250 Follower Giveaway!

I'm thrilled! This morning I visited my blog and saw that I now had 250 wonderful followers! I'm so grateful to each and every one of you who visit my blog regularly, leave comments, or enter contests- your participation makes blogging a lot more fun for me. I started blogging on February 18, 2008 and am amazed how much my blog has grown since then. I've met some wonderful bloggers (whose well-written reviews have caused me to buy more books than I care to admit to), I work with some fantastic publishers, publicists, and authors, and I've read and reviewed a ton of books. I now have an out-of-control TBR pile and a better idea of what I enjoy as a reader.

So, I want to thank YOU, fellow bloggers and readers, by hosting a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a book of their choice under $20 from The Book Depository. This contest is open to anywhere that The Book Depository ships to.

But wait, there's more! If I reach 300 followers before the end of this giveaway, a second winner will win a book of their choice under $10! So, not only will you get a bonus entry for spreading the word about this contest, but you may have a better chance of winning a book!

The Rules:

1. 1 winner will win a book of their choice under $20 USD available from The Book Depository. The winner is limited to choosing 1 book under $20. If a total of 300 followers are reached before the end of the contest, a 2nd winner will win a book of choice under $10 USD. If a total of 300 followers is not reached, no 2nd prize will be awarded.

2. This contest is open to residents of anywhere The Book Depository ships to.

3. The winner of the contest needs to be a verifiable follower through Google Friend Connect.

4. Winner will be notified by e-mail and will have 48 hours to respond.

5. Contest closes on November 3, 2010 at midnight EST.

To Enter:

1. *Mandatory Entry* To enter, just tell me which book is number one on your wishlist right now. You do not have to choose this book as your prize if you are delcared the winner. You must be a Google Friend Connect follower of this blog for your entry to be considered valid. Please include your e-mail address with your comment.

2. *Bonus Entry* Spread the word about this contest for one bonus entry! Facebook it, Tweet it, blog about it, whatever you wish to do. Please leave me a separate comment letting me know how you spread the word.
