And the randomly chosen winner is... Brian Joseph from Babbling Books, a terrific book blog I discovered a few months ago. Congratulations, Brian! (Is it just me or do you also often type "Brain" instead of "Brian" and then need to correct your spelling?) He's won a copy of Leave of Absence by Tanya J. Peterson, which I read and reviewed earlier this month. If you didn't win this time, please take a look at the other book giveaways listed on the right side of my blog.
I have a "geeky" question for those of you who use Blogger. Do you type up your posts in Compose or HTML mode? I usually "compose" my posts, but switch to HTML when I need to have things in code. It's nice to have this option. Sometimes I want to copy code, like code for a photo or graphic, and I can get it neatly in HTML form. And sometimes the only way I can fix spacing issues is by going to code mode, rather than compose mode. I don't know if WordPress also offers both of these options. And speaking of WordPress, I know some of you have switched from Blogger to WordPress and vice versa (I think). I've never really considered changing to WordPress, because I've been on Blogger for five years, from the start of this blog, and feel as if I know it inside and out. It usually works very well for me, except for occasional glitches. Also, Blogger has made some positive changes fairly recently, such as offering a larger window for typing up posts (we used to have only a small rectangle for this), and it's quite user friendly. If you use WordPress, I'm guessing it's relatively easy to use, for the most part. I know so little about the mechanics of WordPress, but apparently it's the most popular platform for bloggers worldwide.
Que faites-vous cet été? Next month, I'll participate in The Summer of France book tour. The book looks and sounds romantic, n'est-ce pas? I just received my book in the mail yesterday (on Mailbox Monday), and I'm looking forward to reading it. The author, Paulita Kincer, has traveled to France numerous times.
