Pre-Order Miracle Contest @escottwrites and Blog Updates
BUT there is also another contest: if she reaches her goal of 1000 pre-orders, she will give away twenty-six gift certificates or donation to a school/library for books (twenty will receive $50, 5 will receive $100, and there is one grand prize winner of $500). I want to especially make sure any teachers or librarians see this so you can enter!
All details are on Scott's blog so make sure to check it out!
Remember Miracle comes out June 5 so I have included some links so you can preorder: Indiebound, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, and Amazon.
Now for some blog updates:
1. I figured out how to re-add threaded comments to my blog so I am going to try to be better about responding to comments here. However in general I don't respond because I figure the commenter would prefer a comment on a post at their blog (unless there is a specific question). Would you agree with this? I am also totally cool with people leaving a link to their latest post, blog homepage, or just a post that they want some comment love for-it makes it easier for me!
2. I have also been much better about commenting-one of my perpetual goals for myself! I would estimate that I comment on at least 10 blogs a day on average and it really does make blogging more fun.
3. If you received a comment on a post that is over a month old, I'm sorry for the delay. I had bookmarked your review to read and have only just now left a comment. Hopefully this doesn't bother you.
4. While last week I mentioned that I was in a bit of a reviewing rut, which still holds true, I also feel like I'm in a reading rut. My goal has been to read 25 books a month or 300 books this year and I am not going to make it this month barring something crazy that prohibits me from going to work but does let me read. I am hoping to make up the difference over the summer as I will have slightly fewer demands on my time. And I will do my best to catch up tomorrow (Memorial Day in the US); we'll see how I do in my monthly stats wrap-up. I do have a lot of amazing books on tap (including Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross, which should be reviewed at the end of June) so I am very optimistic about playing catch-up.
How are things going for you? Anybody have fun plans for Memorial Day weekend?
