        Questions:

         

        Who can participate? 
        Babies, toddlers, preschoolers, children, teens, adults — everyone!  Children too young to read by themselves are welcome to participate by having a parent or caretaker sign them up and read to them.

        Can I count books that I read on my computer or e-reader? 
        Of course! It’s all the same to us.

        Can I count time that I spend reading to my kids? 
        For sure! We love when you read to your kids!

        Can I count audiobooks? 
        You bet!

        Can I count the time that I spend reading a book even if I don’t finish it?
        Absolutely! Ten minutes is ten minutes.

        Can I join the program after its official start date? 
        You bet! And if you can remember any reading that you’ve done after the official start date, you’re welcome to go back and count that.

        Can I count reading that I’ve done before the official start date? 
        Actually, we do ask that you count only reading you’ve done within the official dates of the program.
