Prizes

You can read ahead of schedule, but prizes won’t be available until their release date. If you miss a week, you can collect it the next time.

For example, if you come in July 6, and haven’t gotten any prizes yet, you can pick up prize number 1 and 2.  If you’ve read past that point, and are ready for prize 3, you’ll have to wait until July 19 to get that next prize.

Prizes will be available any time after their first availability date until July 31, while supplies last.

NO PRIZES AFTER JULY 31
