Belated 100+ Followers Giveaway and Blog Hop

I just can't stay away, huh?  Well, this time I'm here to check off one of my back burner stuff ... to do a GIVEAWAY (and might as well hop while I'm here)!  It would have been a little sooner but I was having problems with Book Depository so I wanted to make sure that things were ironed out there first.  So, without further-ado, I offer you a chance to win books worth up to $20 for old followers (before today's post entry date and time) or $10 for new followers.. from the Book Depository (open to those where BD ships to, check HERE).

All my GFC followers up to this point are automatically entered in this giveaway.  Though there's two of you that are not showing up on my pictured list but is somehow counted by GFC... so let me know if that's you (or if you're following me in a different way) and tell me if there's a way to verify it... if there's not a way to verify it then leave me a comment stating that in your honor that you are a follower, then I will consider you qualified (but you must leave me your name and email or blog address so that I can contact you).

**Giveaway ends Monday 10/25/10 6pm PST.  Winner announced on Tuesday 10/26/10 and will have 48hrs to reply thereafter. ~Winner chosen old school... name on piece of paper, put in bowl, shake, grab one paper out, viola! ...sorry I don't know how to spreadsheet/random-org.

**Extra entry for those who leave me a comment here with the name and author of one of your favorite books...reason why would be nice but not necessary.

**Another extra entry for those who blog or sidebar this giveaway (make sure to leave a link so I can verify).

**There are a few of you that have a private profile so please leave me a way to contact you ... email or blog address.

Welcome blog hoppers!  Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find it a place you'd like to follow and come back again and again. :)

This week's question:  What are you currently reading?
My answer:  I've started 5 books and finding myself in a bit of a blah moment plus still chipping away at my back burner stuff so I don't know which I'll end up getting through.
1. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
2. The Infinites by John Banville
3. Every Last One by Anna Quindlen
4. Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch
5. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

This weeks's question:  Where's your favorite place to read?
My answer:  On my leather recliner. :)


  1. Great contest and Congrats on 100 followers!!!

    I'm and old follower, and I linked your giveaway to my sidebar. Its about half way down on the left! You can find it HERE!

    My absolute favorite book is The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I love the writing style and it is the type of book that sticks with you! With a unique plot and unforgettable characters, it is easily a book you can read over and over. If you haven't checked it out, you should!

    XOXO Steph

  2. Stopping by from the FF.

    Steph, I am also a fan of the Host.

    I'm currently reading... Beautiful Darkness *grin*

    Mad Scientist

  3. Thanks for the fabulous giveaway and I'm an old follower!

    My favorite book is Mercury's War by Lora Leigh. I love PNR books and her characters are so real and the emotions just flow from the pages.


  4. Hi Jinky! Congrats on 100 followers! :) I'm a new follower, myself, from follow friday! :)

    Can I name a favorite SERIES? I absolutely LOVE the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey. If I had to chose a specific book, I suppose either Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern or The White Dragon. I recommend Anne McCaffrey to anyone I can. I first picked up this series when I was EIGHT. I'm 20. It's so innovative for a science fiction world, and I've been completely enamored with her world of Pern from the very first page. Her writing is superb and is what made me aspire to be a writer! Am I ranting? I'll stop. :x

    Here's what I'm currently reading.

  18. Hi. Thanks for stopping by :o)

    New follower.

  19. Congratulations Jinky! One of my most favorite books is A Desity of Souls by Christoper Rice.

  20. Hopping by, thanks for reading my blog!

  21. Hi! Thanks for returning the hop! If I were to recommend a tame urban fantasy / paranormal novel I'd say Rachel Vincent's Shifters series. There's not too much weirdness in it other than the fact that they turn into werecats until later in the series. It's very good! I have reviews of the last 3 books on my blog if you're interested. :)

  22. Hi I am a new follower on GFC!

  23. My favorite book as of right now is Heart of Lies by M.L.Malcolm it is such a heartwarming, and intriguing story all at the same time!

  24. Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I really love your blog, especially your short reviews. You have such a wonderfully eclectic taste! Count me as a new follower. :)

    What is one of my favorite books? That's a pretty hard decision, but I think I'm going to go with Never Let Me Go by Kazou Ishiguro. The thing that really stuck out to me about this book was its honesty. The people in it were real people, just trying to live out their lives and spend what little time they had with the people they loved. I posted a review of it on my goodreads awhile back in case you're interested.

    Happy reading. :)

  25. Hey Jinky! Missing you over here!
    I remember reading The Outsiders in highschool...but I can't remember all the details. Congrats on 100 followers!

  26. Hi there! :D Thanks for stopping by my blog and I must confess, I like your color palate much better than mine! xD I'm now a new follower of yours. ;3

    Also, my favorite book--well, it's the first book in the series--has to be Karen Marie Moning's Darkfever (from the Fever series). It's Adult Urban Fantasy, but I love it mainly because of her writing style and the way that the character interact (not to mention, there's always a memorable quote or ten).

  27. thanks for hopping to my blog.Please enter me in your contest.

  28. My favorite author is stephanie myers. The reason is I had stopped reading iin high school. Im 43 now. I wasnt a good reader at all. when twilight came out i wanted to know what my daughter was reading. I read them and loved them. I have been reading every since. Now i even have my own blog. who would of thought. I also win books read them and donate them to the public library here. They lost their funding for the YA books. so i donate.
    check out my site.

  29. Hopping by & will be following. So many books in common--I love when I can connect with a book blogger reading similarly to myself! Hope you'll stop by my book blog when you get the chance. Have a great weekend :o)

  30. Hey i wasn't sure where to anser your question, but I find the pictures of the books from Catalogs I get in the mail from book clubs I belong to online like Literary guild, and some others. I just cut out the ones I like. Hope that helped.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment. You are fabulous! :)
