I've recently discovered My Friend Amy's Book Blogger Appreciation Week.
I can't remember how I first discovered Jen Robinson's Book Page, but I quickly became a devotee. Jen reviews countless numbers of books for children, middle-grade and young adult, as well as rounds up kids' book news from around the blogosphere. After reading some reviews, I came to respect her opinions and suggestions.
And then, just when I thought I couldn't love her any more, she started a series called "Reviews That Made Me Want the Book" (RTMMWTB - listed below). These books quickly filled my Paperback Swap and Barnes & Noble wishlists, and some have eventually found it to my bookshelf.
In honor, then, of Jen, and BBAW, I'm holding a give-away. Choose the two titles from Jen's RTMMWTB series which most appeal to you, and list them in the comments. I will choose a name randomly on Friday, September 19 to receive the prize.
To get additional entries for the giveaway, you can do one or any of the following, as long as you come back here and tell me where I can find it:
1. put your two RTMMWTB titles in a post on your blog
2. go over and check out Jen's blog and leave a comment over there
3. post information about the In Search of Giants giveaway on your blog
4. go over and check out My Friend Amy's blog and leave a comment
5. recommend a book you haven't read but like because of the reviews.
DEADLINE: September 18.
PRIZE: I will purchase and have mailed to you any two books from any place on Jen's site. (That's a whole lotta choices.) Limit $25. Pre-orders okay for unreleased books. Book choices must be made by Monday, September 22.
Here's the "Reviews That Made Me Want the Book" series - enjoy!!
