Summer Reading  ends August 29!  That’s the last day that you will be able to exchange your reading logs for prizes.  That means you’ve got two weeks left!

To complete your log, read three books and record the author and title.  Have you got required reading for school?  Those books will count!  Or, you can pick something (anything!) just for fun.

Then there’s the wild card slot.  For the 4th spot on your log, you can read anything – a poem, a magazine, a short story, even this blog entry!  You could even watch a movie or listen to an album.

Turn in your log for a chance to win great prizes like free Brunswick Zone bowling for you & your friends and an iPod.
