Updates and some giveaway hints

Whew! As most of you that read this blog often know, it's been quite a busy past few months for me. Job searching, getting the new house in order, a dog that seems to always want to be sick, the Cybils, trying to post every day, etc. I'm getting a little tired...wanting to just slow down a bit. Which is resulting in a process of trying to figure out how to revamp this blog for next year. I'm not sure if my goal will be to write about every book I read like it was this year. I'm not sure if I'll set my reading goal at 250 books again. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle my reviews, writing about the good and the bad, or just the good. I'm still just not sure. More updates to come on all that in the near future. And if you have any tips to make the blog better, send them my way!

What I do know is that I'm going to be giving away a whole bunch of goodies for the holidays! Sound like fun?? I'm still working out the kinks, trying to figure out when I'm giving away what,but you will (hopefully), get the items in time to give as Christmas gifts, if that's what you choose, and they will be fun! So make sure you stay tuned here to check out the giveaways and pass the word along!

I'm also going to be randomly featuring some Christmas ideas for you all. If you're interested, you can buy the items through Amazon and I may just be able to make a couple of bucks through the Affiliate program for shipping all the giveaways! These will be items that I have personally tried, so I'm not just trying to convince you to purchase random "stuff."

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hi Amanda. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your blog and that your reviews have not only given me better readings for my library collection, but have given me a lot to read for my own selfish pleasure! Whatever you decide to do with your blog, be it fewer reviews, or differently structured reviews, will be a benefit to your readers, and it should not be a source of pressure for you. Your reviews are a huge help, even if you only review once a year. I wish you luck with everything and thank you for this blog.
