TLR's Summer Book Splash

Welcome to TLR's first summer reading challenge. We want to thank Doodle Bug Designs for creating the button above for us. The challenge is open to all our readers: parents, teens, those who just love teen books, bloggers, or non-bloggers. It's simple to participate. Make a list of pre-teen, teen or young adult books you would like to read and share them with us. The challenge starts today, June 22, and will run through September 22, the first day of fall.

And it wouldn't be a challenge without a prize or two at the end. Every one who participates will be entered in a drawing to win a free book. Present and past reviewers may participate in the challenge but will not be entered into the drawing. The drawing will be September 22.

Here's how to participate:

1. Bloggers:
a. Grab the code for the "TLR's Summer Book Splash" button from the code box below and add it to your sidebar and the post where you will leave your list of books-to-be read.

b. Sign the Mr. Linky and add the link from your challenge post so that we can find it.

c. Leave a comment with your email address if it's not listed on your blog.

d. We would love to hear how your summer reading went. If you do a wrap-up post please sign the Mr. Linky again with the link to that post.

2. Non-bloggers: Leave a comment with your list of books-to-be read and be sure to include an email address where we can contact you for the drawing.

3. You must be a US resident to participate in the book drawing.

4. You will get one extra entry into the drawing for signing up for each of the following:

* Subscribe to our Feedblitz newsletter located on our sidebar.

* Become a Fan of Teen Lit Review on our Facebook page by clicking on the link below.

Leave a comment on this post to receive your extra entries.

Okay, here goes. This is a fairly ambitious list, but we'll see how it goes:

Scat - Carl Hiaasen
The Book of Mordred - Vivian Vande Velde
North of Beautiful - Justina Chen Headley
Hush: An Irish Princess Tale - Donna Jo Napoli
Climbing the Stairs - Padma Venkatraman
Marcelo in the Real World - Francisco X. Stork

I have been known to quit reading a book that I find distasteful or uninteresting. Life is too short to read books you wish you hadn't.

I can't get the code to work. Keep getting a "x" and "photobucket". Any suggestions?
