Welcome to the 2016 edition of the Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop, hosted by BookHounds.
I checked out the Google Doodles for today. While it is the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, it is the Winter Solstice south of the equator. Looking at the two doodles, those poor rocks are obviously way happier being up north today. On December 20, I’m sure it will be the other way around.
The winter version shows those poor rocks blinking and shivering under a blanket of snow!
But whether you are basking in the sun or shivering in the winter chill, a good book or two always helps to wile away the hours.
For my part in this Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop, I’m giving away the winner’s choice of a $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository. This giveaway is open to all!
In the Northern hemisphere, this is the longest day of the year. If you check out the Google Doodles, you’ll see that they have different Doodles for today, depending on whether you are entering summer or entering winter (shiver). Unless they are still doing World Cup Doodles, of course.
When it is hot and steamy out, curling up with a good book someplace cool and air conditioned can be a real treat. (Or while laying out by the pool and baking out the chill of the previous winter!)
Meanwhile, one lucky winner can look forward to a $10 gift card to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble. All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below. And for more marvelous midsummer celebrations, check out the other blogs participating in this Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop.
