Saturday Spotlight: DeRaps Reads

Woot! I finally am over 200 books read! 204 to be exact. See the full list here.

Alright, I figure it's time for incentive... comments are low and I know just the thing to motivate you guys to comment more! I'm going to do a monthly Top 5 drawing. Look at the sidebar, find the Top 5 Commentators. If your name is on that list at the end of the month, I will be drawing a book of choice from The Book Depository up to a $15 value for whichever of the 5 names I pick. If The Book Depository does not ship to your country, I will let you choose a book of choice under $10 that I can pick up locally and ship to you. What do you guys think?


  1. You've read over 200 books?! Wow that's awesome! :) I wish I could read that fast.

    I like the commenting idea :) That's really cool.

  2. Great contest. I want to read The Uglies series. I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading this week! :)

  3. That's a fair sounding contest. I've been seeing a lot of blog having comment contest and they are a big hit! I'm looking forward too it :D

  4. Looks like you got a few books read this week. As for your contest idea it sounds really good.

  5. 200 books?! Um, my list is like 30 :( You put me to shame.

  6. Yep, commenting contest is really good, but probably not for lazy people like me that happens to be reading from google reader. :p

    But I'm sure it'll be great for you and your blog! :D

  7. Great books you've been reading and coming up! I like the idea of your new contest. I'll try to be less of a lurker...LOL!

  8. Sounds good --> contest

    You've been reading some great books lately, and some to come! :D Enjoy; I'll await your reviews.

  9. Wow, congrats on 204 books! I'm amazed :-D Here's to many more! :-)

  10. Awesome contest to get people to start commenting more! Congrats on all the books read!

  11. So jealous that you've reached 200-I still have one book to go! Your upcoming list looks great: I Am Number Four and Losing Faith are pretty high on my wishlist.

  12. That is certainly a good incentive for more comments! :)

  13. Oh, also I really enjoyed Uglies, hope you are too!

  14. Holy crap! Over 200 books?!?!?! I'm hoping to hit 100 this year! I think I'm somewhere around 80 at the moment. You're crazy, girl! Lol

  15. That's a lot of books read this past week! I only had time to finish three, I think. Also, the commenting idea you have is great - it'll definitely motivate me to comment more ;)

  16. You had a fabulous week! Enjoy your week. I look forward to your reviews. My Monday:

  17. Wow 204 books. I know that is a lot of reading. I'm at 193 for the year and I read a lot!

  18. You and I read at a similar pace and seem to have an overlap in tastes. Zombies vs Unicorns is on my wishlist.

    Mostly picture books last week. Here's what I'm reading this week.

  19. I'm so green in envy! I love books but is on restrain this year since I've got public exams at school... (sigh)


Leave some love!
