Prize winner names will be posted in front of the library sometime next week.
Viking Read Voting begins today! Have you read any or all of our Vikings Read titles this year? If so, click here and vote for you favourite? First 100 to vote will receive a prize!
Do you prefer the mystery of the Outback or the slowing of the Earth creating personal and environmental disaster? Maybe you prefer the mystery of Sherlock Holmes or perhaps the fantasy game that seeps into reality? Is it narration by a dog or street urchins that pique you interest? Is it the utraviolent streets of a graphic novel or ultraviolent southern Africa that you can empathize most with? Do you prefer to laugh with the bullied or be spooked by what lurks in the forest?
We want to hear it all so be sure to vote! Let us know which book you feel all Vikings (that’s you Burnaby North students!) should read and why. You can also nominate books for future Vikings Reads.
Voting runs from May 1 – May 26.
Winner will be announced at the Vikings Read celebration on Wednesday, May 28th at lunch. Join us then for cake and prizes!! Due to circumstances beyond our control, the party has been cancelled. The Vikings Read 2014 winner will be announced during Wednesday’s PA announcements .
You can only vote once.
