Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop! This Hop is hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and Page Turners Blog and runs from May 25 - 31.

This is my first Blog Hop and I'm excited to be participating. It is because of previous blog hops that I have discovered so many great book blogs and been inspired to start my own blog.

For my first hop (and my first giveaway) I will be giving away a copy of Delirium by Lauren Oliver. I will be posting my review soon, but I have an extra copy to share.

Entering is simple. Just leave a comment telling me that you want to win and please include your e-mail so I can contact you. One mandatory entry, no bonus entries, although I appreciate followers. I will be picking one comment at random to win. US only please. Winner will be contacted on June 1st and will have 48 hours to respond.

Thanks for stopping by, and make sure to visit all of the wonderful blogs along the hop!

Belated Introduction

I don't know why it has taken my so long to finally start a blog. I am not new to the concept of sharing my thoughts online. For years I had a Diaryland account, then I moved on to LJ. Both I just let sort of fizzle out. But this blog will be different. I began this blog because I was inspired by all of the amazing book blogs out there. I love reading book reviews. My bookshelf is ever-expanding, and I needed some inspiration for tackling my never-ending "to-read" list. I love to read, but I feel like I never have anyone with which to discuss books. I don't care if I have one person reading or one thousand, I just want to be able to express my ideas about books. I really don't limit myself to what I read, so be ready for anything. I plan on joining some challenges to expand my reading repertoire. I have a few in mind already (steampunk, dystpoian, and zombies to name a few). If you've taken the time to read this at all, then thank you. I hope that I can provide some insight for you, just as other book blogs do for me.
