Presidential Reading Challenge
July 4, 2008 - July 4, 2009 (signed up 10/21/08
(Length of Challenge depends on the level you choose)
Becky from Becky's Book Reviews is hosting another one! The Presidential Reading Challenge is set up to allow participants to pick a level of reading which suits their needs.
For levels I through 3, readers are asked to read books which are either "fiction or nonfiction, for adults or for children.They need to be about a president or first lady or in someway connected to the President (children, pets, other relatives, friends, etc.) The book can be written from other points of view--from a servant, slave, friend, aide, employee, etc.--but the President and/or someone from his family would need to enter into it at some point."
Level one: Commit to reading ONE book between July 4, 2008 and November 4, 2008.
Level two: Commit to reading THREE books between July 4, 2008 and January 20, 2009. (Inauguration day according to Wikipedia).
Level three: Commit to reading FIVE books between July 4, 2008 and July 4, 2009.
Level four: This one is slightly different. You must commit to read primary documents--speeches and such. (Becky provides links for these on her site) So this level asks you to commit to reading 10 items. This one would go July 4, 2008 through July 4, 2009.
No lists or blogs are required.
