#ReadProud Week 2!

Thanks to the outpouring of support for #ReadProud, I'm starting a different blog post for each week to keep things a little bit more organised. You can read about the overall structure of the event here. You can also find out about the prizes there! 

Remember, each week there are two categories. Participating in one category and reading one book per week makes you eligible for the Silver Prize Draw. Participating in both categories and reading two books (or more!) per week makes you eligible for Gold Prize Draw!

For your book to count towards the draw, you have to leave a review on GoodReads and at least one retailer website. If you're not comfortable posting reviews, you can still participate, but unfortunately you won't be eligible for a prize draw. Leave links to your reviews in the comments for the Week!

    1. I’m not sure! I guess try to read another on the list, and then finish it. But if you run out of time, then maybe? We’ll put it to a vote with the other entries. I don’t want people struggling through books they don’t like!

  1. Oh this sounds like fun! Yay for you hosting a cool thing like this. 😀 I’ll have to go check out the original post because I looove reviewing and it’s great to support lgbt+ books this month for sure. 🙂
