Summer Book Trek

summerbktrekA fun reading challenge starts today at NewLDSFiction.com. If you haven’t visited this site yet, I encourage you to check it out. It’s great for learning about fiction that is written by LDS authors in different genres. Since I love romances, I appreciate authors who write clean stories. This site helps in that search for what is wholesome. For July, you can enter the Summer Book Trek challenge by posting about what book or books you want to read this month. Easy peasy, right? Here’s the link.

HOW TO PLAY

Who: ALL fiction readers!!! (If you’re under 18, you have to have your parent’s permission. You do not have to be LDS to participate.)

What: Read novels by LDS authors. Set your goals and track your progress. No goal is too small; no ambition too great. Feeling overwhelmed? Make a short list. Finish early? Add more books (or not). Change your mind on a title? Drop it. No pressure, no minimums. Make changes to your list as desired.

Where: The blogosphere. [Don’t have a blog? You can still play. Send me an email and I’ll tell you how.]

Why: We need a reason to read?!? Says who???

How to Participate: You earn points for reading and reviewing books, nominating books for a Whitney award, and for connecting on social media. More points = more chances to win books! Use the Rafflecopter form on the site to claim your points.

Prizes: Prizes are books (print and/or ebooks) provided by LDS authors or their publishers. 

Challenge ends July 31, 2016
