Spring Cleaning Challenge


Join us for our new challenge. Find the instructions here.

This page will be where we keep a running tally of our standings. The winner will receive an additional prize but otherwise, all other prizes will be awarded randomly using Of course, the more you read, the more entries you get into the prize pool. Note: If the random grand prize winner is the same person as the “top reader prize” then the top reader prize will go to the person in second place. That way more people get to win.

Congrats to Anita for winning a mystery prize -unlocked for being the first to complete a book!
