So remember how not too long ago, I posted about goodreads’ giveaways? Well, I won my first book! It’s called Death Is Not An Option, and it’s the next one I plan to read, after I finish Casino Royale. This actually has me really excited. It’s a bunch of short stories mized together, which is typically not the type of book I like to read, but I think it would be a good train ride read.
It’s funny how the word won makes you feel so happy. Though I didn’t need to do anything to win, just drop my name into a hat essentially, it still has me feeling like I’ve achieved something. And I think that’s why goodreads has such a large amount of giveaways. It makes the submitters feel really happy, which will most likely have a positive spin on the reading experience, and have the reader leaving a lovely, if not glowing review of the book.
This is why I plan on waiting before reading the books I read in the mail. Not because I think people take me seriously, far from it actually, but because it would make me feel better about myself. And really, isn’t that what we all strive to do?
