The Winner of the Two $25.00 Amazon Gift Cards…

is Glogirl!  I sent an email to you and will have your gift cards on their way as soon as I hear from you!

Thank you everyone who entered, and I will be having more give-aways in the very near future! I have unfortunately had some personal family issues happen in the past couple of weeks, along with getting ready for Christmas, homeschooling, and a bout of the flu. I have our Advent by Candlelight Christmas program at church tonight, and then my duties at church should slow down a bit.

My work duties, however, are in full force as we end the year; I work in the Materials and Planning department, and this is the busiest time of year for us!

I am down to minimal stories to review yet, and will have more reviews posted starting tomorrow. Thank you for your patience if you have been waiting on a review from me. I have 4 that are ready to go and will be posting over the next 5 days. I am also going to focus on author features once a week, and will be contacting those of you I am featuring in the next few weeks individually.

Thank you again so very much for following my blog, participating in my giveaways, and being awesome writers and readers!

500 Followers! One Happy Girl Here!

Thank you so very much to each and every one of you who have chosen to follow my blog! I could not explain the excitement I feel each time I see I have a new follower; the 500th one was as exciting as the very first one.

500 Hundred Followers

I try to write a blog that is interesting, fun, and informative. I love books; they are my passion, and the stories I have read have been so much a part of my past, present, and certainly my future; I could not imagine a day without my books.

My bedroom is dominated by bookshelves full of books; yet I still have books packed away, stacked on top of others, and never-even-read yet, because I have so many. I am grateful to have 4 daughters who love books as much as me, and I know that is because I read to them from day one, took them to the library every week, and set a good example.

So once again; Thank You so very much! It truly makes me happy to be able to share my joy of books with so many others!

Amazon $25.00 Gift Card

I have said it many times, but I will say it for the last time; I have had a very wonderful, Blessed year. So I want to share. I am giving one winner two $25.00 cards so they can use them both, share one, or gift them both. No one will ever change my mind that it is truly better to give than to receive!

My autographed book giveaway was a dud, so I am holding my other autographed books until I can add something extra with them!

Best of luck; follow, leave a comment, and I will post the results ASAP!

This give-away will be going live at midnight! If you have any issues with Rafflecopter, contact me directly at: angi.gibbs@yahoo.com with the subject Amazon Gift Cards!

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!

Who knew it could be so difficult to give away things???

There’s Nothing Like A Day of Illness…

…to make a person appreciate how wonderful it is to feel, well, wonderful! My first official day of my 9 days off for Thanksgiving break, yesterday, consisted of me vomiting, dry-heaving, sweating, shaking, cold-sweats, and a headache from Hades that I could not take anything for, because it would not stay down anyhow.

So I did not get any of my reading or reviews done, at least not like I had thought I would. I never left the vicinity of my bedroom-bathroom until about 6pm, and managed to eat some jello! Which lead to taking some ibuprofen, and a cup of Thera-flu. I feel spectacular today, and am taking advantage of it. So I was up at 6am making cupcakes, cleaned the house, and got groceries at 8am before the stores got crazy busy. It is a trip to Allendale to visit my oldest, and then off to the movies with my youngest two to watch Mockingjay. My 16 year old is having a whirlwind visiting spree with her Father and extended family.

I have 8 more days off, and besides helping my homeschooler, I have a whole lot of books to get read, and I have every intention of getting it done 🙂

Wishing you a warm, healthy, Blessed Sunday full of comfort and a good book to read!

More reviews coming soon, and my next giveaway will begin, tomorrow! Stay tuned 🙂

The Winner Of The Two $25.00 Amazon Gift Cards Is…

Julia R. From Washington! Congratulations Julia 🙂 Thank you everyone for participating, and stay tuned for more giveaways coming up very soon! I have more gift cards, autographed books, and whatever else may catch my eye between now and Christmas!

I feel truly Blessed in my life and I also wholly believe that it is better to give than to receive! So that is what I am doing, now through Christmas!

Please keep participating and spread the word!
