Jen | 1586 comments Some of you have already seen this on my blog but we are hosting a summer reading challenge with prizes.

This is NOT a PBT challenge but admins here occasionally let me share some challenges I do on my personal blog.

It starts July 1 through September 30. Essentially you read you way from east coast to west coast. Of course we throw in some hitches into your travel plans too.

You can read more about it and sign up here: https://thereadersroom.org/challenges...

Blueberry (blueberry1) Jen,

I wasn't sure where to post this question on the blog. When the rules say the book must be set in the state or the author has to be from the state.....does that mean he currently lives in the state or he was born in the state?

Either one. As long as he/she has strong ties to the state (born there, grew up there, or living there then well accept it

Regina Lindsey | 946 comments We did a game similar to this on PBT one time and it was tons of fun. If I were not about to leave on vacation I'd play.

annapi | 1947 comments I'd love to do this, but as I am currently on vacation in the Philippines where I will be for a month, I think my reading will be drastically reduced this July. We are having a family reunion and my mom has lots of stuff planned!

New babies definitely take priority over reading challenges :)!

Karin | 3021 comments This is cool, but I'm already in the middle of a big challenge that goes until the end of August.

If you can come up with a proposal and a way to link in PBT in some manner, we could give participation points for this. For example, we could give 1 point per state plus a 5 pt bonus for every book that also fits the current tag at the time the book is completed. The book would need to be posted here in the current tag thread along with a notation that it is in the challenge.

Totally up to you . . .as we won't probably have any new challenge or activity ourselves over the summer - - it's actually our quietest time.
