Happy October, everyone!

While I’m a summer girl through and through, there’s always a lot to be excited about in October! If you’re like me, the entire month is devoted to raving about fall weather, binge-watching classic horror/Halloween movies, splurging on Halloween candy, and most recently… protecting myself from evil clowns 🤡.  But, the month of October also celebrates another one of my favorite pastimes. And that celebration is National Book Month!

If you haven’t heard of it before, National Book Month is a holiday that every book lover should know of and participate in.  National Book Month occurs every October and was created/previously sponsored by The National Book Foundation.

And although The National Book Foundation no longer sponsors the event, bookworms continue to traditionally celebrate it worldwide. All month long, book lovers unite to share their appreciation for their favorite books and authors, as well as dedicating time to reading books on their  never-ending “to-read” lists.

Being a book enthusiast myself, I’ve decided to host my first giveaway in honor of #NationalBookMonth!  Because we all know books and coffee go together perfectly, I am giving away a $5 Starbucks E-gift card and a $10 Amazon E-gift card to one lucky winner.  Enter now for the chance to enjoy a cup of coffee on me and $10 to help you purchase a book off your wishlist!

All you have to do is enter below!The giveaway will run throughout the entire month of October with a winner randomly selected and notified on Halloween day.  The more activities you complete, the more entries you’ll receive!  Be sure to leave a comment below to let me know what book/books are on your fall to-read list! 🍂📚
