Welcome to Utah Book Month 2014 and Our Read a Utah Book Challenge!

We're so excited to bring back Utah Book Month for the third year in a row! This month we hope you'll join us for special features, author and blogger interviews, mini challenges, giveaways, and many many reviews for Utah books. Be sure to check back often to see what's happening and to click over to the posts being featured each day. You can see the whole list of our planned posts here.

Today we are staring things off with our Read a Utah Book Challenge. We challenge you to read at least TWO books this month by Utah authors. We have a list here on the blog of authors to get you started. Or you can check out this Goodreads list, which, I must warn you, is not comprehensive at all! (Feel free to add to it if you wish!)

If you do read and review a book, we'd love for you to come back here and link up your review so we can all see the books being read this month! See the linky below. Sign up with your name and blog name and the book you're reviewing in parenthesis.

Also, be sure to follow @UtahBooks on Twitter for updates and conversation. At this point, we haven't planned a Twitter chat, but we can if there's interest.

Our annual blogger bash get together is also in the works. We plan to meet on Saturday, August 30 at the same park in Lehi (Wines Park) where we've been the past two years. More details to come, but for now, add it to your calendar!

Thanks for participating!


  1. I'm sad I'm the only one who's put up a linky. I want to read people's posts. :*(

  2. Oh, ha! I totally read it wrong. This is for reviews. Oops. Never mind the idiot in the corner.

  3. Hooray for Utah Book Month! Now I just need to write some reviews!
