Today's my birthday!!! I usually freak out a little over birthdays, but I'm not this year...at least not yet...hopefully it doesn't happen later today lol. I just have a feeling that this year is going to be great. :-) Today's the last day to enter my 400 follower/birthday celebration giveaway - the link is at the top of the blog and in the sidebar if you haven't entered already!

Follow Friday Fun Week 22: This weekly meme is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Check out their blogs for details/rules, and to join!  Also, be sure to check out this week's featured bloggers on each of the girls' sites!


This week's question: When you've read a book, what do you do with it? (Keep it, give it away, donate it, sell it, swap it..?)  
 
Well, most of my books come from the library, so I obviously return them. I’ve just recently started buying books again, but I try to only buy books I’m pretty sure I’ll love and want to keep. Same with books I win…I only enter for books I really, really want. Right now, I have a big pile of review books I’ve read that I’m going to donate to my library or the Diabetes Association for their next pick-up. I’ve also sold books to the used bookstore for credit and then bought new (used) books with the credit. I’d love to do giveaways for books I don’t want to keep, but can’t really afford the cost of shipping. Hopefully next year that'll change!
 
What do you do with your books once you've read them?
 
 
TGIF at GReads Week 18: TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads - be sure to check out her blog and join in the fun!


This week's question: Most Popular: What blog post has gotten the most comments/activity on your blog this year?
 
That would be the post about the 2011 Spooktacular October Paranormal Reading Challenge. I had 74 comments on that one, and an unbelievable turnout for the challenge (270 paranormal reviews in the month of October). I was so thrilled. I can’t wait to do it again in 2012 and hopefully have more in the way of activities and giveaways!

What was your most popular blog entry?

 
Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all had a terrific week!
