Utah Book Month Starts Today!

A few of us book bloggers here in Utah decided a few months back that we needed to celebrate all Utah bookish things. This was something we had tried a little over a year ago and we thought it was time to bring it back. Finally, that time has come!

The purpose of Utah Book Month is three-fold:

1. To celebrate and highlight all the wonderful authors we have here.
2. To celebrate and highlight all the wonderful book bloggers we have here.
3. To read and review as many Utah books as we can!

So during this month we'll have several Utah bloggers interviewing other Utah bloggers. We'll have several Utah bloggers interviewing Utah authors, and we'll have all sorts of bloggers reading and reviewing Utah books.

For everyone, we'll have several mini challenges featuring Utah books, scattered on different blogs throughout the month. Be sure to stay tuned to our Twitter feed (@UtahBooks and #UtahBooks) for information as these challenges get posted. (I'll have mine... Utah Books Quote Quiz... up on Friday!)

We also have a central blog to keep track of all the events... interviews and challenges... as they are posted.

For those participating, there'll be a grand prize! Also, several blogs will be hosting their own giveaways during the month! Be sure enter them all!

Whew. So much going on. I hope you'll all have fun with it!


  1. Thanks for all the hard work you and the other hosts have put into this! I think this will be a fun month! I'm excited anyway. :D

    1. Kami: Thanks! And thanks for participating!

  3. Definitely, thanks to you and everyone else for putting this together! I love the mini challenges, so I'll for sure be back on Friday. Maybe I'll have to brush up on some goodreads quotes for Utah author books... :)

    1. Kathy: I'm really hoping I picked random enough quotes that they can't be searched! BUT... not so random that they can't be figured out. Tricky tricky.

  4. I'm excited for all this great stuff going on this month! I'll even be in town for one of Shannon Hale's events, so yeah!

  5. I wasn't going to participate in any challenges but some of them look awfully fun. We'll see how the month goes, I suppose.

  6. Ah. You explained this so much better than I did! I'm excited for the whole month.
