For the second edition of Library Thing Tuesday (which is now officially called Tuesday Thingers), we were asked about discussion groups. Specifically: "Do you belong to any (besides Early Reviewers)? Approximately how many? Are there any in particular that you participate in more avidly? How often do you check?"
If we are talking about book discussion groups, then I'd have to say there are about 5 I check on a regular basis (LT Early Reviewers, LT YA Lit, BookDivas, B&N, RB). I also have stored about 30 book blogs in my favorites that I check 2-3 times a week to see what's new. I love leaving comments and entering contests. I even won my first contest over at Reviewer X's blog (which I love!) - a copy of Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty by Jody Gehrman (which already came). I also won a cherry phone charm at Linda Gerber's online launch party (what a great idea!) to celebrate the debut of her book Death by Bikini (looks like a fun read).
Do you enter online contests? And if so, have you won any?
