My baby is back and A “From My Shelf to Yours" book giveaway

I had a less than happy week this week, all because I had to change my glasses. Just like kids fear going to the dentist I fear and hate going to the opticians.

For one, they prod and poke and do all manner of things to not only my eyes but my face and I feel like I should be leaking somewhere when I leave there.

Anyhow I need new lens – according to the little man with the big needle.  I wear glasses not only for vision correction but for my vertigo as well. You know how kids wear helmet to stabilize themselves – I wear glasses. The long and short of it is, I will fall down if I go without them for long periods of time.

Anyhow I had to wear my second pair for the week which are the wire framed one - I don't like them at all.

My baby is the red and black sexy little number below. I have used the same frame or got the exact copy every time I get the lens change for the last few years… 

Now that they are back I feel whole again and to celebrate I am joining Ms.  M -The Blog Moonlight to Twilight in her   “From My Shelf to Yours" book giveaway

The books in Contest 1 look great and I'm really happy that I live in Germany aka the rest of the world.

EH, I love your "baby" and I'm happy for you that they are back. I too hate going to the eye doctor and having to be tested and then waiting for the glasses to come in.

It's funny though because both of your glasses are similar to mine. My current glasses are very similar to your except for the color and my spare looks almost exactly like your other pair. Small world, lol.

Blodeuedd on 15 May 2010 08:09 said...

Great idea :)
Hm guess I am also doing this in a way.

And ohhh the goodies in contest 1, yes I am in contest 1 :D

Glasses, I am not loving mine at the moment, not to mention that I need new ones cos I can't see with them

Rikki on 15 May 2010 09:50 said...

Oh, I LOVE your red and black glasses. Very sexy!

It's good to see a book give away for the rest of the world for once. Too many out there are only for the US and Canada which makes us feel a bit forgotten. I'm going to blog about it to get the word around a bit.
Happy Saturday!

Ohh I love your glasses! I don't wear glasses myself though.

Yay on the contest =) Contest 1 that is! *g*. To seduce a Sinner looks amazing!
Have a great weekend

Nice glasses! I have the same shape frames, but mine are dark blue, nearly black.

I'm so happy you decided to join me in sharing books from our shelves!

:o)

Lea on 15 May 2010 15:45 said...

Oh EH I hear you about the change of glasses 'less than happy'. I was forced to switch to progressive lenses over the past year and was dizzy and blind for weeks..

I'm glad you got your favourite frames back - they are too cool.

Please don't enter me in the contest, I'm past the point of drowning in books and would rather see others enjoy. In fact I need to join Ms.M's campaign to clear the shelves a little.

Fiction Vixen on 15 May 2010 16:59 said...

Gah, I hear you on the glasses. I hate getting new frames. If they are not right, I don't feel right. Love the sexy red frames EH. :)

Chris on 15 May 2010 17:13 said...

I'm glad you have your glasses back and are feeling more yourself!

Not entering the contest, but I'll mention it on linkity next week!

Erotic Horizon on 16 May 2010 10:38 said...

@Lily..

What can I say - great minds think alike or at the least have similiar glasses..

I find the wire ones lighter but that my baby just give me that little extra kick in my walk...

Definitely a bonus to have similiar glasses along with the books we love to read...

Erotic Horizon on 16 May 2010 10:40 said...

@Rikki

Yup - I rember when I first saw it - I thought I want that cute little number - I can't believe grown women drool over a pair of glasses..

I did...

The ROTW so need more contest... Thanks you so much fo rthe bump...

Erotic Horizon on 16 May 2010 10:43 said...

@Ms. M..

Blue glasses -I must go google those..

I was thinking of getting a green blend for my second pair - something Hunter green mixed...

Same shaped frame though..

I have so much books stacked around the house, and this is a neat way to share them all...

Erotic Horizon on 16 May 2010 10:45 said...

@Lea

You have those dizzy spells as well - I thought mine were only headaches until they figured out it was eyes that was causing it..

It's like getting a favourite toy back - sweet feeling..

Why do you think I am having the giveaway - too much books, too little time..

E.H>

Erotic Horizon on 16 May 2010 10:47 said...

@FV..

I know that feeling about the not right frames..

You need something to make you step out with confident.

Wonky frames just don't do it for me..

I hate going to the eye doc too - always bad news "need stronger lens" - I never get a happy "you are the same" or "you are better". Anyways I would like to be in contest 2.
