It’s August, which means back to school for a lot of parents and teachers. For libraries it means Summer Reading Programs are finally over and we can breathe again.
For Hello Yellow Writers, it means we’re reminiscing over our favorite books from grade school and junior high.
Remember the first book you just couldn’t put down? The novel or series that made you fall in love with reading? We’re re-reading the favorites we haven’t touched since we were kids to see if they still hold up to our adult scrutiny. We’re keeping our expectations high, so any devastating “How did I possibly enjoy this?” moments can be all the more soul-crushing.
We’re inviting you to join in on the conversation and enter for a chance to win a big HYR Giveaway!
Follow our Facebook page or Instagram, then like this post and comment with your favorite grade school title. You’ll be entered to win a bookish typewriter tote from Literary Book Gifts and other Hello Yellow Room swag!
Read along with us for additional entries!
Complete any or all of the book club activities below and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org to premiere on our September Back To School Mega Post and earn bonus entries into the HYR Giveaway:
- Nerdy pictures of you with your favorite grade school book
- Even nerdier pictures of you reading your favorite grade school book
- 300 word reviews of your favorite grade school books (We know you want to talk about Harry Potter ’til you’re blue in the face, but keep it punchy.)
Each book club activity counts as another entry in the drawing, which closes September 7th!
Read like a kid,
win like an adult.
