100 Posts? Let's Give Stuff Away!

I started blogging just a few months ago with the idea of finding other people interested in reading or writing, and I had no clue if anyone would ever read my blog. I had no clue how to do almost anything technical (thank you google for bringing so many helpful answers). I had no clue how many people there were online blogging about books until I got started.

And now, I have all my blogging friends to thank (or blame) for the enormous stack of books I have on the coffee table, the 100-page wishlist on my computer, the insane amount of time I spend surfing the library website, and the ridiculous number of book challenges I'm working on. Come on guys, quit reading so many awesome books so I don't have such a long wishlist!!! (Just kidding. Don't stop. Really.)

So to celebrate my little milestone at boldblueadventure, I'm giving stuff away. [Insert loud yayness here!!] I'm giving away The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende, My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult, Space by James Michener, and The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. To spread out to love, everyone has the chance to win 1 book. Leave a comment on this post to be entered, and make sure to say which book(s) you are interested in. If you mention it on your blog, I'll enter your name for an extra chance. Just especially for my international readers, if I draw your name, I'll send you a $15 Amazon gift card by email instead.

So in conclusion, Rusty wants you to enter my contest. And who can say no to the faux-hawk?


**Update: I ummm... forgot a deadline. So let's arbitrarily make it this Saturday, April 26th. I'll draw on Sunday.

YAY you, Kim! And yes, I can't resist that little pup of yours. Look at his eyes...

Please enter me for "The House of the Spirits". Thanks for this and blog buddies forever!

I share your sentiment. My wishlist is getting out of control. My TBR book pile is growing taller than I am now, it's not even funny. I have 5 pending book shipments. I can't wait for them to arrive!

Keep it up, you're doing great!

I just found your blog, and I'm loving it! Enter me in your giveaway, if you would. I'd love either the Michener or Allende books, since I've read the others. Thanks so much!!

Trish said...

Congrats on 100 posts! Great selection--I've read all except the Michener, which doesn't interest me...so I'm out for this one. BUT, I did mention it on my blog. Can I get a brownie for that? :)

Glad blogging has been such a great experience for you! I don't think it is for everyone...but I'm certainly grateful for it!

Susan said...

100 posts - congratulations! I just found your blog and really enjoy it. And please put me down for "the House of the Spirits", although if you don't ship to Canada, the Amazon gift card will do! thanks1 and I feel the way you do - I had no idea this huge book blogging community was out here, either. Isn't it great? and my TBR pile has now fallen over....and I carry endless lists of books I want...I love it!!

Becca said...

Wow, there are so many great giveaways out there! I'm going to have to come up with a giveaway of my own here soon.

But until then ... I'd love to have the Allende book or "The Memory Keeper's Daughter." :-)
