Hi gang! As we continue the lead up to our Reading Challenge Month in September, I’m sharing one of my favorite posts for the event — our Prize Preview!
Every year we have some fabulous publishers and amazing authors who help support our event with their generous prize contributions! As a reminder, the event is a series of four, week-long reading challenges. Each week has a sponsor and an accompanying prize. And then there is a huge grand prize at the end! Readers can enter to win prizes by commenting on our challenge reviews and/or by reading along any of the weeks with their own challenge books and writing a mini review at the end of the week (one entry per comment, 10 entries per read-along review). You can get more details on the event here, including the reading challenges. Full rules and contest details will be upcoming as we get closer and it is never too soon to start picking your books!
We are still finalizing the prizes, so I will be updating this post as we get closer. But for now, here are some things to tempt you into getting involved!

Nice! My goal will be to somewhat reduce my TBR. Hopefully I manage. Certainly looking forward to it. Hmm… I should make a list beforehand I think. 🙂
Yes, reducing TBR is always a good goal, lol! And yeah, I think making a list helps. Also next week we will be sharing what we are reading and helping to point folks toward books that may fit the challenges for them
Can’t wait. 🙂
Me too! Glad you are looking forward to it!
I am definitely eager to participate!
And a big thank you to all the donors!
LOL – I am Looking forward to ‘judge a book by its cover’. Because a cool cover will get my interest quickly 🙂 I admit to being an art person. And yes, I have bought books for their covers.
Oh me too! Covers are so big for me!
