Hello September, so long hot, blazing days of summer. As the days go from roaring fire to to a much more manageable blaze, the kids are now in school during the day. YAY!!!!!
I still find myself with way to many books that I want to read and not enough time to accomplish this daunting feat. I need to find a better balance. I keep telling myself to limit the amount of tours that I take part in and then I'd have more time to read the books that I've bought. The problem is that I'm a book addict and these tours are like crack to me. Why? They offer me a free book to read and most of them offer you guys a giveaway too. How can I say no? I start out trying to limit it to every other day but then an invitation will come that I can't pass up, and another and another. You get the point. This is both good and bad.
I'll get will power somehow. Hopefully soon!
Here are some of the giveaway results:
The winner of the Summer Romance Hop was Lennette D. she chose The Marriage Trap by Jennifer Probst.
The winner of the Clear My Shelf Giveaway was Ruth and she chose Fashionably Late by Beth Kendrick.
I'm thinking about doing a Mythical Monster Mash Challenge closer to Halloween. This will be similar to my Alpha Arcade that is held in the Spring. The difference and possibly the more challenging part will be that it will include all different supes, weres and shifters, vamps, witches. etc... You get the idea, anything goes.
What do you think, would you be up for a challenge of this magnitude or should I limit the monsters?
Thank you again to Miki and Amber my co-hosts all during the summer months while I was away or otherwise preoccupied with my boys. You two are invaluable to me and I can't begin to say how much I appreciate you both. :-)
Later this month, I'll be hosting the Reads and Feeds post. It will be a compiltion of my vacation highlights, some of our favorite camp grub, and some of the books that I managed to read while there. I am excited to share with you and I hope you will enjoy it. :-)
Oh and I should mention that I've added to new entries to the CIG (Comment Incentive Giveaway).
One is worth 5 entries and is for people new to the giveaway. First timers only or you will be deleted!
If you want to know more about the CIG, you can find out all of the details Here.
The second is for you repeat performers. It is worth 10 entries. All you have to do is refer someone to the giveaway. If they enter, you get 10 extra entries! You won't be able to tell if they entered, but I will. :-) If they don't, no big deal, I'll delete the entry and you can try and temp someone else. If they do, your entry will remain and you'll get the extra points.
There were only eight people who entered last month. That's pretty sad. You only have to comment once during the whole month to enter. Is it that difficult? Any other suggestions?
Oh well either way, I'm more than thankful for those of you who take the time to talk with me and this Incentive was created for that reason. I still hope to have more people comment but if they don't it's their loss, right?
Miki and Amber, unless you've come up with a better idea, do you want to share links for other giveaways on this post again? You can quit at any time if it is too much hassle! I admit that I missed most of them last month due to being at camp. :-(
And now, here is the giveaway form:
