Readers' Choice Challenge

Between September and May of this school year I have challenged every student to be constantly reading . You are to be reading for 20 -30 minutes every night as well as during "The Zone" each week.
Remember for this class your novel is your textbook and I expect you to come to class with a novel to read. If you are almost finished your novel, and expect to finish it during the period, have another novel ready to go.
Here is a copy of the information that has been handed out so far.
