I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

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!

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
