Sparkle Time Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Sparkle Time Giveaway Hop, hosted by Mama the Fox!

As much as I love fireworks on the Fourth of July, it is not very sparkly here at chez Reading Reality at the moment. We came home from our conference on Monday and now we both have the plague – otherwise known as COVID-19. It’s our first time actually catching the thing after being immunized and boosted, but it’s starting to look a lot like the ALA Annual Conference this year just might have been a superspreader event in spite of the cautions that were taken. It’s kind of c’est la vie as long as we both remain vie.

But this bloghop is designed to spread a bit of socially distanced light and even cheer, as all of the participants are giving away something that will hopefully make someone’s holiday a bit brighter. Here at Reading Reality, it’s the usual bloghop prize, the winner’s choice of either a $10 Amazon Gift Card or $10 in Books. This giveaway is open to all!
