How the Summer Reading Club works:

You can join the club and begin your reading on Saturday, May 31st.
Sign-up online at www.tplonline.org or at your local Tacoma Public Library branch.

The first day to submit a review is Saturday, June 14th.
Read 5 books (or read 4 books and attend 1 program) by 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 9th to be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for a chance to win a new iPad.

There are two ways to keep track of your books and share your reviews:
You can use this log to write a short review of each book. Bring the log with you and report your reading at the Summer Reading Reporting Station the next time you visit your local Tacoma Public Library.

You can submit your reviews online through Library’s Summer Reading website.

Each week that you submit a review online or in the library, you will be entered into a weekly drawing for fun prizes, including tickets to a Tacoma Rainiers baseball game, passes to Northwest Trek, and tickets to the Puyallup Fair.

Once you have finished reading and reviewing your first 5 books (or 4 books and 1 program), for every additional 5 books you read and review you will be entered
again into the Grand Prize Drawing for a chance to win a new iPad.

Review
Main character lives with his Grandpa and has puzzle but doesn't use the bear spirit. He lives in this world. A character named Pegasus invented the game Duel Monsters. Pegasus can see through one of your eyes so he can see your cards -- he is unbeatable! He challenges the main character and beats him. He traps the main characters grandfather in a card. They communicate via video. They go to an island. They play the game on a boat and try to get ten stars to win (they each start with three). If you get 10 stars you battle Pegasus which the main character must do so he can free his Grandpa. I liked the plot!  Library Catalog
