The Taste of Sweet Success

30 Things I Vow to Do This Summer

#19 – Participate in the various summer reading programs through our local library, Barnes & Nobles and Borders.


Allana and Emmalynn finished their Barnes & Nobles Summer Reading Passports so we visited the bookstore for them to claim their free books. To celebrate their accomplishments, I treated the girls to hot cocoa and cookies. They truly loved their sweet rewards.


Next, we take on the Borders summer reading program.

    You’re training her well! #1 is all over the summer reading program there. They will be gifting him his first free book in a few days time!

  2. Mellisa says:

    This is so sweet! I am such an avid reader and am trying to teach the same love of books to my children – they are being a little resistant – Maybe I should try one of these programs! Have a great week!

  3. kimert says:

    That is great! I remember summer reading programs from when I was kid. They were always such fun! She’s quite a cutie as well! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ah, thanks for the ideas! I love free books. ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re doing our library’s program, but I had no idea there were others. Off to visit…

    Oh, and congrats!

    This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

    Your daughter is beautiful! And, good for you for encouraging reading during the summer. I think my students read their cell phones and that’s about it.
