The Young Adult Library Association is holding a Reading Challenge!
Read/listen to 25 of the titles on their list of eligible titles to finish the challenge. The list includes YA novels, audiobooks, graphic novels, and books for adults.
Everyone who finishes the challenge will be entered into a random drawing for the grand prize: a YALSA tote bag full of 2013 and 2014 YA lit! (If the winner is a teacher or librarian or something similar, they will also include a few professional titles.)
