Do you love reading challenges?
Do you live for competition?
Do you have a hard time deciding what you want to read next?
Are you in a reading rut and want to discover new books and authors?
Or do you simply enjoy discussing books with fellow readers?

If you can say yes to any one of those questions then THIS CONTEST IS MOST DEFINITELY FOR YOU.

The Mineola Library is challenging all to participate in a FUNdraising reading event. For a small fee of $5 participants can read to earn points and a chance to win a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card. Three runners-up will receive library tote bags. The challenge consists of completing a series of reading related events and sharing the experience with other readers by posting your comments in a secure discussion board through the goodreads website. The money raised will be used to provide materials and services for library patrons. Call the library for information, or help with your reading challenges. (903) 569-2767.

Follow these guidelines and have fun!

You may only claim points for books that you actually read, re-read, or listened to during the months September, October, or November 2011

After completing a reading task, post a comment about the book that was read. Be sure to note the book’s total page number.

BONUS POINTS will be awarded for TOTAL pages read after each task.
3000+ pages = 50 points
2999 - 2000 pages = 35 points
1999 - 1500 pages = 30 points
1499 - 1000 pages = 25 points
999 - 500 pages = 20 points
499 - 250 pages = 15 points
249 - 100 pages = 10 points
99 - 50 pages = 5 points

* All comments need to be posted by MIDNIGHT, on November 30 in order to receive credit.
* Each task counts for points only ONCE and each book can only be used for one task. Tasks can be completed in any order.
*If a task requires reading more than one book and is unfinished at the end of the contest, bonus points will not be awarded. The reader will only receive points for half the value of the task. For example: an incomplete 30pt. task will only earn 15pts.
*Re-reads, audio books, and e-books all count (unless otherwise stated in the task).
In the event of a tie, winners will be drawn randomly.
