**THIS CONTEST HAS BEEN REVISED, PLEASE RE-READ TO BE SURE OF CHANGES. 22 OCTOBER 2011**
What is it? A competition between family units to read the MOST books from October 2011 to October 2012.
Why? To honor the birth of The House of Kirk Blog…and because WE LOVE BOOKS!
Books are neat,
Books are good,
Not everybody reads them,
But everybody should.
