*yawn* * Stretch*
I am up and not quite ready to go but feel good… and am up at least 😀
Yes… it is that yearly event today. Another birthday and I have a fun story and a giveaway for you!
Here’s the story….
Right before Christmas I made a wish list of books I was hoping to someday own…. on that list was the book Miss Peregrine’s School For Peculiar Children. See exhibit A:
I have liked the reviews I have read on this book, it sounds mysterious…. and I would like to read it… so put it on the list. THEN….
I signed up for a couple of the Secret Santa sign ups on line and when my first one came guess what was in the package? That’s right…. SSSQQQUUUEEEE!!!! The book!
I was so excited and added it to the To Be Read pile! And then a package came from a publishing company….
Well… that’s just funny! So I put that on the TBR pile as well to offer a giveaway along with my reading of this book.
Then a bookish friend sent me a gift for Christmas…. She is so sweet…. what could it be?
Yup. NO kidding…. a third copy of this beautiful hard cover book. I couldn’t even believe it myself. I had taken the title off my wishlist previously but somewhere somehow….. the book just kept coming! 😛
So when me second secret santa package arrived I was curious but I waited until Christmas to open it…. and
(oh you already know….)
TRUE story! 4 copies of the same book in a matter of a two-week time frame. So yea, I have 4 copies of this book that I still need to read. 😀
Today – I want to have a giveaway to celebrate my birthday! I will choose the winner(s) Sunday morning here. One random commenter will receive a copy of this book (I know you are surprised…. you thought it would be something else….. LOL) and one winner will win a $10 Amazon gift card.
All you have to do is leave a comment here… 😀
I will have another giveaway later today.
SO what do I have going on today? Work for one… and a birthday lunch… and then later I am going to a wine tasting with a couple of friends for charity. That’s my day. I leave you now with a song that I LOVE and I am going to probably dance in my house while I get ready for work. 😛
Oh and a special thank you to my BEA roomy and book pal Care from Care’s Online Book Club who sent me a sweet card in the mail. You rock Care! Your card made me SMILE. 😀
