This is late. I was unsuccessful at my attempts to obtain an ARC of Fragile Eternity. My father went to get it for me at the library today. So, I'm not entirely upset. I hope I can still find the other ARCs I'm looking for.

Found a new giveaway

I saw EA Sports Active in a Best Buy sale paper a couple of weeks ago, I think. It seemed like it might be nice. I thought the same thing about Wii Fit, but was unable to purchase it. Now, I might get a game just as good as it. Quirky Fusion has a nice giveaway going on. You have to comment about what you like about exergaming or an idea for a game. Then there are three opportunities for you to gain bonus entries.

Ends on April 30th.

See if you can win.

Ok, I lied

The title of this blog is a misnomer, and very misleading. This is my first blog, so, I shouldn't expect perfection. Take into account my alreally less than average existence, it's a blessing I've managed to stay committed to it. See, that's something I can't stand. Low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and of course, doubt.

At first, I was like, it's okay if I don't have anyone following me, or commenting on my blog. The reality is I do want people to comment. I want some reassurance that outside my family someone else finds me slightly interesting enough to care to entertain me, even a little bit. So, where are you people? Is this blog so completely, devastatingly boring that no one would care to glance at it?

Well, that's my rant for the day. I guess I'll keep trying. This feels like school again though. You put in the effort, but people still don't get... let me stop. This isn't high school, and I'm not a little girl anymore.

The next book I will read (I haven't forgotten about my declaration.) in addition to all the others I am currently reading, is How To Win Friends & Influence People. I think one of his most famous quotes from the book goes something like this

You will make more friends being interested in other people than by trying to get other people interested in you.

Completely ruined that. Sure, I could have quoted that better, but I haven't read the book yet, nor do I care to go searching for it. My books aren't in order right now. Besides I should be hunting for my ARCS (Haven't gotten hold of any yet). Well, I really should be getting some rest. That's the real reason. I still want my ARCS.

You shouldn't be ashamed of being a Twilight Fan

For some reason a lot of people do not like the Twilight Saga. You are more than welcome to feel that way. Whether you like the books or not, no one has the right to bash one another. Anyone can throw insults, if they choose, but I just don't see why. Be respectful.

Now on to what I wanted to talk about. I just found another, yes, another Twilight giveaway. Two actually, but I'll only talk about one for the moment. Over at Practically Sisters until April 14, tomorrow (sorry I just found it) to win a Twilight 2 Disc Special Edition DVD.

Good luck. Next time I'll try to find contests sooner.

Debbie's April Reader Contest

A friend recommended I read Doctor Texas. They didn't have it at my library; so, I decided to check out Debbie Macomber's website, and found a great prize. Since I like knitting this is an excellent find.

All you have to is sign her guestbook which will subscribe you to her newsletter.

Found the other day

I can't enter, but I'll find a way to get my hands on a copy. You might already know about this, but for those of you who don't, if you are between 12-17 you can win an ARC of Catching Fire among other great prizes.

Check out:

Good luck to all those who can participate.

Still trying to find an ARC of Catching Fire - Among other things

I've finally convinced my mom to read something I like. We started reading The Hunger Games yesterday. I was so excited. She seemed to enjoy what we read.

I am still trying to get an ARC of Catching Fire and now The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma. (I had no idea that there was a third book coming out in the fall. Even though it's meant for children, I love that series.)

Lastly, I found a new giveaway.

From Sweeties "Free Stuff" Swag Blog

You don't have to be a movie star to get free swag!

Sweeties Swag is the place for the best free magazines, free samples, free coupons, free food, and saving money on shopping, travel, dining out and more.

It's a nice tote. Hopefully, it will go to a nice person. Speaking of totes, the last time I checked on the Purex Saves Green Contest/Sweepstakes, my tote design still hadn't been placed on the site. I had an email saying awaiting approval, but that was nearly five days ago. I know, I should be more patient. That's something I have to work on.
