Indie Author Holiday Gift Guide Kindle Paperwhite #Giveaway

I'm sorry I'm late with this awesome post! I hope you are having a fantastic time finding great books to add to your reading list and also entering to win the big prize. I've been hearing so much about the Kindle Paperwhite. I might want one if I could, but so far the nook is working well and until it dies, there's no reason to switch, unless I suddenly get rich. Think lottery :D

Thanks for visiting and sharing with us!
