Getting started on the #readathon

I went to a girls sleepover with friends and then Halloween costume shopping with a friend. MUCH needed time away. I’m getting started reading and will read as much as I can tonight.

Congrats to Michael Watson, author of The Nestorian Alliance, who won the bid for a review. He bid a $100 to donate to Reading is Fundamental and made the donation so I’ll be reading his book TONIGHT and posting a review. He jumped ahead of the line. Thank you for your generosity, Mike!

In fact… I am going to offer to gift up to FIVE of his books (via Amazon) at my own expense as a thank you to him for playing my little game to any Kindle readers out there that are participating in the Read-a-thon that want to read it and post a review TONIGHT. The first five get it. The rules are you have to leave me your email address to gift it to (or email it to me at candytx@gmail.com after commenting here) and you have to post an Amazon review before 6am Eastern Sunday. Also, your review should be HONEST. If you liked it, great. If you hate it, well, that’s okay too. Again, only the first five. Below is a synopsis of his book from Amazon:

The location of Noah’s Ark has been one of history’s most intriguing mysteries. Believed to be on Mt. Ararat, it still eludes all seekers. The year is 1952 and a well worn amulet has been discovered in a collection at the Denver Museum of Natural History with etchings on it’s back indicating the true location of the Ark. Jack, a geologist/archeologist and avid Ark enthusiast, is made aware of the discovery and wastes no time in preparing for an immediate departure to Turkey with his two best friends and partners.

Through a network of agents, Joseph Stalin also learns about the discovery. He is determined to find the Ark first and destroy it. Stalin is still vengeful from being kicked out of seminary school many years earlier. Major Anna Petrova volunteers for the mission to Colorado with orders to retrieve the amulet at all cost.

The Nestorian Brotherhood has been protecting Noah’s Ark for centuries in a location known only to them and they will do anything to keep it safe and hidden. They are well prepared. The man in black is their first defense and possibly their last.

He doesn’t know I was going to do this… in fact, I just decided. Call it Read-a-thon delirium. Thanks, Mike. You were a gem! Let’s get you some reviews!
