It’s the 20th anniversary of Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading Program. This year, the Summer Reading Triathlon, gives young readers (grades 1-6) the opportunity to earn a free book by reading three books and completing a journal about the books they’ve read. It’s a great way to encourage kids to make reading a priority during the summer months!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3:

Step 1. Fill out the Summer Reading Triathlon Reading Journal (PDF). En Español (PDF).
Step 2. Bring the completed Reading Journal to your local B&N store. Find a Store.
Step 3. Choose a FREE BOOK from the selection on the Reading Journal list at the store… Enjoy reading!

During the Summer Reading Triathlon, kids have the chance to vote for their favorite heroes and places in a wide selection of great books, by filling out a ballot nominating their gold, silver, and bronze-medaled books in each group. Ballots will be located near the entrance of the Children’s Department of their local store.

Voting ends August 21. And, kids can vote as many times as they’d like, to help move their favorite choices up the leader board.

The Summer Reading Triathlon will conclude on August 27 at 11AM, at which time the local and national winners will be announced.  For more information, please visit Barnes and Noble.
