If you’ve been a long-time reader of this blog, you may remember back when I did Book Cover Bingo. It was an awesome game, and I had tons of fun hosting it. I was excited to do it again, and I would still love to do it again, but it boils down to this: I just don’t have the time.
What makes me feel especially guilty about not hosting another Book Cover Bingo is that I’ve stacked up a very nice pile of books that have been donated from Creative Spaces interviewees for Bingo prizes.
I love the authors and illustrators represented in that pile. When I originally conceived of hosting Book Cover Bingo on my blog I had two goals 1. Have fun and 2. Help spread the word about some cool authors and illustrators.
I see a few options for what to do with my Pile-o-Guilt: A. Hoard it and cackle gleefully, “Books! Books! Books!” B. Donate or pass titles on to friends and sheepishly hope that none of the generous people who sent them my way have noticed I never gave away their book. Or C . . .
Host a 15 Days of Giveaways!!!!
For the next three weeks, Mon-Fri, I’ll be re-running the interview of an author or illustrator and giving away their book to a randomly chosen commenter. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment. You can comment on as many interviews as you would like. Unfortunately I’m going to have to limit the contest to US only.
So starting tomorrow, let the giveaways begin!
