Birthday Countdown - Giveaway 4

For the scoop on why I'm going all of these giveaways, click here.

I'm doing a week of giveaways just for y'all! Each day will be a different item. I'm giving away some of my favorite things. You can enter each giveaway as many times as you want. Yep, that's right. But, you have to leave a meaningful comment. Not just "pick me, pick me!" Compliments will score you brownie points. Telling me about your favorite birthday memory is a good one. What you like to give/get for birthdays are also good. Anything that you want to tell me.

All giveaways are sponsored by yours truly. All of these birthday giveaways will end at midnight on August 19th (my actual birthday) and winners will be emailed and announced here on the 20th. Good luck and make sure you check back daily for the newest giveaway announcement.

Giveaway Day 4

I love to read and I'm so glad that it's a hobby that I'm going out of my way to focus more time & energy on. Today's giveaway is a $10 giftcard to one of my favorite bookstore, Barnes & Noble! Now, leave me your comments. Maybe some book recommendations? Your favorite authors? Mine is Jen Lancaster. She's HILARIOUS!

I love to read too! My favorite book is Crime and Punishment. It is a great book.
Thanks a lot!

Diana said...

After your Books A Million story I am a true Barnes and Noble lover! I use to enjoy reading in a past life, but honestly I spend 90% of my Barnes and Noble dough on kid books. I LOVE LOVE LOVE buying new children books. I think I love them even more than Emma (and Ellie). I have raised readers b/c Ellie asks for books by name already! And not to brag but Emma was doing the sign language for book at 10 months old.

Tonya said...

I love this one! My favorite author is James Patterson! And I recommend all of them. :)

Brandy said...

I'm making my way through the True Blood series...slowly. Apparently they are very popular right now and so I have them on hold at the library.

Jen said...

Here are a few of my faves:

-The Lovely Bones
-Memoirs of a Geisha
-Water for Elephants
-Twilight and The Host

Angela said...

Awesome! Even with my Kindle obsession, there are still lots of things you can't (yet) get on Kindle, so I am still a huge fan of B&N! And I'm STILL begging you to read the Stephanie Plum books. BEFORE you read ANYTHING else, LOL!!!

(okay, so Jane and I both are begging!)

Mary said...

I could use this gift card...I homeschool my sons and they sell some nice Kumon workbooks at Barnes & Noble.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Oh how I love to read. Thank you so much for this fantastic giveaway. if only books were much cheaper.

lauren51990 at aol dot com

Shooting Stars Mag said...

One of my favorite books of all time is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I read it once a year for a few years there but I need to go back and read it soon. It's kind of a teen/coming of age story but I believe each time you read it, you find something new to relate too or enjoy...or at least I do.

lauren51990 at aol dot com

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Now, when it comes to adult books...I love paranormal romance a ton. You should try out Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs if you like that sort of genre. It's a vampire book but so very funny!!!

Sandi (Meme) said...

What a fun idea for a give away. You are so inventive. I had a giveaway last month, and the name of the person I drew never did respond to my contacts, so I am going to redraw this week. So sad when you try to join in the fun and kinda fall on your face! Have a great week! I enjoy following your blog, you are so down to earth, and just down right FUN!

Jane In The Jungle said...

If you have not, you've got to read the Stephanie Plum series by
Janet Evanovich...HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chelle said...

I love Jen Lancaster! She. is. hilarious!

I also love Mary Kay Andrews...great summer reads from her. Oh, and Jennifer Weiner is amazing as well!

leoandchelle(at)yahoo(dot)com

Michelle said...

Jen Lancaster is great -- have you read any of Lani Diane Rich's books? The Ex and the City (no S, really) was a great one. I just checked out her other two from the library. I was soooo entertained by the first one I picked up!

Bebemiqui said...

My current favorite reads are anything by Terry Pratchett!
bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

mommy4life said...

I love to read. Jane Eyre is my favorite. But I read cereal boxes, too!

MommyBrain said...

Books are the best! I know this sounds ridiculous, but I haven't really read anything since finishing the Twilight series because every book I pick up doesn't leaves me yearning for Edward ... oh, that really is pathetic ... but true, nonetheless. I think I need to spend sometime in the book store restoring my love for a good book!

I love to read. My fave author is Noah Gordon

Suz said...

I love Jen too. Always a good read

You are the most brilliant, beautiful, bustin'butt blogger I know. I'm so honored to wish you a happy birthday.

How was that?

I love to read, too. Can't stand to be without a book. Ever. I love a broad spectrum of authors, mainly fiction. Janet Evanovich, Francine Rivers, Stephen King and Dean Koontz are a few of my favorites.

Heather said...

Oh, and pick me, pick me.

(Sorry I couldn't resist :)

Shannon said...

You don't even want to know what's in my wishlist on Amazon...

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

What a SWEET idea! Hope your birthday is fabulous! And your blog doesn't look a day over 22. Swear to God.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Was that complimentary enough?

;)

Due to money being GONE this year, I am hoping to use any winnings I get from blog entries for Christmas presents. So, this gift card would probably end up buying my niece a new chapter book or my son "half" of the new Gregor the Overlander book.

