TBD Summer Reading Club – 26th July

Now that all schools have broken up for the summer holidays (some schools have seven weeks off this year and have already been off for one week!) I wanted to introduce you all to The Book Detectives’ Summer Reading Club!Six weeks is a long time to be away from school and away from reading, so I wanted to share some fun reading challenges that we can complete over the holidays. The idea is to inspire each other to read in some different places and also to encourage each other to read something a bit different too! Reading should be fun and exciting and it’s something you can do anywhere! Now that our wonderful libraries are back open they usually run holiday reading challenges too, so hopefully some of the challenges can be combined.

For the next six weeks, I will set a weekly challenge here on my blog and I will also share this on my social media accounts. To enter the contest, you will need to share a photo of you completing the challenge to either my Facebook or Instagram account. The contest will run from Monday-Saturday, I will then select my favourite photo from that week and share this on Sunday at 5pm. Each winner will get to choose one of my book boxes as their prize. One winner will be selected each week.



This could be whilst out on a walk, somewhere at home you have never read before or if you have any trips out planned, take your book with you because you never know where you might find the perfect spot to do some reading.

A few details about the contest:

  • Please tag me in your photos @thebookdetectives so that I can see them and count your entry for each challenge.
  • Please make sure you are following my account on Instagram or Facebook.
  • Please only one entry per challenge.
  • Please make sure that we can see the book you are reading in your photo or share it with us in the caption. This will help other parents and readers get some ideas of other books to enjoy throughout the holidays.
  • UK entries only please.
  • You can read whatever you like! This could be a book, a kindle, a comic, a magazine or a newspaper.
  • Entries will close on Saturday 31st July at 5pm.
  • The winner will be announced on Sunday 1st August at 5pm.
  • Entries for children aged between 4-11 years please.

Please note your entries will be shared on Instagram and Facebook stories to help spread the love of reading and inspire others! Why not share the challenge with friends and family too and come up with some really interesting ideas for this week’s challenge.

I hope you enjoy your first week of my reading club! Have fun finding somewhere a little different to read this week and I will be back next Monday to share my next challenge!
