Like most writers I’m an avid reader. I’m never without a stack of books on my nightstand and usually have a book in my car or purse, too.
When you read a lot, it can be hard to keep of what you’ve read and what you want to read.
Enter Goodreads. It’s a delightfully easy way to track your reading, keep up with your favorite authors and discover new authors.
Goodreads also offers frequent book giveaways. Publishers ship the book directly to the winner and there’s no obligation to read or review.
I only enter giveaways if the book is something I really want to read or it’s by a favorite author. I’ve entered a lot of giveaways and last month I was notified that I’d won a copy of “Aunt Dimity & The King’s Ransom” by Nancy Atherton. I was beyond thrilled!
The “Aunt Dimity” books are exceptionally well-crafted, delightful British cozies and I haven’t missed one.
This week my doorbell rang and the UPS man handed me my copy of “The King’s Ransom.”
I admit it.
I hugged it. (At least I didn’t hug the UPS man.) Then I whooped. And might have hollered.
My teenager rolled his eyes, but I didn’t care. Books make me happy. And free books make me even happier!
If you haven’t joined Goodreads yet, you really should. You can follow your favorite authors *hint* Cindy Hval and connect with other readers.
Who knows? You may even win a free book
