If you haven’t signed up for the #RogersReads reading challenge for 2020, now is the time! Click the #RogersReads image on the library website or use this link to begin logging your completed challenges and enter for monthly prizes! Each month, prizes will be awarded to two readers who enter a new book into their online log by the end of the month. If you complete all twelve prompts before February 2021, you will be entered for the grand prize that will be awarded at the end of the challenge.
Each month we will be highlighting one of the twelve reading prompts along with some ideas of titles that could fulfill that prompt. Share your own ideas and show off your progress by tagging us on social media with #RogersReads. Please remember that you can complete the #RogersReads prompts in any order using eBooks, audiobooks, or print copies of a title. We are excited to see what you select to fulfill this prompt!
Read a Book with “Bronze,” “Silver,” or “Gold” in the Title.
The 2020 Olympics were delayed, but you can still bring home the gold with some great books. For example, The Golden Child by Claire Adam, The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick, and The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare would make a perfect set on the podium.
The surest place to find bronze in our non-fiction collection is to look for the Bronze Age. Check out The Age of Bronze by Rob Kidd, The Great Bronze Age of China by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Introducing the Ancient Greeks : from Bronze Age Seafarers to Navigators of the Western Mind by Edith Hall.
Second place is still something to cheer about in our non-fiction collection. Black Gun, Silver Star by Art Burton, Silver, Sword, and Stone by Marie Arana, and Behind the Silver Screen by Daniel Herman are all available for check out.
We are looking forward to a year full of challenging new reads with you!
