I'm Alison (on the off chance you couldn't guess that from the name of my blog). I review Young Adult novels with a few Middle Grade books and a weekly manga feature.
Remember my post a few weeks ago asking advice about whether I should by an iPad, Kindle Fire, or Nook Tablet?
What's better than a $500 16 GB iPad?
A FREE 64 GB iPad!!!!!!
I struck it big at my work's end of the year raffle.
I also won a $50 Amazon gift card.
Dengeki Daisy vol. 4 by Kyousuke Motomi
**I also received some of my Blogger Secret Santa gifts this week, but since I'm out of town and don't have the items in front of me, I can't remember them all. I'll post a re-cap on that later.
Awesome! Me likey!ReplyDelete
Ahh oh my gosh, lucky you!!! An iPad AND a $50 gift card? You really did strike big, congrats. :DReplyDelete
Wow! Congrats on winning the IPAD!ReplyDelete

*lets see if this works now* LOLReplyDelete
A FREE IPad? Wow. You really did strike it lucky!
Come check out mine.
Wow. You've had one lucky week! Congrats on the iPad win!!ReplyDelete
I know I should be all "Oh wow, you got an iPad for free" but I'm much more interested in the fact that you got Dengeki Daisy :P! That is my favourite manga at the moment, I love it so much! :D. Okay, now I've got that out, congrats on your wins, you lucky person! Can't believe you got a free iPad. Enjoy! :)ReplyDelete
Woohoo, that's awesome! Congrats lucky girl! I have an iPad 2 and I absolutely love it! I had a Nook Color and hated it from the moment I first started using it, but the iPad is amazing because you can read virtually any book file - can even get the books off NetGalley by downloading a free app that will allow you to read them! It's a bit bigger than eReaders, but that's a small detail that I can easily overlook. Enjoy your new toy!ReplyDelete
Whoaaa! LUCKY. That has got to be the best Christmas present ever! DENGEKI DAISY! Ahhh how I miss reading that! I stopped halfway through since I got tired of reading them online...but it's such a great manga! Must resume reading it someday...ReplyDelete
Wow! How lucky. Good for you. Have fun with it.ReplyDelete
Nice! I might do the secret santa next year. Money was a little tight for me this year since I didn't have a job. Now that I have a pt-temp one I'm trying to earn back my savings!ReplyDelete
My IMM will be up tomorrow morning, be sure to stop by!
Have a GREAT weekend!

Oh, wow ! The best thing I ever won was a laptop in a raffle and I needed it for college too ! If I won an iPad I would have been screming my head off. . . then I'd sell it for furniture or something.ReplyDelete
