50th Follower GIVEAWAY!

In honor of this blog achieving over 50 followers, I'm officially hosting a giveaway! This giveaway is long over due, but it shall do. ^.^ It was so hard to decide on what I should giveaway as a gift that everyone could be eligible for. It's harder than you think! Anyways...I wanted to give thanks to all my beloved followers. Without you...this blog would have withered away. *hugs everyone*

Well, I'm giving away two gifts to the winner. One is a permanent sleeve from Tim Horton's. You just slip in on any hot beverage and it'll protect your hand from burning like a piece of bacon. It's very handy when you're holding your boiling hot coffee in the hallway and a co-worker is talking your head off whilst your hand is burning.

The second gift is an option gift. The winner can pick which ever book he/she wants. The options:

The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig

The Constant Princess by Phillipa Gregory

or The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig


  1. Must be or become a follower to this blog
  2. Open to anyone who can receive mail ^.^
  3. Must respond in 48 hours by the time I send you an email, if you don't respond I'll pick another winner
  4. The last day to enter is April 9th (one month time)
  5. The winner will be picked randomly
  6. Just leave a comment with your name and your email
Simple enough? I'll email the winner sometime April 10th. Good luck everyone!!

Ooh, those look like some great books, and I haven't read ANY of them, but I enjoy Margaret George and Philippa Gregory, so they are right up my alley. :) Thanks for hosting a giveaway, it's fun to have a chance to win new reading material.

April, I really like Margaret George and I like Philippa Gregory sometimes. I'm just not a fan of her view of Queen Anne. lol

B, thanks! I'm pretty shocked. hahaha.

AsianCocoa, thanks!

Thanks everyone for joining in on this giveaway. :)

Congrats on reaching 50!! I'm so happy for you!!
Count me in!!
P.S. Is Phillipa's portrayal of Anne bad in Constant Princess? I love Anne, I understand why KofA would be upset. And I would have wanted to kill Anne if I was her, but I LOVE Anne!

Carole Rae said...

Allison, thanks!!!! Well...Anne doesn't appear much in the book. She has a little cameo and that is it. I can see why KofA isn't a fan of Anne; i mean, heck, I would hate her too.

Krista said...
