Welcome to the December bookshelf of signed thrillers! Can you believe this year is almost over? Hope you’ve read lots of good books!
I am shocked to say that this month will be 20 years since I started writing about books online. The first few years I had a Geocities site (remember that?) and then my husband purchased me the bookbitch.com domain as a birthday gift and the rest, as they say, is history. If you are curious to see some of the changes over the years, check out the Wayback Machine! They go back to 2001 and there are 300 saved pages. I hope you’ll take a walk into my past and let me know what you think in the comments.
To close out the year, there are lots of terrific books to win from bestsellers to debuts. More books may be added throughout the month, so check back often.
To enter, go to the Win Books page.
Best of luck!
