Library-loving Blog Challenge

This is a library-loving blog challenge!

For every commenter on this post between now and March 27th (Saturday), we will donate 25 cents to THE READING TUB, up to an amount of $100. We just featured THE READING TUB's very own founder Terry Doherty last week on our blog.

How easy could it be? You comment, we cough up the money, and an awesome volunteer-driven, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting reading and literacy gets a gift! If you don’t know what to say in your comment, “I love THE READING TUB” will do.

Note that our pledge is “per commenter”—so if a single person leaves 50 comments, that still only counts once! But you can do more by spreading the word ... please link to this post, tweet about it, and send your friends here so they can comment and raise more money.

If you’re moved to make a flat-fee donation to your library, or to start your own challenge, you are quite welcome, and please leave that information in the comments.

For a complete list of participating bloggers (and to visit other sites where you can help libraries just by leaving a comment!) visit the writerjenn blog at http://writerjenn.livejournal.com/

  16. “When people who can read and write start fighting on behalf of people who can’t, you just end up with another kind of stupidity. If you want to help them, build a big library or something somewhere, and leave the doors open.”~Terry Pratchett, Interesting Times.
