  • Read 800 minutes for a $15 Barnes & Noble Gift Card & we will make a $5 donation to the Marion Stoddard Greenway Fund
  • Read 1000 minutes for a Ticket to the Grand Prize Drawing for an iPad, and earn an additional ticket for every 500 minutes you read after that.

There are also optional Book Review challenges which will earn tickets for a drawing for a $50 Barnes and Noble Gift Card.

To participate you need to create an account on the Beanstack tracker app or on the web at Create an account using your email address and then register for the Read Beyond the Beaten Path Summer Reading Program. READ ANYTHING! Log the minutes you read to earn badges and prizes. You may also choose to write book reviews to earn tickets for a drawing for a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card.
