Autumn is rolling along and I’m starting to realize that once again I won’t get all the books read in 2019 that I wanted to… Do you go into ‘autumn panic’?
This year has been a memorable one for our family. Several of us have been in and out of hospital – three surgeries between us and another one pending…
It is the time of year when we start to think of closing up our summer cottage for another year. I must say that this is always bittersweet as the gardens are usually at their best in Sept.-Oct. This year won’t be so difficult to leave the place as Hurricane Dorian pretty much demolished both the flower and vegetable gardens. Oh well… there is always next year.
I am delighted to report that there are now 3,613 people following this blog. Heartfelt thanks to all who take the time to read my posts, leave a comment or two, and share my posts on other social media. I appreciate you all.
As I am coming ever nearer to the magical 4000 number I want to pick your collective brains. I want to host an international giveaway when I reach 4000. It is my intention to giveaway an Amazon gift card. In the past I’ve had issues with trying to deal with Amazon. For instance, once an author gifted me with a gift card for Amazon.com which was not eligible for use in Amazon.ca
How do you get around the ‘international’ aspect? How do you purchase an Amazon gift card for a country other than your own? For instance, if the winner of my giveaway lives in Australia for instance, can I purchase an Amazon gift card from Amazon.com.au if I live in Canada?
I’d be grateful for any advice you are able to share.
Despite having a lull in my reading during my hospital stay and recovery, my Goodreads Challenge is doing okay.
I’m sure that I’ll complete the challenge, but I’m not sure I’ll get all the specific titles read that I had planned.
I’m hanging on to my NetGalley 80% badge by the skin of my teeth…
My Edelweiss feedback ratio has improved a tiny bit
Many of you have inquired about my baby grandson. I’m delighted to report that he is thriving and has stolen our hearts.
