Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway Challenge supports literacy

Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway challenge is currently underway. They've teamed up with Jon Scieszka and First Book to provide books to children in need. If you have a few moments, answer children's book trivia questions, support literacy in our nation and vote for the state(s) you think should receive 20,000 new books for kids. I played the game for a little while, answered 100 questions and got 61 right. (Guess I need to read a few more of Scieszka's books!) I could not locate information on when this challenge ends, but those that are interested should check out the website:

Several blogs are holding related contests and giving away a Cheerios prize pack consisting of books from Cheerios, Cheerios cereal and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble:
