Black Friday Book Bonanza Giveaway

Reading time 1 mins

Happy Black Friday and welcome to CRAZY holiday season!

I am feeling so overjoyed this year to be living in a place with all FOUR SEASONS. I am just weeks away from moving out of this cramped apartment into a much bigger place, I got a new car this week, and we now own a BMW (motorcycle okay, but that counts!). Also, everyone is happy and healthy so I have much to be grateful for. I want to share my JOY with you by giving you a chance to win $20 at Amazon so you can get a little something for yourself.

Some ideas for you if you win:

  • Get a book you really wanted but didn’t get the ARC for. (everyone has the ONE book that got away)

  • Get a book you really need to help you get organized and get a jump on your New Years resolutions.

(i can honestly say all of these are wonderfully written and did help me personally)

  • Get yourself some bookish swag

Who doesn’t need more swag?

(pictures link to amazon, i am a shameless affiliate)

Just get yourself something nice!

Good Luck!

      You can get anything you want, these are just suggestions. I actually found On Writing at a library book sale, it is really good.

    I would buy the Harry Potter coloring book for my 13 yr old daughter and some beard softener for my husband for Christmas. These are things on their wishlists and since we are pretty much broke from Black Friday shopping for the younger 2 daughters, I need to step up on getting the older one and husband gifts. It sucks when you can’t just go buy dolls anymore, kids get more expensive at Christmas the older they get.

    I’d use it for books. Which books would I get is the ultimate question.

    I’d get a book, but something I wouldn’t normally buy until it went on sale because it’s too steep for my budget or something. I am shamelessly frugal. 😀 Congratulations on the new place, car, and the BMW (even if it’s “only” a motorcycle, because it does count), by the way. Thank you for the giveaway!
