What Book Got You Hooked?

We asked and you answered! After launching this year’s What Book Got You Hooked? campaign, we’ve already received great quotes, memories and books that hooked you, making you a reader for life. Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie, Ethel Glere Chamberlin’s Shoes and Ships and Sealing Wax and Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who are just a few of the titles mentioned by you as you recalled the memorable books that got you hooked on reading.

But don’t stop there! We still have a few milestones to pass before meeting our goal of $100,000 by the end of August, and we need your help.


Your donation of just $20 will make 10 books available for the 50,000 book giveaway to be awarded to the winning state of the What Book Got You Hooked? voting contest that will take place later this summer.


So think back to the stories you read over and over again or the first book you just couldn’t put down. Remember the sense of accomplishment, the thrill, the feeling of pure bliss when the last page was turned.


Won’t you help make that feeling a reality for the millions of children waiting for their first book? Join the What Book Got You Hooked? movement today by making a donation…no matter how big or small.


All my best,
