More ideas!

  • Head over to TeenReads.com for reviews, podcasts, author interviews, and much more.

  • Want to impress teachers and admissions officers? Stage a Read-In in your school. (And don’t forget to email us the pics.)

  • Volunteer to read to patients in a hospital or residents in a nursing home. Make a day of it by organizing a group trip of your friends and classmates. It’s a great way to share the joy of reading with people who can’t take their own trip to the library or bookstore.

  • Become a YouTube star! Reenact your favorite Bella and Edward scene, stage a book-related talk show with your friends, or come up with your own unique and crazy idea. And of course, don’t forget to send us the link.
