My Blogiversary Giveaway!

I can't believe that my 2 year Blogiversary snuck up on me the way that it did!  I really don't think that my blog has changed that much over the first couple of years, but I am trying to personalize my entries more now to give you all a chance to get to know me better.  When I posted my very first entry I really had no idea what I was doing but everything just sort of fell into place with the help of all of you great fellow blogger that are out there!  So thank you everyone for making this such a creative and inviting community for us to share our bookish thoughts with each other.  I really look forward to getting to know so many more of you in the future.

Early in October I was trying to think of a giveaway I could have for this momentous event but nothing much was coming to mind.  Well thanks to my husband, I now have a giveaway in mind for you all!

1st place will be a $20 Amazaon gift card.
2nd place will be a $10 Amazon gift card.
And the 3rd place winner will have the option of choosing one of the following books from my gently read collection:

The Tudor Rose by Margaret Campbell Barnes

Lone Star Legend by Gwendolyn Zepeda

April and Oliver  by Tess Callahan

The Life O'Reilly by Brian Cohen

Now for the giveaway!

To enter this contest you must be at least 18 and live in the U.S. or Canada.

For one entry leave me a comment including your email address below.

For two additional entries, blog about this contest or add the link to your sidebar.

Please include your email so I will have a way to contact you if you win.  Use a spam-thwarting format such as myemail.address AT gmail DOT com or myemail.address [at] gmail [dot] com.

You will have until November 19th to enter and I will draw for winners on or after November 20th.

Wow - you have really built yourself a strong blogging community in such a short period of time Jo-Jo! Personalizing posts are always a hit - peeking behind the blog so to speak. I'm drawn more to those than anything else. Keep up the great work. And thanks for the generous giveaway opportunity:
