I was pottering about on twitter yesterday, as you do, when I saw someone mention the new Sweet Valley High book, Sweet Valley Confidential. It took me back. For a little while, as a teen, I obediently read the teen shelves in our little local library. Then I got bored, and wandered off in science fiction and fantasy, but I read a lot of Sweet Valley books in the meantime. And I quite fancy reading this new one, just for old time’s sake.
Is that terrible? I don’t think so, not really. Amusing though, when I think how I’ve ranted about Big reading Rainbow Fairies 😀
So I decided I’d hold a little giveaway, in aid of the build a library #100books thing. I’m really grateful to the ppl who’ve supported it so far, either by donating direct, or by using an amazon link in one of #100book reviews to shop. Those click throughs have generated nearly £10 which I’m going to pay in to the fundraising. On top of that, I’m giving away £10 Amazon voucher to someone who comments on here to tell me their literary #guiltysecret.
Come on, ‘fess up. What do you still read that you suspect you shouldn’t? Who is your favourite trashy author, or comfort read when nobody is looking? What don’t you want to admit to in public from your teen years?
I’m supplying the amazon voucher out of my own purse, and the second thing I’d really love for you to do is to spread the word about my fundraising. Tweet this post (there’s a handy button just there) or one of the many #100book reviews, stick it on fb or mention it on your blog. I’m not requiring you to do this as a condition of entry, but I’m asking you to help out. I’ve still a long way to go to raise the money for the library, and every little helps.
Am happy to convert the voucher to some other currency if the winner is not UK based, so as long as there is an Amazon (or indeed other internet bookseller) that I can buy a voucher from to give you, you can enter. Check that bit out for yourself though. Giveaway runs until midnight 22nd April, winner to be drawn randomly from commenters on this post, my decision is final. Amazon links in #100book reviews and this post are affiliate links, and any money made from them will be contributed through to the charity fund.
