It's here. It's party time! As promised, I want to celebrate YOU, my followers--all the wonderful people that I've met through this thing called blogging. All the folks that help to make up my 300-plus follower tally. Who knew when I started my little blog--my little online reading journal, as I thought of it--that there would be over 300 folks who would be interested in what I do. Thanks so much for stopping by, leaving comments now and again, participating in memes that I post, and joining me in some challenges over the past year and four months. But enough babbling...let's get this party started.
My son found it and sent it to me. He thought it was on deviantart,
but I can't seem to find it no matter how I search.
In celebration of a year's worth of blogging and the gathering together of followers, I have put together the following prize packages for a 300-Plus Follower Celebration Giveaway:
Prize #1: $25.00 gift card from Amazon.
Prize #2: $20.00 gift card from Amazon.
Prize #3: $15.00 gift card from Amazon.
Prize #4: A package of three gently used books (click titles for synopses from Amazon) The Dark Lantern by Gerri Brightwell, Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Prize #5: A package of three gently used books (click titles for synopses): The Egyptologist by Arthur Phillips, Swan Song by Edmund Crispin, and Murder & Other Acts of Literature edited by Michele Slung (this last synopsis if from Barnes & Noble)
This particular giveaway is for followers who were signed up through my sidebar as of the time of this posting.* To enter please leave a comment below and, if you would, a mention of about how long you've been a follower [I don't expect exact dates :-) ] as well as your email address [example: phryne1969 AT gmail DOT com]. All followers are welcome to enter! If an international follower wins one of the gift card prizes and Amazon won't work, then we'll arrange something through The Book Depository or whatever works. Entries will be accepted through midnight on Wednesday, September 7, and winners will be selected by random number generator on Thursday. I will draw the winners in order of prize package beginning with Prize #1 and will assume that all entrants wish to be entered for any of the prize packages unless told otherwise. The winners will have 48 hours to respond to an email to claim their prize.
*Yes, I did print out the listing of all 369 followers so I can check. I wanted this giveaway to be a celebration for folks who have been supportive up till now. I'd rather not put following as a requirement to enter and then have folks signing up just for a chance to win. If you're not a follower now, I'd just ask you to check out the blog. If you like what you see, I'd love to have you join the folks on my block. If not, more giveaways will come along in the future that will NOT require follower status.
