How many people can be on my team?

Teams can be as small as one person and as large as 15 people. Choose one team member to serve as the team leader and liaison with KCPL. This person will receive occasional e-blasts from the library with information and encouragement about the challenge. The team leader is also in charge of maintaining the group's book log and submitting it to the library once the challenge is met.

My book discussion club reads the same title each month. How does that count on our team's book log?

Count the number of people who read the book. So if there are 10 people in your book club and they all read one title for the monthly meeting, give your team credit for 10 books read.

What if I read a book to my children, or we all listen to an audiobook together? How do we count that on our book log?

Each person who reads or listens to the book counts as a separate entry on the book log. So if your family of four listens to an audiobook on a family car trip, give your team credit for four books read.
