Teachers Brian (@brianwyzlic) and Jillian (@heisereads) along with librarians Kathy (@thebrainlair) and Sherry (@LibraryFanatic) have invited all to participate in a #summerthrowdown. This is a friendly and fun competition between librarians and teachers. According to Jillian's blog the purpose is:
"To support, encourage, and celebrate reading and librarians and teachers. To network with other teachers and librarians on twitter to grow our PLNs. To enjoy a friendly challenge to keep us motivated to read as much as possible this summer. To hold ourselves accountable because we'll have to tell someone how much we're reading."
This pairs very well with #bookaday and so I figured I would jump on in and give it a try. Let the games begin!
