When AlabamaPink and Prisco started their first reading challenge back in 2008, they didn’t envision that their duel would result in this wonderful community. Our collection of book lovers is a friendly, supportive, and dedicated group, with supporters and volunteers spread around the globe. (Worldwide? you ask. Yep, it’s true! Check out our participant map to find out where Cannonballers are located this year.)
We’re eternally grateful for the support of donors and friends of the site. Find out how you can donate to support our cause of sticking it to cancer, one book at a time.
A special thanks to sabian30 and Bothari43, who both made donations this year on behalf of their family in memory of their friend Shirley Herndon, who passed away in February at the age of 89. An avid reader, Shirley was a big fan of Bothari43’s work on our newsletter.
“Shirley introduced Dad to Lois McMaster Bujold, back when I was still in middle school! Our lives would all be very different without her. She was a huge reader, and when she decided she was too old and frail to hold an actual book, she became devoted to her Kindle.” –Bothari43
