Reading Link-Up: An Open Book

An Open Book CatholicMomOn Wednesday, March 2, I’ll be reviving a reading linkup, and I’d love for you to join me!

#OpenBook will be a monthly link-up each first Wednesday of the month.

  • My post for linking will go up at 5:30 a.m. and remain open until midnight the following Tuesday. So, say life happens and your kids get sick, crunch time hits at work, or a deadline prevents you from finishing your post until Friday – no problem. Link when you can.
  • Post every month, every other month, or whenever you feel like. No commitment or regularity is required, although I’d love it if you’d join us each month.
  • The dates for the remainder of 2016 are: March 2, April 6, May 4, June 1, July 6, August 3, September 7, October 5, November 2, and December 7.
  • Content is flexible. Simply write about what you’re reading. You can make it personal or, as I plan to do, extend it to the whole family. Your post can be as simple as a few lines about the book or as in-depth as a 700-word review. That’s entirely up to you. You can even forego writing all together and record a video or simply post cover photos. Here’s what my first post (under another title) looked like.
  • You are welcome and encouraged to copy and use the custom graphic above, but it’s not mandatory.
  • Don’t have a blog? Share what you’re reading in the comments.
  • Invite your friends and fellow bloggers.

The rules are simple:

  1. Include a link back to this blog and/or CatholicMom.com somewhere in your post. (http://carolynastfalk.com/category/my-scribblers-heart-blog/ and http://catholicmom.com/)  Better yet, link to the week’s post. You can use the button image below, if you’d like.
  2. Link up your post.
  3. Use the hashtag #OpenBook on social media.
  4. Try to visit some of the other bloggers’ sites and see what they are reading. Let’s build a community and expand our reading horizons.

If like I do, you have a tendency to forget, sign up to receive a reminder email one week in advance of each 1st Wednesday of the month.

Any questions? Comment in this post or email me at castfalk at verizon dot net.
