It’s been one month since we launched our #WeAreHuman Riveted Readathon! In support of the Robot Army and the #WeAreHuman campaign, Simon Pulse and Riveted teamed up with the It Gets Better Project to spread a message of awareness and acceptance in celebration of Simon Curtis’s debut YA novel, Boy Robot. In support of this mission, we’ll be donating $5,000 to the It Gets Better Project to help them bring a message of hope to LGBTQ youth. For our Readathon, we put up eight great free reads (plus an extended excerpt of Boy Robot), each featuring LGBTQ characters, and with your help, planned to DOUBLE our donation if we reached 5,000 total reads by 11/11.
Alas, we’re not quite there and the Readathon has come to an end! Many of you enjoyed the Readathon Reads, particularly Shaun David Hutchinson’s We Are the Ants, but we didn’t hit our goal of 5,000 reads.
However…we’re not ready to give up just yet! We’re going to EXTEND the Readathon for ONE MORE WEEK! If you’ve already been participating, read another book! If you haven’t, start now! Either way, tell your friends and spread the word, you’ve got until midnight (EST) of Friday, 11/18! Read free books and help us donate more money to a worthy cause!
