Got Books?

Welcome to the celebration!

So what is this all about?

This is a celebration about books and the bloggers who love them! Be honest, where do you find most of the books in your TBR piles? If you're like me, you discover them via your fellow book bloggers! So this event is to celebrate book bloggers round the world by shining a light on their efforts, spreading the word about their sites, and to have a little contest fun along the way!

In what I hope will become an annual event, Got Books? is a collection of over 100 book bloggers hosting giveaways during a 48 hour period. Hosted by GMR at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers and Danielle at There's A Book, it's sure to be tons of fun! Be sure to check out the official Got Books? site for a list of all the participating blogs! I know I'll be visiting everyone to discover new blogs and to enter some cool contests!

So what's in it for you? Glad you asked! The below books are in need of a good home, and I'm hoping you'll help out. I really enjoyed all three of these books, and want to spread the word about their awesomeness!


Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler
Tracking the Tempest by Nicole Peeler
One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

And of course, you'll need a tote bag for all of your new books! Picked this up at the Chronicle Books BEA booth in May, and it's nice and sturdy!
