I am participating in the Blogging From A-Z Challenge. Each day in April (except the last 4 Sundays), I will post topic themes that begin with the letters of the alphabet, from A-Z. Today's letter is S.
I was the recent recipient of some pretty sweet swag on Friday.
This, my friends, is what I received for being a book giver for World Book Night. As if this pin wasn't enough, they also gave me these glow-in-the-dark stickers & a few bookmarks.
I know you're all jealous, but fear not. You, too, could have stickers, bookmarks, and a pin of your very own next year. All you have to do is visit www.worldbooknight.org really early in the year (sometime around January or February) & sign up to be a book giver. If you're chosen, the swag is all yours. Of course, you shouldn't do it just for the prestige & fancy gifts. You should do it for the love of books & for the gratification you will get knowing you helped give books to someone who may not have read them otherwise. I think that's better than any swag.
I'm a thirty-something mom & wife. I over-think everything, then I blog about it. I write for myself, not because I believe everything I say is hugely important. I just hope maybe someone will read it & be entertained or inspired. At the very least, it makes me feel better to have somewhere to dump my thoughts & fulfill my urge to write.
