... Wha WHAT?!
My blog has had over 10,000 hits?! Is you crazy?
Wow. That is totally awesome. And it makes me feel like celebrating! So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna give YOU a chance to win a free book. All you have to do is comment on this post during the next three days (that is, before midnight on Saturday) and you will have a chance to win one of my favorite books from 2008. On Sunday I will draw two names at random, each of which may choose which book they would like. This is my way of giving back to the awesome people who read my blog AND to the awesome authors who write books that I enjoy.
Apologies, but the drawing's only open to those in the US and Canada (shipping costs, don'tcha know).
AND THERE'S MORE! You don't need to have a blog to enter this giveaway, but if you do have a blog and you post about this giveaway, I'll enter your name twice. Just put a link to your post in your comment.
Here's the list of books you may choose from (these are books published in 2008 that have gotten 5 stars from me):
The Underneath by Kathi Appelt
George Washington Carver by Tanya Bolden
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon and Dean Hale, illustrated by Nathan Hale
Greetings from Nowhere by Barbara O'Connor
Nate the Great Collected Stories (audio!) by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat, read by John Lavelle.
Good Enough by Paula Yoo
So, thank you, thank you for reading my blog. It's turned out to be way more fun than I ever imagined it would be and I hope to continue for a long, long time.
Now, commence with the comments! Remember, you must comment before midnight (Central Daylight Time) on Saturday to be eligible for the drawing!
ETA (Sept. 7) - The contest is now closed. Thanks for entering, everyone!!
