Booking Through Summer Reading Challenge Announcement and Sign Up!

Posted May 15, 2015 by Kim in Challenges / 12 Comments


Who remembers doing BOOK IT as a kid? You read all summer long, your parents signed off on your accomplishments, and at the end of it all? Free pizza! We miss those days. Who doesn’t like getting rewards for doing one of their favorite activities!?

It was this thought that led us to create the Booking Through Summer Reading Challenge – the place where grownups get bookish delights for reading! From Memorial Day through Labor Day, you can enter daily to win paperbacks, swag, eBooks and gift cards. All you have to do is leave a link in the Rafflecopter to a review you’ve written for the book you read. It can be at one of the major retailers, on Goodreads, or even a blog if you have one! You can submit a link every day to enter, and at the end of the summer we will pull tons of winners for lots of goodies.

In addition, each week a different blog will host a mini challenge. This is an another opportunity for you to win by doing fun things like snapping a photo of your bookshelf or your favorite reading spot, all while hopefully finding some new blogs to love, too! On top of all of that, some of our FAVORITE authors will be popping up to talk about their favorite bookish memories and love for reading!

You don’t want to miss out of this! To keep up to date on all the happenings, you can follow us on Twitter at @kimberlyreads and @booknerdbetsy, join the Facebook event, or follow our blogs at kimberlyfaye reads and BookNerd Betsy. Tweet it! Share it! Tell your friends!! We want all the readers of all the books to come hang out this summer and share the reading love. Feel free to use the banner above and button on your blog! If you’d like to make the “official” commitment, add yourself to the linky below. (You’ll get bonus entries into the grand prize giveaway if you’re official!)

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #BookingIt when you post about the challenge on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Tumblr!

Stay tuned! We will be back with all of the official details and calendar soon. Stock up on books before Memorial Day, we’re ready for you to jump in with both feet!

The Booking Through Summer Duo,

Kim and Betsy

    So starting Monday we can post links to some great books we have read? I’ve never used goodreads before.
