LANA SHELTON LOWE, principal of Dogwood Elementary School!

I had quite a number of people responding to this month’s blog post…via Twitter, Linkedin, and Facebook, but unfortunately none of those people actually left their name in the comment section which was the requirement in order to have their name added to this month’s drawing. Because I received no actual names, this month I will donate June’s book bundle to one of my local elementary schools I work with. I’ll be sending Ms. Lowe a Facebook message letting her know I will be delivering her FREE books as I visit the school in August when the kids go back to school.

Thanks to everyone who participated in past PAY A BOOK FORWARD events! Make sure to come back on July 10th to see what’s in store for the next big giveaway!

In the meantime, share a little book love with a child in your world. Give them the first step into a magical, life-long love of reading!

WE HAVE A MARCH WINNER…Woot! Woot!

I’m so glad to be able to announce we have a winner for the March PAY A BOOK FORWARD book bundle giveaway! Woot! Woot!

This month’s event saw a 200% jump in participants which makes this book lover’s heart very happy! Word is getting out about the hundreds of books I will be giving away for FREE throughout 2021.

But there is still one area that need’s work.

No one is loading a picture of a book THEY are sharing with someone else so they can be entered in the monthly BONUS PRIZE giveaway. Most of the time it will be an autographed book from one of my published author friends, but sometimes it will be a collection of interesting books or other prizes. I’m mulling around what I will do with those wonderful BONUS PRIZES not being given away each month and might do one MEGA PRIZE GIVEAWAY at the end of the year. I’ll figure something out.

For now, put your hands together for March’s PAY A BOOK FORWARD winner…

MICHAEL RAMSEY of JOPPA ELEMENTARY!

I’ll be sending Michael a FB message so I can get his books in the mail to him hopefully this upcoming week.

Thanks to everyone who participated in this month’s PAY A BOOK FORWARD event! Make sure to come back on April 10th to see what’s in store for the next big giveaway!

In the meantime, share a little book love with a child in your world. Give them the first step into a magical, life-long love of reading!
