#BlackWomenRead

CONTEST TIME!


Hello everyone,

It seems that every time I post a picture of a Black women reading on my social media, it gets a ton of likes and a number of comments. I love seeing that. The problem is, I don’t see enough pictures on social media of Black women reading. 

And I’ve looked. 

I think within certain circles there are pictures, but in a general sense, there are not. We need to get #blackwomenread trending and we need to get pictures of Black women reading out on the web. So I’ve decided to do something to change that!

We are going to have a friendly, fun contest based on #blackwomenread. All you have to do is submit a picture of you reading to enter. That’s it. Of course there are a few rules:

  • The picture(s) must be of you. The reason being, I don’t want pictures submitted of someone else who may not want their picture shared. The ONLY exception will be bookclubs. If you want to submit a picture of your bookclub reading, that will be acceptable.
  • Be as creative, fun, free, sexy, and unique as you wish. 
  • Submit as many pictures as you wish before the deadline.
  • The deadline for submitting pictures is OCTOBER 11th

After October 11th, I will collectively post the pictures, and the pictures with the most “likes” will be the winner. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.  The first place winner can select three of the titles below. The second place winner can select two of the titles below, and the third place winner can select one of the following titles below. 

Note: the prizes will be the eBook versions. Some of these books have a future publication date but I did that so that we would have new books from which to choose. 

Good luck and have fun with this! If you have any questions please feel free to ask - rubiconreader@gmail.com
