50+ Follower Giveaway!

Last Friday, I got my 50th follower here at My Book Retreat ~ as well as my 51st, 52nd and 53rd. I'm so excited to have such a great group of readers here! So to say thank you to all of my followers, I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY! As you've probably noticed, I read an eclectic set of books. I try not to read two books in the same genre in a row. I like to mix it up a lot! So in honor of that, I've pulled several books off my shelves, some quite old, and will offer three of these books to three of my followers.

Here's how it works:
1. Leave a comment telling me that you're a follower (be sure to become a follower first if you aren't already). Leave your e-mail address in your comment if it's not easily accessible from your profile page.
2. If you are one of the first 53 followers of My Book Retreat, leave a second comment letting me know so you can have a second entry into the contest!
3. I will choose three winners using on Thursday, April 8th at 10:00pm EDT. I will announce all three winners here, as well as the order in which they were drawn. I will also contact each by e-mail.
4. The first person will get to choose one of the books from the following list. Once the first person has chosen, the second person gets to choose. Once the second person has chosen, the third person gets to choose. Make sense?

Here's the list of books that will be included in this giveaway (I've tried to include links to the specific version I'm offering ~ mass market paperback, paperback or hardcover):
The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
The Beach House by James Patterson and Peter De Jonge
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
Praise of Folly by Desiderius Erasmus (in English of course)
Crazy as Chocolate by Elisabeth Hyde
Babyhood by Paul Reiser
Old Songs in a New Cafe: Selected Essays by Robert James Waller
The Tree-Sitter by Suzanne Matson

Because I believe some of my followers are located outside the US, I'll open this to international entries as well. You just have to be a follower.

    (I was your 53rd follower, so this is my 2nd entry)

  3. Hi just found your blog, this comment is not for participate in the giveaway just to let you know I'm a new follower :) glad I found your blog.

  4. Congrats on making it to 50-I'm still working on getting 20! I've been a follower for a while, so consider this entry number 2!

  5. Great! Please count me in!


  6. How exciting. I'm a follower.

  7. I was an earlier (than 50) follower. This is my second entry.

  8. Here I thought I was a follower and instead I find that I get you in my google feed reader. So I guess I'm a new follower, even though I've been a reader for a while now.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
