Holiday #Readathon Mini Challenge: Music Is For Readers

Contest is CLOSED.

The Winner is Joli at Acting Up With Books!

Hey all, when Liza at WhoRuBlog asked me to host a minichallenge for her annual Holiday Readathon, I totally COULD NOT say no, because I love readathons and I love challenges.

December Readathon

Holiday Readathon

Here is your mission should you accept it:

Create a 5 song playlist pertaining to a book you are reading for the readathon. You can do this in a post just leave me a link in the comments, or just leave me your playlist in the comments.

I’m doing this for my own selfish reasons — to find NEW music. HOWEVER, I will reward you for your efforts. One entrant will be randomly selected to win a prize pack of three 2012 ARCs!

The Prize:



1 ARC of Black Boy, White School by Brian F. Walker

1 ARC of Lovetorn by Kavita Daswani

1 ARC of Forbidden by Syrie James and Ryan M. James

The Terms:

This contest is open internationally, because tis the season to GIVE! I will draw a winner December 5th using from the comments.

Good luck!
