Fool for Books Giveaway Hop (March 31 to April 7)

UPDATE: Winners will be announced soon!

I’m glad you stopped by to help celebrate Spring with a Fool for Books Giveaway Hop! All week long you can hop around from blog to blog and scoop up some great book-related prizes without leaving the comfort of your own home. This exciting event was organized by Inspired Kathy of the I Am A Reader, Not A Writer Blog.

The hop will run from Sunday, March 31, to Sunday, April 7th, at 11:59 pm. Do you remember how it works? You can enter my giveaway and then hop to any blog on the linky list (at the end of this post) to see what they’re offering. Who knows what wonderful prizes are out there?

The Doorkeeper Prize: I’m giving away TWO $10 Amazon Email Gift Cards. That means two winners! Just to show my appreciation for those of you who follow and visit my blog! I will email the winners on April 9th and post their names after they respond.

Steps to enter . . .

1. For your mandatory entry, leave a comment on this post. 2. In that one comment, you can list any bonus entries you’ve completed. You don’t need to leave separate comments. (Since I do have to moderate some comments—especially if you’re new to the blog—don’t worry if your your comment doesn’t show up right away.)

**Also, I believe you have to enter your email address in order to comment. Though you can’t see your email address here, I can view it from my blog dashboard. So don’t feel you need to write your email address again in your comment

Bonus Entries:

Now are you ready to hop somewhere else? Remember—these blogs aren’t necessarily inspirational but are family friendly. And all prizes are book related.

  72. April Fools Day! April fools always seems to come and go without any practical jokes played. This year, however, my parents decided to play a prank. My 62 year-old parents! Well, they purchased a very realistic-looking fake tarantula and placed it on the toilet seat. When lifted the lid, I was in for a surprise. Instead of freaking out, like my parents hoped I would, I just cursed and then asked who’s idea it was. I’ve never played a practical joke on April Fools. I need to get more creative and think of someone who would really appreciate it. Up until this year, I would’ve never thought my parents would be the practical joke-playing type! By the way, did anyone see Len Goodman from DWTS play a practical joke on gymnast, Aly Raisman and her partner, Mark. I was stunned and then laughed my ass off.
    Thanks for the giveaway and I hope you had an uneventful April Fools Day!
