Book Lover's Holiday Giveaway Hop!

A new record here at BiblioJunkies - we just finished our last giveaway two days ago and here we go again!  We are getting into the holiday spirit by participating in this fabulous hop hosted by Kidlit Frenzy & I am a Reader, Not a Writer!  This one is extra special for us BiblioJunkies because we will hit 200 followers during this hop! 

We are having our official BiblioJunkies holiday party in a couple of weeks, wherein we will kick Nat's husband and kids out of the house and eat delicious junk food while watching hot boys in movies and/or tv shows made from books!  We wish you could all join us, but since Nat's house is not quite that big, we will have to give you a great prize instead!  You know the drill - fill out the Rafflecopter below and comment to enter - tell us about the BEST Christmas present you have ever gotten.  Then you can earn extra entries for following us in various places, etc. 

At last count there are 271 participating blogs - go forth, enter and hopefully win some great holiday prizes.  We wish you all the best during this holiday season and hope you will come out to play with us often!

    The best Christmas gift... That's a hard one... I think I would have to say either my laptop or my camera but I am sitting here listening to my wind chimes I got 2 years ago and I love them also. lol... I guess I love everything anyone gives me. :-) I still even have 2 little play dough ornaments made for me by 2 precious little girls that are now teenagers and I love them and cherish them also. :-)

  19. This sounds lame and cliche but for me it was the one year of the death of a family member and that year my best friend gave me a hug and we watched a movie.
    For me that was the best, it helped me keep my mind off of what had happened the year before.

  44. I'm not sure I could pick one. Not Christmas-related, but my in-laws recently gave me a trip to LA because of some photography I did for them over the past year. They set up my flight, accommodations, even childcare for my kids while I would be gone. That was a shock and such an amazing surprise.

  52. My brother came through for me two years in a row while I was in college. The first year he got me the J. Crew Barn Jacket. That thing was falling apart by time I stopped wearing it. The next year he got me the Barry Manilow boxed set. I was living in my sorority house, and my poor sorority sisters had to listen to so much Barry. This was about 20+ years after Barry's peak in popularity. Doesn't matter, I still love him.

  55. Honestly, I'm not sure. Long ago my family decided to stop exchanging gifts with the adults in the family ... only buying for the kids. And I don't really ever remember anything special from when I was a kid.

    We don't actually celebrate Christmas but, when my brother and I were kids, my parents would put up a tree and we would exchange gifts. They didn't want us to miss out.

    Anyway...my brother got me a pound puppy set which I still have. Now my daughter plays with it. It has sentimental and nostalgic value.

  81. When I got my first ever cell phone. It was a big deal for me because I didn't have a car and I was working so I always had to use a pay phone at my job (since we couldn't make outside calls) to call my ride. And if I didn't have enough change on me, I had to ask my co-workers if they had any. It was so embarassing and getting expensive. So when I got my cell phone from my momma I teared up a little and ws so grateful.
