Jay will be joining me again this month for another round of He Said, She Said. This month we are going to be talking about Catching Fire, the second book in Suzanne Collins Hunger Games trilogy. Thanks again to Jay for being such a good sport and being willing to take part. <3
I was quite happy with how pretty my parcels for my August Giveaway went. I was not happy with how costly it is to ship stuff via Canada Post. (To clarify: it's not that I'm cheap. It's that I'd rather the money go to books then to Canada Post.) I will definitely be sending books via the internet.
But it got me thinking... I did love selecting a greeting card and bookmark to go with each prize and customizing them. This gave me an idea. Why not host a bookmark and card swap here? I'll be doing a more detailed post, probably later today, but I just wanted to give you all a heads up and see whether anyone was interested. Stay tuned for more details!
There are already some totally fantastic features out there to highlight the awesomeness of our book blog community. But I figure that one more can't do any harm. This is another thing where I'm throwing the idea out there to test the water. I'm sure I'll have something with more details up in the next few days.
The Books of October
I'm going to be a little lazy and just put up the covers of the books that I am anticipating this month. I'm sure there will be more that I just don't know about yet. Anyway...
There are four -- count 'em Four (I just realized the irony here...) -- giveaways going on here at I Write, I Read, I Review this month. Let's see, we have...
The Post of Awesome -- (Ends October 3rd!) Enter for your chance to win a copy of Carrier of the Mark or Lola and the Boy Next Door!
Best Book September -- (Ends October 17th) Enter for your chance to win a copy of Shut Out (or your choice of any book I've reviewed here on my blog.)
Zompacolypse Halloween Hop -- (Oct. 28th -- Oct. 31st 2011) I will be letting one winner select a book from the books chosen as winners during the Bleeding Hearts Awards.
Monster Mash -- (Oct. 26th -- Oct. 31st 2011) I will be letting one winner select a book from the books chosen as winners during the Bleeding Hearts Awards.

Whew! Two hours later I finally finish. So worth it, though. It just goes to show how awesome this October is going to be. So, what do you think? Anything here grab your interest? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
