Books ! Yay !


A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to win books of my choice at a book giveaway. The books were to be ordered and delivered via the Book Depository. I was a bit hesitant at first because I have no knowledge about how fast Book Depository ships to the Philippines and of course there is this thought that the books will get lost in the mail somehow. But the opportunity to win books is too good for me to pass up.

Anyway, when I received the email informing me that I won, I immediately visited Book Depository’s website and started browsing through the available books that they have. I was overwhelmed by the variety of books ; I had a hard time deciding which ones to pick. 

I finally decided on these :

It only took a little over two weeks for the books to arrive; I was surprised because I thought it would at least take a month. I am actually thinking of ordering some more books, especially those that they have on sale (new books,especially the new releases, are quite expensive here). My son has been browsing the site as well and he is making a list of the books he wants.

So, I guess you all have an idea of what I’ll be doing this weekend, huh ?

Have a great weekend everyone and happy reading !

Getting Lucky

One of the things that I love doing these days is joining online contests. I am always on the lookout for giveaways to join. And I became more enthusiastic about joining these giveaways when I started winning on some of them. Sure, I may have won one in every dozen of contests I have joined, but still, the chances of winning is bigger if I actually participate in them, right?

Anyway, I am truly happy about winning on some of them. Here are just some of my recent winnings:


Make or Break’s Biogesic Giveaway



Mom Fashionista’s Naturally Healthy & Beautiful Giveaway

Pasko sa Agosto – Swarovski Ruby Bracelet Giveaway
by JanzCrystalz Handcrafts

Brown Pinay’s Pasko sa Agosto $15 Paypal Cash Giveaway

I have also won Fotolia subscriptions wherein I can download photos, illustrations and vector images for free and some other prizes from international giveaways.

Lucky ? Could be. But I see them as blessings and I truly appreciate each and everyone of them regardless of their monetary value.

I hope you will all have a great weekend ahead. I have to go for now, I still have some giveaways to join….Winking smile
