Blog grand opening! Awsome giveaway!

 Contest has been changed!!!!! see HERE

Hello everyone! For a few years now I have been combining a personal blog and a book review blog as one. As I have been reviewing more books and enjoying it, I have decided to separate the two. My blogs are getting a divorce! No no, its a good thing! They really had no business being together in the first place. They were constantly fighting for attention, tired of taking turns, one would always have to take the back seat. This way both blogs can get the full attention they deserve with no fighting.

To celebrate my new book blog I am doing a great giveaway! This one you won't want to miss.

You may notice that since this is a new blog I do not have any followers  :-( To non-bloggers you may not realize how important this is. When a book company or an Author is deciding if they should send you their book to review, many times they will look to see how many flowers you have to see how much action your blog gets. So having a lot of followers is very important in the book review world. So this is a push to get followers. Becoming a follower is easy, you just click on the follow button on the right and follow the directions. If you get confused email me and I will talk you through - forevereading at gmail dot com

What am I giving away? This beautiful book calendar! I am so excited about this! I bought one for myself and loved it so much I decided to buy another to giveaway. I bought it from bookloversstuff
A portion of the sale of each calendar will be donated to First Book, the organization that gets books into the hands of children in need!

 I put my hand in this one so you could see how big it is!
This is a really beautiful, large, full color calendar. You do not want to miss out on this giveaway!
If you don't win this contest, the calendar is definitely worth buying and it goes to a very good cause!

How to enter -
*Become a follower! The first 50 followers will automatically be entered to win! (If you become a follower and do not want to be entered just leave me a comment telling me to not enter you).
*When is the contest over? - When I get 50 followers. Hopefully before the new year, so you can use the calendar.
*Please US and Canada only (sorry, it is just too expensive to send to other countries). I will still welcome followers from other countries though! This is a non-discriminative, not prejudice blog! All are welcome here!

When I get 50 followers I will assign everyone a number and use random.org to choose a number. The person with that number will be the lucky winner.
I will announce the winner on here. so you will need to check back to see if you have won. I will give the winner one week to contact me. If they don't contact me I will choose another winner.

Good luck to all and I hope you come back to read my book reviews!


  1. Wendy! Great idea!! Thanks for letting me know. I want to be a follower...however, there is nothing to click on where it says Followers....I will check back later to see if it's fixed.

    Congrats on your new blog!

  3. Yeah, we can't add from this page. I went into my dashboard and added you as a blog I follow from there. It says I'm following, but I'm not sure.

  7. I tried to become a follower, but it won't let me :o(

  8. Wanted to let you know I'm following your blog but might not show up through your follower widget! You should install statcounter.com stats or something like that so you can keep track of all of the hits!

  9. What an awesome calendar. I think I'm following via GFC(MonaG).

    I follow your original blog via email.

  11. I do want to enter this contest. I do follow you in the old blog but as the other said, it just says "Followers" and nothing else shoes up. I went to my dashboard and it is gone too! I went to FB and there seems to be another group by the same name!


  12. I'm now following.

    Love that calendar!!


  13. I'm a new follower! Thanks for hosting this contest!

    The followers will come, no worries, you had a great blog & a divorce will not impact that! lolol

  15. Hey Wendy! I just followed this blog, but instead of the google followers widget, I get the error message. However, you do show up on my blog list and in my RSS reader (just checked!).

    Anyways, good luck with the new blog and I'm excited to read more reviews from you!
