Can you top this?

The winner of the New York Public Library's Summer Reading contest is a 14 year old who read 325 books in 3 months. You can find out more about their contest winners here.

I wonder how Atlanta-Fulton's summer readers compared? I'm not even sure if they track the total number of books read during the summer in our local program - you only have to read 10 children's books or 5 young adult books to qualify for the prize drawings held at the local branches.

It might be interesting to hold a similiar contest at Ocee next summer (with a separate category for adults even? I'm not sure most of us have the time to read 325 books though, even in the summer!)
