Rufus Reads: reading our way around the world!

The Geography Bee is a big deal at our school. One of our students made it to the national level for the state of Washington, and another represented our school at the state finals! Reading is also a huge passion of among our students. 

Inspired by London writer Ann Morgan's blog "A year of reading the world," I'm setting a challenge for our students and staff. Those who choose to participate will:

  • Read a book set on each continent or by an author from each continent (Antarctica is optional)
  • Track their progress on the maps hanging up in the Library Learning Commons (we'll draw a line from place to place so you can see where your journey takes you!)
  • Let the LLC staff know which books they read, so we can update our ongoing list
Other guidelines:
  • Fiction and nonfiction are fine
  • Everyone will choose a book that's "just right" for their reading level
  • Listening to audiobooks definitely counts!
Between all of us, let's see how many different countries we can visit! Feel free to comment here with your favorite books from around the world.

Happy reading and armchair traveling!
