Wow. It feels like an age since I last participated in a Feature and Follow Friday (yeah, okay, it's only been a few months). My life has sort of got a bit busier in recent months and I have to often schedule posts ahead, meaning that I miss out on the spontaneous conversation and visiting that goes hand in hand with the meme. Anyway, I don't think it's very fair to schedule these ones ahead (because I like the whole social aspect of clicking on the list, seeing who is featured and meeting new bloggers,) so I usually opt out. Anyway, on this particular evening I'm home and blogging, so I hope it's a great chance to catch up with some old friends and to make some new ones.
Anyway ... for those of you who don't know, Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme designed to help book bloggers connect and meet one another. It two awesome hosts, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read and also showcases two very cool blogs. And there is always a question to answer. This weeks question is ...
Question of the Week: Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! What books did Santa stuff your stocking with this holiday season? Do a holiday book haul for us! If you don’t celebrate just show off your books that you got this week. Pictures!!!
I didn't receive any books in my Christmas stocking. I guess even Santa wasn't sure what is and is not on my epic to-read pile. (Seriously, one day I'm going to post a photograph of my to read pile and shock you all.) Still, I stopped by a very cool bookstore at Edwardstown today and bought a copy of Dreaming of Zhou Gong by Traci Harding. It is a bit different from the books that I usually read, so I am looking forward to the challenge.
Anyway, I'm sure Santa was generous with you, but just in case he wasn't, while you are here you may be interested to know that I'm offering two of my novels, Behind the Scenes and Best Forgotten as free downloads from the Amazon Kindle Store at the moment. Behind the Scenes will only be available for a short time--it runs out at midnight Saturday PST, while Best Forgotten will be available until midnight Sunday PST. I'll be chuffed if you download them and even more so if you give them a review at some point. The links are here:
