Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

Excited about my followers & a contest?

Woot! 92 followers? Awe shucks guys, thanks! It's only 32 days to my blogoversary. Will I make 100?

January will be giveaway month for me with a couple of international ones. I haven't figured out what or how yet but I've got a couple of weeks to figure out the specifics. I will add another winner if I hit 100 and maybe another if I hit 125!

If you're not US, does Amazon or Book Depository ship to you?

have a great day & happy reading,

The Book Depository ships to loads of international countries. They have a list on the site. (I think it started out as a non-US online store, by the by, but I'm not sure.) It also doesn't charge shipping costs, so it'll likely be cheaper than Amazon either way.

The only downside I have with TBD is that they don't send out "Your book was shipped!" notifications, which are things I really like to get. Amazon, as far as I know, ships to any country, but like as not you'll want to look around the various English-language versions to see which is cheapest for international deliveries.

Most other online stores I know of tend to charge you at least twice as much for shipping as for the book itself if you ship outside the US. (I only ever use them if I really want a specific edition and can't otherwise find a way to get my hands on it, because really it's insane.)

I hope that helps you some in deciding what to do with the giveaways you're planning!

Make that 93...I didn't realize that I wasn't following you officially...I have been following you in my reader for ages it seems!! lol

Heather Zundel said...

I should probably come out of the woodwork too I suppose. :) Got to help you make that 100.

Amazon ships to some countries.. as Spain :) but I would recommend you to use The Book Depository, it has free shipping! And it ships to a lot of countries too.

BTW just 6 more and you'll get 100 followers!

Thanks guys.

I didn't notice that about TBD but you're right, I'd get the book forgetting I had ordered it.

Congratulations! I know both sellers ship to my location because I've bought many from them. :D
