YALSA's Hub Challenge

It's that time of year again. YALSA's Hub has issued a challenge: between now and June 23rd, read at least 25 of the titles that were honored this year at the Youth Media Awards (YMA) at ALA Midwinter. As usual, I have already read quite a few of the titles on this list, so if I want to conquer the challenge, as I attempt to do every year, I will be re-reading 27 books an reading 68 other books for the first time. We'll see how well I do this year.

There is a prize for finishing 25 titles on the list: there is a drawing for a bag of young adult books, which would be a great addition to anyone's library. If you're interested in participating, check out the Hub's post on the challenge for the rules and information, and grab this copy of the official list.

And may the odds be ever in your favor!
