Pre-Order Miracle Contest @escottwrites and Blog Updates

Just a reminder about preordering Miracle by Elizabeth Scott but with some new information! See, she is actually hosting a contest with the chance to win some awesome books and you can enter if you just blog/tweet/whatever but you get extra entries if you also pre-order Miracle and send a screenshot/forward confirmation email to

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?


  1. Elizabeth Scott is always such a great supporter of libraries. It seems like every time she has a new book released she offers free copies to libraries.

    About your monthly update-I can't believe your goal is 25 books a month! That is impressive!!! I average about 10 books a month if I'm lucky.

  2. Aww, I can't get over how amazing it is that Elizabeth Scott is going to support a library like that if she reaches her goal! I abuse & love my library like crazy, so seeing people support them always makes me smile :)

    And I'm the same way with comments! I know a lot of people always reply to comments on the actual post which is really cool for discussion, but I like to take that time to write a comment on the person's own blog instead. You meet so many people that way and find out about a lot of cool books by visiting other people's blogs! :) Also, you shouldn't feel obligated to have to finish your wow-worthy book count of 25 if you're busier this month -- I'm amazed whenever you read more than 15, because I think that's MY average LOL x) I just hope that you can get out of your reading rut soon!

    I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday, B! <3 This has been an uneventful study-for-exams-and-finish-summatives weekend for me LOL. But I CAN'T WAIT to read your review on Kill Me Softly because I loved it so much! :)

  3. Wow Elizabeth Scott seems like such a wonderful person! Libraries are the best!!!! Anyway I love the fact that you make goals for yourself! I think I should start that too!!! 25 books a month sounds really tough but it's great to see you are so determined to reach your goal...good luck! And I see what you mean about the comments! I get a bit lazy when it comes to commenting back but it really does make blogging more fun!!! Awesome post :-)


  4. Thanks for the heads-up. I really love her books!


Thank you for commenting-I love to read your thoughts! Feel free to leave a link to your latest post so I can stop by!
