Oh!! TOO MANY BOOKS
Said no bibliophile EVER!
But too little space is a whole other thing.
I often get both an e-galley and a finished copy of a paperback.
Once I have read a romance, since it is unlikely I will get a chance to reread it, there’s a good chance it’s just going to languish unread upon a shelf, the counter, or the floor.
Sometimes these books seem to be taking over my house. And my TBR pile is so large that I am not accepting solicitations for reviews.
We are 274 days into 2014 and I have read/listened to 160 books plus. I haven’t a review for every book I have gotten through so I don’t count it in my tally. But I have at least that many books in my to be read pile. Time to jettison.
Today I went through my books from publisher book case and came up with these Romances for a giveaway! The giveaway is open to US SHIPPING and entrants must be 18 or older. The winner will choose three of the five books.
UNREAD COPIES: VEIL OF TIME, Claire McDougall, THE SECRETS OF A SCOUNDREL by Gaelen Foley, and THREE WEEKS WITH LADY X by Eloisa James.
PRE-READ: STRANDED WITH A BILLIONAIRE by Jessica Clare
LISTENED TO: Audio book, THE GAME AND THE GOVERNESS CDs
I have reviewed all but Veil of Time and the reviews are linked through the titles.
Easy to enter, just comment and fill out the Rafflecopter form.
You can comment on anything civil and book related but if, like me, you can’t come up with some thing on the spot here are some ideas. NOTE: These are just ideas and you can pick and choose which you was to comment on. MAKE SURE YOU COMMENT HERE and NOT ON THE RAFFLECOPTER FORM – It has happened!
IDEA 1. Only a small percentage of Americans admit to having read more than one book in a given year. How many books have you read this year? Do you keep track, and if you do, how?
IDEA 2. What have been your favorite(s) this year; the one(s) you finished with a sigh, actually remember the characters’ names of.
IDEA 3. Are you a blogger? If so what is your blog URL and what do you blog about?
IDEA 4. Does it seem like a third of the romance novels on the shelves have Highlanders in them? Say you’re single and you meet a guy at a bar in your town wearing a kilt and a sporran and he is, sad sigh, not Jamie Fraser. If he wants to buy you a drink, do you accept, what do you order, do you find out what he’s wearing underneath (never gets old, that one)? I mean, considering the kilt in America, is not commonly worn would you assume he is a little bit of crazy or would you see him again.
IDEA 5. Post 50 Shades, I am pretty sure that another third of the romance books have BDSM themes. If you were single and you met a guy who invited you home to his “red room of pain” or his “playroom and we’re not talking about pool” would you go? Would you date him first, like in the daytime?
