Challenge Month 2021Hi everyone! I can hardly believe it, but today we are starting our fourth and final week in our 7th Annual Reading Challenge Month! I can never believe how quickly this event seems to fly by!

Our final challenge is Judge a Book By Its Cover Week! I love a beautiful cover and find a great cover can totally sell me on a book. So this week we are choosing books for our challenge because we like the covers. We have chosen some great books to read, and if you need ideas for your own read-along book, you can check out our Monthly Favorite Covers posts for some inspiration.

If you missed the lead up to the event and need some information about what is going on, check out our Kick Off post. It has all the details about the event, how to get involved, and how to win prizes.

Judge a Book By Its Cover Week is sponsored by the fabulous folks at JMS Books! JMS is giving away FIVE $20 JMS bookstore gift cards! That should give you plenty of shopping money to pick to pick out some great books of your choice!

And don’t forget, at the end of the month we will be drawing for our Grand Prize sponsored by NineStar Press. They are giving away a Kindle Paperwhite loaded with 50 NineStar Press books! So all your entries each week will be counted toward the final grand prize as well.

You can enter to win prizes by commenting on challenge posts or reading along with you own challenge books and writing a mini review on Friday (check out all the rules and details on the kick off post).

  • The Bachelor’s Valet by Arden Powell
