Community,

I am pleased to announce March book prize winners:

Diversity Roll Call- Katy @ A Few More Pages

Quiz- Anishinaabekwe @ Anishinaabekwe

Recap on how to win books at Color Online
Participate in CORA Diversity Roll Call. Each month, we will draw a name randomly to win a book from our Prize Bucket. We run a new assignment roughly every two weeks, here or at Worducopia. Join us. It's fun and the exercise introduces participants to new reads and different perspectives on our reading habits.

Participate in Women Unbound. I'd love to see more women of color reviews. Join us. Once a month I draw a name.

The POC Challenge. Color Online is a sponsor. Post a link to your review of a POC title and you're entered.

Color Online Quiz. Every month we try to post four quizzes. Random monthly drawing.

Color Me Brown- Read and blog brown. I'm always looking and then sharing links to your reviews. Completely random. Do what you do and you might win a book.

Every week I post a query for Sunday Salon and we share what new books we have in our New Crayons post. Comment to Sunday Salon or write a New Crayons post on your blog and you'll be entered in a monthly drawing.

We are committed to connecting readers with great literature. If you want to donate books to schools or Color Online, check our contact page. When we get requests or I hear about a school/program looking for books, I send them.

If you don't have books, send me $1 stamps. We don't have a fund. We have you and me, a sister with more passion than cents.

I looked at the Prize Bucket and noticed a book about Tennessee, my state: A Page From a Tennessee Journal by Francine Thomas Howard. How about that one?

How do I send you my snail mail address? Oh, I see this email address under Contact Us: cora_litgroup AT yahoo DOT com

I'll send an email there. My email address is: emerging DOT paradigm AT yahoo DOT com

Thanks,
~~~ Bonnie
