This year it was double the delight! Not only have HarperCollins Canada launched the 50 Book Pledge again, but they have also, with the help of John Caruso, launched a web app in which the reader can add books to shelves (read, and to-read) and even customize their pledge. I have opted to really go all out on it this year and selected their highest pledge of 200 books, each of which I'll be reviewing here on The Literary Word.
If you'd like to learn more about the 50 Book Pledge, you can check out the information for it at The Savvy Reader. There you'll find all the resources regarding ways to participate, including the twibbon site http://twibbon.com/support/50bookpledge-2013 where you can update your Facebook and Twitter profiles with the 2013 Pledge badge.
Also do check out the web app which can be located at http://www.50bookpledge.ca/ - (When I signed up there were only 6 of us, and at the writing of this post, that number has grown to 509 in less than 24 hours! It's great to see!)
If you are curious about my picks for the year, in addition to checking back at The Literary Word frequently, or subscribing so you'll be alerted when I post, you can also peek at my 50 Book Pledge profile here
If you sign up and would like to let me know where I can view your shelf (I'm always looking for ideas for my next read!) please leave a comment below or you can tweet me @theliteraryword. If you'd like to share it with others who have pledged, remember to add the hashtag #50BookPledge
That's enough typing for me. 200 books await....
