Summer Reading Incentives

Summer's just around the corner. Have you thought about how you're going to keep your kids reading through the no-school months? Here's a quick suggestion:

Both Barnes and Noble and Borders Books and Music are running Summer Reading Programs for kids 12 and under. Kids read a set number of books --8 for Barnes and Noble, 10 for Borders -- and fill out their titles on a downloadable form. They take the form into a store and Presto! They get to choose a free book from the store's list.

To access Barnes and Noble's form and list of free books, go here.

To access Border's form and list, go here.

Forms may also be available at your local stores. Note that these programs are for kids who are reading independently (more or less). In other words, don't sign up your preschooler. These are great programs to encourage kids to read, and great ways to build your home library.
