These three girls from my 2018-19 class accepted the 40 BOOK CHALLENGE! They are the first and only students to finish the challenge since I started it five years ago.
Will YOU be next?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to read a total of 40BOOKS this school year!
I know what you’re thinking: “Why would I want to read 40BOOKS in one year?” Well, as Abraham Lincoln once said:
Okay, so that was actually Dr. Seuss who said that, which you would’ve known if you were a reader. According to a recent study, “reading frequently does actually make you smarter. Not only does it help you retain knowledge, but it helps you to remember that knowledge later on in life.” (Anne Cunningham)
And you know you want to be the next Albert Einstein! (Only better looking!)
Is it even possible to read 40 BOOKS in one school year? Yes, but you'll have to read about 45-60 minutes a day. And you'll have to read a 100-page book every week - including Christmas and Spring Breaks - but you can do anything you set your mind to.
Here's the catch! You MUST read the number of books indicated below for each genre. Click on the links to see some book options.
