Our local library has been running a reading challenge called The National Trail System Challenge 2011. It runs from April 10-November 12, 2011.
The purpose of the challenge is to pick a trail & then read books to total the number of miles on the trail. One page = one mile. Travel the length of your favorite trail or all 30 trails by using library resources. You can also listen to audio books ( 1 minute= 1 mile ) or walk or run ( 1 mile =1 mile on the trail)
I am happy to say I finished all 30 trails today ( with 2 days to spare!) The total number of miles is 50,036! I have to confess I resorted to reading Large Print books for the last few weeks.........lots more pages in them!
The trails range from 54 miles long ( Selma to Montgomery ) to 5665 miles ( California) and of course, I left the long one til almost the end. One nice thing about the snowstorm we just had, I was able to read alot!
And I discovered a few new authoors to read!
