Summer Reading Program is still a few months away, but if you're wanting a reading challenge sooner than that, check this out: the YALSA 2014 Hub Reading Challenge has arrived! Check out the list--it's comprised of the 2014 award winners & lists for awards such as the Printz Award, the Alex Award, the William C. Morris Award, and more. Anyone can join this challenge, and those who complete it are entered in a drawing to win a bunch of YA books and goodies. Participants have to read 25 of the titles on the list to complete the challenge--how many books can you read before time is up? (Leah is going the distance, and challenging herself to read the whole list!!)

But the trouble may have followed her from Egypt...
