2016 MGR Reading Challenge: Check In and Wrap Up

Calling all Mocha Girl Read Reading Challenge Participants!

Did you sign up around the beginning of 2016 to do the 2016 Mocha Girls Read reading challenge?

How did you do?  We had 3 challenges for you to pick from and levels too.  So let take this minute to remind you of the challenge that was set before you.

  1.  You can pick SPELL IT OUT CHALLENGE.  The idea is to have fun reading books with titles that will spell out “MOCHA GIRLS 16” by the end of the year.  That is a total of 12 books.
  2. You can pick the BOOK OF THE MONTH CHALLENGE.  The easier one is to read all the books selected for the book of the month.  That will be a total of 12 books.
  3. There is one more for you to select the CHAPTER CHALLENGE.  You can read one book set in the cities or state Mocha Girls Read calls home.  Total of 4 books.

Now that you have your memory refreshed it’s time to put down what you read and how you did on the challenge.  If you completed what you signed up for, go the comment section below and let us know the title of the books you read.  Books must have been reading from January 2016 and completed by December 31, 2016.

Once you have done that click the entry button so you will be eligible for the $30.00 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway.  We are also going to select two other winners to get a mystery box of books.

You have until 1/7/ 2017 to get your books submitted.

Good Luck!

P.S. New 2017 Mocha Girl Read reading challenge coming 12/27/2016.
