What an interesting night. Where I live, we had a pretty big ice-storm with big wind gusts, so that meant no power for just about 12 hours. There are a lot of tree limbs down all around the house, and it sounded like they were coming though either the roof or the windows. Luckily, though, no damage was done. Just a bunch of mess. We don’t have them often, thankfully, so I can’t really complain.
On the site side of things, I have added all of the series you have recommended to the 101+ Series to Read page. I wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to all of you who took the time to help out with it, and hopefully we can all get some use out of it. I have found a few on there that are tempting me, but I am putting them firmly on the “one day” list.
I also have an etiquette question. Since I live in Canada, Amazon.com won’t let me order ebooks, and Amazon.ca doesn’t allow for gifting, but I have been thinking of a work-around. When I did a giveaway, would it seem tacky if I bought the ebook and emailed it to the winner myself? I don’t want it to seem shady, but it would be about the only thing that would work. And because of my “experience” with my father’s reading needs, I could convert to whatever format is needed. I could even include a screenshot of the order so that it didn’t look like I was some scumbag who pirated the title and tried to pass it off as a giveaway. Then it is just a matter of the winner emailing to their Kindle themselves, just like it was an ARC. Let me know if you think that idea has potential.
