Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop


It's time for another giveaway hop and what better way to bring in the unofficial start to summer than with the Splash into Summer Giveaway Hop hopted by  I am a Reader, Not a Writer and Page Turners Blog.

I'm keeping this super simple.  You have a book you want?  I'm giving away a $10 Amazon GC this time.  I've been all about the Amazon GC lately because I can buy books for my Kindle like crazy.  So you can buy what you want.  Open internationally.  Thanks for stopping by!

What will I be doing to kick off the summer?  Hopefully going out in the boat and heading to gorgeous Cape Lookout (you can see it below) to hang out with friends and families we know, enjoy some beverages of choice :) and read on some good books and of course work on my tan!  Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!
