Cannonball Read IV - What Do You Want to Read Before the Apocalypse?

In a world… about to end… it is time for Pajibans everwhere to take up the banner of AlabamaPink and read, read, READ!

2012 Is right around the corner, and so is Pajiba’s fourth race to read and review 52 books in a year. Cannonball Read IV will officially begin on January 1, 2012. The lovely Tamatha Uhmelmahaye has passed the baton to me, and I will be coaching, cheering, guiding, and prodding you on to finish your reviews before the year (and the world?) ends.

Since the Cannonball Read’s beginnings as a wager between Prisco and AlabamaPink, over three hundred Pajibans have read and reviewed thousands of books. In honoring the memory of our beloved AlabamaPink the Reads have not only raised money for the college fund of her son, Lil A, but have encouraged reading in a very substantial way. The current Cannonball Read, number three, has over 150 participants, with review posts numbering well over 1500. I think ‘Pink would be pleased.

You too, can join in on the fun this time around. CBR4 continues the tradition of its predecessor in encouraging as many people to read as much as they possibly can, so we are keeping the levels of whole (52), half (26), and quarter (13) Cannonballs.

We continue again with a brand new group blog. This year, all Cannonballers must join the group blog. You may post your full review there, but at the least, you must post links to your reviews on the group blog. Several selected reviews will appear on Pajiba weekly. To sign up for Cannonball Read IV, visit our blog and complete the sign-up form. You’ll need to provide your Pajiba-handle, your real name, email address, blog address (if you have one), Twitter account (if you have one), and your goal. If you have a Twitter account that you’d like me to “mention” when I tweet links to your reviews, please provide that too. You can also follow our progress on Twitter.

What are you waiting for? Get a head start on completing your goal by reading and reviewing now. You have until the end of the world or December 31, 2012, whichever comes first.
