Summer Reading Program… for Grown Ups!

June 10, 2012 at 4:44 am (Events) (, , , , , )

If you’re in the Houston area, love to read, miss those summer reading programs you participated in as a kid, and have a Harris County Library Card, you’ll be happy to know about the Harris County Public Library Get A Clue Summer Reading Program.  And yes, its for kids AND adults, and the prizes are awesome.

HCPL will be drawing from registered readers to win a Kindle Touch eReader on Monday, June 11th.  Every two weeks of the program, we’ll randomly draw from current registrants for an eReader prize, either a Kindle Touch or a NOOK Simple Touch.  At the end of the summer, we’ll have drawings from readers who complete the program for one $30 Amazon gift card at each branch library and two grand prize drawings  — one for a Kindle Fire and one for a NOOK Color.

Thanks to the Harris County Friends of the Library for providing the prizes and their generous support of Summer Reading!

I’ve got my profile set up and my first three reading sessions entered.  I’m really excited about this, and hope to get an e-reader out of it so that I will be more accessible to upcoming authors as a reviewer.  I know its more cost efficient for authors to send an e-book rather than a hard copy, but I wont be getting myself an e-reader unless I win it or earn it via Amazon credit as an affiliate.  If/when I do get one, I will only accept review copies on it, I wont be purchasing e-books if the book is available in a traditional format.  I’m old school, what can I say.
