The Summer of Story: Reader Rewards 2021 Summer Reading Program

Posted on June 3, 2021


Happy Summer, fellow book lovers!

While you’re probably excited for outdoor barbecues, family vacations, and days lounging by the pool, the fun wouldn’t be complete without a summer reading program! We encourage you to sign up for one at your local library, but in case you don’t have access to a library (or one reading program simply isn’t enough!), you can join the fun at My Reader Rewards Club all summer long.



Each month, we’ll feature a new Summer Reading Hub on the Reader Rewards blog with book recommendations and related videos. Plus, there will be additional monthly activities featuring more ways to earn points and a chance to win one of dozens of book giveaways!

This year’s theme is “Summer of Story,” not only to honor the books that have made us laugh, cry, and stay up way too late, but also to honor the stories of readers like you. Yes, you!

Whether you realize it or not, you have your own story to tell—and others are waiting to hear it.

That’s why each Summer Giveaway Bonus Activity is designed to help you reflect on your own story and be inspired to share it. Just as the stories you’ve read have helped shape who you’ve become, your story has the potential to make a difference in others’ lives.

Get ready to explore your story, complete fun activities, and enter to win books and prizes—all while earning points towards more free books! Let’s journey through this #SummerofStory together and see what the next chapter holds.
