How does it work?

  2. Read as many books as you can between now and July 1st.  
  3. From July 1–12, tell us which book was your favorite and why (one entry per contestant).  That’s it!

What can you win?

  • Tablet of your choice goes to the grand prize winner selected by Bookshare judges ($350 value).
  • Gift cards for semifinalists who are selected by Bookshare judges ($50  value).

      Thanks for your questions. To start:

      1) Create a list of books you want to read. You can add them to your bookshelf or anyway you like.

      2) Download and read the books. (Books will be counted starting June 1 until the end of the contest, so make sure to download them during that period).

      3) Starting July 1, we will open the contest form, where you will submit just one entry about the book you liked the most.

      To make sure you get all of the contest updates, make sure to sign up for the notification list:

      Good luck!
