Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway Hop! $25 Gift Card!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today for my part of the Spooktacular Book Blog Giveaway Hop hosted by I am a reader, Not a writer

Halloween is a busy and exciting time of year in my house. My youngest son's birthday is Oct. 30, so we have always combined any Halloween activities with his birthday celebration. Anything from Trick or Treat at the Aquarium, haunted hay rides, and Halloween/birthday parties with tons of games and activities. Our favorite Halloween party game to play is the "Toilet Paper Mummy Wrap" this can be played by either children or adults or any combination of the two. How it works: One person takes the roll of toilet paper and begins wrapping their partner as fast as they can without breaking the toilet paper or they have to start over with a new roll. The first pair done wins. So much fun for everyone involved!!

How does your family celebrate Halloween?

Giveaway details: Your choice of
1. $25 E-gift card (sent to your email) from Amazon
2. $25 E-gift card from Barnes and Noble
3. Up to $25 in books from The Book Depository.

How to enter:
You must be a follower of this blog, leave a comment on this post with your email address and which of the 3 choices you prefer. Random winner will be chosen on 10/31. Good Luck and Happy Halloween!!!!

Well, I stopped by as I found you by you following me on Twitter. :) So thank you! It looks like we have a lot of similar interests in books. :) So with that I am a new follower here and on Twitter.

And as an added bonus, you are having this wonderful giveaway. That is a nice little extra for following (which I would have done with out the giveaway.) :)

That is a hard choice from the e-cards there. But... I think I might go with Amazon. There is a book or two on there that no one else has that I would LOVE to get. :)
