Happy 2 Years Passionate Readers

While I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook, one of the features I do love is the memories that it reminds me of. Often they are funny things my kids said or simply looking at their faces from when they were younger. But today, this popped up…

A memory unlike many other – the birthday of my book, Passionate Readers, and probably one of the most nerve-racking moments professionally that I have ever had. After all, who knew whether this book which I poured my heart into, this book which my students were a part of as always, this book with its plea to continue to do the work that so many have done before me to create meaningful reading opportunities for all kids no matter their reading journey, was simply going to be worth anyone’s time?

Now, two years later, and looking back it is still incredible when someone tells me they have read the book. Especially when they are not related to me. That the ideas in it helped them support the work they were already doing, that it has helped others navigate the journey we all walk, and that it has helped me continue to learn more about the wonderful world of reading. I am so grateful.

So in order to celebrate the birthday, I would like to select two recipients to receive a copy of the book – either the Audible version or the print version. All you have to do is fill out this form and I will select two winners randomly Tuesday, August 27th. This contest is open to the world.

Thank you to all who found the book helpful, who have been a part of the Facebook group who have been a part of the book studies, the conversations, the work that has surrounded this book and its hope for all kids to feel that reading has some sort of value to them.

Fill in this form to enter to win.

  1. I’m happy to tell you that I find myself this morning with your book in my bag. I ordered it and received it over the weekend, so it’s on my immediate reading list. I’m really looking forward to reading it and being inspired by it. Happy birthday!
