Book Lover's Giveaway - Audible


                                         

Ya gotta LOVE Christmas season!!  I get this almost overwhelming build-up of all the things I ABSOLUTELY MUST DO!  Buried in my long list is "And have fun doing it!" which comes in a tone of voice implying "or else" 'cause it's Christmas!!

As much as I love the lights and pizzazz in the middle of winter, not to mention celebrating the birth of The Baby, there's this build-up of tension as my relaxing Time-To-Read gets smooshed.  The kids (you  can now exclaim, "she's so old!" and I get to growl "am not!") are back in school & the house is finally quiet and I am realizing December is short and I get to enjoy our Treasures (kids) for Christmas break too soon including (but not limited to) sugary-spikes of energy bursts & a birthday party & who-knows-what Expectations (met & unmet). It's enough to scare me into hiding 'til January except for that very important "AND HAVE FUN DOING IT!" requirement.

In light of all the FUN to be had, I am giving away an Audio book. 

It is coming from Audible.com, so there may be some important things you want to check out from their Terms & Conditions most notably, "Gift Audiobooks must be redeemed at Audible.com". You'll be able to download your book on your computer or listening device and, MOST IMPORTANTLY..... keep "reading" WHILE tackling all the Christmas FUN!!


If you actually read all that pre-amble while hopping around on a Giveaway Hop, I congratulate you... and offer you (and only you) the option of turning this book into a gift card to pass on or choose your Audible book later when you can decide. Now on to the good stuff...






 Welcome to the Book Lover's Holiday Giveaway Hop!!
Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Kid Lit Frenzy...

This is an Audio book giveaway from Audible.com - a downloadable book worth about US $19.oo!  (International may enter, check Audible.com for restrictions.)

Rules:


1 - be old enough to download a book off Audible.com

2 - "Follow" Colorimetry ( - remember the GFC is doing weird stuff & won't exist for non-blogger.com-er's come next March, so subscribing works or networking {scroll way down} or RSSing w/ Google-Reader or whatever. {Saddly, I don't have a FB or Birdie-thingy, yet.} Just let me know how you Follow.) 

3 - COMMENT on this post with the audible book you would like to win.

4 - You have my permission to share my giveaway on your blog.  :-D

  1. Fantastic giveaway, thanks for remembering your inernational readers!

    I follow via GFC (name silver thistle) but I subscribe via RSS and read my followed blogs in in Google reader.

    Never had a book from audible before so I'd have to have a root around on there to see which one jumped out at me...

    Great prize!

    I have a couple of books from Audible already. I use it to listen to the old classics that I'm never going to be able to get myself to sit down and read without difficulty. ;) So I'd pick a classic. I looked for Gone with the Wind but they don't have it, and my next choice would be Middlemarch.
