Woohoo! What a vacation! Vacation Giveaway!(Closed)

I am back from vacation...

It was a long one. I made it through the heat wave in NYC. I endured NJ's Traffic. I was Patriotic in D.C. I hiked to some waterfalls in PA and relaxed in one of the Bay's in RI.

All in all I had an amazing time.
Here are some pics from the trip...Sorry none are of me. Most of my pics are of me and my son(hubby too) I prefer not to post his pics online to much.  I love photography. I hope you all enjoy the pictures.



I am excited to return and get back to book reading. For those 2 weeks away I only had a chance to read 2 books and listen to 1. What a shame. (Who cares it was vacation) LOL


While in NYC I stopped by Strand Book Store and picked up a few goodies for one lucky winner.


What you could win:
ARC Dragons of Noor; Janet Lee Carey


ARC The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall; Mary Downing Hahn


I Heart NY t-shirt
Book Light
Strand Pin
Strand magnet
A Strand bag (yes it's their shopping bag but it's so sturdy)(no It's not used)

You must be 13+
US Only

Fill out this form


Side information Don't forget The Hunted of 2060 Giveaway is ending on the 15th and Ami has added a limited addition to the giveaway. So there are 2 chances to win!
