Showcase Sunday (15)

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books Biscuits and Tea. I participate in the meme about every two weeks (it's been about three weeks now since I last participated I think).

I've put myself on a book buying ban (of course that won't stop me from entering giveaways or from downloading free ebooks). So any of the books I got over the past three weeks, I either won or got for free.

Banned Books Week Giveaway Hop (Int)

Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop is hosted by I Read Banned Books and I Am A Reader, Not A Writer.

I'm not really sure if the schools/libraries I ever went to every had any problems with the books in their curriculum/on their shelves. However, I can tell you that most of the books I read in high school were ones that you would find on lists of banned/challenged books.

You can checked out ALA site to find out more about Banned Book Week.

Top Ten Tuesday (10)

This weekly meme is hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This week is " Top Ten Series I Haven't Finished ".  At first I couldn't think of series I haven't finished yet. However, all it took was turning my head slightly to my to get rid of pile and the first thing I saw was a few series I haven't finished yet. And then of course, there's a challenged I had joined for 2012 that I haven't exactly done a very good job at so I can probably name ten series I haven't finished yet.

More Giveaways!

More giveaways? You've got that right. Here are a few I've entered to win recently!

Showcase Sunday (14)

Showcase Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by Vicky at Books Biscuits and Tea.

I've been... bad, it's not my fault though. I completely blame my mother, who wanted to check out some books at a used bookstore. When books are less than $4 it's hard not to buy anything even if you don't have money.


I know I often say this, but I love giveaways. I don't know if it's only because I first learned about them under a year ago or what, but they never get old. Recently I've come across a number of blogs that have blogoversary and/or follower giveaways! So here's a few of them!
