Swagbucks Book Club – How Do You Plead?

Posted by on Fri, November 1st, 2013 at 10:00 am

Welcome Swagbucks Book Club members – have you recovered from Halloween yet?  Just in case you have a sugar hangover I’ll make it short this week.

The reading selection for November is the new crime thriller Accused by Bestselling Author Lisa Scottoline.  I am excited to be partnering with St Martin’s Press on this title as they will be giving Swagbucks Book Club members exclusive access to the author herself!  Join us this month to discuss this title on Friday, November 22.  On that day you can also submit your questions for Lisa Scottoline with her answers published here in the blog the last Friday of the month – November 29th (aka Black Friday).  How cool is that?

Sign up for to receive alerts about Lisa Scottoline’s upcoming books as well as other information from Macmillan and its partners AND EARN 5 Swag Bucks! Not a bad way to start November. CLICK HERE While you are there check out the first two chapters of Accused and watch a trailer

When award-winning author Lisa Scottoline introduced the all-female law firm of Rosato & Associates she thrilled readers, captivated hearts, and revolutionized crime fiction. Now, everyone’s favorite team of unstoppable female lawyers takes on their unusual case yet. A gifted thirteen year old believes the man convicted of her sister’s murder has been wrongfully imprisoned, and that the real killer is still out there. So was justice really served? Lawyer Mary DiNunzzio will go to all lengths to find the truth…

 

Today’s discussion: Do you tailor your reading selection to the season or time of year?  If so – please share more about what you choose when and why.

On Monday I will choose 3 random people to award with 25 Swag Bucks each! Monday is also a great day because it will be Double Stuffed Swagbucks which means you can earn DOUBLE the Swag Bucks for much of what you already do PLUS the entire Swagbucks Shop & Earn category will be Double the Swag Bucks back!
