Feature & Follow Friday....... (w/ a GIVEAWAY)

Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

This week is the 100th F&FF Post!!!!!  So this week's a bit different....I'm going to mention one of my favorite blogs.  That blog is..........

Fans of the m/m genre rejoice!  Chris has quick reviews about the latest book releases in the m/m genre and a fun Friday post talking about cats, sci-fi, gluten-free foods, among other entertaining tidbits.  Lots of book giveaways to introduce you to the m/m genre.  Kudos on a great site, Chris!


I've been fighting back and leg spasms all week so I didn't have a chance to formally sign up for the giveaway hop.  I still want to give away something though to one randomly chosen those in the US/CAN will have 3 books (titles are A Warrior's Promise/Donna Fletcher, Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea/Sophia Nash, & Confessions from an Arranged Marriage/Miranda Neville) you can win, while everybody else will have the chance to win a $5 Amazon GC.  So when you stop by (and hopefully become a follower if you're not one already), let me know which country you're from. 

*Addendum to giveaway....Winner can choose which of the two listed prizes they want.

Giveaway ends at 11:59 PM CST on 6/10.
