Meeting Bloggers, an Awesome Giveaway, and a Winner!!
This past weekend I had the great pleasure of meeting two fantastic bloggers who also live in Orlando. I met the lovely Sandy of You've GOTTA Read This! and Marianne of Diagnosing Mary at the Enzian Theatre for the release of The Girl Who Played with Fire. Both Sandy and Marianne were wonderful! Just very friendly and well-read ladies who I am so glad I got the chance to meet! If you haven't checked out their blogs yet, what are you waiting for? Hop on over now! The movie was very intense and well done, but since I have only read the first book in the series, Sandy and Marianne warned me that there was a lot left out. That's okay because as soon as I got home I ordered my copy of The Girl Who Played with Fire and now I am itching to get my hot little hands on it. We had fun talking books, drinking a little wine and watching Lisbeth Salander kick ass, and I am glad that I was able to share such a wonderful evening with some new friends!
On another note, have any of you ever heard of CSN Stores? They have a few different websites and feature a bevvy of products including children's toys, exercise equipment, cookware and even bathroom sinks! The reason I mention them is because I will soon be hosting a giveaway for a $60 shopping spree at CSN. So please stay tuned for the great giveaway that is coming up shortly!
Also, the winner of the giveaway for a copy of Life Without Summer and Sea Escape is Melissa M from the great blog Shhh I'm Reading. Congratulations, Melissa! I hope that you really enjoy the books!
Lastly, I wanted to give a shout out to Amy from Amy Reads and thank her for passing on the Oh My Blog award to me! If you haven't checked out Amy's site, I highly recommend that you do. She has a really erudite way of talking books that I am sure many of you would love!
That's it for now, but do remember to stay tuned for news of the shopping spree giveaway! I wish you all lots of happy reading!
