Reading Regatta

Fall Flight Reading Regatta

[Brady]: Wow, our first annual Fall Flight Reading Regatta! It feels like we just ended the Summer Smackdown Reading Regatta, and now it’s already September!

[Auntie Obvious]: A “flight” is a sample of four cool things, so with the Fall Flight Reading Regatta, you pick four books of your choice to read between now and October 30th!

[Brady]: Let’s make up some complicated rules!

[Auntie Obvious]: Dude, ever heard the acronym KISS? Keep it Simple, Sailor? But we do need to decide if the book you are currently reading counts as one or if you start with your next book.

[Brady]: You start with the next book.

[Auntie Obvious]: Dude. I’m like 150 pages into Rick Riordan’s the Red Pyramid, and it’s about 550 pages long.

[Brady]: Rules are rules. ::shrugs::

[Auntie Obvious]: OK, fine. Should we show everyone the awesome Fall Flight Reading Regatta trailer that we made?

[Brady]: Lights, camera, action!

[Brady]: So how do you know who wins?

[Auntie Obvious]: Everyone gets participation awards!

[Brady]: What about the weekly updates and point breaks that we did for the Summer Smackdown Reading Regatta?

[Auntie Obvious]: Dude. Keep it Simple.

[Brady]: Fine. But you and I are having a contest to compare page totals from our four books.

[Auntie Obvious]: Fine. It. Is. On.

[Brady]: Keep Reading. Sail On. And welcome to the Fall Flight!
