Hi guys! So, I have a big announcement to make! Me and Kai - my blogger affliate organized an event for you this Christmas season! It's called Christmas Countdown : 13 Books to Gift for Christmas!

What is Christmas Countdown?

A blog event that will be hosted by Fragments of Life and Amaterasu Reads. It will take place from December 13 to 24, 2010. Each day, one book will be featured by means of a review and/or interview and a giveaway. And we have decided to do something special just for you guys on the 25th! Yes, just for you! On Christmas Day, we will have a prize pack giveaway. Open internationally! This will serve as a gift to our readers for participating in the event and for taking the time to read the posts. :)

Objectives of Christmas Countdown:

1. To promote Young Adult books included in the event.

  3. Oh my gosh! I am soooo excited! Putting up a button on my blog now! :)

  4. P.S Your codes for the banners won't work because you placed the link of your photostream inside the img tag instead of the URL :) I hope you don't mind me direct linking your image instead of saving it to my own server if that's what you intended for us to do by placing your photostream link instead! :)Have a nice day!

  5. Oh man! How do I fix that? Thank you Gilliene!
    We're excited for it! :)

  6. The codes are fixed! :) Feel free to use them!
