Participants need to:

  • read for 5 hours and
  • write a book review 

In Beanstack, you have to complete both badges to be entered in the weekly drawing for that week’s prize. See what it is when you visit the library. For paper logs, you need to complete both tasks to get 1 raffle ticket. Please return logs to the reference desk and receive your ticket.

Book: Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby

“For fans of: Bullitt, The Fast and the Furious and gritty Elmore Leonard-style noir… [Cosby] never lets up on the gas. The result is a high-octane, white-knuckle thriller that will have readers whipping through the pages at breakneck speed…Cosby’s tightfisted prose fuels this story with heart-pumping (and often brutal) action that begs to be adapted for the big screen but never loses its compassionate edge.” ― Bookpage
