Adult Reading Challenge

and another year of Reading Dangerously

In 2013, InfoSoup Librarians challenged all adult library card holders to read books and write reviews in A Year of Reading Dangerously. Because of the success of this year-long program, they are continuing the challenge in 2014 with A Year of Listening Dangerously (and another Year of Reading Dangerously.) Why not broaden your horizons and try a new format? Audiobooks are a great way to fit reading into a busy day, and they are available on CDs or in downloadable digital formats. Continue the challenge, and read dangerously this year, with your eyes OR your ears!
