Do I have to read a certain kind of book?
Not at all! You can read fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels and comic books, newspapers, magazines, e-books, blogs and more. You can listen to someone read to you, or listen to an audio book—even reading the cereal box when you eat breakfast counts as reading in the Summer Reading Program.
