Last weekend, when I was sitting at 45 followers, I was contemplating a prize giveaway when I reached the special blogging milestone of 50 followers (I am truly shocked and humbled that this many cyber "strangers" find my ramblings worth reading -- THANK YOU!!). Well, between computer issues, school assignments, read-a-thon training....I have not given this idea much attention. Today I logged on and discovered that I have achieved that magic 50 goal!! OH -- you guys are the best!
I want to follow through with that promise to myself. My problem is -- I never quite know what to give away. I know that books are always welcomed :) --- but truly the books that I would consider as a give away, many of you have already read. I will be giving away a $20 Amazon gift certificate at the conclusion of the Summer Vacation Reading Challenge - so I don't want to duplicate those efforts (and since my husband just recently found employment after a 4 month lay-off, I should probably watch my pennies a bit). As I was doing some shopping last night I was struck with an inexpensive "bookish" idea -- that hopefully you will fun and thoughtful as well.
So, here is the deal: Leave a comment on this post anytime between now and the end of the read-a-thon (which for me ends at 7:00am on Sunday - but I will probably not check my blog that early - so let's say 3:00pm Sunday afternoon) and I will enter your name in the drawing. I don't want to reveal the gift - let's keep it a surprise - but I know that I even though it isn't a big gift, nor a book, I would enjoy receiving it myself.
Thank you all again for being so kind, accepting and supportive during my first 4 months as an official "blogger"
