Holiday Break Reading Challenge

For those of you who have been following me for a while you know about the Holiday Break Reading Challenge I host each year. This year, my best bud Julie is going to help me and we are going to host it on Edifying and Edgy. E & E is now the permanent home of the Holiday Break Reading Challenge.

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, here is an explanation.  For 17 days (usually during the Christmas break for most schools) Julie and I will be posting an book related activity every day. You can choose to participate everyday or once or twice during the entire challenge.  It is totally up to you. The Holiday Break Reading Challenge is meant to be fun and low pressure.

There are prizes every day. There will be a Simply Linked at the bottom of every post so you can share your activity entry. We will use Random.org to choose a winner each day.

To get an idea of the kind of activities we will have visit the old location. 

Some of the activities take longer than others.  Some of the activities require you to be more creative than others.  But, remember, you don't have to participate in all of them.  Just pick and choose.

This year the Holiday Break Reading Challenge will start on December 16th, 2011 and end on January 1st, 2012.

Prizes and winners will be listed on this website.
