One of the bloggy things that I have always enjoyed is the Black Friday Giveaway Hop. Black Friday, that strange day between Thanksgiving Day and the first holiday shopping weekend of the season, is kind of a weird day for blogging. Many people are off work and out of town with family. Some people still have to work. As a librarian, I’ve often had to work that day. For public libraries, it can be one of the busiest days of the year. High school students are wrapping up assignments before the end of the semester, and college students are home from school, often doing the same thing. It tends to be an “all hands on deck” kind of day.
But it doesn’t feel like many people are reading book blogs. Enter the Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop, which always seemed like the perfect thing to post. Everyone is excited about getting another present, or a gift card to buy more presents, on Black Friday. I’m hosting the Black Friday Book Bonanza this year, with Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer as my co-host. Kimberly was one of the hosts the last two years, and I appreciate her help with getting my first blog hop off the ground.
In other news, I started a new job this week. I’m the solo librarian at TAPPI, the Technical Association for the Pulp and Paper Industry. I had been working there on contract, setting up the library. Now I get to help make the library a success. Wish me luck!
