Really Random Tuesday #82: Blogiversary Giveaway!


Over the past month, my reading time has been shrinking.  I haven't posted a book review (or any other type of post) for two weeks.  It's not due to too many games of Words with Friends (although I do continue to enjoy playing that game on my phone), it's mostly because of the many events that mark the end of the school year.  I don't want to fall too far behind with my reviews, though, so I plan on "hitting the books" and posting new reviews soon.

******************

Six-year Blogiversary!<br>

This month marks my six-year blogiversary!  It's hard to believe that I started this blog six years ago, in May of 2008.  I've enjoyed many things about book blogging, and am thankful for my all of my readers, who live in many countries around the world. 



In appreciation of my readers, I'm giving away a $25 gift card to Amazon.  This giveaway is open internationally.

  • To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment.
  • For another chance at winning, become a follower of this blog, or let me know that you're already a follower.
  • For an additional chance, post about this contest on your blog, Facebook, Pinterest, or Twitter.
  • For an additional entry, mention what books (or other goodies) you'd get with the gift card.

Enter by 5 PM PDT on Monday, June 9.  One winner will be selected randomly and announced on Tuesday, June 10.  Good luck, and thanks for visiting my blog!

    I would buy the remaining books from Nancy Pearl's Book Lust Rediscoveries series which I don't have yet. I've read most of them and would like to catch up with her suggestions!

  14. I'm really pleased that it was nothing serious that kept you away.

    Happy Blogoversary. Here's to six wonderful years with many more yet to come.

    A follower of your blog, I've shared the post on FB. As for what goodies I'd buy should I be lucky enough to win. Well, it may surprise you but I have a rather large wish list of books to pick from but I think I'd get the last book in the True Blood/Sookie Stackhouse series as I haven't got this yet. Then again, I also have my eye on a friendship candle holder. Anyway, enjoy your day, I look forward to reading those reviews.

  21. Happy Six Years! I'm so glad to have found your blog. I'd combine the gift card with those I hope to get for my birthday next week to buy a new Kindle -- mine is stuffed, and starting to act up. Barring that, I'd at least by Sarah Dunant's Blood and Beauty; The Borgias.

  26. Happy Blogiversary! We've all been around a long time. It's nice. For some reason I've been reading and listening to quite a few books lately. The only problem with that is I need to catch up on reviews before I forget the books. Lol.

  43. I'm catching up with everything. Yay! Sorry for the delayed response. Hmmmm . . . what would I do with $25? My husband's birthday is coming up so I probably would buy him a birthday gift. Doesn't sound like nearly as much fun as my thinking of the one perfect book, I suppose, but I love giving things to people I love.

  44. Oh my goodness Suko, congrats on six years! It goes fast, doesn't it? I love reading your blog and your thoughtful reviews of the books you read. In other news, I'm struggling to find the time to sit and write reviews as well. Or maybe I should say that I'm struggling with the motivation to actually write the reviews. Haha! I need to just do what you are doing and sit down and knock them out. Congrats again!

  53. Congratulations on six years! I know, I'm a little late with the good wishes. The last few weeks were hectic ones for me and while I was still reading, reviews and visiting the blogs suffered a bit. My garden is looking better though!
