Blogiversary Celebration and Giveaway!

It's hard to believe I've been blogging about books for two years now! Yes, today is my 2-year Blogiversary. It's amazing how much this blog has grown in the past two years. I now have more than 450 followers, which seems unbelievable to me. THANK YOU for reading and visiting and commenting. I truly appreciate it!

So, to say a proper thank you to all of you who are following My Book Retreat, I'm offering a giveaway of what I consider my favorite book of 2011 so far:

Here's the synopsis I wrote in my review back in August:
Five years ago, politician Merete Lynggaard disappeared and was presumed dead. But she is very much alive, being held captive by an unknown person who obviously wants her to suffer. Carl Mørck is a detective who is trying to recover from an incident that left one colleague dead and another paralyzed. To get him out of the way, he is made head of the new Department Q, charged with reviewing old unsolved case files that involve persons of interest. The first file he picks up is the disappearance of Merete Lynggaard.
And you can read my complete review here: The Keeper of Lost Causes Review.

This giveaway is open to ALL CURRENT FOLLOWERS of My Book Retreat who are 18 years of age and older. In an effort to thank those who have supported me over the past two years, I am NOT including new followers (anyone who starts following after this post is published). NOTE: I do welcome new followers and plan to have more giveaways in the coming weeks, you just can't enter this giveaway.

TO ENTER, fill out the following form. The giveaway ends at 10:00pm EDT on October 23, 2011. The winner will be chosen using, and notified by email.
