How many times have you participated in CBR? Has it changed the way you read? This is my first CBR. A friend (who has participated in the past) recommended you to me. The change in my reading is I found a few books I never would have read on my own. I may or may not have liked them, but I did enjoy the experience. I also want to read more so I can recommend LOTS more books (as books are a passion of mine…. it’s my only real addiction. And chocolate. And cake. And alligator wrestling). All the young adult and children’s […]

I’m so pleased to announce that we exceeded our fundraising goal of $1,500 in November with a final total of $1,651.65. We appreciate every donor who chipped in to support us, and want to acknowledge one particular anonymous donor who made an extremely generous $500 donation!

And without further ado, the winner of the 2018 #GivingTuesday prize raffle is[…]
We have reached the last pages of the last chapter of CBR10 Bingo. We still have a very exciting epilogue where we announce who wins which prizes in the Bingo raffle drawing.

After Thanksgiving, we had Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and now it’s #GivingTuesday. Today, we’re asking folks to chip in and donate to celebrate 10 years of Cannonball Read and more than 20,000 books read in honor of AlabamaPink. Our goal this year is to raise $1,500.00. As an incentive this year, all donors will be entered into a raffle! Every person who donates today or by the end of November will get one entry into the prize raffle drawing. One lucky donor will win this amazing book prize package valued at $200.
CBR10 Bingo ends at midnight EST November 30 – next Friday! As we near the end, and approach the raffle, it’s very important that I have correct tallies for all of you. Please check below and let me know if there is a discrepancy.
Book Exchange 2018 Sign-Up is now Closed. Keep an eye out for everyone’s gift posts and your assignment emails! The time has come to bring our Tenth Anniversary year to a close, what better excuse can there be for a Holiday Book Exchange? For the past several years we’ve had a completely voluntary Book Exchange and it is my pleasure to handle the organizational components for us again. It’s a lovely part of our community here at CBR and a great way to get to know a fellow Cannonballer a little bit better. It’s also a great excuse to share […]
