Hey, peeps! The post I originally wanted to publish on Friday will go up today...

In the last month my baby blog achieved 673 GFC followers, reached 100,000+ pageviews, I read my 1000th book on Goodreads, and NBR is closing on to ONE year BLOGOVERSARY which will happen on 9th of May. I truly feel loved by you guys no matter which way you follow. My hubby's birthday is also today, so the occasion for the giveaway is all cheerful...

Unfortunately we've had some sad news last night that my husband's brother passed away, so this blog will go on vacation until 16th of April.

I'm leaving you with my blogoversary giveaway in the meantime, saying big THANK YOU to my friends Mel, Hannah, Michelle, Mimi, Melliane and Birgit, and to all people who come and visit this blog from time to time.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I'm giving away a choice among the selection of new releases I have on my wishlist, TBR shelf or have read already...

These books will be either ordered or pre-ordered from Fishpondworld.com which ships ANYWHERE in the world for free.
I will choose FIVE winners, each of them will be able to choose ONE book from the list.

Giveaway will end on 9th May 2012.

You don't have to be the follower to enter, but following as usual will get you extra entries *wink*

Good luck and see you on the 16th of April! Happy Easter!

I'm sorry about your brother in law. That is hard. Thank you very much for the giveaway. I'd love to win Starters. I actually really like to follow book blog tours. It is nice to read all of the extra information that authors provide for the tours.

I'd like to see a less cluttered sidebar, maybe a new blog design - totally different from what it is now - maybe a lighter color like white or cream? Definitely a new prettier font :)

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
