A Contest of My Own...

Oh, okay, so I am being optimistic and thinking that I will get more than one or two entries...but I just passed two milestones on my blog, my 50th post and 1,000 visitor and I want to celebrate! I debated long and hard about what to give away as a prize. I decided on one of my favorite books of all time, The Scarlet Pimpernel. (If you follow the link, you can read the first few pages on Google Books.) It is a beautiful hardcover edition complete with ribbon marker. I know you will love it!

Here is how the contest works...
~Leave a comment on this post, telling me something about yourself. It could be your favorite book, color, music, Bible verse, or something about your children, your husband, your home, anything that will say something about you.
~You must also leave a way for me to contact you; a blog link or email your email address to me so I will know it is you. I would hate to see you miss out just because I couldn't get in contact with you.

The drawing will be held on June 28, 2008. I will draw out a name and send off the prize to the lucky winner!

Thanks for reading!

Congratulations on 50 posts and 1000 visitors!!

No need to include me in the drawing (I don't need to win any more right now!), but you have chosen a wonderful book to give away! Somebody will be delighted! I think it's fun to have a contest.

And, so you know something about me anyway...I was born and raised in Montana; moved away when I was 18. We try to visit once a year.

Great Idea! And congrats on the milestones! I should probably put up a disclaimer for myself...since I am family (thats something about me) and should be disqualified from entering the drawing. But I still wanted to comment! Who will the winner be?

Congratulations on your milestones! I have never read this book but just followed your link and it looks like an excellent book! OK- something about me: I am a mother to two young sons and one of our all-time favorite hobbies is to read. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Congratulations on your accomplishments!!! I miss hearing from you on Geeks but I'm glad you're getting your house in order and having so much fun with your baby.

As you know,I'm the mother of five sons--grown or nearly so. What you don't know is that my fourth son who will be a senior this coming year will turn 17 on the day you draw the winner.

I've never read the Scarlet Pimpernel but I've see the US Acres version--LOL.
