What's Up Wednesday - Giveaways, Book Reviews, and More!

I took a lovely little jog around the blogosphere today, and here's what I found from the blogs that I follow in the last 24 hours:

- Book Reviews: from BookedUp, ReadingforSanity, YearningtoRead, ABookishLibraria, ThatArtsyReaderGirl, IntoxicatedbyBooks, TabithasBookBlog, TheWriteToMakeALiving, LivetoRead, and APocketFullofBooks. (Hey, I can't help it, I love to read, love to review, and love to read reviews!)
- Giveaways: at PhatFiber, MyEclecticBookshelf, BigAlsBooksandPals, FromtheTBRPile, TheFairyTaleNerd, and EarthsBookNook. Several of these are for the same giveaway - a Kindle Fire!
- A critique of a commercial (and yoga) from DamnFineHorror.
- An update on giving away books at AlwaysWriting (I might have to get some notes from this author, since I've had my eBooks up for FREE since the beginning of this month and I haven't even averaged one download per day!) and a similar post about selling successfully on ANewbiesGuidetoPublishing.
- A really interesting discussion on aggressive females and knightly males on AThreeWayTie.
- Facing your fears on PeacefromPieces.
- A blurb about an article that talks about McDonald's giving away books shared by FeatheredQuillBookReviews.
- A product was featured on ZoesBagBoutique, TheOliviaReader, and QueenKatDesigns.
- An author interview on Jeanzbookreadnreview (boy, that's a mouthful!!)
- MyNeuroticBookAffair talked about a book she was waiting to receive, while FeedYourReadingHabit talked about the books she got for Christmas!
- An exploratory essay on just how hard it is to write a book on LivingTheCreativeLife.
- FallIntoBooks reminded me that there is still time left to vote on the Teen Choice Book of the Year.
- A note on being a blog role model from SavingSimplySaid.

Yep, apparently there was a whole lot being done in the blogoverse in the last 24 hours! If you get a chance, check out these great posts!
