Happy Birthday, Reading Women!
One year ago, we published our first episode. As part of our celebration, we're happy to introduce Reading Women Month! For the entire month of June, our birthday month, we'll be using the hashtag #ReadingWomenMonth to spread the word across all social media channels about books by or about women. Consider this your invitation to join the party!
Fun Photo-a-Day Challenge
Don't know which book by women to start with? We're here for you! All month, we're hosting a photo challenge over on Instagram and Litsy. Follow the day's prompt and share some of your favorite books by or about women using the hashtag #readingwomenmonth. Every so often, we'll choose participants to receive prizes, like free Reading Women swag or a book from our store!
A party is not a party without rad favors, so in honor of our birthday celebration, we're giving everyone a 15% discount at the Reading Women Bookstore. Additionally, we've partnered with Quarterlane, a quarterly book subscription service, who has graciously given our listeners and exclusive discount for 15% off your purchase with the promo code readingwomen15. You'll definitely want to head over to their website and check out this summer's amazing boxes.
Patron Party on Patreon
We're now on Patreon! We started the Reading Women podcast because we were tired of seeing excellent women writers skipped over for awards and denied recognition. Since our very first episode in June 2016, we've been thrilled to watch the Reading Women grow, reaching more and more people with recommendations for excellent literature by or about women. And this is all thanks to YOU!
The podcast will, of course, still be free, but if you'd like to support us further by helping cover the cost of hosting, equipment, and materials, this is the place! We've planned all sorts of extras for patrons—everything from sneak peeks of the latest episodes to personalized book recommendations sent right to your mailbox. We'll also use this platform to get feedback from our listeners, including upcoming themes and book picks. So have a look around, and thanks again for all of your bookish love and support!
We are simply blown away by the love and support the Reading Women community has shown us in the past year and we are looking forward to a new year of excellent reads. Let the partying begin!
