Barnes & Noble Summer Reading Triathlon
In the theme of Mr. Lemoncello's Library Olympics, which I am currently reading and loving, Barnes and Noble is having a fun-filled summer reading program with puzzles, code-breaking, and the chance to earn a free book! Opening ceremonies take place at local B&N stores this Saturday, June 4th at 11 am. This is an awesome way to get your summer reading in!
