Happy Blogoversary To Me! (With International Giveaway)

Today is my 2 year Blogoversary! To celebrate, I debated long and hard on what to do. I have a huge stack of books that I thought about giving away, but my reading tastes are pretty wide, I think. Therefore, my followers' tastes are just as wide. I finally decided to just have a gift card giveaway. It means only one of you will win, and it's not much, BUT I get to include my international followers, and one of you will get to pick any book you want. No worries, that huge stack of books will still get a great new home!

The giveaway:

$10 to spend at Amazon for the US folks, or

$10 to spend at The Book Depository for the International folks(please make sure they do deliver to where you live).

How to enter:
Simply leave me a comment(with your spam-free e-mail) telling me what book you will probably buy if you win. You can change your mind. I'm just curious what books are topping out the wishlists out there.

Extra Entries(you can leave extra entries in the same comment, just put (+2), for example)

+2 for my old followers(before May 15th, 2012)
+1 for new followers
+1 follow me on Twitter
+1 like my page on Facebook
+1 subscribe by e-mail(on the top right side of my blog)

*If you're having trouble leaving a comment, you can enter by e-mail (bluerosesheart at yahoo dot com). Just put "Giveaway Entry" in the subject line.

**You must be at least 13 to enter.

This giveaway will end May 21st at midnight. I will use Random.org to pick the winner.

Thank you to each and every one of you for sticking with me! :) Good luck!

  4. Happy blogoversary!! So fun that our blogoversaries are less than a couple of months apart, and so wonderful that I got to "meet" you 2 years ago! You are a great blogger and a great friend. :)

    At the moment, I'm not sure what book I would buy (I'm hoping to get Veil of Pearls by MaryLu Tyndall for review, but if not I would really want to buy that one when it comes out!). I have so many great books in my TBR stack right now! :) If I won the Amazon.com gift card, I confess I might be tempted to use it for music or a movie or something... ;)
