My End of the Year/First Contest!

This Contest is CLOSED!!!


So this is my first ever contest and it coincides with the end of the year perfectly. Later tonight, and for the following six days I will post one book with its review. Those seven books will be my favorites from 2009 and that is what the winner will be choosing from, one of those. If I get more followers the prizes will get better. Here is what could potentially be up for grabs:


75 Followers- The winner of the contest will get to choose two books from the 7 on the list.


100 Followers- The first place winner will get to choose two books and a second place winner will get to choose one book from the list. It will be first come first serve as far as picking out of the 7 books goes.


125 Followers- Same as the 100 followers, but a third place winner will win a random book off my bookshelf, I will tell them the book ahead of time and if they don't like it can choose to receive a bag of swag instead.

If the time comes where I need to up the prizes, I will!

My absolute favorite was actually a picture book, Bubble Trouble by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Polly Dunbar.
