Hello everyone! Thanks so much for getting this series off to a great start. You all read a lot of books last month. I'm working on getting the 2011 reads page updated with all the entries.
Just one word regarding the forms for the books read and giveaway. Since I'm trying to do at least one giveaway per month, I will close the form after the month ends. If you didn't get a chance to enter the books you read that month before I close the form, you are welcome to enter it on the current form however please don't mark that you want an entry for the giveaway. Please only mark that if you are listing a book read that month. So, for example, if you read a book in April but haven't filled out the form you, you won't be able to enter it on the April reads form. Instead, enter it on the May Reads form however don't enter the giveaway for May. I am closing the form because I don't want people filling it out and entering the giveaway when the giveaway is closed. Hopefully this won't confuse anybody but if it does please let me know.
Please use this form to let us know what book(s) you have read for this challenge in May. The giveaway is only for May, so please enter by midnight May 31st (central time) for a chance to win.
I'm happy to report that I have two giveaways this month! Anybody who reads at least one book is ellligable for both giveaways.
The first one is for Following Polly by Karen Bergreen. I haven't read anything by Karen Bergreen before but Following Polly sounds good and I thought cozy readers would enjoy it.
The second one is for Flowerbed of State by Dorothy St. James. This is another Berkley release and since the publisher is offering this book for review, I'm once again allowing readers an extra entry if they read at least one book for this challenge (for this month) from the same publisher. So..get out your Berkley Prime Crime, Signet, and Obsidian series and get reading!
Only the first two pieces of the form are required, the rest are optional. However, if you do enter the giveaway please include a mailing address so I can give it to the publishers once a winner is selected.
