Bonus Badges for Summer Reading Challenge
The 2023 Summer Reading Challenge is officially upon us! If you haven't already signed up or learned about all the cool prizes and events we have coming up, see Kirstin's blog post for details. All the reading you do counts towards your end goal, but we have a handful of bonus activity badges to go along with counting your minutes. These bonus badges are optional but will enter you into prize drawings at the end of summer. A few of these are related to reading specific types of books, so we've come up with some recommendations. As always with these challenges, we want people to read whatever it is that they enjoy! If you have something else that fits these badge requirements, it's fair game- these are simply suggestions. However, if you're not quite sure where to start with these themes or just generally enjoy seeing recommendations for books you might have missed, we have you covered.
Fairy Tale: Read a retelling of a classic, fairy tale, or myth, or a book of fairy tales or mythology.
Dragon: Read a fantasy book.
Castle: Read a non-fiction or fiction book about or set in the Medieval or Renaissance periods.
Quest: Read a fiction or non-fiction graphic novel or manga
