Book Prizes for the Award-Winning-Books Reading Challenge for July-December
We are very happy that the Award-Winning-Books Reading Challenge that we are hosting this year has really taken off. Currently, we have 46 participants who have joined the challenge. Our database (which Iphigene takes pains in updating regularly) has an average of 36-38 book reviews per month from participants coming from all over (check out our April database here). That, in itself, I feel is a measure of success! For those of you who have not joined us yet, you can still sign up here until end of November.
Pansing Books has also kindly extended their sponsorship of book prizes until December. Here are some of the goodies that you should be expecting between July-December.
