Vote for Books!

Go to First Book and vote! before September 30th!

Of course, I would love for you to vote for West Virginia, but that's OK, just so you vote.
You can go back and vote every day.
The state that wins will receive 50,000 new books for children in need.
What a wonderful program, putting books into the hands of children who may not otherwise get one.

Spread the word. Tell your friends to go vote.

West Virginia is currently (at the moment I'm typing this) in 4th place.
They ask you to type in the book that got you hooked on reading.
After you go over and vote, come back here and tell us what book got you hooked.

I remember getting hooked in Jr. High School when I read Christy by Catherine Marshall.

So, what book got you hooked on reading?


  1. What a wonderful contest! I got hooked on the Laura Ingles Wilder series.

  2. What a fantastic contest! I got hooked on fairy tales. As a little girl, I loved to read all those wonderful stories about fairies.

  3. I'm so happy you've posted this! Great idea. I am now a follower and posted a link to you on my blog. Love your blog! I got hooked on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Hmmm...chocolate waterfalls...
