Stacking the Shelves #4, Wrap Up of Blogoversary Celebration Month, and Giveaway Winners

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!  This is being hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  I only  have two books to share this week, but I was pretty excited to get them!  I got Eve and Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate.  It was a contest I entered through Shelf Awareness newsletter from MacMillan publishing.  And I was so excited to see it come in the mail!

The other book was from Netgalley:  Broken by A.E. Rought, a modern take on the Frankenstein story.  Which sounded interesting to me!
  
Okay, let's get to talking about last month.  First let me wipe my forehead and say WHEW!!!  Posting something every day, especially when I was back to school and teaching, was a lot of work!!  I'm glad I did it.  But, don't expect me to keep it up while school is going on.  I did really enjoy featuring my friends' blogs.  I hope I was able to get them some new followers.  I also enjoyed giving away prizes, and was glad that I reached at least my 600 follower goal so that I bumped up the award amount on the Barnes and Noble gift card.  I have decided to try hosting a challenge this month, so if you are interested in participating, it only requires that you pledge to read 4 books (sequels) to participate.  And once again I'll be giving away a Barnes and Noble gift card, but only to people who sign up to participate.  If you want to help me be successful, you can sign up HERE and then go encourage your followers and blogger friends to come try it out too.  I'd love to make it a yearly event!  Unfortunately I've also learned how far behind other bloggers I am, as I really wanted to make a button for the contest, and I even had an idea, but didn't know how to make it.  I need to learn more about Photoshop, and if I even have it on any computers I am able to use.  Not to mention this past week or two Blogger has been really acting funny.  I no longer have my comment link on the drop down menu on my Dashboard, which I loved to be able to go reply to all my comments without having to go back to all my posts to see which  had comments.  And I also can't change any of the layout on my page, so the book that it says I'm reading now I haven't been reading for a couple weeks!!  So I have thought about moving, but then, the money, and not knowing html, just all that scares me away.  So, still dealing with that kind of stuff too. Okay, enough whining from me!  Thanks to all of you who stopped by and helped make my month long blogoversary celebration a good one!  I'm so glad for all my followers.  And now, onto the list of winners for the contests that ended at the end of August:


  • The winner of my Featured Blogger The Confounded Cook - City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is:  Lacey T.  I have contacted and heard back from her, so her book will be shipped from The Book Depository this week.
  • And the winner of my month long 3rd Blogoversary Celebration for a $40 gift card to Barnes and Noble is:  Erika Anderson Williams!  She has also been contacted and I've heard back from her.  Her gift card will also be in the mail this week.

Thanks again to all my new and old followers!  Keep hanging out!

  5. I've wanted to read Eve & Adam for a while now. I've read Michael Grant's novel Gone and I can't wait to read more by him. I should probably read the rest of his Gone series while I'm at it!
