My Favourite Things Blogoversary Giveaway!

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

December 17th marks my very first blogoversary! I posted my first (completely pathetic) review that day because I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and I can't believe it's almost been a year now! It's been a fun ride this past year, and I've enjoyed every second of it, and I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to meet some amazing bloggers and book lovers around the blogosphere. We're a great bunch, eh? Anyway, I figured I'd do something to thank all of you for being so amazing and for sticking through the year with me - helping me to get my little site where it is today.

So, without further ado, I'm announcing My Favourite Things Blogoversary Giveaway! Harpo has her favourite things every year and gives away cars and humpback whales, but I think it's time to give away some of MY favourite things. Ready for the prize? One (1) lucky winner will win the following:

A hardcover copy of Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
A soft cover copy of Breathless by Jessica Warman
An adoption of a Polar Bear through Oceana (worth $35)
Some sweet swag (it's a surprise!)

In case you're not sensing the theme...it's water...and swimming...and oceans. My goal this year is to launch a section of my site dedicated entirely to ocean conservation and animal rescues. So, here's the rules for the giveaway:

You MUST be a follower to enter. This giveaway closes promptly at midnight (EST) on December 17, 2010, and this is international, kiddos, so enter away, and good luck! The winner will be chosen randomly by random.org (go figure).
