Keeping kids learning during the summer months is always a challenge.

When not in school their tendency to gravitate to the couch is strong.

But with these two reading incentive programs, at least when they take to the couch it could include a book or two.

Barnes & Noble once again is sponsoring a reading rewards program for 2012.

Kids keep a reading log, completing eight books, and turn it in before Sept. 4 to qualify for a free book.

Free titles include Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, The Phantom Tollbooth, Junonia, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, Lego Hero Factory: Meet the Heroes and others.

The program is for children up to a sixth grade reading level.

There is a limit of one free book per customer.

Another reading program, this time from Pottery Barn, runs through Aug. 22 and is for children up to age 10.

Kids can be eligible to win a backpack full of books and other prizes and can also qualify for a free book.
