Jolabokaflod in the USA

The world of Jolabokaflod is expanding.

We are in New York between 31 May and 4 June 2017 to introduce the Christmas book flood tradition to the US book trade and the North American literary world in general.

We are attending BookExpo America (the US book trade fair) and BookCon (the US authors’ convention) to talk about bringing Jolabokaflod to the USA, Canada and the rest of the continent and to collect book recommendations for our next online catalogue, which will be launched in June.

So many books, now is the time to read them.

Book Bulletin: Hall of Fame

bokati%e2%88%82indi-4-bathtimeWe are marking the start of the crowdfunding phase of the Book Bulletin campaign – to raise money for next year’s Jolabokaflod UK events and marketing – by adding two new features to the website. Here is the second of these new features.

Hall of Fame

We have add a new section – our Hall of Fame pages – to recognise the financial contributions of supporters of Jolabokaflod Book Campaign crowdfunding projects, including the Book Bulletin.

Anyone who purchases a reward valued as £10 or more gets their name, company and/or project details uploaded for display on these pages as our way of saying ‘Thank you’ by way of public recognition.

We value everyone’s contributions and, in return, we are delighted to support you and your companies/projects with links and digital media promotion.

The Futurebook Conference organised by The Bookseller magazine marks the close of the free phase for book recommendations for the Book Bulletin catalogue. Entries for the books you love or wish to promote are free until midnight on 2 December 2016.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far. You have helped to get the catalogue off to a rapid start out of the blocks.

From just after the stroke of midnight, the Book Bulletin project becomes a rewards-based crowdfunding campaign at CrowdPatch, to help fund events and promotion for Jolabokaflod UK in 2017. The 2016 campaign has been fully funded as an act of philanthropy by Christopher Norris, Founder and Curator of the Jolabokaflod Book Campaign.

Please contribute as generously as you can to promote books and your own personal and professional interests.
