I'm hoping the Glister makes it up here to Canada! You're going to love the Amy Sedaris! It's hilarious.

You got some good cookbooks! I'll be looking for your Confetti Cakes giveaway.

Wendy said...

I also snagged The Glister - looks scary!

Serena said...

this sounds like a great gift idea: Confetti Cakes for Kids by Elisa Strauss!

Wendi, it looks like our links got hung up in comment moderation at The Printed Page.

I've been wanting to read I Like You since it came out!

I'm seriously thinking about ordering that one as a Christmas gift for myself!!!

Tweeting is what its called when you post msgs to Twitter.

Several of the Hachette imprints are pretty active on Twitter and do giveaways to the first so many to Tweet back at them following instructions.

I've got about 3-4 books that way so far.

Yes I get the book data off Amazon's listing. The page counts don't always agree from one bookseller to another and I've also noticed Barnes data shows Doubleday religious instead of Multnomah or Waterbrook for books pubbed by those imprints not sure why but I like that Amazon shows the specific imprint for books.

I try to post all the important specs when I put up a book review or reference a book in posts like Mailbox Monday so readers can easily find it on Barnes or another bookseller.

I've been eagerly awaiting Before the Season Ends as I love regencies and historicals of most any era really. I wanted that one from the moment I saw it on Deena's blog well before it came up for Wildcard but when it did of course I jumped LOL.

Looks like you got quite a few exciting books as well.

Whoo-hoo, you got lots of exciting-looking books! I'm still hoping I'm going to get The Help (although I have no recollection what it's about at the moment!).

Anna said...

What a great list of books! I'll be getting Katie Brown Celebrates hopefully soon. I want to gift it to my hubby since he loves those types of books. Happy reading!
