THIS IS A STICKY NOTE! This post will remain on top until Sunday, July 15. Please scroll down for current posts. Thank you.
... and I nearly missed it! If you aren't familiar with Buy A Friend a Book Week, it's a great opportunity to promote reading and build good karma by buying a friend a book. For the long version, go here.
What with being SO busy getting ready for vacation last week and then BEING on vacation this week, I was about to let one of my favorite events get right away from me. SOOOOO.. better late than never, right? And, because I'm such a sweet, wonderful blogfriend, I'm going to take it upon myself to extend BAFABW for an additional week (also, because with BAFABW coming on a holiday week, a lot of people are away and I want everyone to get a chance to play).
I normally do two things during this time. One, I literally buy a friend a book. So far this year, Lianne and Marianne have been surprised with a book for no good reason. Who will be the lucky recipient this time? That would be telling! So.... until it happens, you'll have to wait. Two, I have a contest. And, this time is no exception. All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post. I'm asking you do one thing special this time. In your comment, tell me what you think my next "must read" book should be and why. That's it. One name will be randomly drawn and will receive their choice of book (up to a $20 value) from Amazon. For my international readers, I'll send you a $20 gift certificate from Amazon.
Now.. get busy commenting. I'm looking forward to getting some great ideas for summer reads!
Also, go by Karen's and Marianne's sites to enter their contests.
