Apparently, November = the Month of Giveaways

In case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, which is totally unrelated to this one, but IS, in fact, a giveaway, here’s the link. Or you can scroll down. Either way. But first, you’re going to want to read this one.

Amusing story: A bunch of people I know decided THIS must be the lucky week to hold all types of November giveaways, and I (not paying much attention to important details like dates) signed up to do a few of them. Because, well, why not? Right? (This is not me jumping on a bandwagon so much as wanting to support my friends who are hosting events—TOTALLY different situation.)

So this is how I have come to be posting TWO separate giveaway posts in two days, and also how I will post one more next week.

For today’s opportunity to win, I will be offering a copy of Pride and Popularity by Jenni James. (And if I can track her down, I may even get it autographed.)

Check out this really adorable cover:

The blurb:

Chloe Elizabeth Hart despises the conceited antics of the popular crowd, or more importantly, one very annoying self-possessed guy, Taylor Anderson, who seems determined to make her the president of his fan club! As if! Every girl in the whole city of Farmington, New Mexico, is in love with him, but he seems to be only interested in Chloe. This modern high school adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is a battle of wits as Chloe desperately tries to remain the only girl who can avoid the inevitable falling for Taylor.

It’s easy to enter. Simply become a follower (see the upper sidebar) and then leave me a comment telling me one thing for which you are thankful this month.

And since I won’t be doing a giveback giveaway for November (sorry, my budget can only handle so much this month) , I’ll give you an extra entry if you tell me one nice thing you’ve done to give back to someone else. This thing can be big or small. (For some great ideas, check out this post and this one.)

This contest will close on November 11th. US shipping, only, please.

I'm thankful for my sweet, adorable, hilarious, hyper-active rugrats. They drive me absolutely crazy and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Thanks for the giveaway. I know it's usually everyone's answer, but I am most grateful for my family. They really do mean everything to me.

I am most thankful for my family, friends. I don't know if I or anyone can make it without both or at least one of those things.

It is hard for me to say what I do to give back, I think it is one of those things I do without thinking about it. It could be something as simple as picking up a check for a friend or buying treats for my co-workers, I don't really think about it, I just do it.

Thanks for the giveaway!! I hate to be cliche but I, too, am incredibly grateful for my children and hubby.

As for ways I give back -- you mean acts of service? Let's see, I'm a SAHM (that must count for something right?) If it doesn't count then last Sunday I brought dinner to a friend who just last their daughter and this Saturday I'm lecturing on interdependency relationships for FREE. :) Any of that count?

I'm writing a blog about paying it back from authors I've met. I'll post it later this week or next.

Angie said...

Only one thing I'm thankful for? I am thankful for a warm house and a heater that works. Oops. That was two. =) I gave money to the church humanitarian fund this week. Does that count?

Devony said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I'm grateful for my kids, my husband, my Savior, and for books that allow me to "get away" from life for a short time and enjoy another world! thanks for the great giveaway! I also love the idea of giving back to others. Yesterday I was in the store and a cute little old lady was trying to take a picture with her cell phone and send it to her granddaughter. She was hopelessly lost and I was able to help her do it. It was so much fun! We're also taking turkeys to a mission in our town for Thanksgiving so they can distribute them to people in need! thanks again! wilsondev(At)gmail(Dot)com

Thanks for participating in the hop and for your giveaway opportunity. I've overbooked my week before by promising friends too. Yikes!

I am thankful for simple pleasures, my husband, my family, job, home, health, my country . . .

As to an act of giving, I help an author that is just getting started and a person I have never met get set up for an interview that sold him a few more books and recognition for his book. I liked the feeling.

One thing I have done for the community is to sign people up for the adopt a family program. I have also been fortunate enough to be able to buy some food to donate to the food pantry for the Salvation Army that does so much good work. I think that I am the one that gains the most from these things as it gives me such joy to meet all these wonderful people and help them.

**I'd like to think I do things to give back to someone else. I dropped off food to my local food bank last week.

I am thankful for my husband who is part of my very soul. God Blessed me when he gave me my husband. I just know God hand picked him!
