I never win anything

by Robyn

It true. Very rarely do I win things. Or when I win things, it’s usually not anything that I really, really, wanted. It’s more along the lines of I entered to win it because, well, I like free stuff. Free is always better than having to¬†dish out the cash for something.

A few weeks ago, while bored at work (which is quite often), I entered a variety of online contests for free travel stuff. I kept my fingers cross that I would get a call or an email informing me that I’d won an all expenses paid trip somewhere. Anywhere for that matter!

I didn’t quite get a free trip, but I did win a copy of the new book “the lost girls” by the gals from lostgirlsworld.com. I quick email reply with my mailing address, and a week later I got a crisp new copy of this 500+ page gem from Harper Collins.

Only today am I finally getting a chance to start reading. I’m looking forward to the 500 page read as it will not only push me to save more money for future travels, but it will help me reach my goal of reading over 10,000 pages in 2011.
