What a great excuse to read.

Inspired by its mission of helping children, youth and adults improve their literacy skills, the Victoria Literacy Connection is hosting its second annual BOOK BASH! reading challenge!

The VLC BOOK BASH! challenges readers of all ages to obtain pledges from friends and family for every 100 pages they read throughout August.

From the 6 year-old who delights her grandparents by reading 100 pages, to the keen reader who decides this is the summer to re-read all the Canada Reads winners, participants are invited to set a reading target, pick a theme (or not), and take part in the challenges and event buzz on social media.
