Tonight ends the first round of the #summerthrowdown reading challenge. Three of my Tweeps (people I follow on Twitter) enjoy challenging each other (and their classrooms) to outread each other on a regular basis. Then the idea of a summer reading challenge came together, plotting librarians against teachers. It's been great fun: reading like crazy, logging our reads on a spreadsheet (we count average number of books read) and giving stats/cheering/pouting on Twitter.
I've got a pile of picture books to read tonight, in addition to a few early chapter books that I found at the library. My plan is to read until my eyes bug out of my head (those pesky #LeagueOfLibrarians have been ahead for most of the throwdown). We're counting picture books as 0.25, books 50-150 pages as 0.50 and novels over 150 pages as 1.0.
