Welcome to Giving & Sharing!

Thanks for stopping by and checking us out.  You will find several giveaways and reviews on both of my blogs.  Feel free to browse and follow if you'd like.  I am in the process of changing my Family Literacy & You blog to reviews & book giveaways only and my Giving N Sharing site will be product reviews, family safety and other great deals I find on the web.  You will also find a Giveaway Linky that goes from Jan 1 to Dec 31 and then starts all over again.  If you have giveaways (all the time), please feel free to add your blog button to the linky.  Do not link to individual giveaways - but to your blog.

Thanks!  Tina "The Book Lady"

  1. When did you start blogging?  I started blogging, hmmm - lets see, I've had at least 5 blogs & this is the first to actually take off and do what I wanted it do.  So, not counting the other 4 I did first - in January 2010.
  2. Why did you start blogging?  I started because I enjoy writing, I've been told I'm not too bad at it and I've found it encouraging to have people come back and read what I write and have a conversation with people who have an interest in what I do.  
  3. What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?  I have a literacy booth on Saturday and that will be fun.  I am doing a teacher appreciation booth - and offering them 10% off or FREE shipping, their choice.  Still gotta figure out what my treats are - any suggestions?  Something that's easy, doesn't melt too much and isn't so yummy I eat it up!
  4. Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite.  I get a lot of interaction with posts where I share something about how I feel about a situation.  Here's one:  Imagination the Key to Play
