The contest is open to USA participants only. The contest ends at 11:59 pm on September 4th. The winner will be chosen by getcombot.com and notified via direct message. Giveaway not affiliated with Instagram or Bookshop.org
What Makes the 2023 Summer Reading Challenge Special?
This year we are pleased to be partnering with Tree House Books, a literacy organization in Philadelphia. The mission of Tree House Books is to grow and sustain a community of readers, writers, and thinkers in North Philadelphia. Through multi-programs such as a traveling bookmobile, a neighborhood book delivery program, and on-site literacy services this organization gets books into the hands of children who need them the most.
Our summer reading challenge included a prompt to read a book about poverty and its impact. During the challenge, we hope to inspire a feeling of gratitude and giving. Since the prompt is also part of our year-long Reading Challenge, we will be hosting multiple in-person and virtual events and giving opportunities to raise funds and collect books for this incredible organization all summer long.
