I am participating in the Back to the Books Giveaway Blog Hop, hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Bookhounds. This hop is scheduled to run September 1st through 7th . To enter, all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment at the end of this post, letting me know you are a follower and sharing your favorite thing about back to school. It might be the hint of fall in the air, shopping for clothes and shoes, the scent of a freshly sharpened pencil, or baking chocolate chip cookies for after-school snacks. I am looking forward to a great list! For additional entries, you can follow me on Twitter (click HERE), “like” my Facebook fan page (click HERE) or friend me on Goodreads (click HERE). Leave an additional comment for each additional entry. At the end of the week, one lucky winner will be chosen by a random number generator to receive a $10 Amazon gift card. Be sure to leave your email address with your comments so that I will know how to contact you should your name be selected. Click HERE for the links to 200 or so other blogs that are also doing book-related giveaways. All contests begin at 12:01AM Eastern time tonight (Saturday morning); any entries received prior to that time will not be included in the drawing.
