Spring Cleaning Challenge
Welcome to our newest reading challenge! Are you like us with a TBR shelf that just keeps growing? Time to clean up that TBR. And what better motivation to clean up that shelf, than cool prizes?
In order to participate you must have either a goodreads or shelfari account & you must be willing to give us access to your shelf (send us your GR profile link or shelfari shelf link).
This challenge will start March 20th (first official day of spring) and will end June 21st (first day of summer).
Spring Cleaning Challenge
Step 1: Sign up to participate. You do this simply by stating in the comments section that you want to participate and which account you’ll be using (shelfari or goodreads). There’s no downside or obligation to actually do anything after you sign up.
Step 2: Clean up your TBR. What does this mean? It means, that it’s time to go through your pile of TBR (to be read) books and delete the ones you’re no longer interested in reading or cross off any you have accidentally forgotten to mark as “read.” For some of you, this number will be zero.
Step 3: Let us know when you are done cleaning your shelf.
Step 4: Wait for us to give you a book. How will we do this? We will scan your TBR shelf and we will select a book we want you to read.
Step 5: You must read the book and provide a minimum of a 3 sentence review once you have completed the book. Email your review to firstname.lastname@example.org. No exchanges — Once we assign you a book, that’s the book you have to read to move on. This is why cleaning up your TBR (step 2) is so important!
Step 6: Repeat steps 4 & 5 as many times as you like until the end of the challenge.
For each book that you complete, you will be assigned 1 point. We will keep a running tally of standings and this will be posted in our “challenges” page — found in our menu bar.
At the end of the challenge, all the points that you accrue will be used as entries into our raffle to win some cool prizes including Amazon gift card, books, and book-related stuff. So if you read 1 book, you get one entry, if you read 10, you get 10 entries, and so on. All winners will be selected randomly through random.org.
One final rule — Books added to your TBR after today (March 20, 2015) will NOT be included in the challenge. So no sneaky adding of books last minute to try and get a better draw. You can keep adding books during those months, we just won’t count them in our selection when we assign you a book.
NOTE: We recommend you try to get your books from the library if possible. But, if you plan to buy your books from Amazon, please go through our store to purchase your books.
The link to the store is http://astore.amazon.com/therearoo020-20.
If you access the books through our link, we get a small (and we’re talking cents here) portion back that we use to then give back out to you in better prizes.
