ZoLi best summer books 2019

Attention parents! We've decided that summer reading challenges should not just be for kids.  Why not join in on the fun?  This summer, we thought we would do a challenge that can be enjoyed by us parents.  (While also discovering the best books for summer 2019 and winning some free ZoLi swag!)

Join our parent-child summer reading program by recommending your top book choices in the comments below by Saturday, June 22. Just by telling us what you would read, you receive a FREE ZoLi tote bag, perfect for carrying your book stash to the park or beach!!  This bag is ZoLi exclusive not available for sale.

Here's how it's done:

FIRST, choose two books to add to your summer reading list. These can be any books you've had your eye on, or you can follow our guide below:

1. One book for fun!
  • This book has MANY possibilities! For this option, you can choose a story that you've had your eye on but just haven't found the time to get to reading. Whether it's a mystery, fantasy, or true story, this book should be from a genre you love that you know you'll enjoy till the end!
2. One book to learn
  • This book can teach you about anything you'd like! Whether it's about health, learning a new language, or even a historical novel, learning during summer break is a great way to keep your mind on high gear. 

    NEXT, once you have your two books picked out, comment below and email us your shipping information. We will ship you a brand new ZoLi tote bag to hold your best summer reads in. 

    LAST, make sure to create a reading schedule to make sure you have time for your books! While two books may seem like an easy task, the summer months are hectic and a calendar can help to keep you on track.

    Have fun picking your summer reading list and we can't wait to see your choices!

    Here are a few "top summer reads 2019" lists that may help with your choices!

     

    *Reading challenge begins June 19, 2019 and ends June 22, 2019. To receive a free tote bag, participants must comment their 2 summer reading challenge book titles below by June 22, 2019 and must provide their shipping address via email (hello@zoli-inc.com) or a direct message through social media (instagram or facebook)
