3 Year Blogversary/Spring Cleaning Book Giveaway Hop


Three years ago today I restarted my blog and I have kept it up regularly since then (and for me that is a major miracle).  I will admit at times in the last year I have thought of giving up, but then the bug bites again and I go right back at it.  So thank you for sticking with me, because it's mainly because of you that I stick with it.  And thanks for the support when I'm late getting books out or take a small break.  You are all wonderful readers and followers!

My goal for the next year is to interact more with you my readers and also to keep on top of things better.  Also I plan to interact with other blogs more, host more giveaways (as funds allow) and just be more involved in the blog world.  My ultimate goal is one year to go to BEA, but that is not this year, but maybe next year :)


GIVEAWAY

The Spring Cleaning Book Giveaway Hop is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and it's a chance to do some spring cleaning on our bookshelves.  It comes at a great time since I'm celebrating my Blogoversary and I need to clean off my bookshelves! 

I will have three winners.  I'll giveaway five choices from my giveaway pile to one entrant for first place, three choices for second place and one choice for third place.  Know that the pile may change over time as I use it as my general giveaway pile, and that other titles will be added as I finish them.  I am working hard to clear my shelves and you can benefit (thus the combination with my Blogoversary). Open to US/Canada.

To enter, use the Rafflecopter.  Giveaway closes on March 25th.


Thanks to all of you who follow me and read my blog - it's been a great three year because of you!

Here's a selection of books (subject to change, but there will always be plenty to choose from, some are arcs, some are hardcovers, paperbacks, and City of Bones is an audiobook.  All are in good shape, read once.)

I have six in my must TBR pile. But I have another pile for re-reads and recommends, and old books that I haven't gotten around to yet. What can I say, I LOVE books!

KaylaBeck said...

My TBR pile is fairly embarrassing. Goodreads has me at 430, but there are about 50 that I want to get to before the end of the year (in addition to the new releases coming out). *flails*

Thanks for the giveaway!

alicia marie said...

my tbr pile is always ridiculous. I've got about 250 books on goodreads, but I've got a ton that I never even added on there I want to read plus all the new releases that are coming out and of course i've got books that i keep meaning to re-read just because : ) so of course, why not add more!!

Thanks for the giveaway!

latanya said...

about 10 books

miki said...

Arianne Cruz said...

I have over 100 in my tbr list right now..

Alicia0605 said...

Natasha said...

About 20 books. Thanks for the giveaway!

Ricki said...

Not sure, but too many for my husband's taste.

Vivien said...

Over 100.....I know :(

pandalovesyou said...

I have 463 on my goodreads to read list. My physical TBR pile is maybe 25-30

Linda Kish said...

I have too many to count. And, I keep adding to it thanks to all of you wonderful bloggers and your reviews. But that's okay. I have no other vices. And no one to complain about it other than my son. It's my house...he can move out if he doesn't like it. He's old enough and married so it's not like I'm kicking out a child. He doesn't complain much though.

holdenj said...

Well, there's more than one TBR stack around here. At least 20 or so books just waiting for me to pick them up! Thanks!

mirrormera92 said...

My TBR pile??? I have no idea how many book are on that list, or even on my to buy list. I know there are hundreds. As for the ones I have I'd say there are over 25 unread books on my bookshelf or around my room. ~Mera

SusieBookworm (Susanna) said...

My TBR list is absolutely insane - a couple hundred, according to LibraryThing. I'm really good at getting books for free or very reduced prices...I just don't have the time to read all of them!

cyn209 said...

i'm too embarrassed to give an exact amount, but as the saying goes, 'there's never enough books'............

Kristin@BloodSweatandBooks said...

My physical TBR is quite small only 5-6 books.

My wishlist TBR is large something like 350 books lol.

bn100 said...

Hundreds

Rachel said...

My physical pile is around 50 books, but my wishlist is ever-growing!

Marjorie/cenya2 said...

Karli said...

Oh goodness... Goodreads tells me that I have 175, and give or take a few, that's probably accurate. Not to mention the new releases!

I have 35 books in my TBR pile and I seem to add more daily!

Carol N Wong said...

My actual TBR list is 379. I am planning on taking a three month break from entering contests this year because I am moving! My GoodRead TBR is a wishlist instead, I don't have those books.

I am in love with my books. On my other wishlist, there are 1,013 wished for books and quite a few of them are in your giveaway. I read around 120 a year, more or less.
