Prizes may include:
- Either John Green will take you to the next year’s YA Prom or Hank Green will devote his Brotherhood 2.0 video to the topic of your choice, after conferring with you by phone. It depends on who you have on your “list.”
- Grace Lin, having used the names of all her family members in books, will name her next character after you. There will also be a doll. And cupcakes.
- Roger, of Read Roger, will talk about your win on his blog using the words “stoked” and “mega-tastic.” If you clock in more than thirty hours or fifteen books, he will also use either the phrase “true dat” or “that’s how I roll.”
- Mo Willems will send something from this picture. It will probably be a signed Pigeon mobile, but it could be an Emmy. You never know.
- Betsy will send the original Winnie the Pooh to your home for a week-long visit, with a travel journal and possible police escort.
Let me also reiterate that the goal is to read for as much of the 48 hours as you can. Don’t feel that you can’t participate because you have something else you have to do during the weekend. You can do your 48 hours starting Friday and ending Sunday or starting Saturday and ending Monday morning, allowing for some flexibility. If you have something Saturday afternoon like me you can take a break and come back to the contest. You can always make up the time by not sleeping that night. I mean, really, how long has it been since you pulled an all-nighter?
