about our favorite books, shared reading lists, laughed and generally had a great time.  We also wrapped up the challenge with the drawing of the grand prize – an iPad mini.  Winner was Deena Schendel.

Just some fun facts about the 2016 challenge: we had 47 participants; 14 participants completed the challenge of reading 50 books (25 from states and 25 from different countries); as a group they read and recorded a total of 1400 books!

We are looking forward to kicking off the 2017 Adult Reading Challenge on February 1st.   Stop by and pick up your bingo card – yes, we are playing bingo this year!  The goal – to get blackouts on 2 bingo cards.  You will complete one bingo card vertically and one bingo card horizontally.   Get a bingo (read 5 challenge books) and receive a $5 gift card to an area business and have your name entered to win the grand prize at the end of the year.  Complete the challenge (50 books) and you will be entered to win 10 times.

Be sure to ask for your Bingo booklet after February 1st. The challenge can be started anytime of the year. Tell your friends! Participate, read, and have fun!
