Thank you!

Thank you for all the support you've given the Climbing Rose Young Adult line of The Wild Rose Press. Our stories are still available on The Wild Rose Press website, however, since we aren't publishing new stories, our blog is no longer active. We thank you again for the time you spent with us and invite you to visit our Climbing Rose bookstore.


Read-a-Thon

This weekend is Dewey's 24-hour Read-a-thon. The semi-annual reading challenge that everyone can participate in at the same time. For 24 hours, people read books, blog about them, visit other readers' blogs, and participate in mini challenges.

The Read-a-thon was started by Dewey of "The Hidden Side of a Leaf" blog in 2007 and has quickly grown into a huge part of the book blogging community. Sadly, Dewey passed away in 2008 but the Read-a-thon continues. Want to join in? Click here to sign-up.

Want to participate but aren't ready to stay up for 24 hours? (Definitely not an option for me - my eyes came equipped with an automatic shut-off mechanism!) You can be a cheerleader and run a mini-challenge, or just visit participating blogs leaving comments and encouragement.

Some bloggers, like Princess Bookie, are running contests during the Read-a-thon and some bloggers, like Shelf Love, donate money to their favorite charities for each page or hour read. Click here to learn more about Reading for a Cause. And happy reading!
