50 Followers Contest

I have only been running this blog for a few months, but it already feels like I have been doing this forever. I love being able to share my thoughts about my favorite books, hang out on Twitter with wonderfully supportive fellow-bloggers, and promote some incredibly talented and kind authors. Thank you to my first 50 blog followers and all of my other awesome readers! I really appreciate all of you sticking by me and helping me do what I do better every day.

In order to celebrate, I’ll be hosting a contest. After all, what better way could there be to thank you than to give you stuff. The winner of this contest will receive a pre-order of their choice (under $20, please). I would highly recommend one of the following: Mockingjay, Matched, Revolution, Where She Went, The Mockingbirds, Paranormalcy, or Anna and the French Kiss. These are just a few of the many books I am looking forward to in the next few months; feel free to suggest others in the comments.

The contest deadline is August 15th at 11:59 PM. The rules are as follows:

  • You must be a follower to enter. This is a contest to thank my followers, so please make sure that you follow this blog before completing the form.
  • This is now my 50 followers contest and my 100 followers contest, so two winners will be declared. If I reach over 100 followers, I will add a second winner. I’ll strongly consider a third winner if I make it to 150 followers.
  • You may only enter this contest once. If I find out that you have submitted multiple entries, you will be disqualified.
  • You must have a valid blog or website URL to enter. (This may be a Twitter or Facebook page if you don’t have any other kind of site.)
  • This contest is international as long as I can ship through The Book Depository or you are willing to cover shipping costs if located outside the U.S.
  • You must be 13 years or older to enter unless you have your parents’ permission to share your address if you win.
  • This contest does not allow for any extra entries because I prefer simple, easy contests. I will still be extremely grateful if you share the contest info through tweets, blog posts, or sidebar links. Please share because you are awesome, not because you feel like it is required.

Alright, enough of the formalities. Enter away and make sure to check back on August 16th:


Total Entry Count: 94

  • I followed with GFC and with Twitter– I didn’t see a button to do otherwise?

  • Just need the GFC follow, so you’re all set. Thanks!
    (Twitter follows are always appreciated, but not necessary for the contest.)

  • I think Beautiful Darkness is going to be exciting!

  • I’m looking forward to Beautiful Darkness, too! Forgot that on the list because I already moved it from my pre-order wish list to my arc tour list. That’s what I get for trying to stay organized.

    Thanks to all who have entered so far. I’m loving all of your comments in the entry form.

  • Thank you all for your support! People have been picking some great books! My personal TBR pile is definitely going to grow from seeing some titles I was unfamiliar with before this contest.

  • OK this is a great giveaway, and I really want to enter… one problem… I’m being blind and can’t find the GFC button! I’m a follower via Blogger but can’t find your button to follow you via GFC, help me…. πŸ™

  • Congratulations on your 50 followers and almost 100!!!

  • Ruth, the GFC button is in the right sidebar between the quotable quote and tag cloud πŸ™‚

    15 Melanie said this (July 24, 2010 at 6:07 AM)

  • Oh, really? That sucks, cos all that I see there is an empty white box. I think there might be a problem with the page in some way cos my computer keeps reloading it all the time… like, it’ll load and then immediately reload over and over again until I hit “stop”. Either that, or there’s some problem with my computer *glum* I can see other people’s GFC buttons, though. Weird.

    Oh well, thanks anyway!

    16 Ruth (Book Focus) said this (July 25, 2010 at 1:24 AM)

  • OK, I take it all back, ignore me. The GFC button magically appeared when I reloaded the page, and then I found out I was already a follower anyway πŸ˜€ Not having a smart day apparently! The page still keeps reloading itself though, which is still weird.

    Anyway. Thanks for the contest! πŸ˜€ Off to enter it now… finally…. πŸ™‚

  • Sorry, I accidently entered twice I think. Just delete my other entry. πŸ™‚

  • No worries! If you accidentally submit an extra entry and let me know, I can just delete it and you won’t be disqualified. I am more concerned with people who are fraudulently submitting extra entries, which is what happened in my previous contests. I know that the majority of people are being honest, and I don’t want the others to ruin those honest peoples’ chances of winning.

  • Ekta, just wanted to make sure you know that the link you provided is fine! I am only being somewhat strict about the rules because I’ve had to deal with some contest fraud in the past and want to make sure that this contest is as fair for everyone as it can possibly be. Thank you for entering!
