Introducing: Follower of the Month!

Hey my lovlies! I hope you are all getting ready for an awesome month of December! I am just happy that I can play Christmas music now! Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and I can't WAIT for the end of this month! In the spirit of the holidays, I am going to be starting a new regular giveaway on the blog. It is called "Follower of the Month"...pretty easy to remember yeah?

Much like an Employee of the Month, if you are the Follower of the Month, you will get your picture posted on the "wall" meaning my sidebar. I will also feature you in a post, and if you run a blog I will definitely link back. This is just a way for me to show my appreciation for all of you readers, to get to know some of you better,  and to let you guys get to know each other too.  And...what better way to show my appreciation than to give the Follower of the Month a book of their choice? That's right, if you are the FOM, you get to choose a book up to 10$ from Amazon or the Book Depository! This means internationals are free to be the FOM as well! As long as the Book Depository ships to your country, all things are good! Sound good to you? It better :P

SO. How do you get to be Follower of the Month? Simple...leave the most comments on non-giveaway posts in any given month! That means reviews, interviews, memes, discussion posts, everything that DOES NOT have a giveaway attached to it will earn you a point! The follower at the end of the month who has been a comment demon will get to pick out a book to treat themselves with! Oh...PS. Only MEANINGFUL comments please. I hate to say it, but I feel like if I don't then someone will just leave a comment on every post saying. "Nice!" and that won't count. I am doing this to stimulate discussion, conversation, and general awesomeness among all my followers...not to just gain cheap comments.

So that's that! I hope you guys are all gearing up for Christmas or Hannuka or whatever particular flavor of holiday you favor. I have a lot of plans for this month and am hoping that it brings you joy, happiness, and books in time for the new year!


  1. great initiative, thank you for organizing this

  2. what a wonderful idea. I am super excited for christmas also. My husband has had the christmas radio station on in the car since thanks giving!

  3. So have I! The boytoy gets so mad at me!...I have a "favorite" Christmas playlist and have been listening to the same 15 songs non-stop...I think he's about to kick me out of his apartment :} lol

  4. I am really looking forward to Christmas. Not only is it my favorite holiday, but it's also my and my husband's anniverary.

    He always jokes that when we have kids, they are going to hate us. I have already decided from the wee hours of the morning until mid afternoon, it is Christmas for the kids. But late afternoon/evening, anniversary night.

    This is such a nice feature to have your blog. I desperately wish I had the funds to do giveaways for my blog. Next year, I'm going to start vamping up my blog.

  5. I love this new feature on your blog and I'm sure you will get a lot more comments and discussions going now too.

    I like Christmas alright. It's not my favorite holiday and this is the first Christmas without my mom, so it's going to be harder for me. I've never been a fan of Christmas music, so I don't listen to the radio at this time of year...I am most thankful for the youtube
