After I purchase new books, instead of putting them all out at once, I pick 4 or 5 and display them on easels. I hang a Book Raffle Sign below each easel. I give a brief book talk on each the books to get students excited about reading them. Each student gets three pieces of paper and writes his/her name on them. They can place their papers in any of bins by each book. Some kids spread their papers between the bins, or if there is one book they really want to read, they put all three in that bin. Later on in the week I draw a name from each bin and the chosen students are the first to read those particular books.
