Smugglivus 2012

The Book Smuggler‘s Smugglivus runs from December 1 to January 7 and is an “end of the year celebration. Back in our first year of The Book Smugglers in 2008, we wanted to do something special at the end of the year leading up to our blog anniversary in early January. So, we came up with the idea to host our own holiday bonanza to celebrate our favorite books, authors, bloggers, etc of the year. So, inspired by Seinfeld’s infamous Festivus, Smugglivus was born. Each year, Smugglivus begins on December 1 and features guest posts from our favorite people across the interwebs (with a healthy serving of our regular reviews and giveaways, of course). The event then ends in with a big bang on January 7, our very own bloggiversary. (It’s our fifth this year! Wowza.)”

I’m happy to say that I’ve been invited to be one of those guest posters. (I also participated last year). Look for my post on Friday, December 14!

In the meanwhile, grab something to drink, sit back, relax, and start reading through the Smugglivus posts so far. It’s a great mix of people, all sorts of perspectives and posts, and reading them is a fun way to spend an afternoon.
