I'm having a Giveaway to celebrate my 1st anniversary as a book blogger.
The Giveaway is open to new and old followers, no matter where you live, and you do not have to have a blog to win.
About the past year......I started this blog on June 28, 2008 because I live and breathe books. Now just 51 weeks later I've posted 306 entries; received approximately 1,100 comments (but just 69 in the 1st 6 months of blogging - in the future I plan to help new bloggers by commenting often -- starting out is tough). I've also had 1,000 profile views, 90+ subscribers, and 50 (+) followers. I'm pleased to say the least, and in case you haven't guessed, now at the one year mark, I'm also Blog Obsessed!
Two blogs in particular inspired me to begin blogging. These blogs are truly terrific in my opinion, and if my blog is someday just half as interesting as theirs, I'll be thrilled. My inspiration and thanks goes to: Wendy at Caribous Mom and another Wendy (maybe it's the name......ya think?) at Musings of a Bookish Kitty. Thanks ladies :)
It's not just Wendy and Wendy though, in the past year I have met so many wonderful book lovers through blogging. All of your reviews and your eclectic choices in books have added to my ever expanding wish list. I'd like to thank you all, by giving you a chance to win a little something (book related of course).
1st Prize - $25.00 Barnes and Noble Gift Card (If the winner is from outside the US a $25.00 Amazon Gift Certificate will be sent to the winner instead).
2nd Prize - The Chosen One; Carol Lynch William (audio cd book - like new, played one time)--it's very good!
3rd Prize - The Black Dog Summer on the Vineyard Cookbook; Joseph Hall and Elaine Sullivan - (a popular place in my neck of the woods) .
HERE'S HOW TO ENTER...............
I don't want to make you jump through a lot of hoops. So if you'd like a chance at the giveaways, here is all you have to do.
- Become a follower of my blog, and tell me the best book or books you've read so far in 2009.
- If you are already a follower, just tell me the name of the best book (s) you've read in 2009. and you will be entered in the drawing.
- BE SURE in either case to include your email in the same post.
- Winners will be drawn at 8PM EST on Sunday June 28th (My 1st Blogiversary) using random.org . All winners will be notified on that same day. (You will have (3) days to respond or alternates will be selected).
