Confession time: our one year was technically December 4, but it slipped by unnoticed. I mean, I knew we launched in December last year, but had no clue which date it really was. I estimated the 14th, but I was off by ten days. But WHO CARES because we want to celebrate with a giveaway because its the holidays and Ashley and I both really love gift giving. And this is the easiest gift giving in history because we know you all like books!
Before I get to the deats, I’ll make you suffer through a little reflection. For me, this blogging thing has been addicting, frustrating and fun. Addicting because obviously is immensely satisfying when someone comments on your posts. Out in that big bad internet someone has taken the time to say something about what you’ve done. Everyone gets a kick out of that. Frustration comes in when you want to do something on the blog, but less fun life factors make it impossible for you to do so. Ashley and I took a dive this summer, but thankfully we’ve made it through mostly unscathed, just missing some fingers and toes. And fun is getting to read everyone else’s great posts out there in this bookish community. I love all of your passion, humor and wittiness. And you all have recommended some great books this last year. I’ve been turned on to some wonderful stand-alone and series now that I’m doing this blogging thing.
Which segues nicely (its like I planned that) into our giveaways! The inspiration for two of our giveaways is the great series we have read this year blogging. And I will be doing a secondary international (as long as Amazon ships to you) giveaway that is completely open up to $20. Here’s what we have in store for you lovely people:
