Today begins our annual Summer Reading Challenge. This year we are doing something different. I will present a top ten monthly list of my choices, a daily spotlight of a great book for the summer, and weekly three book cluster that fits either a series or theme. You can choose from either stacks of choices.
The catch is I want us to get together and talk about these books online. In fact, I want to talk about these books online with the author. So, in order to do this I need to know which author you most want to talk to for the month of June and when, and I will try my best to hook that up. We will host our online bookclub via Christian Fiction's Twitter Bookgroup. We will chat in both Tweet chat and BlogTalkRadio or Ustream TV. This would depend on the author's digital capabilities. Sounds like fun?
Wait a minute. It don't stop there. I'm giving away books. I'm giving away three to five of the same book to a bookclub that needs a makeover. I'm also giving away copies to my best readers at Christian Fiction Blog. Because this month we have our 5 year Birthday. We're starting Kindergarten folks. We're learning how to ride bikes. And we're going up a notch, more focused Christian book contest, less pr and book marketing(you can find that on my other site) But CFB is going back to its roots and growing at the same time. So I'm looking for bloggers, book reviewers, and vloggers. Hit me up.
Let's make this summer reading challenge the Best.
