Welcome to day one of Reading Reality’s Second Annual Blogo-Birthday Celebration!
“What’s a Blogo-Birthday?” I can hear you asking from here.
April 4 is the blogiversary, or is that blogoversary, of Reading Reality. On April 4, 2011, this blog was born. Woohoo!
April 5 is my own birthday. My mom told me that it was a Friday, but I’m not going to say which Friday. Some things must remain mysterious.
But to commemorate these occasions, I’m giving away some bookish prizes. (Think of them as a kind of Hobbit birthday. I have a party and give away presents!) Since it’s my party, I’m giving away things that I like. And I like books.
One of my favorite books last year was Ruthie Knox’s About Last Night. I loved it so much it ended up on my Best of 2012 list and on my Best Ebook Romances list at Library Journal. I wasn’t alone in thinking it was marvelous, it’s just been nominated for a RITA Award for Best Contemporary Single Title of 2012, and it’s not Ruthie’s only RITA nom this year either.
Ruthie has very graciously given me a copy of About Last Night to give to one lucky reader in celebration of my Blogo-Birthday. And, and, and, she’s also letting me give away a copy of her hot new story, Big Boy, part of the Strangers on a Train series. (I finished it this weekend, it’s hot and it packs a big storytelling punch).
I also want to share my joy of reading, so there will be also be an Amazon gift card giveaway today. That’s right, three great prizes to win!
Come back and party with me again tomorrow! I’ll be giving away more books and another gift card!
