Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop


Welcome to the Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop, hosted by yours truly, Reading Reality, and the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

This is my very first time hosting a Giveaway Hop, and I can’t thank Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer nearly enough for all of her help and guidance. Without her, this hop wouldn’t have managed to get off the ground. Thank you so much, Kimba!

But about Black Friday. This may be one of the perfect days to participate in a giveaway hop. While there are some poor unfortunate souls who have to work today, for the rest of us, it’s a day for friends and family and recovering from yesterday’s turkey coma.

The holiday season may be a wonderful time of the year, as so many of the songs say, but it is a lousy time to go shopping, or be anywhere near a mall. Parking is horrendous. It is much more fun to shop online – there’s no waiting and no crowds. Personally, I don’t think it’s just Cyber Monday any more, I think it’s Cyber Weekend, and I’m just fine with that.

Freddie-cat likes it better too. He’s still a growing boy, and needs his humans around to provide both first and second breakfast, along with lunch and dinner. And occasionally second dinner if he makes enough of a nuisance of himself.

So, if you are planning to stay home and shop in your jammies with a cat holding down your lap, here’s your chance to win a $10 Gift Card or $10 Book.

  1. Thanks for the giveaway. There really is nothing I like about Christmas shopping; it’s too stressful.

  2. Thanks for the giveaway. I enjoy these good. It’s a wonderful way to meet fellow book enthusiasts. The only good thing about Christmas shopping is the satisfaction of knowing you are going to make the recipient happy … other than that it’s a stressful mess.

  4. Love the deals you can get so I do it online. Hate the crowds and all that goes with shopping in store

  5. I don’t like the huge Black Friday crowd, so I usually shop online. I love picking out presents for my loved ones.

  6. I like to spend my holidays at home where there is always peace and quiet from the hustle and bustles. Also, I live in Canada so we celebrated Thanksgiving a long time ago, and I do not participate on Black Friday other than being online and entering these wonderful Giveaways! I’m always down for FREE anything 🙂 Thanks for the invite!

  7. I hate holiday shopping with the traffic, crowds and usually bad weather. I bargain shop year round so I do not have the added stress at the holiday season.

  8. I used to love Black Friday shopping! The excitement over saving money, the rush of the crowds. Loved it all! But now….I’d rather sleep! LOL And shopping online is sooooo much easier – lots of times the deals are the same OR better and there is no waiting in hour long lines, no dealing with rude people, and I can stay in my pajamas to do it.

  9. I love holiday shopping when it happens BEFORE the actual holiday and not a few hours of the same day because you get the stressed out people who need to find gifts and nope… just no. I need to relax and stroll the shops to find the perfect gifts for my family and friends 🙂

  10. I like finding the best deals available; I think that’s fun. Unfortunately, I don’t usually have a clue what to buy friends & family for the holidays.

  11. I try to avoid all shopping from now until the first of the new year. I hate the crowds, long lines and rude people.

  12. I least like the crowds, and the stress of finding the right thing. I most like the Christmas decorations, and the music in the stores, at least that’s festive even if the people are not.

  13. I pretty much dislike *everything* about shopping, and I particularly despise holiday shopping. I do most of my shopping online these days with a few exceptions. (I actually really like Christmas/holidays, it’s just the ordeal of shopping that gets to me.)

    Congratulations on hosting your first hop, and thanks for the opportunity.

  14. I prefer shopping online. I don’t like the crowds, especially how rude some people can be.

  15. I don’t like it period….I can never make my mind up, it’s so hard when around this time of the year everything looks so cute >.<

  16. I’ve realized that you can shop anytime for Christmas. I’ve been done since August for this years Christmas. Sales happen all the time. I buy something when it’s on sale and save it for Christmas.

  17. I don’t celebrate the holidays and do my gift -giving year round, whenever the mood strikes or I see something that will be “perfect’ for someone. The only stress is remembering to stay FAR away from stores during the last six weeks of the year.

  18. The rude people. Today, black Friday, my family went to the movies. I had the misfortune of sitting by someone the shook her leg consistently, bit her nails and spit them out, and sucked on her purse strap. It took all I had to not tell her stop.

  19. My pet peeves are the people with too many items in the express lane and the people who leave their cart in the middle of the parking lot. Come to think of it I’ll bet they’re the same people.

  20. My favorite thing about holiday shopping is that there is this little thing called the internets, and I don’t have to GO OUT SHOPPING! I also like to pick out special things for the people I love, too!

  21. I hate holiday shopping because I just stress out too much if I’m getting the right for everyone. I usually assume everything I get will be hated and just give cash or gift cards.

  22. What I love about Holiday shopping are the deals and to actually buy something for the kids which is quite more exciting than buying things for myself.

  23. The thing that I like most about holiday shopping is deciding what to get the ones I love! Finding something that I know they will love warms my heart.

  24. I do not enjoy how grumpy people get in the stores! Makes me want to stay home till late January and keep my holiday spirit to myself and my family! 😛

  25. I HATE shopping!! Shopping during the holidays is even more maddening because I hate fighting the crowds. I actually LOVE picking out gifts for my loved ones, but I’m a happy girl if I can buy online 🙂

  26. I love to shop for the holidays, but I hate the fact that I don’t have any money to go shopping. This is the first time ever that I don’t have any money to buy my kids and grandkids anything for Christmas. 🙁

  27. I love getting good deals when I holiday shop. It’s really fun to me. After I find a great gift I can’t wait to wrap it up and put it under the tree.

  28. What I like most about shopping Black Friday are the deals. What I like least are the rude people. It’s like people forgot what kindness is.

    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  29. I don’t like the crowds or trying to decide on gifts. I get indecisive because there are too many options! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

  30. My favorite thing about holiday shopping is browsing through all kinds of cool items and imaging how happy my loved ones will be when they open their gift!

  31. I’m not really a shopper. I really don’t like big crowds or small talk and I prefer to save my money. If I do happen to go shopping, it’s usually to a thrift store to look for cheap book treasures. 🙂

  32. I hate the crowds and lines. I especially hate groups of people that hang out in an aisle and obliviously block everyone.

  33. I love to go shopping and the thrill of the hunt…I hate running out of money before running out of things I’d love to giveaway to family and friends.

  34. Thanks for co-hosting this hop! I enjoy online shopping for the convenience but it is special to get one day at least of in-store holiday shopping done for the ambience, the music, the decorations, the pretty wrappings, etc. Then the crowd almost knocks me down and I wish I was on my couch, searching for bargains 🙂

  35. What I like least is the crowds that make it hard to get to things and that cause long lines!

  36. I hate the crowds the most because so many shoppers are so rude anymore. I love finding a good sale.

  37. I like finding great gifts at great prices. It’s a natural high for me. Thanks.

  38. I pretty much avoid all stores between now and Christmas. Online shopping is such a great invention!

  39. I do most of my shopping online because I can shop whenever I have time and it’s a lot less stressful. I do like to go through the shops downtown because the pace is a lot slower and the decorations always put me in the holiday mood.

  40. I don’t really mind the crowds unless there are really long lines lol
    But I do enjoy the Christmas music & decorations <3

  41. I don’t like the crowds. I do like finding unique items or really good sales. My daughters and I do online shopping together and it is like a game because we are all in the same room yelling out deals.

  42. I do most of my shopping online, the worst part is checking loads of different places to find the best price.

  43. It is a love Hate sort of thing for me. I really love doing it but always stress about making sure I find something the person will really like.
