Lazy Days of Summer Hop!

Lazy Days of Summer – Jul. 27-Aug. 1, 2012

Hosted by Colorimety & I Am A Reader, Not A Writer

The book Random Magic, by Sasha Soren, is filled with quirky,
colorful characters and places – but it’s also about an unexpected journey.

We thought it’d be fun to offer something quirky and colorful, that would
also be useful for unexpected journeys. So, on this hop stop, you can
win a cute beach bag that’ll make you smile every time you look at it
– and it’ll also be handy for holding some of the books you might win
elsewhere on this hop.

All that’s left for you to do is toss in one or two summer reads, find
a spot for your towel or beach lounge, and treat yourself to cool
drink with a little umbrella in it.


Prize: Your choice of one (1) beach bag
Details: Summer is filled with sunshine and bright colors, so it’s a
perfect excuse to break out something vivid, in cheerful colors. Why
head out with a boring beach bag? Our offer is your pick of one (1) of
the two quirky beach bags shown below.

About (manufacturer desc.): Blue octopus beach tote. You don’t have
eight arms, but this cheerful little tote is perfect to help you carry
your gear! Made for beach trips, this tote includes an inner pocket
and outer pockets to keep your books, pens and drink bottle organized.
Mesh panels allow sand to fall through, so you leave the sand at the
beach, where it’s happier. 15.2 x 11.2 x 0.5 inches (38.60 x 28.44 x
1.27 centimeters).


About (manufacturer desc.): Little orange crab beach tote.
Super-bright, red-orange tote bag features inner pocket just big
enough for one or two books and a bottle of water, outer pocket for

If you’re curious about the book, Random Magic, by Sasha Soren,
here’s a bit more about this title.

When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main
character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must
book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world

Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch
with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it

Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Strüths,
and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful
vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually
inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.
