Harlequin’s 100,000 book challenge

Written by Vicki Hinze

On December 26, 2010

The Harlequin community is committed to reading 100,000 Books this year to benefit the National Center for Family Literacy.

This is an unprecedented opportunity for all of us to help fight illiteracy at the grass roots level.

If the Harlequin community achieves its goal of 100,000 books read, it will be donating the equivalent number of books to this charity–and this charity is working hard to find solutions to the literacy crisis, so we need to do our part to make sure this a success.

That Harlequin book donation is equivalent to $700,000.  You know how much that kind of donation can benefit women and their families.

We all want to make a difference in the lives of others.  Here’s a shot to do just that.  Reading impacts lives; we know it does.  So get involved.  Be a part of making a difference.

register and participate.  Blog about the books you read this year.


Read a book and create a book review.   Do that, and you’ve added one more book to the total–and the National Center for Family Literacy is one book closer to getting those books!

We love reading–so much so that sometimes we feel we need a license to do more of it.  Well, consider this your license (you’re reading for a worthy cause, a critical purpose) and go for it!

Here is the link to the challenge rules and an introduction.  Please, please, use it!
