Weekend Reads #80: Giveaway Update

Weekend Reads is a weekly post in which I discuss a variety of topics and mention the books I plan to read on the weekend.

Well, it’s not much of a discussion this weekend. I don’t have a topic. I just wanted to post a blog update.

Yesterday marked the end of my first GIVEAWAY, which I was so excited about that I attempted to post tag posts every day this week in honor of it. Unfortunately, my job made the week so busy and stressful that I couldn’t continue with the post past Wednesday. By the time I got home, the last thing I wanted to do was blog or even look at my computer, so I read instead.

But now it’s the weekend and I’m able to relax. 🙂 Also, as I mentioned in my GIVEAWAY post, the winner will be contacted today. I was excited to choose a winner, which, technically, I didn’t since Rafflecopter randomly chooses the winner. But I was excited anyway because I successfully hosted a GIVEAWAY on here after procrastinating on doing so for so long.

Well, the WINNER has been contacted and I’ve even decided to have a RUNNER-UP, who I’ve also contacted. The WINNER will receive a Book Depository purchase of up to $30USD and the RUNNER-UP will receive a Book Depository purchase of up to $15USD.

I’m excited for them and am glad and grateful for all who entered the GIVEAWAY. Thank you all!! 😀 I really appreciate it. ❤ 🙂

I’m Finally Hosting a GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi there:

I’m feeling a bit shy about this because this is the first GIVEAWAY I’m hosting on here. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve always said I wanted to do one, but haven’t drummed up the courage to do so until now. So YEAHIE for doing something new so early in the new year! 😀

I am excited to do this GIVEAWAY though and I hope you all are excited too. This GIVEAWAY is simply a celebration of all the work I’ve put into this blog, for committing to it, and for all the lovely peeps who’ve been following along with me this whole time. HEY Y’ALL!! Thank you so much! 🙂 🙂

Well, I don’t know how to embed the Rafflecopter thing I created into this post so….


Oh! I should also mention that this GIVEAWAY will run from Monday, February 5, to Friday, February 16.

And I’m giving away a Book Depository purchase of up to $30USD. Book Depository delivers worldwide. Visit its website to make sure it delivers to your country.

Be mindful that you’ll have to give me an address to mail your prize to.

I’ll notify the winner on Saturday, February 17.

And…I think that’s everything.

Go ahead! Click that link and be entered to win!
