We’re checking in at a little over the halfway point to let you know what’s been happening at the National Homeschool Book Award.
*NEW* Book Review Site
Our big announcement is that we’ve launched a new sister site called What We’re Reading, and it’s…well, it’s all about what we’re reading! We’re browsing loads of books looking for the next four nominees, and this is a way to share some of what we’re reading along the way. We’ve got a searchable book list, as well as a separate book blog space, so check it out if you want to see what we’re reading!
Book Club Blog Wrap-Up – Resources for All Four Nominees
Last week, we wrapped up the final book club blog series! Valerie the Book Club Lady put together some great ideas for ways to explore each of the NHBA books with a book club of your own (even if your book club is just you and your kids!) If you didn’t catch those the first time around, you can still find all those entries and additional resources for each of the books archived on our website.
We’d love feedback on what we put out there this year—did you try some of the activities? what did you like? what did you not like? Help us make next year even better by telling us what you’d like to see more (or less) of! And, if you took the plunge and started a book club, we’d LOVE to hear about! Please drop us a line–and send a few pictures if you’ve got any you’d like to share!!
Voting Coming in October!
Voting will begin in October—we’re busy setting up a registration process for entering votes, and we’ll be sending out an announcement when that’s ready. And for any of you who signed up earlier in the year but got busy and haven’t yet found time to read the four nominees, don’t panic!! There’s still plenty of time to read the four books. Voting will open early October, but won’t close until late October—so you still have two and a half months. Get reading and join us for the vote in October!
We recently passed 5,000 visits to our website! Yeah!! We’ve had lots of great feedback and we’re delighted that we’re still getting interest from around the globe. Thanks, everyone, for helping spread the word!
