How it works (also known as the rules)

Marshall Libraries Reading Competition

1.  The staffs of the Murrell College Library, the Marshall Public School Libraries, and the Marshall Public Library will participate in the Missouri Book Challenge (starting in January 2011).

This is so much more than a race...Your participation makes you eligible for drawings throughout the year.

2.  Rules
            a.  Staff can compete in the following categories:
 1.  Total books read.  This includes juvenile books, teen books, and graphic novels as well as audiobooks.  NO picture books.
2.  Most pages read. 
3.  Most time spent reading.
4.  Most participation points.
Participation points are awarded for the following activities:  posting to the blog, reading a book that is on an award list or has won an award, or reading books off a suggested reading list (such as ALA Notable Fiction, Newbery Awards, etc.)  You get bonus points if you read the entire list.  We are willing to assign points to any reading list that someone submits.
b.     To get credit for reading a book, you must post and entry about your book. Include your name, the title, author, # of pages, and a short entry.  Also include a note if it is an award book or from a suggested reading list.  Participants are responsible for keeping track of their own reading. 
c.     There will a monthly drawing for all members who post to the blog.
