300 Followers Giveaway!

When Cheryl and I first started the blog, I thought if we got 50 people we'd be doing good.  But now we have over 300 stalkers followers?!  That is insanely AWESOME! Even Dean agrees with me!

To celebrate we're having a little giveaway to thank you guys!  I was debating on what book should be the prize then I thought, ya know what? Let the winner choose!  Here are all the details:

- You MUST already be a follower to enter this giveaway. Anyone who started following after 11/16/09 cannot enter. And yes, I will be checking.

- There will only be ONE winner.

- Please list up to 5 books - each being under $15 - that you would like to own. If you are chosen, I will pick one book out of your list to send to you. Depending on the price range, you might even get two. Basically it's a SURPRISE!!

- Here's the catch. I will be purchasing the winner's book(s) from The Book Depository. Please check out the site first before listing your books.

- The giveaway will end November 30th at 12:00pm central time. Giveaway is over - thanks to all who entered!  Due to the recent privacy issues, please do not leave your email address here. The winner will be announced on December 1st here on the blog and will have 48 hours to contact me with their mailing address. If I'm not contacted by then I will choose a new winner.
