Last year was the tenth anniversary of Cannonball Read, commemorating the first CBR where Prisco challenged AlabamaPink, a fellow Pajiban who was fighting leukemia, to read 100 books in a year. These days you can read pretty much anything: graphic novels, children’s books, cookbooks, self-help books, fiction, non-fiction, romance, speculative fiction, you name it. You just have to be able to write at least 250 words about it.
In 2018, Cannonball Read donated $1,625 to the American Cancer society, bringing our total donations to $4,625! Thanks to everyone who donated! Not only did we have our most successful donation year ever, Cannonballers reviewed 4,390 books – that’s 1.5 million pages read!
Check out the wrap-up post on Pajiba to see the final standings and a review of CBR10 highlights. There’s still time to register for CBR11, and help us continue on our journey to stick it to cancer, one book at a time.
