Poll results:

I asked my readers which meme they'd most like to see me posting on a regular basis. I realized I was too random with my memes and decided I just wanted to dedicated time to one, plus my mailbox post. 

Here's the results:
  • Waiting on Wednesday (9 votes)
  • Follow Friday (1 vote)
  • Teaser Tuesday (2 votes)
  • It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (2 vote)
  • WWW Wednesdays (1 vote)
  • No More Memes (2 votes)
So, WOW is the clear winner. That means I'll be participating in that meme every Wednesday from now on! Maybe I'll switch it up every month? I'll see how things go!

NEWS!
I recently became a Book Depository Affiliate. This means, if you purchase a book (or books!) from The Book Depository through THIS link, a small percentage of the money will go to my blog, at no extra cost to you. I promise that any and all money made from this will go into hosting giveaways to reward my wonderful followers! 

I am also an Amazon.com affiliate. It works the same as The Book Depository. You buy books through any of my links, (such as THIS one), and a percentage of the money goes to me. Any money made from this will also go towards giveaways! It can be ANY book that you purchase after clicking a link; it does not have to be the book I link to.

So, if you're planning on doing some book shopping any time, please consider clicking on one my links before doing so, to help me have great giveaways for all of you! Thank you!

  1. That was quite the month! Sixteen books you were a reading machine. I think I only did 12 but I company for ten days and that severely bit into my reading time. Great month for you!

  3. I love Waiting on Wednesday! Though that meme doesn't do my TBR pile any favours. With so many awesome books being showcased, it's difficult not to add them to the list every week. ;)
