I'm Wondering This Week (+ Giveaway)

So I skipped a week, sometimes life happens. But thanks to all who entered the giveaway 2 weeks ago.  I announced the winner on the post and emailed him, but I have not heard back.  Anyway, Carl Scott if you see this post,  you are my winner, email me at readingcrystal74**at**gmail**dot**com with your email and the bookstore of your choosing for your $5 GC. If I don't hear from Carl by 2/11 I'll draw a new winner.  Also thanks to Carl, his winning entry was a suggestion on what I would like to be a weekly feature so I'm trying it out this week.  What do you think?

Thanks for all the suggestions 2 weeks ago,  I learned new authors and will be adding books to my wishlist on Pinterest.

So onto my question and another $5 GC giveaway.

I'm thinking on sprucing up the blog, putting more time in it again and I have a very basic question for you this week.  Kind of a survey of sorts.  So my question is:

If you are a Blogger, what platform do you prefer, WordPress or Blogger?  If you are a blog reader which platform do you prefer, WordPress or Blogger?

Thanks for sticking with me and I look forward to hearing what you think!

Summary of Graham Parke's fundraiser/Winner of Kindle Fire HD

“I'm very polite by nature, even the voices in my head let each other finish their sentences.” – from Completely Flappable

Each year I organize an event during which I give away free books and raffle off some prizes. This year I thought it would be fun to donate the proceeds as well. I'd chosen Child Helpline International as they support toll-free child helplines worldwide, and help highlight gaps in child protection systems. I'd like to thank everyone who picked up a copy of "No Hope for Gomez!" or "Unspent Time", and I'm happy to be report that we raised over a thousand dollars for the CHI.

The Kindle HD Fire goes to: Daniel Wakefield Regs,

Graham Parke

PS -lets see how far we can get next year ;)
