Is It Time to Say Goodbye?

Is it time to say goodbye?

I have asked myself that question for the last year and a half. Why? Because I have notice the number of viewers/followers has decreased. The number of people taking part in the giveaways has dropped that I don’t think it’s fair to the authors/publishers to find out only a few comments about their books.

So I have decided to get rid of the giveaway program. I know that a few dedicated followers leave their comments on books whether there’s a giveaway or not and I will like to say a big thank you and that I’m very grateful.

Since I’m still behind in reviewing a few books, the giveaway program will last until the end of July 2016. It will be up to the authors/publishers if they want their books to be given away. Only then will I do a giveaway.

For the love that I have for books, I will still keep the blog running to only spotlight the author/book. If any author/publisher still interested please click on the link for more information.

I would like to say a big thank you to all my followers for their support and lovely comments about their love for books. Thank you for being a part of this blog. I will, once in a while surprise you with a free book. So watch out for my email.

Even without the free giveaway, please help support the authors by leaving a comment about their book when posted.

Thank you

  1. It’s not you, Ella, it’s me. (How often have we heard THOSE words in other context …) I’ve given up on most blogs for now just because of my time constraints.
    (But I’m not entering the contests, either – if I can’t hang out for the reviews, I don’t hang out for the freebies.)

  2. I’ve never met someone who does as much as you Ella to inform the public about books and does what you do to get books etc into children’s hands. I will still be here checking on the latest books and the Authors. I may not always comment due to a temperamental computer/Nook. But I’m always browsing. Thank you for all the books you have given away in the past though.

    • tmy56, you are a blessing. You have supported me when I really needed support. You sent me a box of school supplies to help with the school supply giveaways. Thank you so much.

  5. I am guilty of not commenting except on the giveaways but I do read the blog. (I am a subscrber.) Thanks for all you do. As a kindergarten teacher, I have discovered some awesome books and authors that my students and I enjoy.

  6. Ella, thank you for all the giveaways you’ve had. I know my son has enjoyed the books we’ve won from them. I’ve also learned about other books for him to read, through your reviews. I echo what the others have said, that I don’t always have time to read every post, but I do read most of them, but don’t always comment, sorry. I have a blog too and I know how much comments mean.

    • Thanks Brenda. I’m so glad your son enjoys the books. Thanks for all your support.

  7. I wish I had found this blog sooner, you have done wonderful things for us Authors and I am always around if you ever want any books donated for your surprise giveaways if you decide to go ahead with them.

  8. I just found your blog. I am so excited to share it with my kiddos. Reading is a passion I try to instill in them daily. I remember staying up late, reading under my covers with a flashlight…and pretending my parents didn’t know.
