A new year means a lot of new things: resolutions (you’re likely not going to keep), a fresh start, and a boatload of leftovers. But, most importantly, a new year also means the launch of a brand new 50 Book Pledge! Whether you’re a seasoned 50 Book Pledger or are new to the game, here are some reasons why the 50 Book Pledge is the perfect reading challenge for every reader of every kind!
Keeps you reading
If you’re anything like me, the lure of Netflix is very, very strong. By signing up for a reading challenge with your friends and thousands of other readers across the world, however, you’ll be more likely to pick up a book instead of the remote.
Speaking of those friends and thousands of readers you’ll be reading with, the 50 Book Pledge community is a community of supportive readers and writers that cheer each other on and pick each other up when they need it most. Plus, we’re on Facebook and Twitter! By signing up, you’ll be entering a community that has vibrant discussions of books, offers recommendations to each other, and, most importantly, reads right along with you!
Keep your New Year’s resolutions
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions for readers is, somewhat ironically, that they will make more time to read. What better way to do so then by pledging to do it?! If you’re looking to make more time for reading, then this is the perfect tool for you!
Oh yeah, did we mention that we run exclusive giveaways for 50 Book Pledge users? That’s right – if you sign up for the 50 Book Pledge, YOU CAN WIN FREE BOOKS! That sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Bonus: We have a giveaway currently running! From now until January 31st, all 50 Book Pledge users can enter to win a prize pack featuring all of our Featured Reads for January, including Karen Hamilton‘s The Perfect Girlfriend, Jennifer Robson‘s The Gown, Jessica Barry‘s Freefall, Ben Philippe‘s The Field Guide to the North American Teenager, and Matt Haig‘s Notes on a Nervous Planet!
Expand your reading horizons
Between 50 Book Pledge Featured Reads and community recommendations, the 50 Book Pledge is all about getting people to experiment with books that they might otherwise not have picked up. Are you traditionally a fantasy reader? Get ready to try some historical fiction. Thriller reader? You might want to pick up a romance novel for once. After all, you never know when you’re going to discover your next favourite book.
BOOKS, BOOKS, AND MORE BOOKS!!!
Did we mention that the 50 Book Pledge is all about reading all the time? Yeah, thought that would hook you.
The 2019 50 Book Pledge is now live! Head over to 50bookpledge.ca to sign up now, be sure to join our brand new Facebook group, follow us on Twitter, and be sure to enter our giveaway for all of our January Featured Reads! Have questions? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @SavvyReader!
May the (reading) odds be ever in your favour,
