Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway Hop Sign Up

It’s that time again! Welcome back to the SEVENTH(!) annual Black Friday Book Bonanza.

Even if you think it’s too soon for the holidays, they are right around the corner!

Just like last year (and the year before that, and the year before that) Black Friday is a great day for a hop. It’s the perfect opportunity to share a bookish prize or two, and also to stay home and surf the web instead of crowd-surfing at the mall.

The hosts for this year’s event are Marlene @ Reading Reality and Kimberly the Caffeinated Reviewer.

The giveaway will run from 12:01 am on November 24 through 12:01 am November 27. That’s Black Friday through Cyber Monday

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.

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.

BFBB2016Button300x400OptimizedBut 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. IΒ had been working there on contract, setting up the library. Now I get to help make the library a success. Wish me luck!

Black Friday Book Bonanza

black friday book bonanza 2015

Welcome to the Black Friday Book Bonanza, hosted by BookShelfery and the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

I don’t know about you, but I would much rather let my fingers do the walking through the internet instead of waiting in those body-crushing crowds for Black Friday specials. I like my toesies firmly attached (all the better for the cats to nibble on them!) and there is much more available online than in any mall. I try to avoid the malls until after the holiday. I do occasionally like to shop, but I don’t like following people in parking lots like a vulture, hoping against hope that they are heading for a car and ready to leave the mall. Also hoping I can beat whatever fellow parking space searching is zooming in from the other direction.

My personal theory is that all shopping mall parking lots are designed on the Hotel California principle. “You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave!”

I still want a car like George Jetson‘s, that compresses into a briefcase at the push of a button!

But until that day comes, there’s always internet shopping. No lines, no parking insanity, and you can shop in your jammies. And speaking of shopping in your jammies, I’m giving away a $10 Gift Card or a $10 book to the winner of this Rafflecopter:

Welcome to the Black Friday Book Bonanza, hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and BookShelfery!

Are you braving the holiday crowds, or do you do all your Black Friday shopping online? Or do you go crazy and go out on Thanksgiving night to get a jump on the season?

This Black Friday, instead of pushing through the crowds, let you fingers do the walking down the list of participants in this blog hop. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to fill a lot of Christmas stocking with books and gift cards.

Or maybe you’ll just find a few great reads for yourself!

I’m giving away a $10 gift card to winner’s choice of Amazon or Barnes and Noble!
