For 2020, the Summer Reading Challenge is online!

The Third Place Books Summer Reading Challenge returns for its fifth year!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year the Reading Challenge will be conducted online using the form above. Beginning July 6th and ending August 31st, participants can enter the titles of books that they read to earn limited-edition prizes and chances to win Third Place Books gift cards!

How does it work?

When participants submit three titles through the form, they will earn an exclusive Reading Challenge trading card. The full trading card collection will feature artwork from beloved children's illustrators, including Liz Wong, Matthew Cordell, Jessixa Bagley, and more!

Additionally, every time a participant submits a completed form, their name will be entered to win a $50 gift card! We will randomly select three lucky gift card winners after August 31st. Please make sure to fill out the form in its entirety to guarantee that we have the information we need to send prizes and notify gift card winners!

There's no limit to the number of forms participants can complete (and no limit to the number of trading cards you can earn!), but participants must log their reading between July 6th and August 31st to be eligible for prizes and the gift card drawings.

Books should be at or above participants' current reading level to keep up reading skills over the summer months.
