Bad Book Challenge

Bad Book Challenge (Teens)

What makes a book? Annoying characters? Cheesy dialogue? Too much plot, or maybe too little? All of the above? Niagara Falls Public Library has handpicked a book list so bad it's good, so you can enjoy a summer full of guilt-free pleasure reading from the comfort of your phone, tablet or computer. Because, as we all know, sometimes the best book is a bad book. Claim a badge as you finish—or mostly finish—each book you read. The more badges you collect, the more chances you'll have to win one of our very exciting prizes, including the Grand Prize: a Samsung Galaxy Tablet!
