Giveaways to Celebrate a Blogiversary!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday dear Jen's Book Thoughts

Happy Birthday to you!

Yes, it's been exactly one year today since all the fun started! Now, many books and almost 5,000 hits later, here we are! So, let's celebrate. Only with this celebration, we're giving gifts to YOU!

I have a hardcover copy of Chris Grabenstein's Tilt-A-Whirl and a hardcover copy of Michael Stanley's A Carrion Death to give away. Both of these books were in my favorite reads list for 2008, and I'd like to share them with you in celebration of this blogiversary.

Both books are the series debuts. Tilt-A-Whirl is the first book of the John Ceepak series (my review). Book number five, Mind Scrambler, is going to be released this June. A Carrion Death is the first book in the Kubu Bengu series (my review). Book number two, The Second Death of Goodluck Tinubu, will also be released this June (in the U.S.).

So, what do you do if you'd like to win one of these books? Well you get your name put in the drawing, that's how. If you are interested in Tilt-A-Whirl, send me an e-mail here, with "Tilt-A-Whirl" in the subject line. Include your snail mail address in the e-mail (sorry, but only U.S. addresses will be eligible for the drawings). If you are interested in A Carrion Death, use the same e-mail address and put "A Carrion Death" in the subject line. If the e-mail link doesn't work, you can type it in with forbyone (at) yahoo (dot) com. You may enter both contests by sending two e-mails, but you will only be eligible to win one of the books.

If you would like to earn yourself an additional entry, you can post about this giveaway on your own blog and let me know. OR if you don't have a blog, you can send an e-mail to five or more friends telling them about the giveaway (make sure you cc: me on the e-mail).

I will take entries through January 19th and then announce the winners on January 20th.

This is my thanks to you for helping to make my blog such fun for me. I love your e-mails and comments - keep them coming. I look forward to breaking some new ground with you all in year two!

Happy Reading!
