A Gazillion Giveaways

I know I'm not the only one who feels guilty about clearing my blog feeder without actually reading all the new posts it announces. Actually, I don't know how to clear mine with 1 click, so I just spent an hour going through them. I admit I skimmed most, but my feeder is now clear. Yay! One thing I noticed in my perusing is that there are TONS of giveaways going on right now. I'm going to list the ones I've seen. If I missed yours, leave me a comment. There are so many chances to win, you better get on your horse and enter:

- Of course, you should enter my drawings for Blindness by Jose Saramago and FarWorld by J. Scott Savage. All the info is here.

- You can also enter to win Blindness over at Bookroomreview's blog. Check it out here.

- Booking Mama is holding a drawing for Hannah's Dream by Diane Hammond. Enter here.

- Since it's BAFAB week, Chris is offering a book from a selection of 12, including The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaimain! Check it out here.

- April is giving away a signed ARC of The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne DuPrau.

- Dewey is offering a free book (winner's choice), plus several more drawings of politically-themed books. Dewey also wants to spread the word about the upcoming 24-Hour Read-A-Thon. Get all the details here.

- 5MinutesforBooks is also giving away the politically-themed books here.

- 200 Books is holding a drawing for The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists by Gideon DeFoe. Get all the info here.

- Nymeth has A Fine and Private Place by Peter Beagle up for grabs.


A couple more things:
- If you're a Kate Jacobs fan (and I am), you'll be excited to know that a sequel to The Friday Night Knitting Club will be out on November 25. If you're interested in reading the first chapter, let me know and I'll hook you up!
- Kim L. gave me an I Heart Your Blog award. Thanks so much!
Have a great weekend, everybody. I'll be watching the LDS General Conference, going to my kids' school Harvest Festival and reading a spooky little book called Into the Woods by Lyn Gardner. I should have a review up on Monday. Catch y'all later!


  1. You are not the only one, Susan. I haven't had much of an opportunity to keep up with everyone the last couple of weeks and I've been feeling guilty about not being able to visit everyone. I've been skimming a lot lately too.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I feel guilty too, but it just can't be helped sometimes. If only days had 48 hours instead...

    Thanks for linking to my giveaway!


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
