One Lucky Blogger

I have indeed been a very lucky blogger lately.  Firstly I had an email saying that I had been lucky enough to get one of my LibraryThing early reviewer books - these are prepublished (or newly published) books that are offered to members of LibraryThing for free on the proviso that they publish a review somewhere.  Actually this is not a RULE as such, but it could affect your chances of getting another free book.

Anyway, to cut a long story short, a book arrived on my doorstep the other day - Mother Teresa's Secret Fire by Joseph Langford.  I don't remember selecting this one! I do however select the books that I think that I would like rather than going crazy and asking for them all!!   Do look out for the review at some point.

And that's not all.  A few weeks ago one of the blogs that I read was asking for a caption to her photograph in exchange for a book selected from her list of books!!  So, if you head over to Bold Blue Adventure you will see the photograph and the caption that I dreamt up! (not the caption that is actually on the photo I should point out!)  Today I discovered that I won that one and I decided to choose Maid Marian by Elsa Watson cos it sounded interesting! (expect that review too!)

And still, that's not all!!!  A few days ago I gave the answer "peloton" to the question "what's this" on Where's My Damn Answer and I was right!! As were a few other people who got it right we all got a little prize, and mine arrived in my email box today - a gift voucher for amazon!! Yes, that's right! So, I quickly scurried over and bought a couple of books - they should arrive next week, but I don't think that I will be reviewing those as they reflect my current predilection for paranormal romances!

Haven't I been a lucky girl?  So, if you come back in a few days you should hopefully seeing my One World One Heart giveaway post where I shall be showing off handmade greeting cards that I will be giving away!!!

Wow, I'm so jealous! You have some good reading to do!

I'm curious, though... what are some of the paranormal romances you are reading? Sounds like something I would like too. :)

I just nominated Maid Marian for my on line book club. Sounds like my just sort of read!

Congrats on your wins! I've been trying to figure out what I can make for the One World giveaway thanks for reminding me that I have to get on the ball and get that worked out!

Have a great weekend!
