by Freebies4Mom on June 24, 2010 9:34 am

Giveaway has ended, but there are more Giveaways to enter. Borders wants your kids to join the Double-Dog Dare Summer Reading Challenge to encourage reading over the summer.  And thanks to Borders sponsorship, I’m giving away a $100 Borders Gift Card to one lucky reader!

Double-Dog Dare Summer Reading Challenge

I dare you to encourage your kids (ages 12 and under) to read 10 books!  If they do they will receive a free book!  This summer reading program starts May 4 and ends August 26.  Just download the form, read 10 books, then take the completed form to Borders for your kids to pick out one of these 10 books as your free book.

Reading Tip

Thanks to Jon Scieszka, author of Robot Zot and Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka

“If you want to inspire your boy reader, expand your definition of reading to include non-fiction, graphic novels, funny books, wordless books, audio books and magazines. Summer reading is a great time to explore texts that aren’t covered/allowed in school reading.”

I am a devoted library user so if you can buy gift cards with gift cards, I’d probably buy smaller Borders gift cards to give to my children’s teachers and caregivers.


Deborah Horne June 30, 2010 at 1:49 pm

My son and I are avid readers. This would help with all the book sets he is reading in his accelerated reader program. Thanks!


Sharon I June 30, 2010 at 12:56 pm

I would spend the $100 on a nice assortment of summer reading for my kids, my husband and myself.


Kari B June 30, 2010 at 12:37 pm

Love reading books to my twins!


Yolanda June 30, 2010 at 12:33 pm

I would use the gift card to buy books for my son. He is turning 1 year old in 2 weeks!


Cecilia June 30, 2010 at 11:34 am

Books,a start on school supplies and a cup of coffee.


Lisa Peters June 30, 2010 at 11:05 am

I’m a licensed therapist and I would purchase some books to use with the kids I see in my office.


Victoria Hamel June 30, 2010 at 10:56 am

I love love love to read, so I’d be tempted to use the whole card on me. But since I love to read so much, I’d have to take the kids with and let them pick out a few books because it is so fun to see them get excited about books! So we’d get some Weird School Daze, Strawberry Shortcake and Spiderman books for the kids and then I’d tackle my wish list and pick up books by JR Ward, Karen Chance, and the three Chicagoland Vampire books.


Christy June 28, 2010 at 7:35 am

My 3 year old LOVES to be read to and he really enjoys making up his own stories to go along with photos in his books…he’d definitely get some more books for his shelf!


Mary Murchie June 27, 2010 at 11:01 pm

I would spend my gift card on a few books for me (the Elm Creek Quilt Series). Someone seems to have lost them and they are the last books in the series that my mom gave me. (If, after purchasing all of my other choices, I might even buy myself a new knitting book, or the patterns called A Box of Scraves.) Then I would get my husband a few books for the summer and finally my 3 daughters (agess 12, 5 and 3 1/2) some new books to enjoy. We love to read here and that would be so much fun to win a gift card to Borders!! Thanks for the chance.


BarronsMom June 27, 2010 at 7:49 pm

I feel like I own my own miniature Borders at home….I’ve got so many books! But, since this is our first child, I know I’d use the gift card to get books on parenting, sign language for babies and books for the baby as well.


Lane June 27, 2010 at 5:34 pm

My son is about to turn 5 and is starting to learn site words. I would spend this on books to jumpstart his reading skills!!


Destinee June 27, 2010 at 2:55 pm

I hope i win! I love Ellen Hopkins books and i need to complete my collection and this would be a wonderful way to do that!


gail June 27, 2010 at 2:25 pm

I would probably spend hours drifing through the store before deciding!


Natasha Dekle June 27, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I would give my gift card to Melaney at Books…for Keeps! so she can buy some of the books the children are asking for – Captain Underpants, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and Junie B Jones…

Check out Books…for Keeps! on FB or her blog:

for more information on her wonderful program!


Lori Craig June 27, 2010 at 2:20 pm

workbooks for my son


Kimberly June 27, 2010 at 1:49 pm

I would put this towards my daughter’s first A&M Corpus Christi college books!!!


Sharon M June 26, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Books for my 2 kids including the latest Where’s Waldo book as my 6 year old is a HUGE fan! 🙂


kim fisher June 26, 2010 at 2:23 pm

wow i wouldnt know where to start! I guess i would let my son take his pick first then buy other family members gifts with what is left


kari June 26, 2010 at 1:59 pm

I would buy a couple home decorating magazines for myself and lots of books for my little guy!


Tabathia B June 26, 2010 at 1:53 pm

I would get the 39 clues for my 9 yo, suzanne collins & melissa marr books & a few other ya titles for my teens and historical romance fiction & new book by lisa gardner for me


Nicole C. June 26, 2010 at 10:15 am

More books for my little one that his dad and I can read to him.


Lisa Bailey June 26, 2010 at 8:19 am

I would buy some books for my grandson for his birthday using coupons of course and I would also buy some books to donate to a shelter.
A child can never have too many books 🙂


Alejandra June 25, 2010 at 7:06 pm

There are 4 books on my “to read” list. I haven’t read a book for a few years now… except for children books to my kids. They are: “My Life Outside the Ring” by Terry Hogan, “25 Chickens and a Pig for a Bride” by Vangie Canonizado Buell, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” by Steve Harvey and “Stuff Every Woman Should Know” by Alana Kalb. I would have to at least get 2 of those. Then a Good Morning Maisy dvd for the baby and maybe some music for my 6yr old, 16yr old and my hubby. :}


Rhonda June 25, 2010 at 11:21 am

I would buy books for my “I can’t read enough” daughter, my “I need the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid” son , and “I can’t put it down” self…..and maybe a couple of cd’s to carry me through when I’m not reading.


Andrea June 25, 2010 at 10:51 am

More books !!!!


Michelle June 24, 2010 at 2:53 pm

We’d buy books for the whole family! Thanks for this giveaway!


Jessica June 24, 2010 at 2:11 pm

My grandmother is stuck in the hospital with a broken back, hip & arm so I would get her some audio books to keep her entertained when we can’t be there!


Kelly K June 24, 2010 at 10:57 am

My answer was:
I would love to pick up a couple new books by Dorothy Koomson for myself. I just ordered the first Looking Glass Wars book for my son so adding to them would be great too! I’d also like to get each of my 4 little cousins a new book since my Aunt is having them read for 15 minutes each day this summer. 4 books swapped between the 4 boys would help her out a lot!! Even better if I take them to pick them out themselves!


Anne Bender June 24, 2010 at 10:50 am

I have been wanting to get a nice lap desk. Oh, and I’m always up for more good books, maybe even a family tree organizer since I’m working on one right now.

Thanks for the holding this giveaway, Heather!


Amber G. June 24, 2010 at 10:34 am

I would use the gift card to get travel books for the summer.


Brandy Bates June 24, 2010 at 10:24 am

I would use it to buy new books for school. We home school and I really want the book on learning the French language. “French for Dummies” would be a great book for me.


Roslyn Hollandift certificate from Borders would be so Awsomae! June 24, 2010 at 10:24 am

I love to read! I am trying to get my 2 daughters to love books as much as I do. A g


Anissa June 24, 2010 at 10:01 am

Do the kids have to read them by themselves? My son can’t read yet but he loves books and we read to him all the time…
