**New page rules for Round 2**

550-749 pages: 2 books
750-949 pages: 2.5 books

Rule Refreshers: (previously published by Jillian for Round 1)


The main rule-KIPP: Keep It Positive, Please! This is all in the mode of encouraging reading and we want to be positive role models for our students. All-in-fun trash-talking is fine, but please keep it in the spirit of the purpose of this reading event! Thanks so much! :)

The winner(s): EVERYONE because we're all going to be reading more (we hope) and growing our community/network of teachers and librarians on twitter and beyond. But the group (Librarians or Teachers) that reads more, determined by a collective total figured into books/person, does get the bragging rights.


So, what are you waiting for?  
Sign up and get READING!
