You could win one of five Prize Packs! When you first register for the program, tell us which Reading Prize Packs you are interested in winning.

From there, you can edit any of your registration information, including which Prize Packs you would like to win.
The raffle is weighted by the number of hours you read. Each hour that you log counts as one "chance" in the raffle. The more hours that you log, the greater your chances are of being a Prize Pack winner.
