Chutes and Ladders Reading Challenge
GAME OVER! Thank you to everyone who played. We hope you enjoyed the challenge. We will be posting the results of the hidden square prizes below along with your final square. Congrats to all who played since you all read quite a few books and hopefully cleaned up some TBR books.
To quality for a hidden prize square, you must have completed the book for the square you are standing on after today’s roll. In the event that more than one person is on the same square, the winner was selected using random.org
I will be contacting all the winners by end of week. Prizes will ship out by end of month. I’m still waiting on a few items for Keith’s box which will go out shortly. Congrats to everyone.
Grand Prize (Keith): Bookish Box that includes 5 books from your TBR (you submit a wish list and we pick 5 books from there to gift to you) plus lots of extra bookish goodies.
Avid Reader Prize: 7 of you read books every single week for a total of 13 books! I used random.org to select a winner and that winner is… Jessica! Congrats.
10 Hidden Prizes: 10 squares were selected at random as hidden prize squares. On these squares you’ll find a range of prizes including: Book box from Book Riot, 3 month Book of the month club gift subscription (US only, international winners will receive a gift card from book depository to pick their three books), t-shirt from Out of Print, surprise bookish goodie (worth approximately $25), Folio Society book , Literary Candle from Off the Page (our Etsy Store), and several free books.
