While waiting for our first official visit to the bungalow/cottage, I partook in some amusement. Awhile back, a friend introduced me to ‘Goodreads.’ I explored. I liked. I especially liked the free books this website offers in their giveaways. The idea is a good one: publishers and authors send free copies of their books with the hope that whoever receives the book will write a favorable review. Oftentimes, 800 people sign up for 5 free books, so the odds are against winning. I defied the odds.
I won. Perhaps it was the manic way I clicked on every possible selection, a gazillion books I promise to read if only they will send it to me free of charge.
I admit that I was so enamored of this weird free-for-all that I entered my first book ‘If the Boots Fit’ in a giveaway, and have received, happily, three favorable reviews in return. So, it works, just like they promised it might.
Can’t wait to receive, read and review my first Goodreads giveaway book. Also can’t wait to take that book (or a second one?) to the bungalow and sit out on the deck and read, hot cup of tea at my side.
Update*** I won another book. All those clicks are paying off. Please excuse me as I go click some more in the hopes of filling my summer reading list.
