I don’t know about you, but I definitely need a diversion at the moment, so let’s do as we always do—turn to books. Specifically, the beach read. You know the ones, the rereads or new reads that don’t require much effort to pay attention to, the ones that you can pick up and put down as you nap (or drink) by the pool or shore.

I’m happy to announce that we’ve made our first donation of the year to the American Cancer Society, and that brings the grand total of our donations to the American Cancer Society to $10,000! Thank you to all of the participants, donors, volunteers, and friends who have helped reach this amazing milestone. We’ve got some great stuff planned for the year, so please consider supporting us today financially if you’re able. You can do so via PayPal or Venmo.
The final standings for last year’s Cannonball Read 13 are posted over at pajiba.com. Find out how many reviews were written for CBR13 (hint: it’s a record!), who the Top 10 Reviewers of 2021 were, what our top 14 most reviewed books last year were, and more.
We received a lovely thank you note from our contact at the American Cancer Society, thanking us for our donations last year. Thanks to two matching donations at the end of the year, Cannonball Read donated $1,080 to ACS in 2021, which brings our total donation to ACS to $9,655. Please consider making a donation to support us this year in our mission to stick it to cancer, one book at a time.

I’m so pleased to tell you that due to an end of year fundraising push, we were able to donate an additional $240.00 to the American Cancer Society. They had a matching grant at the time, so our donation dollars were doubled! And with Bothari43’s donation in December being doubled by her employer, Cannonball Read’s donations to ACS this year came to $1080. That brings our total donations to $9,655. We at Cannonball Read are so grateful for all of our supporters and participants, […]
