Bloggy Giveaway Carnival!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my Disclosure statement for more details.

It’s that time again, for the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival! Wish it didn’t come on a week where I have so much work to do. Guess I will have to enter all the giveaways I want at home. πŸ™‚

I seem to have the same “problem” I had last time, which is that I have a bunch of credits on PaperbackSwap and really have no desire to bring more books into our home. I’m positive I still have over 100 books I haven’t read at home, plus review books coming in all the time. Right now I’m working on The Art of Compassion and Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven.

So I am giving away 5 PaperbackSwap credits to the winner of this giveaway! All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment (with a valid e-mail address, please!) telling me what one of your favorite books is. If you subscribe to my blog, leave an extra comment telling me so and you will get two entries!

If this is your first time visiting my blog, welcome! I hope you’ll stay and surf around. Because really, who doesn’t want to see adorable pictures of my 3-month-old daughter?

Good luck! I will pick a winner Saturday morning, January 31st. All you have to have to win is a PaperbackSwap account so I can transfer the credits to you. It’s easy to create one if you don’t have one already (but you do have to have 9 books to post that you want to trade).
