Hauntings Around the Blogosphere, Part 2

October 5, 2011

Howdy y’all—

I couldn’t squeeze all the happenings around the blogsphere into just one post! Like I said before this is probably the best month ever in the blogsphere.

Haunted Halloween: True Tales of the Paranormal (Oct 1st-31st)

Hosts: Jess from Confessions of a Bookaholic and Lisa from A Life Bound by Books

What Can You Expect?

Last year we gave away around 150 books and featured over 65 authors. This year we are expecting it to exceed that amount by quite a few! And, that’s not all. We have added other giveaways to the mix. We have some incredible donations from a few etsy stores and other “bookish” places.

But it gets better! You know how we all love authors, right? They are pretty much our celebrities? Well what if you had something unique and custom made from one of your favorite authors? Not just signed…but actually designed by them and completely one-of-a-kind. Stay tuned for more information on that! We gotta keep a few things secret 🙂

A Month of Treats (Oct. 3rd-Oct. 31st)
