2015 Diversity Reading Challenge Dewey's Read-a-thon

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon Hour 3 Mini Challenge: DIVERSITY SHELFIE

WELCOME to Hour 3 of Dewey’s Readathon! It’s going to be a great event and since it’s early in the Readathon,





I don’t know about you but I’m all about diversity! It’s what makes the world go ’round and my tiny brain go pitter patter. I can’t get enough of books about people of different colors, ethnicities, orientations, languages, etc. Diversity is the honey in my coffee. ┬áMaybe you love diversity as much as I do or maybe you need to step up your Diversity game. Either way, now’s your chance to SHINE!

Here’s how you do the Diversity SHELFIE Mini Challenge:

  • go to your shelf
  • find a book containing diversity
  • take a selfie with said book (hence the term “shelfie”
  • post to Instagram (or Twitter if you don’t have IG)
  • tag [email protected]
  • post the title of the book and a word or two about why you love the book
  • enter as many times as you want


Don’t have a book containing diversity in your stacks? No worries!

  • find a photo of a book with a diverse character that you’ve read or want to read
  • save it
  • upload it to Instagram (or Twitter)
  • tag me. I’m still @pamlovesbooks
  • post the title of the book and a word or two about why you love the book
  • enter as often as you like
  • if you don’t have Instagram or Twitter, leave a comment below with a diverse book

Here’s a sample of my Shelfie.

I’ll do another one during the challenge. Probably won’t have lipstick on but whatever, right?

When we’re done I hope to have a list of new Diverse books to read and enjoy, cuz you can never have enough books, right?

Challenge will run through hour 21 os LET’S GET GOING!

I’ll choose a winner (or maybe 2) and post it here. Prize is a super duper cute bookmark or if you’re outside the US you can choose a prize from the main site.

Just for Fun Challenge 2012 – Update

My first challenge to attempt this year might be an easy one.

I say might because, well it might prove difficult.

I’m joining Escape with Dollycas Into a Good Book for the Just for fun Challenge!

The challenge? It’s to read one book a month that is completely and totally for fun. For Fun? For reals!

As book bloggers it is easy to get bogged down and forget to read something fun, what I like to call pleasure reading.

So. I’ve decided to try this!

Hopefully this will help clear out my TBR list, right?

I am committing to read just one book for fun each month!
JANUARY: A Christmas Blizzard by Garrison Keillor

Interested? Go on over and sign up. Follow along on Goodreads too!

Let me know how you’re doing, mkay?
