Giving Thanks
Here in the U.S. it is Thanksgiving Day . A day for giving thanks and getting way too much food. Instead of doing a traditional Thursday tips post, I wanted to take a minute to thank the regular contributors at Girl Who Reads - Claire, Alison, and Heather.

I am so very grateful for the continued contributions of these 3 ladies. They have made maintaining Girl Who Reads easier. I can count on them each and every month for great content.

Claire, Alison, and Heather - THANK YOU! I hope you know you are appreciated.

Blogging is not an easy task. It is often a thankless job (and payless job). It takes courage to post your thoughts where the world can see them, judge them. As of late, it can also be a scary endeavor.

If you follow a blogger or are an author who has had their work featured, please consider taking a moment this weekend to say thank you. Plus if you are shopping Amazon this holiday season, consider visiting your favorite blogger first. Many (including Girl Who Reads) are Amazon affiliates and a small fee is earned when purchases are made. What a great way to show support!

To the authors I have worked with and those I've read - Thank You! You have given me hours of entertainment and support I appreciate the professional and friendly relationships we have cultivated. In a time when blogger/author relationships have been publicly contentious, you will never know the depth of my appreciation for the gracious attitudes.

To the many bloggers I have met over the years Even if we don't talk as much as we once did I still remember you. Without your unfailing support, Girl Who Reads probably wouldn't be here and definitely wouldn't be flourishing - Thank You!

Help Wanted
Do you want to join a great team who loves books? I'm looking to add two more book lovers to Girl Who Reads.

Featured Writer/Interviewer: I'm looking for another monthly contributor to start in January. This is an excellent opportunity for writers and authors. As a Top 50 Book Blog, Girl Who Reads will give exposure to your name and writing style and be added material for your resume or media kit. As a monthly contributor you can choose the topic of your posts, though I would prefer someone who is interested in focusing on bookish news. The column would run on the 4th Friday of every month. At this time, there is no pay for this position.

Staff Reviewer: I'm also looking for a staff reviewer to join Girl Who Reads in January. The reviewer would be responsible for submitting at least 2 reviews per month. Girl Who Reads reviews all genres, except for erotica. I would like a reviewer that has a preference for the romance and/or fantasy genres. At this time pay is in the form of free books (mostly ebooks).

If you are interested in either position, please contact me via email donna @, In the email, please tell me a little about yourself and your reading/writing interests.
