A huge thank you to everyone who took part in our Reading Rewards challenge this year! Reading eight titles from different genres can be quite a demanding task in a limited time period but the vast and varied entries showed us your passion for reading. We really enjoyed reading your entries and discovering your opinions on the titles you selected; we even got some great recommendations from them.
This year’s winner of the £50 Love to Shop voucher has been selected at random and presented to our winner, Toni, a member of Palatine Library.
Speaking of the challenge, Toni shared with us how refreshing it was to read a selection of great titles rather than sticking to one genre. Her favourite title was Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer– a cautionary tale of a man who disappears into the depths of America’s wilderness. Toni, who is usually an avid chick-lit reader, told Blackpool Library Service that she really enjoyed exploring biography & non-fiction, and the Reading Rewards challenge has inspired her to read more widely in the future!
