About the Shelf Challenge.

Welcome to the 2012 Shelf Challenge, an opportunity to explore what's really on your bookshelves and hopefully come out with a couple of treasures along the way.

Joining up is easy! Just follow these steps:

  • Select a section of your library collection to read throughout the month of April.
    • Make it manageable and appealing. (No sense turning what could be a fun experience into more work.)
  • Try to read every book in that section over the course of the month.
    • For everybody books, read them cover to cover.
    • For fiction and nonfiction, read the dust jackets or back cover descriptions.
  • Share selected gems (and cringes) through a favorite social media outlet such as Shelfari, GoodReads, or through your blog or Twitter feed.
  • Complete this GoogleDoc so that I can keep track of participants and cheer you on throughout School Library Month!
Happy Reading!
