Reading for Charity in 2009
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.
