Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research

The Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research is in full swing and they are hoping for a spectacular year this time.  Last year, the auction raised nearly $280,000 and if they can beat that this year, that will mean that the Online Auction has raised over a million dollars since it started.  That’s amazing.

For some diabetes can have a huge impact and I have been very fortunate that it hasn’t affect my mother nearly as much.  For my mother, by simply controlling her stress levels and watching her diet, she has been able to managed her diabetes, but not everyone is so lucky.  With this money, maybe one day the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami will be able to find a cure.

For any reader out there, the auction has a vast selection of reading material up for grabs.  Between gift basket sets, a few ARCs, a ton of paranormal novels and fantasy novels, plus all the other novels not in the UF/PNR genre, there is definitely something that should peak everyone’s interest.  Just to give you a taste, check out some of these grab packages that are available for bidding:

  • Yasmine Galenorn has donated two baskets – an Otherworld and Indigo Court – filled with tons of goodies including books, autographed cover prints and edible goodness.
  • Lori Handeland has donated a complete set of her Phoenix Chronicles novels.
  • Vicki Pettersson has donated a complete set of her Signs of the Zodiac novels, including the upcoming release Cheat the Grave.
  • MaryJanice Davidson has donated an autographed set of her Queen Betsy novels.
  • JR Ward has donated an autographed set of her Brotherhood of the Black Dagger novels.

One of the great things about the Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research is that it’s not just about the readers.  There are a ton of other packages as well including Vintage & Costume Jewelry, Art & Decor, Once in a Lifetime Experiences and Coach purses.

The bidding is getting hot and fierce with some of these items, so if you want in on the action, don’t delay.  Although, I would make sure to take out that second mortgage for a few items.  The autographed set of JR Ward’s Brotherhood of the Black Dagger novels is already over $400 and I’m sure that’s not the only thing that has gotten that large.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.
