Summer Book Trek 2016 Final Wrap Up

August 3, 2016 | 0 Comments

SBT-thank-youJuly is always fun for me. The Summer Book Trek is one of my favorite things I do on this site! It has really grown this year.

Thank you again to all the authors and publishers who donated their books as prizes for the challenge. Make sure you get those winners contacted and prizes sent. Let me know if there are any problems and I’ll help troubleshoot.

And thank you to all the readers who helped spread the word and participated with gusto! I hope you had as much fun as I did!

But we’re wrapping up (the final winners were notified yesterday) and there are only a few more things we need to do to call it done.


End of Trek Survey

I’ve created two surveys. Your feedback would really help me make a few decisions regarding future Treks and similar challenges. They should only take a few minutes to complete.

Readers, take this survey:
