Hi everyone! So, I have WINNER names for you for April books. If your name is listed below, please email me at email@example.com with your full name and address so I can get your book to you.
Before I list the winners, there are a couple of housekeeping things to mention.
First, before I forget, if you head over to InternationalChick Lit Month on Monday, May 7, I will have a guest post there, and I do believe I’ve offered to give away five copies of The Cell Phone Lot, so if you take a few moments to go read about how I morphed from a mommy blogger to a book blogger and leave a comment, you could still have a chance to read my e-novella. And it would look really cool to the people who put the ICLM program together to see that I had a whole bunch of commenters over there. So please and thank you! : )
Next: You may have noticed that I haven’t been personally blogging here in a long while. My kids are growing up and it’s no longer cool to dish about their personal lives any longer. So, I do that over here now at SheKnows Real Moms Guide where they have NO IDEA! If you’d like to read stuff there, please feel free to do so. I’m there every day with some very cool moms.
You also may have noticed that because it’s no longer a personal ‘mommy’ blog, I’ve switched the name to:
to obviously better reflect what goes on here. BOOKS! Which brings me to the next point:
"Booking with Manic"
I have a TON, and I mean A TON of books here that I need to share with you – seriously SO MANY to tell you about that I could give away a new book every single day! The problem is, I don’t have enough time to read them all. I need to know from you if I am giving you ENOUGH information about the books and if you’re happy with the format I’m providing?
Do you like the types of books I’m sharing with you? Are there authors I’m not featuring you would like to see? Tell me which ones!
Do you want other genres? Tell me what is on your wish list and I can try to make it happen. This is a blog for YOU and I would love to find books that you desire!
Summer is almost here, and that means my duties as taxi driver, school teacher, chef (when I cook!), etc, etc, slow down a bit and I will have more time to dedicate to the blog. My summer goal is to be able to bring you 3-5 books a week on the blog. I am very much hoping to make this happen. My kids get out of school in less than three weeks! Can you hang on until then! If so, here is the lineup for summer... click on the links to check out all these amazing books just waiting for you! ...
And so many more to come!
How does that sound for a great summer line-up!
Want in? Just keep coming back to Booking with Manic, and it would really be terrific if you could share this link on your FB or Twitter!
The next three in the line-up will be … Arranged, Jeneration X and The Rock Star in Seat 3A so stay tuned, but in the meantime, here are the recent book winners … and if you could kindly leave a comment on how you would like to see this blog run in the future, I would LOVE some feedback –
on how to announce winners
how much time to allow you all to enter before I choose winners (am I giving you too much time?)
if you like the books I’m featuring
what do you wish I would do differently on the blog - anything that would make it easier for you? Or more fun?
PS – I LOVE reading your answers to the questions I pose for each book and I feel connected to you all. ALSO, there are so many times I want to comment, but if I do, it will mess up the format for how I choose a winner through random.org so that is why I don’t comment but I LOVE learning about your favorite summers, best wedding stories, favorite song memories! Also, if you are not my Facebook friend yet, please friend me – you’ll find out about posts and updates on this blog so much faster and other great book info! Just let me know when you FB me that you are from the blog!
Here are the recent winners (please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and address so I can get your book to you):
You Are What You Wear:
I have some old beat up tshirts from high school. They are full of holes and about 3 sizes too big, but I will never get rid of them!
The Wedding Beat:
I was in a friend's wedding in Savannah, and for the bridal party instead of a limo we had a trolley drive us around, which was fun and cool.
Dani In Chicago said:
I met my best friend in nursery school. She beat me up because she thought I stole her penis. True story.
Jeff One Lonely Guy:
Kristin C said:
I was very lonely after I had my son almost 2 years ago. He was in the NICU the whole time, so I sent my husband home with our 16 month old daughter at the time to keep her on a schedule. I spent the whole time recovering from my c-section alone with my little guy in the NICU. It lead to post-partum depression and an extremely lonely time in my life.
The Song Remains the Same:
Montel Jordan's This Is How We Do It, will always remind me of high school. It was a song that if we heard it on the radio, we knew it would be a great night =)!
