100 Follower Giveaway!!! 9/30-10/7 (Closed)

Good Morning!!!!!!!

I have now reached 100 Followers!!!! Wooo Hooo!!!!




I'm excited over here. Having a mini party in my cubicle at work (okay its not really a party, I just did a little dance and I'm eating snacks at my desk, but you get the picture...by the way, paper cuts and hand sanitizer don't work well together). I love each and every one of my followers and I thank you all for Following me. I never thought anyone would be interested in anything I had to say, and to see the way my page has grown over the short time I have been blogging is insane.

I still remember what was going through my mind when I decided to do this: "I love these book blogs, they're so resourceful. I feel like a stalker going to these same blog every day to see if there's a new post, Lurking in the shadows and secretly reading everything they write, but not commenting because they don't know who I am. Maybe if I had a book blog they'd look at it, or I'd at least be able to comment. Oh and I can tell other people what I read and give them great Ideas like I got. Maybe I'll even have my own little lurking stalkers. No, they probably wont even read it. How will people even know I exist. I know! I'll do some research. (does research) Ugh, I'll have to actually write like every day or so. Why am I even upset, I don't do much anyway. Why not do something productive and spend my time doing nothing blogging about my many books I read. Okay....Here...We...Go!" And just like that my blog was made. I giggled with excitement every time i received a comment and felt like Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura, "You Like me! You Really Like me!!!" Its so exciting.

So, to show my gratitude, I am hosting a giveaway. It will run from today, Friday, September 30, 2011 until Friday, October 7, 2011 and the winner will be announced the very next day. The prize will be of the winners choosing. They have the option of receiving:
A $25 Barnes and Noble Gift card: 

OR

Any one book worth up to $25 from the Book Depository:
 The winner will be chosen via Random.org and, once notified of winning, will need to respond within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen. If I receive more than 75 applicants, I will give out both prizes. The first place winner will get to decide on their prize first, and the second will receive the other

The requirements are as follows:
  1. You must be a follower, New followers and old followers are welcome.
  2. Leave a comment with your choice of prize, and email address. If you choose the book from book depository, make sure to include the name of the book; I will accept pre-order books, but only if the books will be released before December 31, 2011.

Congrats, Sherre!! And just think, there are probably people stalking your page too, even if they don't comment. :)

I'm an old-er follower & I added you button to my blog.

The B&N card would be great. But if I had to pick a book from TBD, it would for sure be Anna Dressed in Blood.

Congratulations! I hit 100 recently myself so I know it feels really good. Thanks for the giveaway. I hope you're doing something to treat yourself as well as your followers. Well done, girl!

Jennifer Lane said...

Congratulations, Sherre! I have an author blog but also do book reviews and author interviews, so I feel like a stalker on book blogs as well ha ha. Thanks for the giveaway and I'd love to win the B & N gift card.

TG said...

Oops, I forgot to enter the giveaway. If I, by some amazing chance, won, I'd like the Book Depository gift and the book I most want is... The Night Circus. I've got my fingers crossed!

Melissa said...

Ha!! Now you get stalked instead of being the stalker!! Actually I know just how you feel...I've been book blogging for a little over a month now and it's so much fun (so much work too...but that's another story!) I think I'm going to do a 250 follower giveaway...I am hovering under 200 now!

Anyway--

+1 I'm a new follower via Follow Friday and would love to enter the giveaway! I just got a new Nook a few weeks ago and have been eying some accessories (and then telling myself: no, no, no!) so the B&N card would be amazing for me.

+1 Commented on your DarkHouse review

+1 Added your blog button to my side bar under Blog Love:)
