book giveaway

One of the passions I wanted to share when I decided to start this blog was the one I have for reading.

I included a recommended reading list as one of my pages and I planned to talk about books and book groups often.  But, that wasn’t enough.  I wanted to come up with a special way to share my reading adventures.  So, I decided to give away a book each month!   I  attend author appearances whenever I can… in Connecticut, New York, or Pennsylvania…sometimes for books I may not even read or like.  As you know, this was the case when I attended the appearance of E.L. James (author of Fifty Shades of Grey – click here to see )

How will I choose the recipient?  I will count each ‘like’ to Facebook or follow to my blog, instagram, or twitter as a ‘chance’ to win.  If you are already a follower on facebook and twitter, a comment on a post will qualify.  Each different post you comment on will qualify as a  ‘chance.’  At the end of the last day of the month, I will choose the winner, completely at random, from the pool of  ‘chances’ accumulated during that month.  Good luck and happy reading!
