So, I'm a greedy individual. I see all the loverly followers on some of my fellow book blogger's websites, and I think to myself, I want that! I want followers. Lots and lots of followers. (See? I am greedy like that!)
So, here's the deal. You follow me, I give you a chance to win a signed copy of Brunonia Barry's The Lace Reader. (See? I'm generous, too!) If you post this on your blog, another entry! If you tweet it, another entry! If you recommend my blog to someone, and they follow me and leave a post saying you recommended the blog, another entry! And if you are already one of my loyal followers, you're automatically entered into the contest once. All I need from you is to leave a comment saying you've followed, blogged or tweeted, and I'll throw your name in the hat the appropriate number of times. I'm not going to go checking on all of these, so we're just going on the honor system here, kids.
If I start to get lots and lots of followers, I'll probably throw something else in to sweeten the deal; let's say, a $10 B&N gift card if I hit 50 followers or a $20 B&N gift card if I hit 100 followers, to be given out to a 2nd winner. So, you could potentially win both! Help me out here, kids! I want followers!! I'm going to leave this open for... a month? Does that sound good? Yeah, the contest will be open until October 15, 2010. Good luck!
And now the small print: I'll ship the book internationally, but I don't know if the B&N gift cards will work internationally or not, so the gift cards will only be available to US winners.
April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
