No matter what books your little one reads they will count towards the 8 books. So even if your kids are stuck on The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga, Amelia Bedelia, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, or even The Lorax they can count their book towards their goal of 8. As long as they read the books between May 22nd and and September 4th they can count their books. So if you have a reader that loves to visit the library and check out books, or prefers to purchase them at a bookstore, or even download them on their e-reader as long as they read 8 books they are eligible to receive a free book.

To complete their journal all your kids need to do is go to the Barnes & Noble Summer Reading page and download the Reading Journal PDF and have them fill out the 8 books titles, authors, and have them write a recommendation for the book to someone they know. Then they just have to fill out their name, school, and have a parent signature and take it to your local Barnes & Noble and they can redeem their journal for a book off of the list.

So get those readers ready for the trip of their lives this summer with Barnes & Noble.
