Happy New Year, Savvy Readers!
Is your New Year’s Resolution to read more books? That’s a great idea! We can’t wait to help you reach your reading goal with the new and improved 50BookPledge.ca!
Like last year, we invite you to make reading a priority in 2014 by signing up for the 50 Book Pledge. You can pledge to read anywhere between 12 and 200 books and keep track of your progress with our “Read” and “To Be Read” shelves. We’ll help you reach your goal with fun incentives like badges, contests and giveaways!
Returning to the 50 Book Pledge? New features this year include multiple shelf options, so in addition to your “Read” and “To Be Read” shelves, you can also reserve a shelf for your “All-Time Favourites”, “Graphic Novels”, “Re-Reads” and more! We’re using one of our personalized shelves to keep track of our Savvy Reader Book Club Picks!
We’ll continue to offer weekly reading recommendations with our 50 Book Pledge Featured Reads, but this year isn’t just about the books; it’s about you, too! Tell us more about yourself with your own online 50 Book Pledge profile. Share as much-or as little- as you like: your favourite author (mine is Heather O’Neill) or your favourite book (if you can choose just ONE!). Anything!
Most importantly, though, we want to celebrate the 50 Book Pledgers who, by sharing their shelves, sharing suggestions for the new pledge and sharing reading, helped us make the 2013 50 Book Pledge such a success. You guys are seriously awesome, and were going to let you know it! Each week, we’ll be picking a Featured Reader to highlight on our homepage. Do you want to be a Featured Reader? Share your shelf with us via twitter, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate yourself. You can nominate a friend, too!
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you to the pledgers who made 2013 such a great year. For those new to the 50 Book Pledge, welcome! You are about to join an exclusive group of engaging and enthusiastic readers and authors. On behalf of all of us at The Savvy Reader, and my fellow Pledgers, welcome to the 50 Book Pledge. We look forward to chatting about books with you!
