Where’s Donna? – And a Holiday Giveaway

~*~*~*~*~*~* This giveaway is now closed ~*~*~*~*~*~*

2 more days until Christmas!!!

With the holidays in full swing, my posts here at Fantasy Dreamer’s Ramblings will be sparse and my online time will be limited from now until the end of this year. The reason, I have family visiting from out of state and out of country. I’ll be hanging out with them at my parents’ place and they don’t have internet. But I’ll be popping in here and there around the blogosphere with some sporadic posts here, when I am at home.

bookswithabow Holiday Giveaway:

In celebration of the holidays, I’d like to giveaway to three (3) book peeps a book of their choice up to $20 in value each. Yep, that’s right – You pick the book you want as long as it has released by the end of this giveaway.

  1. Tell me in the comments of this post the title and author of the book you’d like to win.
  2. One entry per person.
  3. Open to anywhere The Book Depository ships.
  4. Leave your email in the comments if it is NOT a part of your profile.
  5. Deadline to enter is December 31st at midnight CST.
