GIVEAWAY!!! - 1 year blogoversary/50 followers 7/4/11 - 7/25/11

This giveaway is no longer open to entries!!  Winners will be announced in a few days - thank you so much to everyone who participated!! :D

The time has come, ladies and gentlemen!!  Let the festivities begin!!!

Here are the prizes:

Prize #1 - International!
Prize pack of 100 Cupboards, Dandelion Fire, and The Chestnut King by N. D. Wilson
These books are seriously some of my all time favorites...ever!!!  They make me laugh hysterically, they give me chills, they keep me fascinated with their world, they grip me.  How can I not share this with the rest of the world?!  They are good for young readers (11 and up), as well as for adults.  My dad, 40 something, just read them and LOVED them.  Around the house, we call this author, "The Genius".  They're a little like Harry Potter in the fact that while the first book has a younger feel, they grow with the characters and get more intense as they go on.
If I could give everyone in the world a copy of every book this guy has written, I would.  Let that be the measure of how much I love these books - and how much I think YOU should read them.  That's right - YOU!  ;)
(I make this a big deal because I haven't written reviews.  I want to do it justice, but there's really no way to do that except for you to read it for yourself!)

One winner will receive one paperback copy of each book, delivered from The Book Depository.  If they ship to your country, you may enter into the contest!  Check here before you enter.

Prize #2 - US Only!
The second prize is a very lightly used, almost brand-new, practically still on the shelf copy of Timeless by Alexander Monir.  (Click on the title for my review.)

One winner will receive this hardcover copy!! :D

  13. Yay! I'm you're 100th follower! :D I would have added you on Goodreads but either I'm really slow or it's not anywhere to be found, but I couldn't seem to make my way there, so I'll just have to settle for 2 entries. Thanks! :)

  14. I must be really tired. In that previous post, I didn't mean "you're", I meant YOUR hundredth follower. Hahaha.
