In celebration of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, I'm hosting a special giveaway. The book blogger's life isn't always easy. You see, lots of times we write posts and reviews and then, well, people may read them but they sure don't always comment. (Unless the review involves a giveaway). Oftentimes it appears that our hard work is all for naught, when actually that's not the case at all.
This past weekend I wrote a review for a book called Legacy by 16-year-old author Cayla Kluver. No one commented. Now it's possible you have an aversion to princesses or maybe you were all off pursuing your own knight in shining armor/lady in waiting. Or maybe not. Most likely, many of you read the review or at least glanced at it and went on to the next post, the next blog. And there's nothing wrong with that. I'm guilty of lurking as well. But, I'll share a little secret with you. I tend to pay more attention to the comments on my non-giveaway posts because the volume isn't as high.
So, as a reminder to myself and others to take the time to comment more often and to encourage a little book blog comment love, here's a giveaway and a challenge.
Two Brimful Curiosities readers will each receive:
(1) copy of Legacy courtesy of AmazonEncore.
(1) Book of your choice under $20 (I'm offering this in celebration my blog's one year anniversary this month. Hooray!)
To enter, read my review of Legacy and leave a comment on this post relevant to my review.
BONUS BBAW challenge entry: Visit any book blog and leave a comment on one of their non-giveaway book reviews. Then leave a comment here with the blog name and title of the book. (Example comment: I visited Book Nut and left a comment on "The Beef Princess of Practical County")
