August 31 is “Buy a Friend a Book Day” and I am celebrating by sending three of my friends surprises in the mail. Okay, one already knows because I could not keep quiet but the other two have no clue. So, that is this day that I speak of? Hallmark doesn’t have any cards out about it and you won’t see any advertisements on the TV about it. But, to us who read and love “our” authors, it’s kind of a big deal.
Lisa A. Kelley , the hostess of this year’s world-wide event describes it.
“It’s simple. Buy a friend(s) a book today. Any book you want. Introduce your friend to a new author or series, or buy your friend a book that she / he has been wanting! It’s that easy. Just buy a friend a book!”
So, yes. Simple. I have decided to pull three titles from the group of ladies who call themselves the Cozy Chicks. These ladies are amazing and have been super amazing to me on my newly launched adventure as a book reviewer and blogger. Why am I not sending one of each from the authors. Easy, I am reading them and didn’t buy double of every ones. You can’t expect me to give up MY collection, can you? Ha, nope. So, these are three I have in my collection that I got doubles of just for this event that I know my friends will like.
Well, time for you to go sign up, buy a book or five and share your love of reading with your best friend, significant other, child or even your fur-baby. Happy August everyone. Please post in the comments what YOU are doing for this momentous day.
