Portable phone chargers will be awarded for:

  3. best review on social media
  4. most pages read by staff/faculty

Note: We love newspapers, magazines, and blogs too, but we're only counting the pages read in books for this particular contest. Audiobooks and e-books count; just use the page count from the print equivalent. By "diverse" we mean we will be looking for diverse author backgrounds/periods as well as diverse types of writing: poetry, nonfiction, genre fiction, short fiction, etc.
