Challenge Month 2021Hi everyone! Today we are kicking off the second of our four reading challenges in our 7th Annual Reading Challenge Month… and it’s TBR Pile Week! This week is all about dusting off those shelves and grabbing a book that may have been languishing for a while and need some attention. For this challenge, we are reading books that have been on our to-be-read list for at least a year.

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.

TBR Pile Week is sponsored by the fabulous folks at Tantor Audio! We love our audiobooks here at Joyfully Jay and many of the audio we review is published by Tantor. Tantor is giving away a great audiobook bundle to TWO winners. Both winners will get codes for all of these audiobooks:

  • The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting – KJ Charles
  • Headstrong – Eden Finley
  • His Truth – Riley Hart
  • Finding Joy – Adriana Herrera
  • Beyond the Sea – Keira Andrews
  • Not Dead Yet – Jenn Burke

I’m super excited about this prize, as there are some fabulous audiobooks here! 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).
