What’s This All About?
Read Diverse Books is running a Diverse Books Reading Challenge. Chasing Faerytails and Read.Sleep.Repeat decided to embrace the Reading Diverse Books challenge but also create a monthly theme. The theme for March is Disability and I wanted to host a give-away and award a prize to the top three people who manage to Read AND Review the most books that come under the Disability category

Who is eligible to participate in the give-away?
Unfortunately, due to the absurd shipping and handling fees, only those who live in Australia and New Zealand will be eligible for this competition (sorry about that).

Are there Prizes?
Well yes; it wouldn’t be much of a give-away without them. There will be a first, second and third prize for the top three people who manage to Read and Review as many books as possible within the month of March (so midnight 1st of March until 23:55 pm on the 31st of March)

What kind of prize will you be offering?
The prize will be a package of assorted Stim Toys (I’ll make a separate more detailed post about this later). The prizes will be theme orientated, for example: there will be a package of red stim toys, blue stim toys and green stim toys. At the end of March, I’ll contact the winners and notify them and get them to pick which colour-theme they’d prefer.

How or Where can I find Books about Disability?
Disability In Kidlit have put together a list of recommended reading, here’s the link for it:
Disability In Kidlit – Honor Roll
Chasing Faerytails and Read.Sleep.Repeat have put together an awesome book list as well, here’s the link for it:
Chasing Faerytails & Read.Sleep.Repeat: Diverse Reads 2017 Reading List

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon: Disability In Kidlit has published a review on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon (here’s the link to the book review) and due to the problematic nature of the book, I will be excluding this book from the competition. Should anyone ignore/defy this and post a link to their review on my give-away page, the link will be removed and they will be disqualified from the competition.

Shout-Out:
Kim is busy doing their own thing, but they were a big inspiration and assistance for this project, so I just wanted to send out a big thank you, readers should check out their links

Let The Reading Begin 😀

    This is such a great idea! I’d love to be able to participate, but I’m in Washington state, which is about as far away from Australia and New Zealand as you can get 😂

    Thanks for stopping by Writing on a Vintage Typewriter!

    Hi, I saw this posted on tumblr. I would love to review some books but I don’t read a whole lot these days. I am wondering if you might consider a different way of awarding prizes? Maybe one review could equal one entry into a raffle? That way no matter how many reviews we can do, lots of people would be motivated to contribute. I’ll try to contribute either way, that’s just my 5 cents. 🙂 Thanks very much for doing such a cool thing!

      Hey there,

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog, I really appreciate it :). Now, as for your question about a raffle method of awarding the prizes, my options via inlinkz are limited however there is a “pick a random winner” option. If I only receive a small number of participants, I may be more inclined to go with the random selection process, unfortunately it’s one of types of situations where I’ll have to wait for more information before I can move in one direction or the other. Thank you for stopping by though, I really appreaciate it 😀
