Adults, students urged to share what they read during October
From Progress Staff Reports
PAULDING – The end of October is also the end of the Read One Program for 2013. Now is the time for everyone who read at least one book during the month to turn in the title(s) and the name of the author(s) to the Paulding County Progress.
Please report title of the book(s) and the author(s), the reader’s contact information and whether the reader is a student or adult, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, drop your title or list by the Progress offices or at the Paulding County Carnegie Library or any of its branches.
The staff encourages participants to turn in the books they read during the month, even if they have not quite discovered if Pi will be eaten by the tiger (Life of Pi), what the body of water is behind the old house (Ocean at the End of the Lane), or if “Doctor Sleep” is still keeping them awake at night.
The goal of the Read One Program is to stress the value of literacy, not to make a reader rush through a book in a 31-day period.
The Progress staff will compile a list with all the different submitted titles and then publish it in November. The name of the reader will not be published.
Participants will automatically be entered into a drawing to win one of two free one-year print or online subscriptions to the Progress. One prize will be awarded to an adult participant, and one for a student participant will be awarded to the student’s school classroom.
