Winner’s Lucky Leprachaun Hop

>

Sorry for the delay in announcing, peeps.  Last week was a bad week for me. I had to put my dog to sleep.  It was obviously a hard decision and I miss her very much.

But onto the news you REALLY want. The winner of the Lucky Leprachaun Hop is:

Valerie!  

Congratulations, Valerie, I’ve sent you an email with the details.  Just give me a few days to have them mailed out. If you’re international, give me a bit longer since I have to go to the post office. 

Thanks to all who participated, I hope you’ll join me for the next hop (the Easter one) and for my 500 follower giveaway when I get there.  (Please pass the word, because the sooner I get to 500, the sooner I can hold that contest.)

Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway Hop

>

This contest is now closed!  Thanks to all who participated and made it a success!  You all rock!  I will draw a random winner and announce by the end of the week!

Since I love giveaways and I TOTALLY forgot to participate in the last hop I signed up for, I figured I’d giveaway TWO prizes to the winner of this hop.

I’m giving away the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins.  That includes the only available books as of this posting, Hex Hall (book #1) and Demonglass (book #2).

To win, all you have to do follow me and then tell me why you want to win these books in the comments.  Easy peasy, rice and cheesy, right?

It is open internationally.

Make sure to look below at the linky for a chance to win even more great prizes.  Also, if you can’t see the comment form, please click the title so it brings you to the actual blog post.  You should see the comment form then.

Fantastic Friday: A request

>We all have books we don’t want, right?  We bought them thinking they’d be great and they weren’t.  Or we got duplicates as a gift.  Or even you’ve switched your entire library to an electronic one and have only ebooks now.  What do you do with all those books you’re not reading? 

Well, I have one suggestion. A good friend of mine, Ebyss Writer, is asking for donated books to help with her students.  She can explain it better than I can, so please read below.

I work with lower income and special students who want to expand their knowledge through a college education, but they are struggling with reading and/or mathematical concepts.

I would like to start a book drive. This way these students can improve their reading scores through practicing what we all love to do—-read. As we know, the more you read, then the better you get. Plus, I hope to ignite in them a passion for exploring other worlds and other people through the written word.

I am asking for you to help me by donating books for this cause. Any MG or YA books would be greatly appreciated.

New or used–doesn’t matter. Fiction or non-fiction—doesn’t matter. The only thing I would like to do is keep the reading lvl at MG and YA.

What I plan to do when I get with these students is let them choose a book for them to keep. A lot of these students don’t read—at least by choice—and I’m hoping to expose them to great novels.

If you would like to help, please leave a comment, message me on twitter or leave me a message on facebook. Also, if you could plz retweet this or like on facebook with a link to spread the word would be appreciated.
Thanks so much.

Thanks everyone who can help or pass along the word.  If you leave a comment on here for her, I will pass it along.  I’m already going through my books to see what I can give her.
