Full to the Brim - Kid's Book Giveaway List (5/27/11)

Today is the last day of Armchair BEA, and I've enjoyed participating this week. I've talked about my love of Rhubarb cake, 2011 Children's Books and some tips for parents wanting to keep up with the ever changing children's book market.

The final Armchair BEA prompt is blogging about blogging. One thing I've learned about blogging is that there is never enough time to write about all that I'd like to write about, especially when it comes to books. I try to pick and choose our favorites and write about books that I think others will enjoy reading. Balancing life and blogging gets a little tricky sometimes, and in general, it seems I've started accepting fewer and fewer titles for review. Reviewing is easier if I'm writing about something that interests me and I enjoy.

Speaking of time, I've started to question whether or not my "Full to the Brim" posts are worth the time to compile. Do you like the list? Is it worth my time? I'd love your feedback today regarding this feature.

I apologize that today's list is rather short, but we have a busy weekend ahead of us. Please check out my other "Full to the Brim" posts as well. Many contests are still underway. I *try to* publish "Full to the Brim" every Friday. If I missed your book giveaway, feel free to mention it in the comment section or send me an email. Thanks for visiting my blog and come back soon!

I like the book giveaway round up posts, but if it is a hardship on you, take care of yourself first! :)

I think it is so cool to be able to find all this great information about giveaways in one place. I don't usually get to check out too many of the links, due to time, but I know that there are people out there who do appreciate the time you put into doing this. Perhaps you could cut it back to twice a month? That might help free up some of your time.
Have a great weekend!
