Welcome to the very first 300 Picture Books linky. As this is the first week there’s a bit of extra blurb to read, but I should move it all to the intro post eventually.
You can choose to track your picture book reading in whatever way you like, and can join the linky with any online tracking you’re using e.g. blog post, Pinterest board, Goodreads shelf, Shelfari, Library Thing, GoogleDocs, Instagram, Twitter…
If you want to tweet, the official tag is #300PBs, which I’ll selectively retweet. I’ll also comment on every blog post linked up and follow on whatever I’m already a member of (e.g. Pinterest, Goodreads, Twitter). Tweet or mail me if I miss you 😉
There will be a weekly post every Monday where I’ll list our different books read for the previous Monday through Sunday. The linky will be open until the following Sunday. You don’t have to link up every week, or even any week (unless you want to enter a giveaway).
You can join #300PBs at any point, but may take on a smaller challenge to compensate. For example, 275 books if you join in February; 150 books if you join in July. The title and tag will remain the same for simplicity.
I will try to have a giveaway once a month, on the first Monday of the month, although for the first few weeks there might be a weekly one. There will be a variety of prizes across all age ranges, depending on what review books we receive! Open to UK addresses only I’m afraid but if you’re based elsewhere and have someone in the UK I can send to, that’s not a problem.
This month’s prize is a selection of baby and toddler books from Child’s Play International and Hodder Children’s Books. The titles included are:
Bib On, Bunny!: Annie Kublar (Child’s Play)
Monkey and Me: Angela Muss (Child’s Play)
Look at Me, I’m a Robot!: Sebastien Braun (Child’s Play)
Clap Your Hands: Kay Widdowson (Child’s Play)
Sticky Storybooks – Cars and Trains: Karen Wallace & Jo Lodge (Hodder Children’s Books)
To enter the giveaway, you must* enter the linky and leave a blog comment. The winning entry will be chosen at random from blog post comments. If you don’t leave a comment, I’ll assume you don’t want to enter.
* You can enter by just leaving a blog post comment if you have nothing to link up, just tell me where you are in the challenge or a favourite read from the last week instead.
The giveaway is open to enter until the linky list closes on Sunday 12th January 2014, and a winner will be chosen at random from the comments.
