Can I participate without a computer, internet access, or an email account?  Yes, we can create an account for you, but won’t ever be able to access this account yourself. We will give you a paper log to log your books for the challenge. Download the log here.

What do participants need to do?  Simply log the minutes you spend reading.  There are no required activities except….READ! 

Is there something specific a participant needs to read?  Nope.  You can read whatever they like (fiction, nonfiction, audiobooks, kids’ books, magazines, newspapers….anything).  Simply remember to log minutes. 

Participants do have a chance to earn some extra credit by reading one of JLG’s award-winning book selections and completing the “JLG Picks” activity for your grade level. 

Will participants earn badges? Yes, they will earn badges for up to twelve hours of reading plus extra credit activity badges. 

Do participants need to stop reading at 12 hours?  NO!!!! Keep reading!  Every minute counts….and we want to win!  😊  

What if a mom reads a book to her kids or a sibling reads to another sibling, can they count those minutes for both individuals?  YES!!!  Remember, every minute counts.  Make sure you log those minutes for everyone. 

What do participants win for completing the challenge?  

  1. The satisfaction that they have helped their brain become stronger by keeping it active through reading
  2. They have helped give our library system an opportunity to win a new collection of books that can be used by the entire community.
