Win a Book Thong

My super cool friend makes these adorable Book Thongs (and wine glass charms). I am a big book lover and obviously you gotta have some bling to keep your place when you're reading something good right? I love these so much that I thought it'd be fun to give one away to one of my awesome friends!

Here's the deal:

(Please leave a separate comment for each entry.)

~Tell me a good book you've read recently.
~Tell me a book you're wanting to read.
~Who is your favorite author?
~What is your favorite bookthong?
~Spread the word anywhere (then just come back and tell me you did).

-I loved the Mortal Instruments trilogy. I think they were awesome!

-The book I've been wanting to read the most is the book I'm reading right now. It's The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.

-I'll always have a love for Stephenie Meyer and JK Rowling because they're the ones to get me to read. But, at this point, I'm not sure who my "favorite" author is as I'm discovering authors all the time.

-Starlight is my favorite bookthong. When you first asked the question, I wasn't sure what to say because I didn't see the link and I've never had a bookthong. LOL!

-I have a link on my blog to your blog. I'm not sure if that counts. If not, that's okay. I just enjoy telling you about myself. ;)

Obviously, I don't read or listen very well since I was supposed to leave all of those as a separate comment. Sorry! I disqualified myself. ;)

I loved The Book Thief!

Ang said...

My favorite thongs are the jacob and edward ones b.c I just can't pick one or the other in the books or in life.

I just read 13 reasons why and found it very interesting. It pulled me through and stayed with me after I'd read it.

As for my 2 read list... you don't have tha tmuch time for space... I'm sooooo behind on my list.

Rachel Sue said...

I just finished Miss Dela court and loved it!

Me said...

I haven't had the time to read recently..but I loved Peony in Love by Lisa See. I was skeptical, but became totally enamored with it and couldn't put it down!

Me said...

I am anxious to read: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I rec'vd it as a gift/freebie from random house! It sits patiently on my nightstand waiting for me. I fear it may have to wait until December..when my Christmas crafting is finished! *sigh*

Me said...

So many great book thongs! I think I love the Key to my Heart one! Beautiful!

Amber Lynae said...

I want to read Wings By Aprilynne Pike

Amber Lynae said...

I like many of the book thongs and each time I look I like a different one, so I will say Niko Bookthong was my favorite when I left the site.

Amber Lynae said...

I also dedicated a blog spot to your contest.

I just finished Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale and loved it.

Greg and Kimberly ... said...

I also want to read Wings by Aprilynne Pike. And there are too many to list, just go to my wish list on Shelfari! :)

Greg and Kimberly ... said...

I have a lot of favorite authors: SM, of course; Shannon Hale rocks my world. Jane Austen, for the times I want to talk in an English accent.

Greg and Kimberly ... said...

I have the Carlisle one, I use it all the time! (I won it in Forks.) I like the Celtic knot ones, they are beautiful.

H.K. said...

I read an average of 8 to 10 books a month and sometimes more. Instead of watching TV, I relax by reading a book. So, it's not often I come across a book that is truly mesmerizing.

One of them is the "Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. It's a trilogy and I look forward to the sequel in September!

Chantele said...

I just read Wings by Aprilynne Pike. It was awesome!

Chantele said...

I want to read Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games was amazing!!!

Chantele said...

Hmmm....favorite author? Well, I'm a sucker for the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, but I love Jane Austen, and Shannon Hale as well. It's a toss up!:)

Chantele said...

My favorite book thong is...
the Bella one!

Chaleese said...

I just read The Amaranth Enchantment by Julie berry. It was so cute.

I want to read Silk Singer by Lani Taylor. I loved Fairies of Dreamdark!

Chaleese said...

My favorite author is Stephanie Meyer. I love the Twilight series, those books started my love for reading.

SO said...

A good book I've read recently? I just finished Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult. It was good but you can kind of see the ending coming.

SO said...

Two books I really enjoyed, both by Jodi Picoult. My Sister's Keeper. One of my top five books. And 19 Minutes. It's a book that is about a Columbine shooting type incident. I believe that it should be required reading for 9th graders and above.

SO said...

Since all of my books that I've mentioned so far have been by Jodi Picoult you could safely assume that she is my favorite author but that would be a wrong assumption. I don't necessarily have a favorite author. I love Shel Silverstein, and Robert Fulghum. I also really enjoy Robert Jordan who wrote The Wheel of Time series. Good series by the way.

SO said...

Favorite book thong? The little green tree frog.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hi Debbie at Cranberries and Fries. I love that title. And I love both Cranberries and Fries. I love books too, but aren't thongs against our standards?

Oh what the helk. I don't mind a sexy book every now and then.

So I'm putting your down for my bloggy meet and greet on Saturday because the last time you stopped by you said you wanted to stop by. I can't wait to meet you. You are beeUtiful.

I just finished reading The Middle Place. It was Grrrrreat! I want to read The Time Travelers Wife next.

I like that twirly book thong thingy.

P.S. Did you know that when I'm not a dummy, I'm a Debbie too?

The Crash Test Dummy said...

And hey, I waited for my mishionary too. High Five!

One good book I've read recently was "In The Cold" by Jeanie London. It's a little slow on the pickup, but the story is altogether good. Just makes you wish there'd be a sequel!

Sadiana! said...

One book I want to read is "White Witch, Black Curse" by Kim Harrison. I've read all the other books in the series, I just haven't picked this one up yet. If you haven't tried it, the first book in the series is "Dead Witch Walking" - you should give it a shot!

Sadiana! said...

My favorite author is J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts), who writes the "In Death" series about the NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas, set about 50 years in the future. There are over 20 books in the series now, and so many multifaceted and wonderful characters, if you haven't given it a try, you are so missing out!

The bookthong I like best from that site was the Dante (Kiss of Crimson) one! Isn't it pretty?

Hopping over from Crash's site. I had to enter cuz I read a bunch! :)

HI.

I just finished reading The Courtship of nellie Fisher by Beverly Lewis.

It's about an amish chick and her familia. it was pretty good. I think learning about the Amish.

Kritta22 said...

I wanna read Ella Minnow Pea (L M P) for book club this month but I don't have time. I'm moving in 19 days to new Mexico. (I live in Alaska right now.) I've done working on Nellie for about two months now. I have library fines for her! :)

Kritta22 said...

I'm not sure who my favorite author is nowadays. It used to be Avi, the kid author. Then Shannon Hale, the Lori Wick and now I'm kinda a floater. What about you?

Kritta22 said...

I dig the sexy red or ket to my heart. There are a bunch to choose from!
