Calling all bookworms! Are you up for a reading challenge?

Book worms take note! The closing date for the Ark Book Awards 2019 has now been extended to May 24th, so there is plenty of time to take part and read this year’s shortlist if you haven’t already done so.

Currently in its second year, the Ark Book Awards encourage Ark Academy pupils to take part in a reading challenge to establish the most popular book amongst our libraries. This year’s shortlisted books are:

  • The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Rauf
  • The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson
  • The 1,000 Year Old Boy by Ross Welford
  • The Definition of Us by Sarah Harris
  • Run, Riot by Nikesh Shukla

All pupils and students at Bolingbroke Academy are invited to sign up and can join in by picking up a shortlisted book, all of which are available in the library. Then all you need to do after reading the book is to rate if on the voting form found inside the book and then  to the library. You can read all the books as many times as you like before you make your decision, so happy reading!
