Read Pink this October

Penguin Group USA is once again supporting research about breast cancer. For the third year in a row, they are running a program called Read Pink. Penguin will make a donation of $25,000 (US $) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).

Additionally, Penguin will offer an assortment of 8 bestselling mass market titles and 6 trade titles by some of their most beloved female authors in a special Read Pink edition. The participating authors are: Jayne Ann Krentz, Nora Roberts, Catherine Anderson, Jodi Thomas, Carly Phillips, Madeline Hunter, JoAnn Ross, Jillian Hunter, Karen White, Natasha Solomons, Eleanor Brown, Wendy Wax, and Kathryn Stockett. These special editions feature Read Pink seals on the cover and additional information in the back of the book underlining Penguin's support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's mission and urging readers to become actively involved in supporting the organization.
For more information about the program, go here. The money is donated regardless of book sales. The books are a tool to help bring attention to breast cancer and to spread some information. These are the books that are part of the campaign:
