Not only that but there wasn't much to give different answers to. I will be giving a $15.00 Gift Certificate to one lucky person out of the 20 people who did answer the first time out! I appreciated your answers, they were perfect and wonderful and so very helpful :o] You're all FAERYTASTIC (((HUGZ)))
The Giveaway for the $50.00 Gift Certificate is still on! My plan is to try to do the ONE-SIT-READ on Saturday's.
As for the $50.00 Gift Certificate, that will go to the person who does the best example of a ONE-SIT-READ from NOW to MONDAY, APRIL 25 at MIDNIGHT.
Remember, a OSR is a book that you really liked. One of those books that you find yourself:When you write an OSR it should be short, simple and about why YOU liked it. Not a review, just a short paragraph that tells your fellow bloggers and readers why this book is a worthy read!
- Eagerly awaiting the next in the series-sometimes actually counting down the days!
- Having a hard time putting down-if the phone rings, per chance, or it's midnight and you have to get up early the next day :o]
- Still thinking about either a) after you've finished it or b) while you're still reading it but can't read it for some reason (work, kids, etc...),
- Blowing off things like laundry, dishes, dinner, and other things just to finish it-Yeah, like us book lovers would ever do ANYTHING like that! :o]
- Incredibly bummed about after the last page just because the book ended
- Wanting to know more about the author, upcoming books, other books the author might have written, tweeting about the book or to the author, participating in that author' book forum, joining a club or forum on that book or series-on Goodreads or another Blog, for instance
- Posting the book or its author on your blog; either a count down to the next book or the author's website on your blog-roll i.e.
- May leave you weeping, think a hot snotty mess-but in a good way :o]
- That left you feeling Faerytastic; think happy sappy non-mess :o]
- Any book that had an IMPACT on you!
Here's a few examples of what you might base your paragraph on but keep in mind, it's your paragraph, these are just some pointers.Those are just a few things that I feel when I write or label a book as an OSR-There's more, obviously, those are just a few examples and of course, it's different for everyone which makes OSR's all the more interesting :o]
- How the book made you feel. Sometimes when you're at a certain point in your life, you read a book that may help change your perspective on things.
- Was it just the entertainment value?
- Did the characters seem real and pull you into the book? Tell why they did or how they made you feel.
- Was the world building so realistic that you felt like you stepped right into that world every time you opened the book?
- What genre was it, was it steampunk, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, fantasy, romance, etc...Was it a genre you normally read? If not, were you surprised that you liked it?
Write me an OSR on a book that impacted you in a way that you would label it as I explained above. It doesn't have to be the greatest book of all time but a book that made you FEEL something and one that you would recommend highly to friends and fellow bloggers.
State the name of the book, the author and then a short paragraph about the book explaining why you would rank it an OSR based on how the book made you feel, what it was about the book that made you feel that way about it.
The Best OSR wins a $50.00 Gift Certificate to either Amazon, Barnes and Noble or The Book Depository.
