A Quick Survey About Subscription Boxes!

If you have not completed a survey on subscription boxes for me, and can spare a couple minutes (It really is only a couple minutes!) I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks! More bookish things coming tomorrow!

Coming Soon; Your October Book Box!

So, I have had this idea bouncing around in my head for the last month or so, of starting a Subscription Box Business. Featuring, of course…books.

And I searched all of the available ones already out there, and there are a bunch! One to never be deterred, I kept the idea in the back of my mind, still bouncing around on a daily basis.

I researched custom boxes, personalized shipping tape, printed tissue paper, what to call this business, how to start a subscription box business, what platform to use, etc. etc. etc.

Trust me, the list goes on, and on.

Do I use my already licensed business name of Books and Opinions, which I have trademarked, paid for, and created a logo for? Probably not. Enter more licensing and trademark fees, creating a new website, and giving myself one more thing to manage.

I have reached out to various authors for buying bulk quantities of their books for a specific month (I have a theme going on here!), and the response has been fantastic!

It is nearly September; school starts again in a minute, my weekly church activities start back up at the same time, and my oldest daughter is getting married the first weekend of October. Never one to give up, here is what I am going to do…

…I love Autumn, Fall, Halloween, October, November, I think you get the idea. So I have to have a box for October. And I do!

I just bought some great mystery books, and mystery magazines (think Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen!). Add some Autumn Spiced tea, gourmet cookies or chocolate, and a handmade gift or two, all in the Spirit of Spookiness! I am still “building” this box, so some more items may be tossed in!

So I have some questions. If you could be so kind as to complete the attached 8 question survey, I would greatly appreciate it! You can find the survey here: Subscription Box Survey

Dean Koontz Autographed Book Give-Away – Update!

I was made aware that the Rafflecopter giveaway link is not working correctly in my blog post from yesterday. I am reposting the link below, it should take you to a webpage. If, once you get there, it will not load, please send me an email at angi.gibbs@yahoo.com, with Dean Koontz as the subject, and I will put your name down for the drawing.

I am currently looking for another giveaway platform to use for my future giveaways, and hopefully it will go much smoother.

I also wanted my new followers to know that although the requirement is to follow my blog to be put in the drawing, I do still need you to enter your email via the Rafflecopter link. I received several new followers yesterday, and I just want to make sure if you followed to be part of the drawing, to please go to the link, or email me if necessary, to get put into the drawing.

I appreciate, and get super-geeked :-), over each and every new follow, so I want to personally say Thank you for choosing to follow my blog! It means the world to me!

Here is the link, and I hope it cooperates better this time!
