Sunday Post: Pre-order Deals & Giveaways Galore – 5/27/18

May 27, 2018 Sunday Post 50

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on my blog and share news about what’s coming up in the week ahead.

This past week on FYFA (and in my life):

I volunteered at my local Scholastic Warehouse sale this week and earned free books! I always love this sale because I get to be surrounded by books for hours and then I get to bring books home with me at the end of it all.  🙂 Check out the books I got in my book haul section below!

Like everyone, I spent WAY too much time this week trying to figure out the GDPR thing. I think I’ve done enough to satisfy the legal requirements, but who knows really? Oh, and how annoying has it been to receive five million emails about updates to privacy policies and re-subscriptions to email lists? Ugh!

Here’s what you may have missed on the blog this past week:

Book Blogger Birthdays and Blogoversaries:

Birthday-150 Blogoversary-150x150

Here are the birthdays and blogoversaries this week! I hope you’ll go wish these bloggers well on their special days! Make sure you check out the calendar to see what you might have just missed or what’s coming up. (If you want to be added to the calendar, it’s easy! Just fill out the birthday/blogoversary form.)

Book-Haul

Purchased:

I realized that I missed one of Kate L. Mary’s books, and I needed to fix that immediately. Picked up Outliers in anticipation of book #2 in this series.

From the Scholastic Warehouse Sale:

I got most of these for free with the money I earned for volunteering (I paid less than $10 for all of this).

Great Discussions/Goings On Around the Blogosphere:

Pre-Order Deals:

Listed in order of release date. Any new deals that I just added to the list this week will be denoted with a *** so you can easily find them!

Please note: Almost all pre-order giveaways run “while supplies last,” so I can’t guarantee that they’ll be open until the date listed. Pre-0rder early for your best chance to get all the goodies!

Even More Awesome Giveaways:

Lots of good stuff! Have any giveaways or great discussions happening on your site right now? Feel free to share them in the comments!

    Wow, you got a lot of books. I hope you enjoy them! That volunteer job sound great. I used to volunteer at the snack stand in high school, but they’d never let me eat any of the snacks.

    Volunteering for free books? That’s awesome! I liked Pros of Cons. I wasn’t sure what they were looking to achieve at the very end of the book, but the friendship was wonderful. I thought about volunteering for BEA/BookCon, since I live so close to NYC, but then I never do. This whole GDPR thing will work wonders for my email book, because I had subscribed to like a million author newsletters, and now I don’t have to unsubscribe.

    I remember volunteering for this book fair, but I didn’t get the same book perks. Great choices for so cheap! And yes, all the verifying newsletter emails were very tiresome.

  4. Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books

    Oh what an awesome haul, it’s incredible that you got to volunteer for free books afterwards, yay, such a fun thing to do 🙂
    I’m with you about the new GDPR things. I get ten emails per day about this and it is bothering me so, so much haha.
    I hope you’ll have a wonderful week! x

    So, I love the Scholastic Warehouse sales, but I have not ever volunteered. I should do that next year. Maybe get free books that way instead of spending so much of my own money. The GDPR emails are insane! I need to figure out what all I should do over on Blogger. Blogger put a message on my site I think, just don’t know what else I need to worry about. Have a great week!

    Good Lord. The blogging world is all shook up with this GDPR thing. I haven’t a moment to read about it because this week has been hectic for me but I will take the time for sure.

    Have a great week!

  7. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Ooh nice!! Lots of new to me ones here! Though I did just pick up Rise of the Isle of the Lost at HPB today! It was marked for $4 plus another 20% off! I still need to read book 2 but I couldn’t pass up such a deal for the the third one!

    Hope you enjoy all the awesome new reads!

    Have a GREAT day!

    GDPR has been fun, hasn’t it?? And yay for the book fair- coming home w/ books is ALWAYS good, I agree! Looks like a nice haul!

    I love that zombie thing…

  9. ShootingStarsMag

    All that GDPR stuff is so confusing, but I THINK I have it all covered? I’m going to still check out some of these blog posts I’m seeing that I haven’t read yet though just to check. Ooh thanks for sharing about Cait’s upcoming giveaway. That would be awesome to win!!!

  10. JJ @ This Dark Material

    Ooo, the Scholastic event must have been a lot of fun! That’s an excellent haul and well worth the time spent around even more books, I’d guess 🙂 I second your ‘ugh’ over GDPR. Like you, I think I’ve done everything necessary? I just hope now that the date has come and gone that most of us bloggers can put all that stress in the past!

      Yep, I’m not thinking about GDPR anymore. I just refuse (though a couple of small reminders have still popped up this week—for instance, I need to add my Events Manager widget to my privacy policy since I collect people’s birthdays and blogoversaries. Never know if I might decide to sell your blogoversaries for big money. 🙂 )

  11. Tizzy

    Sounds like the Scholastic sale was a lot of fun, and what a great haul! I found it hard to get my head around all the GDPR stuff as well, but finally got it sorted last weekend. Thanks for the links, those look interesting.

    I loved those Scholastic sales when my daughter was in school. When I was young it was Weekly Reader and my parents let me get whatever I wanted which was seriously like 20-30 books every time. I think they did those every 3-4 months.

    I’m doing a Read-Along of the Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series this year in preparation for the release of the 10th book August 27. We are about halfway right now. Every month there are games and prizes and there’s an overall prize for the Read-along. It’s my favorite author and a favorite series so it’s a joy to be reading it again. Anne – Books of My Heart

    Yay volunteering and free books! two of my favorite things 🙂 I’ll have to check what they have around here so I can volunteer too!

    I completely agree, getting all of those notices through email was overwhelming. I never realized how many authors I was signed up with lol! And that’s an awesome book haul! My oldest just read the first Super Diaper Baby book and now he wants to devour all of that authors books. He loves them, yay! Now I need to go find other authors with a similar writing style too…..
