Reading for Charity in 2009

November 1, 2008


What: The Year of Readers 2009
When: 1 January – 31 December 2009
Who: Jodie (Book Gazing)
Rules: The participants of this challenge raise funds for a reading-related charity of their choice. Getting other people to sponsor you — pledge money based on number of books — is strictly voluntary. Due to the nature of the challenge, there are very few restrictions on what counts as a book: for example, graphic novels and poetry anthologies count; newspapers and magazines do not. To read more about the challenge, visit The Year of Readers website.

The charity I chose is First Book.

My personal pledge is $2.00 per book. I hope to read 60 books by the end of the year.

I will track my progress on the 2009 Master Reading List.

    Jodie – You’re welcome! And thanks for responding to Lindy. I thought she meant she wanted to sponsor me. 😕

    Lindy – The neat thing is, you get to pick the charity. It only has to be a book/reading based charity like “Reading Is Fundamental” (RIF) or “First Book”. Jodie’s website has links to several book-related charities you can check out. Good luck!
