Contest Roundup + Update(?)

Hi all. I haven't been nearly on top of working away at my TBR pile as I would've liked. Last week, the last week before my spring break, I got a stupid cold, or sinus infection, or something like that. Whatever you want to call it, it was stupid. I managed to go six weeks among 1490 sick students and ended up catching the "Swat bug" in the end. At least it didn't affect my swimming performance earlier this semester, hah.

Anyway, since I'm on spring break I hope to read more books (I've got a BUNCH of great ones that I'm just hungering to start) and write reviews. But that's in between writing two papers and reading two 400+ books, of course. (Luckily I have a backlog of 200+ reviews that I've written in the past two years that I had nowhere to collect until I started my blog, so you won't be able to tell the old from the new!)

Anywayyy... rambling there. Here is a collection of giveaways that I've discovered over the past week. Feel free to comment me if you know of any more that you'd like me to put up!
