In the Middle Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by The O.W.L. and you can find complete instructions there as well as signing up.

1. You must read middle grade books. These are books deemed right for kids ages 9 (sometimes 8) - 12. Harry Potter would be considered a MG book. If you look for them on Amazon you need to look under children's ages 9-12.

2. Challenge starts Jan 17, 2010 and ends Dec 31, 2010. All books for the challenge must be read in that time frame.

3. Books for this challenge can cross over to other challenges.

4. Audio and ebooks count for sure!

5. There will be 4 levels:

5th Grader: At least 4 Books
6th Grader: At least 6 Books

8th Grader: At least 10 Books
