Quest End

books in the forestComing out of the jungle? Emerging from the rain forest? Our 2007 Summer Quest ends September 10th, with the big evening party. Hundreds and hundreds of books have been read.

Where will your bunnies go next? This year's setting - the rain forest - was suggested by one of last year's participants, Yared. Put in your suggestions now for next years quest location.

We trust you had a good time and, since your quests were determined partly by choice and partly by chance, we hope you may now want to follow some of the other challenges that were off on other trails. Or read more books by any author you liked, or books about a subject you discovered. Just don't stop! Keep reading! Keep questing!

A scary book, or a mystery book, or a book about something mysterious
