Black Friday Book Bonanza Blog Hop

The end of the year is creeping up, and it’s time to clear some space on the bookshelves.  What better time to give away books than the holidays?  Instead of running out to the stores on Black Friday, stay in and win new or new-to-you books. The hosts for this hop are Heather from Book Savvy Babe, Jenn from The Bawdy Book Blog, and Lisa from Alive on the Shelves. The dates: 12:01 AM Friday November 25 through 11:59 PM November 27.

Why fight the crowds? Books make great gifts and there are plenty of blogs handing them out for FREE!!!

Black Friday
Wouldn’t you rather kick back and relax. Let all the turkey and stuffing have a chance to settle and Hop along with us!
I will be giving away a print copy of Lord of the Abyss/ Desert Warrior by Nalini Singh. Contest open to everywhere The Book Depository delivers.
Check out my review on these marvelous books! Don’t miss out on any of the giveaways from the my fellow blog hoppees Smile

Of course I pigged out. Thanksgiving calories don't count, it's a holiday and everyone knows holiday calories are free! I hope you and all your followers had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

mnjcarter said...

I actually didn't even eat. Cooked for two days and wasn't really in the mood by the time all was said and done. I was told it was an awesome meal though, by over 30 people. My first time doing the entire thing, as my Mom usually does it, but passed away a week ago from cancer. Dad still wanted to do Thanksgiving, said it would be too hard not to. So, I got nominated to cook.

This blog hop is a great alternative to shopping with the loonies.

It was so good. Later at home we dug into the pumpkin pie with extra whipped cream...Yummy!

Well, apart from having two pieces of pie throughout the day on Thanksgiving, I would say no to the pigging out part. LOL I don't like turkey or stuffing or most of what is made for the holidays but my sister's pumpkin pie was yummy. :)
