Happy Birthday to Me and FFF #181

Hey, hey, it's my birthday!  So let's celebrate with this week's installment of Feature and Follow Friday!!!

Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow!  Well, I'm pretty new at this, so I'm all in!!!  

To join the fun and make new book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. (Required) Follow the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts {Parajunkee & Alison Can Read}
  2. (Required) Follow our Featured Bloggers
  3. Put your Blog name & URL in the Linky thing. You can also grab the code if you would like to insert it into your posts.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say "hi" in your comments and that they are now following you.
  5. If you are using WordPress or another CMS that doesn't have GFC (Google Friends Connect) state in your posts how you would like to be followed
  6. Follow Follow Follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "HI"
  7. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the Love...and the followers
  8. If you're new to the follow friday hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!

Question of the Week: Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! What books did Santa stuff your stocking with this holiday season? Do a holiday book haul for us! If you don’t celebrate just show off your books that you got this week. Pictures!!!

This is so funny, but I think this is the first Christmas in recent history where I haven't received a book!  My husband ALWAYS gets me a book!!!  And sometimes I even get myself a book, and wrap it up and give it to myself (hey, don't laugh, it's the only way I can make sure I get what I want!)  But, I did go to Prince George a couple of weeks ago and bought myself this:
The hardcover was on sale for $5.99!  

And when I ordered my son the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid book for Christmas, I went ahead and ordered myself: 

I've also been pretty good (or bad, depending on how you look at it) at getting books through Kobo whenever I get a good coupon or sale.  Today, I'm treating myself to:

Happy Birthday to me!

I would love it if you follow my blog!  Leave me a comment in the comments section, and I'll be sure to follow you back!!!
