It's Summer and I Feel Like Having A Giveaway! ($25 to Book Depository)

I'm Canadian and I'm well aware of the joke that Canadian summers last about a month out of the year. The sad thing is, the joke has some truth to it. While I'm used to the cold and the snow, this past winter was harsher than most and man do I 
absolutely hate shoveling. To make matters worse, the temperature has also been on the cool-side until recently. When it finally hit 25°C the other day, I immediately grabbed a book, slathered on some sunscreen and relaxed on my back porch. There is nothing I love more then reading in the sun!

So in order to celebrate that summer has finally arrived in Canada, I thought I would host a giveaway so some lucky winners have the chance to get out and read in the sun. Just remember the sunscreen ladies!

One lucky commenter will win two books of his/her choosing from Book Depository!

  1. I totally agree - our weather here has been up and down! Where abouts are you in Canada? I'm in Ontario :)

    You should stop by and check out the Canada Day Blog Hop we're having!

  2. There is no better reason to have a giveaway than the fact that summer has actually arrived! Brilliant idea Nicole! I'm hoping the rain they're forecasting holds off for a little while and I can read in the sun sometime this week. ;) haha
    Thanks for the giveaway Nicole! :D

  3. We've had a few sunfilled days in the Netherlands but it's raining cats and dogs over here ATM :( I love to sit on the porch and readmsome good books and with my lily white skin I sure will lather up the sunscreen *wink* otherwise it's burn, shed skin and then go lily white again...

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway and lets hope the summer wil be long enough to have a cocktail party :)

  4. Aislynn - I live in Alberta. The weather is so crazy here sometimes! One day it's freezing cold and raining and the next it's bright and sunny. Silly Canada :P

    .Ambur. - Your welcome :) Hope your summer is going well.

    Leontine - I know how you feel about the lily- white skin. If I'm out in direct sun for an hour, I'll be pink. Just can't win sometimes, sigh.

  5. I may be the only person on earth who would love to have summer only one month of the year. I love the snow and cooler temps! Canada sounds like my kind of place. :)
    Thanks for the giveaway and the invitation to enter!

  6. Lucky you to have summer only one month out of the year. Here in south central Texas our summer starts in the middle of spring up til like the 1st of novemember. Today was 105 (HOT) and the Heat index was 107 degrees. It is also so dry that I have 1 inch cracks in our yard from it being so dry. We need rain really bad - everyone 50 miles north of us and above is getting all that needed rain we need.

    by the way I love your blog.

  7. I'm From Montreal!!! Loving the hot sun right now!!! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity hon! :D

  8. The weather in North Carolina is tropical. Humidity and temperature in the 90's. Brutal, I envy those in the colder climes. I long for snow.

  9. last week or two was hot for PA we are like a yoyo here this year has been bad for rain ugh want some sunny days.

  10. Well its winter down under and i'm freezing my bits off

  11. Nissie - Canada is a wonderful place! However, when it's -30 (don't know what that would be in Fahrenheit) and the snow is up to your waist, it can be a little hard to handle.

    Rhonda - Thank you! It has rained all day where I live in Alberta. I'll try to send it down your way ;)

    Moonlight Gleam - Ooo, Montreal! I want to go there soooooo badly!

    Blue Shedevil - Snow can be nice, but man I would kill for some tropical weather. I'm pale as a ghost and in desperate need of a tan!

  12. I'm from Australia and it's winter here, it's gotten so cold lately brrrr. I've been keeping warm reading good books. ;)

    Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway.

  13. thanks for the giveaway! so gracious of you. the weather from my part of the world is hot on some days then sudden rains in the afternoon or evening! c",)

  14. Must follow a fellow Canadian and this is a great give-away!

    And finally we've actually had some decent weather to be able to enjoy summer.

  15. Thanks for the giveaway. I'm in Alaska and weather has been nice and sunny here. Usually it is rainy at this time of the year. We had a mild winter too with most of the lower 48 having worse temps and snowfall. The sad part is watching how much of the glacier by me has melted. :(

  16. Love the contest! This summer has been really mild for me down in So Cal, but I can’t believe how cold it’s been for you! Yay for warmth, I can’t imagine living in the cold, I’ve lived in desert all my life….anyways, I am a new follower! Love your blog, can’t wait for future posts!

  17. The contest sounds interesting! The weather has been a little up and down for us as well here in Ohio, right now it looks like it wants to rain which isn't so bad just as long as it doesn't heat things up too much.
