100 Books to Read Before Graduation
Take the Challenge: Read 100 books before you graduate! Open to the classes of 2021-2025, and books you read between 7th grade and senior year are eligible, so start tracking! You can track any book you have read from right now (after May 18th, 2020) until you graduate! You can track using the tracker (make a copy of the tracker below to do it electronically) or you can pick up a tracker from the HS library, or you can just keep track on plain old paper.
