Giveaway Question:

So y'all know how much I love entering giveaways but did you know that I've been toying with the idea of hosting my own giveaway? That's right! Giveaways seem like such fun and I would like to get my name and blog into some more feeders out there. The only crux is I'm a poor college kid with very little money to spend and honestly, if I were going to spend my little amount of money on books, I'd want to be able to read them. :) I know, I'm selfish.

My question(s) to you all is, if I hosted a giveaway would you enter? What kind of prize would you want? If I were to offer some gently used book I bought from my local Hospice thrift store would you want to win them? Should I do a quick trail run giveaway before I enter something like a hop? Leave me a comment and let me know! A giveaway on my blog, amazing or not so much?


  1. Speaking of giveaways....you won my giveaway of The Hemingses of Monticello for the Black History Month Blog Hop! Send me your mailing address (I have a yahoo email address, joyweesemoll) and I'll get that out to you later this week.

    My take is gently used books are fine (that's what I gave away, after all). Go ahead and read them first. I like entering giveaways for books that the blogger loved.

    I would also suggest that you do giveaways through hops. Only the blogs with very large readerships get enough entries to be any fun. Hops mean that even us smaller blogs get a decent number of entries -- and, hopefully, more readers, too.

    1. I just emailed you Joy! And I personally am fine with gently used books. I shop at thrift stores and yard sales all the time and it doesn't bother me if someone else has read my book, it kinda gives it character. I hoped other people felt the same and I'm glad to see someone does! I would like to enter some of the hops that you find all over the wide internet to get some more readers but also to give back! I've been entering them for a while, it'd be nice to host one. :)
