Woo hoo!!!!I have officially hit the year three mark, as of June 9th I have been book blogging/reviewing/chatting/gushing for three years! THREE YEARS!!!
When I started blogging I had no idea it would one day lead me to:
Not one, not two, but three trips (so far!) to New York to the Book Expo!
I would not only make great friends who love books as much as I do – but in some cases I was able to meet them!
Writing reviews for a local magazine
Connecting with our local library
and stretch my reading palate to try books I never thought I would enjoy and found out in many cases I did! 😛
I can hardly remember what life was like before I started writing posts (this one by the way is number 2,192!)
For those of you who have come to my party last year or the year before, the basics are pretty much the same… to be entered for the great giveaways (pictured below), simply leave me a comment here telling me how you traveled to the party, and what virtual gift or food item you brought with you: For example, you may have rode a pogo stick to the party and brought with you jalapeno poppers laced with jumping beans… (really be as crazy as you want… I love the fun imaginative comments!) For a little bonus if you would like to share how long we have known each other (blog or otherwise) and if you are brand new to the house of Book Journey – feel free to share that too! I love new friends! 😀
My party will go for 24 hours so this post will go up at 12:01 am on June 15th (central time) and stay up until midnight. Every comment will be entered into the random drawings and winners (using random.org)will be announced here on Saturday morning.
Here is what I will draw winners for:
*Personal thank you to publishers who gave me copies of these books to give away for this event.
One more “bonus” side giveaway – you will see on my right sidebar that I have a Book Journey survey going on. This is a quick survey to help me analyze what you like or what brings you to Book Journey. If you would be so kind as to take a couple of minutes and fill out the survey for me, it will assist me to be a better blogger. 😀 This survey will be up for one week and then I will draw from the participants a winner for an Amazon gift card.
Thank you readers of Book Journey – You make me smile with your comments, nod in understanding, and occasionally I laugh (snort) out loud. I am so appreciative of all of you!!!
Let’s get this party started!!!! I hear knocking at the door… who could it be….
*opening the door – look of surprise!*
