I have visited the blogs participating and the hosts for these giveaways. It's fun!

While blogging:

OMG!!! It has been a positively crazy week!!! It feels like a snowball which starts rolling down on the mountain and ends up like a snow avalanche. It has given me so much energy to blog!!!

The story started with having contact to one author who spread the word and suddenly there are approximately 20 authors contacting you. I enjoy it! Cheryl Tardif from ImajinBooks contacted me and she suggested couple of authors to do blog posts. Alison Bruce and Melodie Campbell have already been in my blog and through them my blog link was posted somewhere by Sunny Frazier. And after that snowball started rolling and before I new I had contacts to Oak Tree Press, too. I got so many interesting emails coming in to my mailbox and I got contact to many authors. I have agreed with some of them to read their books - I am looking forward to cooperating with all of them, in one way or another.


I got 1 paper-book this week and several e-books.
I received an expected book in my mailbox yesterday - Everyblue by Brenda Pandos. I will be participating in the Everblue blog tour and now I have the book and also 5 bookmarks and they are all signed!!!!!

Besides that, I have received following e-books:
