For the months I’ve come back to use my Goodreads account again, I’ve come to realize something:

Book Depository: The Glorious Online Bookstore for Lazy Readers Like Moi

my book depository experience - Mara Was Here
A few months ago, I won a giveaway hosted by the lovely Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books which was the VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY I ever won. (Like, seriously, I didn’t join even a single giveaway until I started book blogging because I never knew where to find them.) The prize was a $50 book shopping spree at the Book Depository, and it was GLORIOUS.
