  • Work on series posts.
  • Write guest posts.
  • Put out invitations for guest posts.
  • Conduct and edit author interviews.
  • Create template posts for your future reads (ie: title, images, linking, tags, etc,) so you can open up, write review and post without being bogged down with technicalities
  • Clean up your tags, archives, books reviewed list, etc.
  • Improve your blog template, clean up sidebars, add a favicon, install those plugins that you’ve been meaning to do.

  • Any bloggy type housekeeping that you’ve been neglecting.

Boy do i have alot of work to do! So what are my Bloggiesta goals?

  • Post some new reviews.
  • Review book to movie.
  • Rearrange items.

Awesome book contest at Book Room Reviews

Posted by bookinn on July 31, 2008

BookRoomReview GiveAway!

BookRoomReview GiveAway!

They are offering a whole set of books!

The details from the blog:

Here are the Details:

For every Fifty entries ONE name will be drawn, up to FIVE people!  So if we end up with 250 entries then I will be able to pick FIVE winners, so the more people you encourage to come here to enter means more people will win!    Hachette will send each of you your box of books directly.  Sorry- rest of the world,   this contest is only open for U.S. and Canada.    All entries must be in by midnight August 9th because I really want to draw FIVE winners on my birthday which is August 10th!    I love to give books and what better way then on my birthday!    I wish we could give books to everyone!    Oh one more thing!    If we hit the 500 mark since Hachette also is the publishing company for Stephanie Meyers, I will draw one more winner to win a copy of Breaking Dawn!  Yeah!!!  So that’s six winners!    Five will get the set of fourteen books and one will get a copy of Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer. (Hint: don’t worry if we don’t hit 500, I’m sure there will be six drawings! )

Sounds pretty awesome, hope i win one !
