70 million minutes and counting!
By Nadia on July 31st, 2012
With the Olympics on, it’s hard NOT to get into the competitive spirit. We watch athletes accomplish amazing feats and set new records. Sometimes it’s a new world record, a new Olympic record, or a personal best. As Meagan announced, students participating in the Scholastic Summer Challenge have already broken the world record for summer reading minutes, but that’s no reason to stop reading and logging your minutes this summer. Ambitious readers around the world have logged over 70 MILLION MINUTES so far! We still have all of August to go, so let’s see just how high we can set the bar for next year!
We’ve already broken the world record, so let’s try to break individual records. How many minutes did you read last time you picked up a book? How much time did you spend reading in the last week? How many books did you read in the month of July? Got those numbers? Great. Now beat it! Read for five minutes longer today than you did yesterday. Read one more book in August than you did in July. You can do it! And don’t forget to log your minutes at Scholastic.com/summer. Come on readers around the world – let’s keep up the good work and see how much more we can do!
What’s your reading “personal best?” Can you top it?
