Before I tell you about this week’s giveaway, I want to congratulate the winner of last week’s giveaway: Shannon S. Hope the Amazon Gift Card helps with your holiday budget!
Two Christmases ago, my parents bought me an e-reader and it was a life changer. Finally, I could read in bed in the dark while laying on my side. Or on the TTC in Toronto while commuting to/from work. It was amazing. I’ll never understand why it took me so long to jump aboard the e-reader train, but now I’m here to stay.
Having an e-reader has also been helpful in my decision to live a more minimalist lifestyle. I had no problem donating more than half of my hard copy books to my local library, when I did that massive declutter/purge this past summer, and know I’ll donate many more (after I finally read them). I’d eventually like to only have my e-reader plus a few favourites – that’s it, nothing more.
I want to give the gift of freedom I’ve found with my e-reader to one of you. So, fellow Canadian book lovers, read on. For my final giveaway of the year, I have one brand new Kobo Aura up for grabs. I’m actually sad to be giving one of these away, because I could use it myself. My e-reader is broken/unfixable. (It works but barely – wah! Maybe I can buy one in another 7 months, when the shopping ban is over.) Anyway…
