Hi everyone! Last week we started our 5th Annual Reading Challenge Month and things have been amazing so far! If you want more details on the event itself, including specifics on how to enter for prizes, check out the kick off post.

Last week we held our first challenge, New-to-Me Author Week! And this week we start Diverse Books Week. This is one of my favorite challenge categories as I feel that reading books with diverse characters and by diverse authors is incredibly important. For this week’s challenge, there are lots of options. Some suggestions include books with racial, cultural, and religious diversity. Also, stories featuring characters with diverse physical and mental abilities. Or, books featuring characters under the wide range of LGBTQ stories, beyond just cis gay/bi men. So there are lots of options and we hope you will join the challenge and find a great book to read along with us!

Diverse Books Week is sponsored by NineStar Press. They are donating a SIX $20 NineStar Press bookstore gift cards! Woo hoo! So lots of prizes this week for readers who join in with us by commenting on challenge posts or reading along with their own challenge books and writing a mini review on Friday (check out all the rules and details on the kick off post).
