Holli and I got our library cards renewed today! I've really been getting back into books again lately, and as much as I love to buy them, they are expensive and I don't have any income right now. But then I remembered this awesome place called the Orem Public Library! Ha ha. So Holli had today off and we went and did it. Holli wasn't in the system, but I was from back in the day and apparently I had late fees. Boo. And they made me pay them! $11.08 from 1998. Yes, 1998. I was in 8th grade when I racked those up and over ten years later they made me pay them. Lame, but whatever I can rent books now. So I got Escape by Carolyn Jessop, Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen, and Stolen Lives by Malika Oufkir. I'm pretty excited about them. I am going to start with Escape first, my friend Jayni recommended it to me ages ago and said it was really interesting so I'll do a review once I'm finished. I finished Loose Girl and may or may not do a book review for it this weekend. There's a small one on my Goodreads profile if anyone is interested.
So along with my renewed love for books, I decided it would be fun to do a giveaway of one of my handmade books and a handmade beanie in celebration of the fall season! Yay! So, in order to qualify for the giveaway you just have to become a follower of my blog (link on the right) and leave me a comment introducing yourself, or just saying you're now a follower. If you're already a follower just leave me a comment saying hi. The giveaway will end one week from today on Thursday, October 29th @ midnight. I'll submit the comment numbers to Random.org to generate the winning number and I'll announce who it is Friday morning. Sound good? Oh, I guess you'll want to see what you are "following" for right?
Here's what I'm giving away-
Cute huh!? I made each of them with my own two hands - so you know they're good. The book was hand bound with a coptic stitch and the beanie was knit with high quality green yarn. I want to get to 100 followers so spread the word about the fun giveaway!
