Black Friday Blog Hop! CONTEST!

Thanks again as always to the awesome Carrie Ann Ryan 
for holding this fun hop!

While the rest of the US is out handling the crowds, fighting for their holiday gifts, some of us like to stay in, shop online, or just ignore Black Friday all to together. This year, join us in our second annual Black Friday Blog Hop! It's a ONE DAY hop where we're giving away prizes, talking about books we love, and most likely  eating left over turkey. :-)

The hop is November 23rd and is ONE DAY only.

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that's not all....

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!
Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $75 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more!

TODAY I'm giving away a NO FLOWERS REQUIRED (US only please!) swag pack to one winner and an ebook copy of the book to another international winner! 

I'd intended to give this away to another winner earlier this fall, but with no way to contact them, I'm offering it up for grabs again!

Want to read an excerpt of NO FLOWERS REQUIRED, book 2 in the Love Required series? Click HERE

Here's what's included:

Cari Quinn Totebag featuring items from No Flowers Required: Moonstone Toe ring, Butterfly Window Suncatcher, small model replica of the Harley-Davidson Dillion rides, signed print copy of Insatiable, Cari Quinn pen/magnet

One International winner will win an ebook copy of NO FLOWERS REQUIRED!

How do you enter?

Oooo this is hard for me! Hrmm, can I put a house in the cart? Guess that wouldn't fit so I would have to go with a new TV/DVD combo for the family.

If it was just for me I would say books or a laptop. But knowing me it would in reality probably be groceries.

I would be filling a cart with electronics. E-readers, i-pods, smart phones, TV's etc.! Plus gift cards to fill the devices with content. Of course someone else would be paying for this, right?! I like shopping from home except for clothes. Thanks for the giveaway!

Nay Nay said...

I would grab the IPad3, a MAC laptop, a new slow cooker, shoes for the hubby and me, groceries and the rest of the cart would be full of gift cards. I am a GFC follower: Nay Nay. This is the BEST way to spend Black Friday. Sitting at home, hopping with old friends and making new ones. I can't handle the crowds anymore so I only do Black Friday shopping online if I do any. I tend to pick up gifts throughout the year so come November I'm finished. That way I can spread out the purchasing and not spend a fortune at the time of the year when my job is at its slowest and my paycheck is at its lowest. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

Since it's a Dream store, can a soulmate be bought? (I'm kinda desperate to meet mine).

You have reminded me of one of my favorite shows from a while ago. Supermarket Sweep! I loved that show. But as for a shopping cart to fill at my dream store?!

So hard to choose, but now that I've got that show in my head, all I can think about is groceries!
