Boxes and unpacking and free books, oh my!

I don't know if I've mentioned on here before, but The Professor and I have been building a house the better part of the last six months. Okay we've been paying to have a house built, we never even lifted so much as a hammer. But this past week it was done and we closed and the U-haul came and now we live in a veritable maze of boxes.

The unpacking is going fairly well, but I don't seem to be making much of a dent. There are still so many boxes and Rubbermaid crates to go through. But one thing I have found are all my author's copies and well, I think it's time to get rid of some. So if you're interested then all you need to do is make a comment here and you might win an autographed copy of a book from my backlist. I'll pick 5 winners. Okay we need a topic, comment and tell me about your favorite or least favorite movie and what your favorite TV show is right now.

In addition to this spontaneous contest, I'm also running a Spring Fling contest with Fresh Fiction.

In the meantime, please allow me to share the first review for DESIRE ME.

"I did not just read this story, I inhaled it in one sitting. Danger, mystery, romance, suspense, and history all blend together with a healthy dose of the Atlantis legend. The result is a book destined for your Keeper shelf. Robyn DeHart has written a treasure trove of trouble that will have you reading at top speed!" ~ Huntress Reviews

Enjoy your new home, Robyn, and good luck unpacking everything soon. I might be moving in the next several months, and can already hear the grumbling over moving all my boxes of books, lol.

I have a few favorite TV shows, have to say Lost and finally seeing how it all ends this year.

My favorite movies tend to be the older classics - Breakfast at Tiffany's, Casablanca, An Affair to Remember; and Last of the Mohicans.

Congrat on your new house! I just wish I had a bigger house it wouldn't have to be new, just glad I have a house!

I am not real sure what my favorite movie is but I did like The Holiday movie pretty good, just can't think right now. My favorite TV show would have to be The Good Wife, without a doubt. Its one great show!


Jane said...

Congrats on your new house. My current favorite movie is "The Hangover" and my favorite TV show is "NCIS."

Happy moving - it's always so fun to try to figure out where all that "stuff" is going to go, but it feels so good to finally have it all put away.
I think my favorite recent movie is Ironman. My favorite TV show - there are so many, how to choose? I guess I'd have to say Lost, it still intrigues me, even though I'm more confused than ever this season.

Lois said...

Hope everything gets nice and fixed up really fast! :) Me, can't imagine all the boxes. . .but then, most of my books are already in boxes. LOL :)

TV - well, don't really watch much beyond the news anymore, but Star Trek: TNG is always a good one to put down.


Martha Lawson said...

Congratulations on the new house!! Don't envy you the unpacking, tho.
Well, I'm not a big movie watcher, so I can't think of anything I like or dislike at the moment!! My favorite tv show is hands down. NCIS (I love Mark Harmon) NCIS Los Angeles is a close second..

Michelle Santiago said...

hi robyn! if there's something i dislike more than packing, it's unpacking. good luck! my favorite tv show right now is criminal minds--i just discovered it and i'm absolutely in love (especially with dr. reed)... but this could change once glee is back on!

I have a few favourite TV shows right now: Supernatural, Lost, Vampire Diaries, Fringe. Love 'em!

For films, I always tend to go back to Underworld and Resident Evil - I enjoy the suspense and deepness of them. :)

Jillian said...

I like Castle for tv show- he's just so cute and a writer, to boot!

Fav movie has to be Sense and Sensibility- the one with Alan Rickman as Col Brandon. He's so wonderful.

COngrats on your new home!

Roberta said...

I've never read one of your books! But I'd like to!

Good luck with all the unpacking!

Robyn DeHart said...

Y'all have some great taste in TV shows and movies. I love Criminal Minds and Castle - those are must watches at my house.

Keep responding, I won't pick a winner until the end of the week.

WK said...

Congrats on the move.
My favorite TV show is BONES. I have all the previous seasons on DVD and have my DVR set to record it and watch the reruns all the time. I just adore this show.

Favorite movie, humm probably still Mary Poppins.

BTW great review from Huntress, congrats on it.

HOpe you enjoy the new house!!!

Danny said...

Hi Robyn,

big congrats to the new home!

I really enjoy Vampire Diaries at the moment.

mrsshukra said...

Congrats, Robyn!

I got Seduce Me and plan to read it soon!

All time favorite movie: Meet Me in St. Louis.

I watch too much TV and have a lot of favorite shows, some of which are Medium, Criminal Minds and Modern Family. Most disappointing show for me right now: American Idol. Been loyal since 2003 but I don't know if I can watch more this season.

Virginia, I agree about The Good Wife, great new series I never miss. Besides Lost, I mentioned, other favorites I never miss: 24, Fringe, The Closer, Burn Notice, White Collar, Army Wives, Numbers, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Cold Case. Use my VCR/DVD a lot, lol.

Unknown said...

We also watch Fringe, The Closer, Burn Notice, NCIS, Bones and I love Castle, but The Good Wife is my favorite. We us the DVR a lot in my house. I am also disapointed with American Idol, it just doesn't have the talent this year!
