Photo A Day (Weekends) and 30 Day Book Challenge (9)

Sunday, September 09, 2012

To post every day of the month, I found this awesome activity at Fat Mum Slim and decided to try it.

I will be posting my photo that I capture every day, but WITH A CATCH.  Since there are several planned giveaways for that month, I am offering you a chance to get some extra entries. 

Something you do most Weekends: I didn't want to take a picture of homework, even though in reality that is what I do most of the time during weekends.  However, a small sliver of time is taken up by catching up on my favorite TV shows.  Some of them include Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, Once Upon a Time, and Vampire Diaries.  What do you do on weekends?

I have made up my mind to also join yet another challenge, 30 Day Book Challenge from Jude at In Between, this one about books (so you won’t think I am abandoning my life-long passion).  This is a site about books, is it not?  

I do remember I have offered you extra entries to all the contests this month.  Therefore, if you play along with the challenge too, then you getthree extra entry points.  That’s right, three points! 

All you have to do to get those extra points is tell me in the comments, what are your favorite quotes about books?

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”
