Welcome friends! I have started this entry in the global technosphere because I have been in love with books since the age of 2. Among the busy business of being a new teacher, this is my outlet for sharing thoughts on a love of reading a wide variety of books. My inspiration can be summed up with a yearbook quote from a teacher written when I was 8: "To the only girl at recess I see reading a book. Good for you!"
My blog title is quoted from a classmate who asked me this once. Believe it or not, I've also heard it as a teacher :D

50th Follower Giveaway!

Feeling like I'm floating on air...

A new milestone (x2, actually):  Trina @ An Old Flame has become my 50th follower.  A HUGE thank-you to all my followers!  I'm so thrilled that you enjoy visiting my blog.  As long as you keep coming, I'll keep writing :)  Also, I realized (unknowingly until today) that I have made 100 posts (this being #102).  Yay :D

I think this calls for a giveaway of some kind!  This will be my 1st giveaway, so bear with me as I am new to this.  I want to do something creative and with an honourable, rather than a tangible prize, so here's how this will work:

Whatcha Readin', Books? Giveaway

1)  You must have your own book blog.

2)  Create a post that includes the name of the giveaway, a link back here & a response of any length (though quality will be considered over quantity) to this question, which you may interpret any way you want:

What does reading mean to you?

3)  Post a comment here indicating that you are entering the giveaway & link to your response.

4)  You don't have to be a follower of this blog to enter but it would be nice :)

4)  The deadline for posting a response is Saturday, November 13, 2010 by 1:00 p.m. EST.  The winner will be announced on Sunday, November 14.

5)  The responses will be judged by me based on creativity, originality, expression & adherence to #1 & #2.

Now for the prize...The winner of the giveaway will receive:

~your blog button & a link back on my blog permanently
~a follow from me (if I'm not following already)
~a guest post--your blog or mine, the topics and/or questions up to you!

Good luck everyone & thanks again for following :D
