Bookreporter.com Celebrates the Holidays!

More holiday book fun! I received this press release from one of my favorite book websites, bookreporter.com, and if you haven't visited them in awhile, now is the time. I always get great suggestions for books to give as gifts with their fabulous Gift Guides.

Bookreporter.com Celebrates the Holidays with
Daily Book Contests, Author Holiday Blogs, and Gift Suggestions for All


NEW YORK—Bookreporter.com, the flagship website of TheBookReportNetwork.com, is sharing the holiday spirit with readers this year with Holiday Cheer Daily Book Contests, a What to Give/What to Get Gift Guide and Author Holiday Blogs.

The Holiday Cheer Daily Book Contest, a new feature this year, spotlights books that readers can enter to win each weekday. On select days there will be bonus prizes, either holiday-themed items or books from Bookreporter.com’s Bets On selections. Readers need to enter to learn if that day is a “bonus day.”

Bookreporter.com’s other holiday features returning this season include a What to Give/What to Get Gift Guide--- an extensive guide to help readers pick out gifts for everyone on their shopping lists, including adults, teens and children --- and Author Holiday Blogs, where top authors share their favorite books to give and receive.

“Our Author Holiday Blogs, where authors share their own personal stories about book giving and receiving, is one of our readers’ favorite features. I am so appreciative of the author contributors who once again will be sharing their personal stories this year. Each post sheds some new light on the idea of gift giving and getting. Some readers follow this blog daily to read the stories, while others have told me they settle in close to the holidays and read them all at once. Coupled with our featured holiday books we have something for everyone this holiday season,” says Carol Fitzgerald, President of TheBookReportNetwork.com, the parent company of Bookreporter.com.

The holiday excitement is not limited to Bookreporter.com as Teenreads.com, TheBookReportNetwork.com’s teen site, also hosts a Holiday Basket of Cheer Contest, and there are What to Give/What to Get gift selections for teens on Teenreads.com and children on Kidsreads.com.
