Swag from authors & publishers

Got tons of awesome swag from authors that I love! Most of them are signed and i'm giving adding some of them to my blogoversary giveaway, along with a few ARCs and finished copies.

Massive thanks to Stephanie Keyes, Dot Hutchison, HarlequinTeen, C.L. Pardington, Kathleen Peacock, Jeri Smith-Ready, and Katie McGarry ♥


Kobo Glo

So i finally crossed over to the dark side- and I am now the proud owner of a Kobo Glo! I've been thinking about getting an e-reader for months now, and i'm really happy with the Kobo. I can now easily read galleys from Netgalley and Edelweiss without straining my eyes too much. The only downside is that I can't read all the kindle books I got from Amazon. 

What did you get this week? Leave a link to your post and i'll stop by!
And since you're here, feel free to stop by my ongoing giveaways:

  9. Awesome! I recently got a Kobo Glo as well and I will be posting my review soon. Isn't it great? I love the fact that you can read in the sun and the special nightlight is the best thing I've ever seen :D

    If you use Calibre, I believe you can convert all the e-books you got from Amazon :) Just find the folder from Kindle, select the books and bring them to Calibre. If you connect your e-reader to your PC, you can sent the books through Calibre to your Kobo.

    Happy reading!

  17. OhMiGosh I've never coveted so much in my life. Lots of goodies you have this week! Congrats on finally getting an e-reader. It took me a long time to get one also. When my Mom finally bought it, I posted pictures of me using it on ALL my social networks. *lol* My little brother teased me about being a dork. But I'm so happy I got one now. There's so many great ARC's and freebies out there I was missing out on. It's been awhile since I've visited and I absolutely LOVE the new look of your blog. Very sleek! Happy Reading.

A friend of mine has that one and loves it. I'm a Kindle baby, and only because Kobo doesn't offer the greatest deals here in Canada, lol. I hope you love all your books this week!
