Barnes&Noble Children And Teen Book Sale: Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off

Hi guys!

Just wanted to let you know that Barnes&Noble(online) is having a big sale on most teen books(popular titles too!). Buy 1, get 1 50% off. And it doesn't end with teen books. Children's books are also included in this sale. I am definitely going to take advantage of this sale! Sale is valid from September 27 - October 5 2010. Just a note: The LEAST expensive book will be 50% off, so I will make sure all my purchases will be books valued over $12 to get the best save. And I might just end my giveaway a little earlier than expected, possibly on October 3 so I can save some money on the book purchase. Who doesn't like a good deal?! I know I do!

International Postcard Swap! Come Join In!

I thought of doing an international postcard swap. What do you think? I love getting postcards from different countries or places so I thought this would be a fun thing to do. I will randomly assign you to another participant and you will send your postcard to them. You will also receive a postcard from someone else(which will remain anonymous until you receive your postcard). This makes it more exciting. If you would like to send more than one postcard, that will be fine too. I will swap you again with other people that want to send more too. You can write whatever you want on the postcard as long as it is appropriate. So if you want to participate in this fun swap, then just fill out the form below.

Updated Change: I will accept participants until October 3, 2010.

I will email you the mailing address of the person you will be sending your postcard(s) to from Oct 4-5, 2010.

Spread the word!

Giveaway: The Replacement Wristbands

I will be giving away 2 signed wristbands of The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, which releases on September 21.

The wristband is similar to what you'd get at the fair and is red with black text. On the front of the wristband it says the book title and author's name and release date. On the back of each wristband it has a different quote related to the book hand written by the author and her signature. I don't have a picture, but here is the description.

One wristband says, "Ugly is as ugly does..."

The other wristband says, "Beauty is skin-deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone..."

1st winner gets first choice
2nd winner gets the remaining wristband

Giveaway is International.
Ends 9/21


Comments below will not count as an entry.
