5 years [giveaway]

Five years ago today I posted my first blog post. I think that's a pretty good excuse for a giveaway.

I like surprises so this giveaway will be a little bit different than the usual book-blog giveaway. There will be at least two winners and the prizes will be customized. If you win, I'll send you a book off your wishlist1 and a copy of one of my favorite books that I think you'll like.

I'll be posting my choices for the winners on the blog, so don't enter if that makes you uncomfortable. Don't worry, I won't be buying erotica. I don't know any of you well enough for that.

I'm using the commission I've earned from Powells Partner Program to buy the books.2 As I mentioned above, there will be at least two winners. The cost of my book selections will decide how many more. The more the merrier!

If you win, you'll need to be willing to provide me with your mailing address. The prizes may ship directly from Powells and they may or may not be wrapped.

Who can enter?
  • No location restrictions
  • Family and real-life friends are eligible
  • If you are a minor, have a parent or guardian submit an entry on your behalf
  • You don't have to be a follower, but you'll earn an extra entry if you are
Interested? Click here to enter. You have until Wednesday, August 10 (11:59 pm, EDT).3

Thanks for reading! I'm looking forward to the shopping I have ahead of me.
