Current Giveaways:

None right now.

Sunday, June 21, 2009


I've decided to do a book giveaway, since everyone absolutely loves them :) I'm giving away 'Two-Way Street' by Lauren Barnholdt..

This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation. Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care. But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot. Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other.

Okay so these are the rules for entering:

1) You need to answer this question in the comments field - Why do you love to read?
2) +1 Become a follower, if you already are, you get +2 points.
3) + 3 points if you have a blog add it to your sidebar, if not you can talk about it, either through twitter, myspace, facebook, etc. [but you must include the link to show me the post]

Deadline: June 27, 2009 at midnight - Winner will be announced June 28, 2009

Have fun!! ;)

I love to read because I love getting lost in a new book. I've always been swept away by books and it's a fun easy way to experience another place.

I love to read because I have two little boys and it helps me to escape for a little bit and live a totally different life for the duration of my book. I especially love reading YA books, since I am only 22 I remember what it was like in school and reading the YA books makes me think back to those times. I just really love to read, I like going to a different place and just relaxing for a while..

I love to read because it's the best form of escapism, and I love nothing more to pick up a good book and step into another world.

I love to read because it lets me forget, for a little while, the circumstances that surround me.

I read for the escape and to have a new voice in my head. Every book I read, every character I get attached to, I carry around with me forever.

Thanks again! =D

Awesome contest and great blog!

Why I love to read - it's like breathing air for me. It's an addiction now I think - I love being transported into different worlds. It gets me thinking creatively too and I end up with something on my mind because of it. I just have always loved to read and I don't think it'll ever go away.

Morning Eleni... nothing like waking up to a contest! :)

1. I love to read because it takes me to all the places I would love to go... I venture out to all corners of the earth (in some cases beyond the earth...), I meet all sorts of great characters who I love to just hang with. They are mini adventures.

2. I follow you on Twitter.

3. Hmmmm... you gave me an idea for a way to post this on my blog.... I'll be back with a link. ;)

I used to love certain authors like James Patterson, who I still read, but since reviewing and blogging this past year and my book club, I have branched out and have too many to tell...but many are on my blog. Thanks for the chance at this giveaway!

I just became a follower.
I's like to add your blog to my blog I suspect (am I correct?) that you are Greek, like me? If you see my Father's Day post, I talked about my heritage and my dad coming through Ellis Island. Thanks!

Oh I'd love to win a copy of this! The reason I love to read is because I can forget about all my stresses and go to another world. I've always loved to read, since I was young, and the one thing that bothers that all the people around me have a problem with it (they're not readers).

I am also now a new follower, and look forward to reading more from you. I love your layout by the way, colors are great!

I love to read because you can get so much more out of the story than seeing it on tv or a movie
