Every summer, Barnes & Noble has a great reading program for kids — and this year’s was just announced. In honor of the 2016 Olympics (I think), this summer’s event will be a reading triathlon.
Only, while a real triathlon involves swimming, cycling and running, this triathlon basically just involves reading books. And then taking two minutes to fill out a form. Everyone who participates can get a free book from B&N!
You can click here for details, but here’s the gist:
All you really have to do is print this form, fill it out and bring it to a B&N near you.
But, while you’re at it, B&N is also having two additional events. They’re allowing you, the readers, to vote on your favorite hero and place from several different books.
And it just so happens that Teddy Fitzroy, the central character of my FunJungle series, is nominated for Best Hero!
The competition is very stiff, though. Teddy is up against some formidable competition. Like Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web, Despereaux from The Tale of Despereaux, Augie Pullman from Wonder, and two guys you might have heard of named Percy Jackson and Harry Potter.
I am very very flattered to be included with all these excellent writers (and there’s a couple others in there with me) — but I would also very much like to beat them.
So, while you’re downloading forms, please please please print this one too then fill it out and bring it to your local Barnes & Noble along with your reading log.
Also, note that you can vote more than once! So why not vote for me multiple times? You know I’d do it for you.
