If you complete the Debut Novel Challenge, you’ll be entered for a Keep Calm and Read On Bookmark and the book of your choice from the next Random Reader Challenge.

Retail value of this prize is approximately $30.00



Frequently Anticipated Questions:

Q: I have already read and reviewed one of these books on my blog…can that count as my entry?

A: No, nice try. You must read and review one of the books during the challenge dates, July 1 - August 31.

Q: I live outside of Canada. Can I participate?

A: Yes! Of course, we welcome readers from around the world. However, for legal reasons, only Canadian residents excluding Quebec are eligible to win the prize.


Q: I don’t like this genre. Can I substitute another book instead?

A: Sorry, rules are rules. Part of this challenge series is to encourage you to break out of your comfort reading zone and try something new.

Q: What’s the next challenge going to be?

A: Sorry, that’s classified information.

Random Reader Challenge: Debut Novels runs from Sunday, July 1 to Friday, August 31 at 11:59pm EST. Open to Canadian residents, excluding Quebec. Winners will be chosen at random from the eligible entries.
