From Heidi Estrin:
AJL kicks off its first reading challenge with #Readukkah during Hanukkah, December 6-14, 2015.
It’s easy! Anyone can participate, including kids. All you have to do is:
- Read one Jewish book
- Review it online (include hashtag #Readukkah)
- During Hanukkah, December 6-14, 2015
You pick the book – any reading level, fiction or nonfiction, Jewish in any way you choose to define it.
Review your book anywhere online: on a blog, GoodReads, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, or even on AJL’s listserv, Hasafran.
Use the hashtag #Readukkah somewhere in your review to help readers find you!
By sharing your #Readukkah reviews of Jewish books, you will help spread the word about worthwhile titles, bringing them to the attention of more readers, increasing the market and supporting the publishing of Jewish books!
Sign up to participate in #Readukkah! All participants will be entered into a drawing for a free copy of FIREBRAND by Aaron Barnhart (Quindaro, 2015), YA historical fiction about August Bondi, a Jewish freedom fighter in the Civil War.
For each 12 sign-ups up to 36 (double chai), another giveaway copy will be added for a total of three chances to win!
Visit AJL’s blog to sign up and enter the drawing at http://jewishlibraries.org/index.php?id=302.
P.S. A few people signed up before we struck our deal with Quindaro for the giveaway. For those of you who signed up early, please email me at Heidi.Estrin@cbiboca.org and tell me your email address so you can be included in the drawing!
