Come on, admit it! Every once in a while, when you see the kids doing the Summer Reading Program, you get nostalgic and just a little bit envious. Reading lists, personal challenges, watching your word count grow, and at the end, there's a prize on top of everything? What could be more fun?
Alright, nostalgic adult, do we have excellent news for you!
This year, Mid-Continent Public Library started a brand new event: The Winter Reading Challenge. The idea was to promote leisure reading among adults, and those who committed to reading five titles over a two-month period received a limited edition "Somewhere in Time" mug along with a chance to win the grand prize, a Kindle Fire.
