Two Events You Can't Miss!

You're invited to a virtual baby shower for Amy from Passages to the Past and Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours...Saturday, June 30.  We are celebrating the impending birth of Amy's first son, Vedder.  She gives so much to the historical fiction and book blogging communities, I wanted to give something back to her.  What better occasion, I say!

The "shower" will be a blog post the day of the event here on The True Book Addict.  Stop by to see what surprises we have in store.  There will be a trivia game during the shower with book prizes donated from some wonderful authors.  If you would like to donate a book for a prize, please let me know.

What we are doing for Amy gift-wise I'm keeping a secret from her until the day of the shower.  All of the details can be found in this note on my Facebook page here:  This is hidden from Amy so she can't see it (even if she clicks the link).  It's such a wonderful idea and I'd like to thank Michelle Moran for suggesting it! You can also email me at truebookaddict AT gmail DOT com if you have any questions or need further explanation.

NOTE:  It has been brought to my attention that anyone who is not my friend on Facebook (or a friend of a friend) cannot see the note I listed above.  I can't make it public because then I wouldn't be able to hide it from Amy so if you click the link above and can't access it, please email me at the address above and I'll send you the details.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

I have invited everyone in the book blogging and historical fiction community that I'm friends with on Facebook.  If you know of anyone that would want to be included, please feel free to invite them.

Thank you.  I hope you will join us!


The dedicated read-a-thon blog, Seasons of Reading, is live and sign-up for the High Summer Read-a-Thon is posted over there.  My read-a-thons will be hosted from that blog from now on.  I hope you like the site!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. How creative! The baby shower idea is just wonderful and I will plan on stopping in.
    I am glad to see that your readathon does not start for a bit. I will add that site to my reader and keep track. I will be finishing up some projects and am hoping to join in.

    1. Thanks, Steph! I hope you will be able to join me for both events. I'm hoping to join you all for your Anna Karenina read-a-long. Have to what I have on my reading plate next month. =O)

  2. Michelle -- when I clicked the FB note, I got a 'page not found' error -- do I need to be a FB friend to see it? Would love to help out/participate in some way -- if it's easier, feel free to email me at unabridgedchick at Thank you!
