A Little Time and a Keyboard: Summer Reading Programs: Barnes & Noble and Half Price Books

Summer Reading Programs: Barnes & Noble and Half Price Books

Thursday, May 24, 2012

The quest to find summer activities is in full swing!  Barnes & Noble and Half Price Books both have summer reading programs. (Yes, little Mel and little Kat will be busy, but with the amount they read, it will only be for a millisecond!)

For Barnes & Noble, kids need to read  8 books and keep a log that you can print from Barnes & Noble's website. Once they have read 8 books, they can bring their completed logs in to a store to receive a free book. There will be a list of books they can choose from. The program goes from May 22, 2012 - Sept 4, 2012. However, I recommend completing it sooner rather than later for the best selection of new books!

The Half Price Books Summer Reading Program gives kids $5 of Half Price Books Bucks for reading for 300 minutes for both June and July. The bucks can be used between 7/25/12 and 8/31/12. June logs will need to be turned in by 7/08/12 and July logs by 8/05/12. The fine print states that only one coupon may be used for visit. Check Half Price Books' website for more details and logs. There also will be a big storytime at Half Price Books on June 3 at 2PM to kick off summer!
