So let's all kick up our reading habits by trying to read 25 books this school year.

The Details:

Track the books you read from now through June

Post the titles you read at #RReads25 (FB, snapchat, wherever...)

Read in any language, in class, and/or at home

Join us for a party in the library in June and get a T-shirt to show you finished.
