GIVEAWAY/EVENT: Great Canadian Blog Bash

Spread the love
Welcome to The Great Canadian Blog Bash at SMS Book Reviews!

I also blog at which is also participating in this event so check over there for more giveaways.

My name is Callista and I’m a SAHM of three children, a dog, a cat and a fish. I love reading and love blogging and I especially love sharing what I read with others. I started writing book reviews online way back in 2001 but didn’t put them on a blog till 2003 and didn’t blog regularly till 2007.

Unlike most other book bloggers, I rarely read fiction. I love nonfiction and I read picture books with my children. If I do read fiction, it’s usually YA. I also sometimes review children’s fiction on here, but nonfiction (adults and children) is my passion. I LOVE learning.

I live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada and am a very proud Canadian. I love reading Canadian blogs. Have you ever been here to the southernmost part of Canada before? It’s strange, all Canadians know Canada is above the US but here in Windsor, we are actually below part of Michigan!

You can find me on twitter, facebook, stumbleupon, goodreads and linkedin. If you follow me on any of these and/or Google Friend Connect, let me know and I’ll return the favour as long as your blog is in English.


So for the giveaways, please fill out the form at the bottom of the post. You will be able to choose which books you are interested in entering for. There are a few extra entries possible, some for each prize, some for any prize. Read carefully before you enter.

NOTE: I also have a separate giveaway for two Canadian Living cookbooks that got added late.

About Kathleen

I've been a nonfiction lover for as long as I can remember. I love children's nonfiction as well and love to share my knowledge and the books I gained them from, with the world. I wish more people would give nonfiction a chance.
