Kids Can Earn a Free Book at Barnes & Noble

Will the kids in your life read more than eight books this summer? They can get a free book through Barnes & Noble’s Summer Reading program.

Kids can download the free Summer Reading Journal (PDF link) and fill it up as they read eight books this summer. They can bring the filled-up journal to a Barnes & Noble and pick out a book from the store’s special Reading Journal list. Here’s more about the process:

Bring your completed journal to a Barnes & Noble store  between May 21st and September 3rd, 2013. 3. Choose your FREE reading adventure from the book list featured on the back of the journal.
