Daily Raffles: Day 1

Books and Chocolate

If you registered for Book Blogger Appreciation Week and if you posted the giveaways on your blog you already have three entries into this raffle! Raffles are daily and winners will be announced the next day.

But each day I'll give you some extra chances to enter. Today, leave me a comment about a new blog you discovered through BBAW! That's it and you'll get an extra entry.

By the way, I must have your email address or you risk forfeiting your prize!

Today's prize is: A ten dollar gift certificate to Amazon and homemade brownies from Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha' Readin? In order to win the brownies, you must have a United States mailing address. Therefore, if an international winner is drawn first, the prize will be split.

Have fun!

When scrolling thru the nominations I saw *Bloody Hell, It's a Book Barrage*, clicked over and loved the writing style. Who couldn't love a blog that features Monty Python?!

shootingstarr7 said...

One blog I've found through BBAW is Books I Done Read. I have to admit, the title of the blog is what caught my attention, but two of the reviews she's done recently tend to match my thoughts on the books exactly, and so I will spend a lot more time reading other reviews she's done.

Thanks!

Amy, I don't think we can say enough how much we appreciate all you've done to organize BBAW.

Now, I don't know HOW I missed her before, but I found Jill D's blog http://romancerookie.blogspot.com/ thru the BBAW list. And, geesh, I know I've browsed more blogs throughout the past couple of weeks since you started compiling the list, but Jill's sticks out because she's my kind of reader! ;-D

Serena said...

One of my new favorite blogs is Confuzzled Books which I found thanks to BBAW. She has some great reviews, but one of my favorite features on Shannon's blogs is the refer a book Friday where readers offer up reading suggestions for her, and when she chooses the best recommendation she offers that person one of her free books--she has oodles of them on a list at her site from which to choose.

Well I'm new to the whole book blogging thing, so pretty much all of the book blogs were new to me and kind of an overload. Almost too many to just pick a few. Found out about book blogging through Teddyrose.blogspot.com. Teddyrose is in one of my book groups online and I kind of got hooked on the whole idea of blogging as a way to share my love of books beyond my friends and family. oh email is awalworth19(at)gmail(dot)com.
