Smugglivus is coming!!!

On December 1st, we officially kick-off Smugglivus, our month-and-a-bit-long, end of the year, event, now in its second year. Inspired by Seinfeld’s Festivus, Smugglivus starts on Dec 1st and ends on Jan 7th , the date of our second bloggiversary.

And, now we officially unveil the amazing poster that Kmont did for us and give you the dirty details. Ta-daaaaaaaaaaaaaa:

(We are completely in love with it!)

So, what can you expect from Smugglivus?

Guests, loads of guests

For the duration of the event, every single day, we will have at least one guest, from authors and publishers to prominent bloggers talking about their favourite reads of 2009, and what we can expect from them in 2010. The line up includes those in the poster (points to pretty poster) and many, many more.

Feats of Strength

The Feats of Strength is nothing more than the usual dare but taken to the next level. We each will read a book the other picked that is more than outside their comfort zones. It is like in another- galaxy- zone.

Airing of Grievances

Oh, one of our favourite Smugglivus rites in which we basically well, rant. About books, TV shows, movies, reading and…..maybe even, each other. *gasp*

Best of Lists:

That will be our Ana and Thea’s Most Excellent Books of 2009 list and the Best of the Rest (TV and Movies)


We have TONS of books to giveaway on every Saturday of the month and with some of the guest posts as well.

And that is basically it. We will of course, continue with our regular schedule with reviews (although less than the usual 3-4 each per week) but The Boob Tube and Radar posts will go on a break till January.

We hope you join us for the event and have as much fun as we had organising it!

    Since I’m a huge fan of Festivus, I’m sure I will be visiting. Anything inspired by Seinfeld makes me all warm and fuzzy!
