It’s that time of year again – time to celebrate phenomenal fiction! Orange July is here!
What’s Orange July?
Orange July (and its sister month, January) are biannual events where people around the world commit to read at least one Orange Prize for Fiction winner or nominee. That’s it – just one book!
There are hundreds of books to choose from. Click on these links below to see eligible books:
You can also learn more about Orange books on the Orange Prize Project. This blog contains readers’ reviews of Orange Prize winners and nominees. And while you’re there, consider posting your own reviews to the blog!
And if you blog about Orange July 2012, please use the shiny new Orange July 2012 badge – posted on the top right of this blog post. Thanks for your help in spreading the word!
Orange July 2012 Giveaways
As part of the Orange July festivities, I will be hosting giveaways on my blog throughout July. I have more than 20 books to give away, including the entire 2012 short list! Giveaways will be open to everyone – no matter where you live – and you can enter to win more than once. I will post the giveaway books and rules/tips on a later blog post – be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss this big announcement!

Facebook and LibraryThing
Enhance your Orange July experience by participating on our Facebook page and LibraryThing group. While this is not a requirement for Orange July, most participants have fun discussing books and getting to know each other through these sites.
How do I sign up for Orange July 2012?
For this Orange July, I am requesting all participants sign up using the Mr. Linky widget below. Click on the Mr. Linky graphic to add your name and link.
