Weekly Review #16 & Giveaway

What a week this has been.  It’s almost hard to believe another is week is over already.  I got quite a bit of reading finished this week but my health has been on the decline.  And I’m attempting to find out what books have made you laugh.  So, there is so much that I could talk about today.

First, we had the 24 hour read-a-thon this past weekend.  I didn’t get through the full 24 hours and a lot of that has to do with my decline in health.  I really enjoyed the time that I could sit and read and actually got several things read.  You can see a good summary of how things went here.  There you’ll find out what I read and my general thoughts about how my time reading went.  Now I’m really looking forward to the next one, I hope to find others in Stratford that are interested in participating and getting together to read.

I’m hosting a giveaway of sorts.  I’m wanting to know what books you think are funny.  So until the end of April I want you to tell me what books you have found funny.  From that list I want to compile a list and then survey to find the top 10 funny books.  This isn’t exactly an original idea but the one being done on CBC will be dealing with a smaller group of people.  This one, I hope to have a list from the book blogging community.  Once all is said and done I will be giving away a book to one of the people that tell me what books have made them laugh.  You can go to the original post to tell me what makes you laugh.  Now for some added encouragement if you blog about this event, and send me the link to the post, I’ll give you five more entries.  The prize will also change, instead of getting the number one book you’ll get the books that place 1, 2 and 3.  

I hope this week brings you many great books and some wonderful time to read.
