So when hubby came back in to the living room huffing and puffing carrying a gigantic box my eyes nearly popped out of its sockets at the view of 50+ books.
The thing was, someone – who I off and on e-mail with – told me she cleaned her bookshelves and quote; I am writing to you to ask...would you like to have them? … And throwing them away with old papers is out of question (too valuable to waste, don't you think?). So it seems that you and your reading pals are my only hope. Will you be so kind to help me? Well, how could I say no to that?? This is when an idea popped in to my head; A Book Giveaway To Celebrate Romance. The person who donated the books, I dubbed her the Book-Faery, instantly liked the idea of sharing the love with all the peeps visiting my blog *waves at Book-Faery who is one of them* So in the early days of April I’m having a 20+ book giveaway; SPRING-FLING; Celebrating The Romance.
I hope to have a little more in store then just this giveaway but I’ll keep you all posted. There are two reasons it is being held in April, first of all; who is tired of the snow, the cold and layers upon layers of clothing? Raise your hand. I am in desperate need for some milder weather and sunshine, I want lots of sunshine in fact! So I thought spring would be a wonderful time to celebrate romance :) The second and most important reason is that Cecile from All I Want And More is having the par-tay of the year!! The whole month of March she has incredible events, giveaways, excerpts, prizes and authors dropping by, I mean it is smutty-hussy heaven for all of us and I am going to be there daily!
Though much of my Spring-Fling is just in the early stages do you all want a sneak peek at what will be included in the 20+ book giveaway? No? Really? ROFL, just kidding *wink* I’ve got books of Ava Gray, Shayla Black, Anna Windsor, Jacquelyn Frank, Leslie Parrish, Victoria Dahl and more.
The second surprise was the fact that AmyC told me she was going to have a copy of Shalador’s Lady personally signed for me by Anne Bishop *fan scream* it is perhaps uber geeky but I have a small shelf of signed books and while all my books are ‘my precious’ these are treasured even more! So thank you AmyC for totally making my week!! The third angelic offer came from Donna (fantasydreamer) as I was muttering about how Book Depository Store was bailing out on me with the delivery of Nalini Singh’s ARCHANGEL’S KISS. I hungered for some Raphael and Elena, and it was already two weeks after release day :( I sent BookDepo an e-mail and they stated they had a release of early march and shipping can take up to 2-3 weeks. So I was muttering on Twitter where my Dutch Border or Barnes & Noble was, when out of the blue Donna offered to ship me a copy. I still can’t believe you did this Donna but right now, as we speak, I am ripping open your package and a shiny copy of ARCHANGEL’S KISS is in my hand *sparkling eyes; “My Precious.”*
Looking back at this week I feel gratitude to know such people whose gestures really brightened my day. (((hugs all))) and all of the peeps I enjoy many a convo with in blogoverse or on twitter :)
On top of all the good things I’ve also been given some awards and want to thank each and every one who gave me one!!
