One Year, One Month, One Day, One Incredible Giveaway

1 Year, 1 Month, and 1 Day ago, my dear friend and writing partner Peggy Eddleman started her delectable blog Will Write For Cookies. 1 week later, I followed her and re-started mine. What can I say? I'm a follower.

So since we started this blogging journey together, it only seemed appropriate to celebrate it together. And we want to give stuff away! Sure it's a bit like buying everyone dinner at your own birthday party, but whatev. We want to say gracias, merci, and THANK YOU to all of you for being our friends, supporting and teaching us so much in just one year. If I could, I'd spoon every single one of you! Or at least some of you ;). I wouldn't want to get a reputation for being a spooning slut. In any case, we want this giveaway to be totally awesome. And how do you go totally awesome? Well, you give away this:



That’s right! Always wanted an e-reader? Here’s your chance to win! Already have one? You can get your choice of a gift certificate to Amazon, your choice of books from The Book Depository, or if you’re in the U.S., books from your favorite indie bookstore! This giveaway is even open internationally! (Where you live might affect the prize available to you. You’d have a choice of Amazon if it’s available in your country, or books from The Book Depository anywhere in the world.)

All you have to do to enter is:
  • Make sure you are following both Peggy and I
  • Comment on both of our blogoversary posts
  • Tell us how much you love us
  • Promise to give us a kidney if we should ever be in need of one.
(Just kidding on those last two!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway


So if you haven't already, head on over to Peggy's at Will Write For Cookies, for more chances to win. We will choose ONE winner next Monday, July 23rd--my actual blogoversary.

And one last thing, I have to give Peggy the Biggest thanks for Being the Best Blogging Bff a girl could ask for. Peggy, you are such a B-Word! You have definitely earned your spooning session!

  21. I really had no idea that you and Peggy started your blogs so close to mine. So happy for the 2 of you. And this contest is awesome!!!

    I just read Bitterblue and I really liked it, but I wouldn't call it a summer read. I'm about to read Insurgent. Yay! Oh and you should get the tiny license plate for your bike and put the B-word on the back. That's my vote.

  22. Spooning I can cope with. Just so long as you don't offer to fork! :o|
    Skulduggery Pleseant is a fun read :o)