Have you read that series?? AWE.SOME.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

So. You said as many entries, right? I am awake. It is 11:36 pm and with a husband who works nights, I could write comments for hours. The REAL question, though, is how much am I willing to write for $10?

Apparently? A lot.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Oh, and another compliment: your blog is adorable. And your eyes are beautiful. Even though it may SEEM like I can't see your eyes through a computer screen, I TOTALLY can. I have mad skillz like that.

Mystica said...

I love to read - Jodi Picault, Sophie Kinsella, Jonathan kellermann. anything and everything.

I just finished reading an AMAZING book called Acedia and Me by Kathleen Norris... such a great book for anybody in a place of spiritual weariness.

Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom said...

I haven't read Jen Lancaster but I'll have to check her out... I'm still trying to get through the Twilight series but the library is so back ordered that it makes it hard lol. I'll get that dang third book one of these days!!

dbaxdevilsfan said...

If you like suspense/mystery, I recommend James Patterson (the Alex Cross series), and Patricia Cornwell. Both are fabulous writers.

Happy birthday!

Sonya said...

I like Francine Rivers. Thanks

NL6369 said...

For good, light,laugh out loud reads, my favorite is the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER said...

Catherine said...

Happy (early) Birthday! I'm in a book club and spend lots of time at Barnes so this is the perfect giveaway for me :) This month's book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, which I've heard great things about so can't wait to get it!
Hard to pick a favorite author, but I'd say Jane Austen- Emma, Pride and Prejudice are great reads...and great bday gifts! :)

Martha said...

Love Luanne Rice, James Patterson, and the Sisterchick books.mavans@scottsboro.org

Mamushi Love said...

I recently claimed Lisa See as my favorite author. I have never been a big reader since I prefer "pretty pictures" via manga/comic books. However, I read See's book Peony in Love on a whim, and I absolutely fell in love with her writing. To me, her writing is like watching a painter create beautiful scenes.

SheilaBee said...

Happy almost birthday! I have so many favorites. Jackie Collins-Nora Roberts-James Patterson-Dorothea Benton Frank-Tammi Hoag- Sandra Brown.

Anonymous said...

I love Barnes and Nobel. It's my favorite bookstore. The last book I read was called The Unit. It was a science fiction book. I enjoyed it, but it wouldn't be everyone cup of tea.

I just finished The Time Traveler's Wife and loved it. I thought it would be good to read the book before seeing the movie b/c all my friends who are literary types had already read the book and were looking forward to seeing the movie. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it.

I hope Lady Luck allows me to win!

Kat said...

How is it that I did not comment on this post??

Wrong. I am reading this really good suspense series right now. The first one is Fade to Black by Leslie Parrish. And I just started the sequel.

Kat said...

My amazon cart has over $300 worth of stuff in it. Even a small dent to move it over to B&N would be helpful.

Kat said...

Have you read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series? Have you read Harry Potter yet?? This series kinda sorta reminds me of it. I just finished the fifth in that series...so now I am all caught up. The movie to that is coming out in the winter and looks soooo good!

Kat said...

Oh, and I just told you on the other post that we saw "Julie and Julia" over the weekend. I am actually on the list to get some Julia Child books from the library. Not that I will master the art of French cooking...but I want to see if any of it is not horribly difficult...

Anonymous said...

Stephen King is my fave but I also like robert McCammon, Clive Barker, John Jakes, Larry McMurtry. I highly recommend any and all of the Sweet Potato Queen books by Jill Connor Browne.

cookiert said...

I love to read! I agree, Jen Lancaster is hilarious. I also enjoy Jennifer Weiner and Jane Green. Oh, and the demon hunting soccer mom series by Julie Kenner is great. Right now, departing from chick lit, I'm reading Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. I'm about 100 pages in and so far it is a horribly depressing story, but very well written.

heaventrees said...

I like many different genres so it is VERY easy for me to shop at Barnes & Noble. No, wait, it's not, because I can never decide what to get with the available funds. I love biographies and true crime, craft books are a favorite too.

My favorite all time book is "Angela's Ashes" by the late Frank McCourt. My Mom led a similar life to his, and from her tales of her childhood, I could totally relate to the book.

I generally only get a chance to read about 2 books a year. I recently finished "Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bon's" which was a good read. It is about a bunch of neighbor ladies who start a book club and become friends for life.

Pat Conroy is one of my all time favorites, but one of my new favs is Jodi Picoult - she wrote My Sister's Keeper.

Just finished Brain Surgeon by Dr. Keith Black. Sounds boring but was a quick read and one of the best books I've ever read.

Barnes & Noble=lifesaver for me! My colicky baby would only quiet down during car rides, so back and forth to B&N we would go...with a quick stop to browse the store and get some java to keep mama sane!

I'm an English teacher, so this would be so great for me...I practically live there! We just read Water for Elephants with my book club, and it was loved by all and I highly recommend it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Books are an excellent birthday gift. DD was looking at a dessert cookbook with her birthday money the other day, but opted for something else. I'd love to surprise her with it.

I really don't care to get gift cards on my Birthday. It is so impersonal and really takes no thought or effort.

Would use gift card to get new 39 Clues for my son -- he loves the series
