Feature and Follow Friday + Giveaway


Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

Wow, can it really be time for Feature and Follow Friday already? This has been a massive week for me, not only did I have a fantastic afternoon signing copies of Being Abigail at Collins Booksellers Edwardstown, but you can all expect a big, book related announcement from me soon. Anyway, as I'm sure most of you know, Feature and Follow Friday is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read designed to help like-minded bloggers connect. This week's all-important question is:

Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?


Ooh, I love buying books for other people. I love thinking about what the other person might like to read and enjoy, and then there is always that bit of hope where I think that perhaps this book will end up being their favourite, or at least one of their favourites. The last book I bought for someone though was a Stephenie Alexander cookbook, which I gave to my friend Carolyn (who is a very talented chef,) for her birthday.

Anyway, while I've got you all here, I have a couple of copies of Being Abigail left over from my signing, and I'd love to share them with my followers. If you'd like a copy, please enter via the rafflecopter widget below and I'll mail to anywhere in the world for the lucky winner. Good luck!

I gave a friens a book called "penny, picky, pippin, minka and max"
Very long title but a nice gentle horsey read :)

I know ~ I love that feeling when a person comes back and is completely in love with a book. A friend of mine recently turned into an avid bookworm in that way, and I love knowing that my recommendation is slightly responsible :). *New Follower*

Happy Reading :)

Aww, a cookbook! I've never been gifted one of those! Or gifted anyone one. Probably because I don't cook lol.

We self-pubbed a journal at our writers' group and I've given several copies away. Usually I just give out recommendations though since a lot of my reading's on kindle and kobo.

I love getting cookbooks. Even though I'm horrible in the kitchen at least I get to stare at the pictures. Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely weekend! :)

I went to the movies to see LES MISERABLES with a friend. She had never read the book, so I bought it for her birthday.

I love that title :-)

You're welcome Chyna. I look forward to visiting your blog shortly.
Kathryn White said…
You're welcome. There is always something a bit special about cook books, I think. Beautiful, glossy pictures and all the recipes waiting to be tried ...
Kathryn White said…
Lol. Will visit your Follow Friday.
Kathryn White said…
It's always fun giving away something that you've self-published and giving yourself the chance to share it with other people. I recommend a lot of books for others to read on their eReaders too ...
Kathryn White said…
Yep ... always a good feeling knowing that my recommendation was responsible.
Kathryn White said…
I agree--cook books are fun.
Kathryn White said…
Staring at the pictures is half of the fun. Hope you're having a lovely weekend too.
Kathryn White said…
Will check out your blogs shortly :-)
Kathryn White said…
And I hope she loved it ... though I have to admit, I've never read Les Miserables either. Maybe I should ...
