To all of our beloved bloggers,

We are so thrilled with your ongoing participation and support of our annual BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) and all of our authors and their books.  Over the years, you have helped us make our SRC what it is today. “BookSparks owns Summer Reading” (an actual quote from someone, which we love!) because of all your support and enthusiasm for these books we are working on. With that enthusiasm and with the popularity of the SRC growing year over year (now in our 6th year!), it is increasingly difficult to accommodate all the requests that come in from media, bloggers and our enthusiastic fans. We would love to provide free boxes and books to everyone who is interested (of course!). But, as the challenge has grown, we are limited to the number of books we get from the publishers. Unfortunately, that means there’s no way for us to accommodate everyone who wants publicity copies. We hope you know that we always do our best. And we do. But we also want you to know that we hope you will continue to support the SRC, and these incredible authors, even if you are not part of the lucky few who are able to get the limited publicity copies of the books. There are many ways to participate, enjoy and have fun with the SRC each year and many ways to support our incredible authors when doing so. Many readers do!

After signing up, if you are selected to receive the limited publicity copies that are available, you will be notified by May 16 by via email. Janay will be confirming your sign up and let you know if you will be receiving the #SRC2016 boxes and books. If you are selected, you will receive an email with a breakdown of what you can expect to receive and how to participate in the 2016 Summer Reading Challenge.

However, if you don’t get the email, please don’t be too upset. It’s out of our control and supplies are very limited. Please do not email Janay asking if your box is coming or how you can increase your changes. If you do not get free copies of the books, we still invite you to participate by supporting the authors and purchasing a copy of the books, checking out a copy from your local library, or requesting an eCopy on NetGalley just like hundreds of other readers do each summer. You can still read along with us all summer long and join in on all of the social media, contests, surprises, prizes and more! We hope you do because it’s a lot of fun! 

Ready to start reading? Sign up for the #SRC2016 by month: May, June, July, August.
