The yearly Lectio Book Award Nominee List is a list of suggested reading titles for grades 4th-8th and level of participation is determined by each individual entity. Not all books are for all readers and participants are expected to act accordingly for their respective organization. The only requirement we have is that in order to vote, the entity is registered and the voting student must have read 5 books from the current list.
