Books Are Great Gifts 2011Last Friday’s BOOKS ARE GREAT GIFTS #bagg auction  netted $725 in donations to our adopted beneficiary, Reader To Reader. We are grateful to the Twitter community for showing support for this annual campaign designed to boost book sales and raise funds for children’s literacy programs.

Special thanks go to all of the authors who donated books and showed up during auction hours to support the auction. Extra special thanks to author Keith Cronin who became the unofficial auction entertainer whose promos for his book Me Again made the #bagg feed worth following just to see what he’d say next. You can read the entire #bagg auction transcript here.

We hope you’ll support Reader To Reader with your year-end charitable donations. If you donate any amount to Reader To Reader through the month of December, just email your donation to receipt to twitchat@gmail.com and we’ll send you a free book. Donate here.
