Charity Reading Challenge (Sign Up)

Charity Reading Challenge
Host: Becky's Book Reviews
Duration: January 2016-December 2016
 # of books: You decide! Though I'd suggest a minimum of 4 books.

Sign up by leaving a comment.

Read for a good cause! Buy books at a charity shop, or, even a friends of the library book sale, or, donate a certain percentage of money for each book you read for the challenge. You can choose your own goal of how many books to read, what charity you'll be donating money towards, how much money, etc. (For example, you might want to donate $1 for each paperback you read, or, $3 for every hardback you read. You can work out the details yourself.)

Rules:
  • Books and audio books, so long as purchased from a charity shop, count. E-books count if you donate a certain percentage of money to the charity of your choice. (You may read ANY book you choose if you donate your set amount.) Brand new books, old-and tattered out-of-print books. Both are welcome!
  • You do not need a blog to participate. You can comment on this post or any challenge-related post to update others on your progress. 
  • Any qualifying book finished in 2016 can count towards the challenge.
  • Books can be of any length and be written for any audience. This challenge does not exclude picture books. 
  • Qualifying books can be books you've intended to read for ages, or, impulse buys!
  • No list is required, but, you can make one as you go if you like. The fun thing about this challenge is that everyone's list is going to be unique!
  • You may read for more than one charity if you like.

I love this! Since we don't have a lot of storage at home, I'm trying to cut back on the number of books I buy, so I would love to donate a set amount for each book I read - maybe by keeping track all year of the books I read and making one lump donation at the end of the year to the Special Olympics of New Jersey. And if I do buy books, I'll try to keep an eye out for charity stores or library sales! This is a really great idea; I read so much, so why not have some good come out of it?

Thanks for hosting this one. I'm constantly buying books from the Friends of the Library sale and they are accumulating.

This is such a great idea! Here is my sign-up/2016 challenges post: http://lingeringpianist.blogspot.com/2016/01/here-we-go-2016.html
I am challenging myself to donate a dollar for each book I read to a charity TBD. I'm also going to donate some of my books later in the year. But I decided to take it a step further by featuring different literary charities on my blog throughout the year--you know, keep this on the forefront of everyone's minds! :) Here is the link for my first charity feature post about Hogwarts Running Club: http://lingeringpianist.blogspot.com/2016/01/charity-challenge-hogwarts-running-club.html

Bev Hankins 2:19 PM  

Becky: I've fulfilled my book challenge (12 from charity/friend of library store/sales). I plan to keep tracking the amount I spend on charity book purchases--I'm curious to see how much I donate over a year's time.

Here's my Wrap-up Post
