Harlequin and the National Center for Family Literacy

The 100,000 Book Reader Challenge

Harlequin has upped the ante! This year their reader challenge is for 100,000 books read in 2008. And here is the most cool part. The organization I work for is the official recipient of the books that Harlequin will donate
to a worthy cause. The National Center for Family Literacy, , is a national non-profit
literacy organization that has worked internationally to support literacy in families. I'm proud to be a part of NCFL, and just as proud to be a part of the 100,000 book reader challenge. The books donated this year will go to adults in literacy programs on American Indian reservations - the project that I work with. I can tell you that the woman in the programs are going to love getting these books!

I've signed up to read and post the books I've read this year. I'm just getting started and hope that you will consider joining me. I'll be blogging more about this as the year rolls on.

Here is the link for more info and to sign up for the reader challenge.

I have a subscription to Harlequin Super Romance, so I think I'll look into this.
