Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop

Hello my darling dolls!

I proved to myself today that I suffer from -word vomit-. Ask a simple question? You probably shouldn't expect a simple answer from me. What's worse is that I realize halfway through my answer that I'm talking too much and stop without completing my thought.  Then,  I realize it sounds strange that I just stop and I try to start again, attempting to find a legitimate thought track to follow. By this point I'm flustered and coherent speech is beyond my capability.

The above means that I sometimes come off as completely awkward and totally incapable of casual human conversation. My friends and family will probably tell you this is not true... though they might give up that I have a habit of yack-yacking incessantly if I've had too much caffeine.

Why did I tell you this? Well... I've had too much caffeine.

Now, away we go from that completely RANDOM jibber-jabber on to the real purpose of this post.


This hop is all about clearing your shelves for the new year and allowing others to benefit from the purge! I have a few books from my own bookshelf that I'll be giving away for this hop. So, enjoy!

Giveaway Prizes
