Pregnancy Update and Hand Typed Bookmark Giveaway (ends Sep 21st)

So it’s been some time since I chatted about anything but books on my blog, and even that has been rather sparse! Though I have been reading a steady stream of books, I have only reviewed a small portion of them.

With my pregnancy progressing well and an inevitable ‘blog hiatus’ on the horizon I thought it was about time I checked in. I have just under 2 weeks until my due date and I’m excitedly anticipating the arrival of our little bundle of joy… and keen to find out what everyone else seems to want to know…

is it a girl or a boy?!

Enjoying a Boost Juice at 38 weeks

I’ve enjoyed the banter that goes on when people inspect my belly and give me a very certain prediction of our baby’s sex.  So, I thought why not incorporate the guessing game into a long overdue blog giveaway!

It’s also a good opportunity to “show off” my expanding Etsy store, Bookish Gifts which features a beautiful range of literary quotes and poems hand typed with my c1960’s Remington vintage typewriter. I’ll be giving away ONE hand typed bookmark with a bookish quote (of winner’s choice) from my store.


Bookmark quotes to choose from:

To enter:

1/ Like my Facebook page: Bookish Gifts and share it with your friends.

2/ Leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post with your name, country and preferred bookmark quotes.

Also ensure you list your email when you register your comment so you don’t have to list it publicly in the actual comments field- this is how I will contact you!

3/ And just for fun… have a guess! Boy or Girl?

Oh and if you haven’t already I’d also love you to stop by and like my blog FB page for The Australian Bookshelf.


This is an international giveaway.

The winner will be contacted via email (listed in the comment you leave) and will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is selected. If my baby arrives early… there may be a slight delay in making initial contact with the winner!

Giveaway ends on Monday September 21st at 5pm. (Sydney time).

Good luck!
