105 Ways to Give a Book

The Fourth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge Final Post

First, prizes! I have books for participants selected with the Random Integer Generator. Participants had to complete twelve hours of reading/blogging/networking to be eligible for prizes. In the order drawn, the winners are:
Prize winners, please write me at MotherReader AT gmail DOT com with your address, and the types of book you’d be interested in receiving. I’ll do my best to accommodate. (I have some middle-grade books that can be personalized, and signed picture books, middle grade, Young Adult, and adult books. The post of potential prizes may be helpful.)

What an amazing year for the 48 Hour Book Challenge. We had 112 people complete the challenge. These are the sixty blogs that showed totals of twenty hours or more:
Many bloggers also connected their personal readathons with a cause. Here’s a list of Blogging for The Greater Good:
Visit the blogs above for more information about their specific causes. And bloggers above, feel free to correct me if I’ve made mistakes in listing your information.

Andromeda from A Wrung Sponge volunteered to give a framed photo with original haiku to the blogger who collected the most money, and she is Karen Healey, with $1,000 given to the Alannah and Madeline Foundation. Great job!

Thanks to all the authors and bloggers who contributed prizes, with a special thanks to Rasco from RIF, who is going to round up three more trophies! Thanks to all of the bloggers who mentioned, tweeted about, and otherwise promoted the 48 Hour Book Challenge. We would have never had such a fantastic turnout without your help. Thanks to the bloggers who supported a cause — and supported each other in raising money.

Of course, thanks to all of you who participated and made this such a special, amazing, fabulous event! Rock n’ Read!
