Why read in the summer?

Teen Summer Reading means prizes instead of book reports! Plus, teens who read in the summer gain reading skills and have higher test scores when school starts again. In the summer, you decide: read the things you care about, when you want to. All reading counts - books, magazines, newspapers, blogs and fanfiction. Reading to a child counts, too.

Keep track of your reading from June 7 to August 31. Good luck and have fun!

Discover your next great read with themed booklists, expertly selected by Teen Specialists:

Middle School Best of the Rest - But I hate to read Hi/Lo books
- Making the Big Bucks - Summer Time - Real Issues
