Hi gang! As I announced last week, our Fourth Annual Reading Challenge Month is coming up at the start of September. Our Reading Challenge Months are month-long events with a different reading challenge each week. The reviewers here read books for the challenges and readers can earn prize entries by commenting. Readers can also earn mega bonus entries by reading along with their own challenge book. More details are in our Coming Soon post, including information about each challenge.

This week I wanted to share some more information about our fabulous event sponsors. Each year we have some wonderful authors and publishers who sponsor a week and donate that week’s prize. We also have a grand prize and everyone who enters all month long is eligible to win. So all the details are not fully ironed out (blame me, it has been a crazy summer), but I do have some goodies I can share with you guys! (We are still finalizing our sponsor for International Week)
