2023 READ IT! Program

Do you have a reading goal for 2023? Do you struggle with finding your next read? Are you in a reading slump and looking for a way to get your reading going again? Are you searching for the nostalgia of receiving a certificate of completion, button, and your very own personal pan pizza?!  Don’t worry Books Around the Corner has you covered!

This year we are launching our very first READ IT! Program – #readitprogram
This challenge is open to anyone in the U.S.

- To signup fill out the Google Form HERE with your personal reading goal
- Purchase at least one of your 2023 reads with Books Around the Corner and email us to let us know that particular book is part of your challenge


- If you tend to only audio, library, or ebook please Sponsor a Stack for our Little Free Library for $10 or more then email us to let us know it's for the program

Email us a list of of the books you've read or share your Goodreads challenge link if you record it on there or a photo of it if you have a reading journal. Then you will receive an EXCLUSIVE READ IT! Program Button, official certificate of completion, and your very own personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut (gift certificate will be emailed). 

One grand prize winner will receive a Books Around the Corner Book Bundle with books, swag, and other bookish items mailed to them or if they are local they can pickup

By completing your reading goal you are automatically entered. Tag us @spookybookshop and #readitprogram in your stories and posts for extra entries. AND if you do any of the prompts for any of the months that's also a bonus entry!
