Blog Birthday: Giveback-Giveaway #6


Hard to believe that we've been blogging for SEVEN years!

This year we'd like to celebrate by giving back to our readers with a Giveback-Giveaway every day for seven days.

We'll choose a random winner from the comments each day and send them the featured book of the day. The books we've chosen are all new(ish) books that celebrate books and reading. (As we were choosing books, we realized that we need to update our Books About Books and Reading list in the sidebar. Are any of your favorites missing from our list?)

Thanks for stopping by to help us celebrate 7 years!

  27. It's hard to pick just one favorite in Laura's book. Four of my favorites would be
    "Calling All Readers,"
    "Skywriting,"
    "I've Got This Covered," and
    "The End."
