Nerdy blogger who loves books, movies, music, television, travel, giveaways, pop culture, fat cats & comfy pj's.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for weeks, and I’m so excited that I’m finally getting around to it today. You may have noticed that I’ve been slacking a bit on the blog for the past few weeks, but only because I’ve got a bad case of some funky kind of Tendinitis in my hand, wrist and arm. (It rhymes with Aquarius.) I’m guessing carrying around heavy books all week in New York had something to do with it, but who knows. If you’ve never been blessed with that condition, doing things like typing, holding a book or the remote for my tv, brushing my hair, putting on a bra, or even answering my cell phone has become unbearable. I’ve actually went back on NSAIDS to deal with the pain, even though with my circulation issues the medicine could actually kill me. (Good times, right? No worries, because I don’t think that will happen.) The first EMG showed I had severe Carpal Tunnel syndrome, but after my doctor repeated the EMG, my condition was down graded, thankfully. Actually, I’m getting physical therapy for both my hand and Achilles Tendinitis right now, so I’m just not able keep up with my reading, blogging, and all the other things I do when I’m not blogging.
I’ve got so many books on my shelves that almost every shelf on 2 bookcases is holding 2 rows of books. I can’t give away books, or even donate them fast enough. Plus, to be completely honest, I’m a bit of a book hoarder, and getting rid of any precious book just about kills me. If you aren’t a long-time reader of my blog, you may not know I’ve been reviewing books for the past few years, and after attending BookExpo America for the past 2 years, hundreds of books have found their way into my heart and home. Sometimes ARC’s even just show up in my mailbox, books I’ve never requested and can’t ever possibly read. You would be surprised by how many books out of my genre just show up each month. I wish I had all the money in the world to be able to afford the shipping costs it would take to get rid of my extra books, but I’ve been either unemployed or under-employed for nearly 2 years now.
I decided that to help me combat with my growing book problem, I’d do a serious of giveaways, and I’m starting an all-Twitter giveaway which will continue until I hit 2,000 followers. If you aren’t on Twitter, it is pretty easy to set up an account. If you are a giveaway junkie, it is an excellent and easy way of finding about thousands of giveaways in one spot. If you don’t want to enter this particular Twitter giveaway, you can wait until the all-Facebook giveaway, but that could be months from now. I say why wait when a sure thing is right in your grasp?
