Library Reading – It’s A Family Affair

This summer our local library system is encouraging not “just” the kids to read. This year there is a summer reading program for parents (or non-parent adults), too! For every three books I read, I can enter to win a Nook. Truth is, I don’t need an e-reader, but I am always up for a challenge.

First book on my to-read list? Depression Cookies co-written by my bloggin’ friend Tia and her mother, Angela. (Look for a Q&A with the authors here after I finish the book.)

Lucky for me, my hubby can read about a book a day (okay, that’s an exaggeration, but not by much). So our chances to get an e-reader in the house are fairly high.

What are you reading this summer?

  1. I think that is so cool that the library is offering incentives to read — although I’m not sure what that says about the state of reading!! Still, like you, I’m sure I’d join in! Looking forward to the Q&A about Depression Cookies!

    Julia, you’re right…having to encourage adults to read, too, does say something about how little people read these days. It will be interesting to see if they report on any results or trends they notice with this “promotion”!

    Liz, I love the idea of encouraging parents to read. And what a great book choice! I think I’ll steal your idea and have her as a guest, too.

    Reading Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst currently.

  4. I love this idea as well. I’m not sure if we have such a program at libraries in Phoenix, but I might look into that. It’s a great idea. Get more people reading so they’ll buy our books. 🙂
