Back in mid-December, Ben from Dead End Follies tweeted that the first person to answer him back would get a free book. I love free and I happened to be doing nothing better with my Saturday than sitting online so I won that contest. Ben won the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson in a giveaway but already had a copy so was kind enough to put me in touch with Elise. Hooray for more books!
Since getting my Kindle I've bought 1 eBook, Bryson's At Home and acquired 4 actual books: Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore, Soul of the Age by Jonathan Bate and now Speak. Thus far the eReader has done nothing to quell the number of books I'm buying.
This also makes me want to get to hosting my own giveaway soon. If anyone has any tips for a giveaway, please let me know!
