Five Days of Christmas Giveaway! (#5!) International!

To your left, that is my dear bunny Edgar. That year, that bunny attacked our Christmas tree like no one's business. He chewed it, tried to dig under it (our tree skirt and carpet suffered so) and hid beneath it.
He's sadly no longer with us, but I'm sure that wherever he is, he wishes you a Happy Holidays.

And here we are....
The last one.
The good one.
The best one.

Thank you to all my readers all year round. Words cannot describe how thankful I am that you bother to come here, read my reviews and leave comments. Really. I'm very grateful and happily surprised I have you as followers.
Thank you so much!

And here is the last giveaway for the year.
And probably my last post for the year as well. We'll see. Depends on how much eggnog I drink....

TBR Reading Challenge! 2013

This is it! This is the year I'm going to make a serious dent in my physical books!
No, for real. I'm not lying at all.
Not even just a little bit.

Thank you to Bookish who is hosting this challenge! And to all the other awesome bloggers who are hosting the monthly challenges and roundups!

eBook Challenge! 2013

In another effort to see my ever growing digital tbr pile shrink, I've signed up again for the eBook Challenge! 

Hosted by Workadayreads.

I'm really hoping to get through a good number of ebooks this year, even more than last year. Even though they're not physical books, I really want 2013 to be a catch up year, both for digital and physical books. 

Debut Author Challenge 2013!

Here it is!

I am participating in the Debut Author Challenge 2013!

I had a really great time in 2012 and look forward to another year of wonderful new authors!

Thanks to Hobbitsies for hosting this challenge!
There's still time! You can sign up too. Just click the link above.

Happy Reading!

The Five Days of Christmas Giveaway! (#1)

Hi Everyone!

During the holidays, I carefully research all of my friends and family, covert operations style, and try to come up with some nice gifts for them! (See my post on holiday buying gift guide for some ideas for that special book lover in your life!)

That said, I rarely find time to shop for myself during this period. I try really hard to not buy items for myself when I'm shopping for others. This is more or less successful given the store and mood I'm in. (Barnes and Nobles on a rainy day and I'm a sucker.)

So, I'm doing a slew of giveaways on my blog during this holiday season (five actually) for all of you out there who have to buy Christmas presents and don't have any money left over to treat yourselves!

The giveaways will pop up anytime from now until December 25th and will all end on December 25th! So check back often because one giveaway may only be for 24 hours! (just saying) Please note that the books will not be sent out until after the holiday season.
US residents only please.

And on the first day of giveaway, blogger friend sent to me...
