December Rewind

Aloha! 
How was your Christmas and New Year’s? Hanukah? Kwanzaa? We’re flying back tonight after a decadent seven-day holiday in O’ahu, Hawai’i. It’s perfect reading environment here, you guys. I’m certainly not looking forward to going home to wintry Winnipeg. I wish we could move here! I’ll keep this short and sweet as my December has been crazy busy with life, so much so that I’ve sort of neglected blogging for a bit.

COMING UP IN JANUARY

There’s a contest on the blog right now where you can win 21 books in one shot. It’ll be a great addition or a starter set for your bookshelf! If you haven’t entered yet, you’ve got a bit of time since the contest will run for the entire month of January. Remember: You must be a GFC follower to win. I’ve noticed some entrants who have tweeted and commented on the contest but are not following the blog. Just…FYI 🙂
I’ve planned to keep giving away books that have received a 5 Star rating on the blog, so keep watching for those. As always, I love to hear your thoughts and your comments is the fuel that keeps this blog going. Please feel free to tell me to shut up or leave me some love 🙂 
I really have nothing going on for January – no tours of any kind. This is going to be a long winter but I’ve got a ton of books to keep me from Cabin Fever. I’ve joined a couple of challenges for 2012 and I can’t wait to jump right in! I think I’ve bored you enough. Here’s to a fruitful 2012, fellow bookworms!
How was your 2011?
