2-YEAR BLOGOVERSARY CELEBRATION

It's hard for me to believe, but I've been blogging here at Reading World for 2 years. (Actually, a little over 2 years. My first post was on October 13, 2010 and my first review was on October 14 (a review of Great Maria by Cecelia Holland- still one of my all-time favorite books.)

Blogging has been a great way to keep track of my reading and to share the books I've enjoyed. More importantly, it has inspired me to branch out. Being part of the blogging community has introduced me to a lot of great books I might never have discovered on my own.

I've enjoyed getting to know other bloggers by following their posts and by taking part in various memes and hops, and I hope to keep on blogging, despite some intermittent lulls.

And now, I want to show my appreciation to my readers and followers. Cold weather is sweeping in. It's time to kick back under a blanket with a mug of coffee/cocoa/tea and read a good book. So I'm offering a choice of either 1) $15 Starbucks gift card (US only) 2) a $15 Barnes and Noble gift card (US only)  or 3) a book valued up to $15 anywhere The Book Depository ships (US or international.)



The giveaway is open until Saturday 10/27.


To enter, leave a comment stating which one of these you would prefer to win along with your email address so I can contact you. You don't need to be a follower to enter, but followers get one extra entry.

  1. You know I just want to wish you a happy anniversary. I've enjoyed your blog. I'm not going to enter your contest because I already won one of your contests (maybe your one year?) before, so I'll give someone else a chance. Congrats!

  3. Yay on your bloggyversary! :) Great idea for a giveaway. I'd take the Starbucks gift card. I've got enough on my shelf that remains unread and who doesn't need coffee?

  24. Happiest of blogoversaries to you!!! Here's to many more years of book blogging.

    I'd love either card. Buying books and coffee are probably my two greatest downfalls - haha!
