Good morning! *yawn* How we all doing today? I missed the afternoon and evening of Bloggiesta yesterday as I was trying to get some errands done, then came home, changed and we had dinner with friends and then Hunger Games (yes, a second time!) and home around 11 pm. Then…. I slept a little later than usual but I am here now and I have exciting things happening here. 😀
About a month ago I was contacted about the book club I am in by a publishing company. They had read my Making Of A Book Club post and were bouncing ideas off me for a YA on line book club. I was happy to help as Sheila + talking books = Happy Sheila. 😀
We had some conversations back and forth where we discussed ideas, promoting, etc… and in the end she offered me some books as a thank you. I chose three from her list but she added to it and my very first mystery box of books arrived yesterday on my door step:
and in this group would be the very first April on Line Book Club pick:
Are you just LOVING that cover? I am!!! SO more on this hopefully going into this next week… I will give you info on the book club, the who, the what, the when…. I am just waiting on an email first to make sure they are ready to launch!
AND in honor of Bloggiesta happening right now this weekend (info below) I would love you to tell me which of these gorgeous books to read first and then I will read it and send it to one lucky random.org winner. Yes, you pick the book for the picture above, I read, then send to you.

1. A new blog header
2. New blog widget
