BOOKIN' WITH BINGO'S BIRTHDAY!
Today my blog is one month old! I can't believe it!

Thank you to all the bloggers for their help, comments, entries,etc. YOU all have made this a dream come true! I hope you all will keep coming back and tell your friends about my book blog. Currently there are two giveaways running with more to come later this week!

FOR A BIRTHDAY TREAT, I want to give someone a PRESENT! One lucky person will receive a gift! In that my blog is one month old-
  • The first 15 people to comment below AND blog about my last two Giveaways (THE LEISURE SEEKER and THE LITTLE GIANT OF ABERDEEN COUNTY) on theirs or any one's blog (please tell where you do this blogging) will be entered into the "PRESENT" POOL!
  • As soon as there are 15 entries that have followed these directions, I will enter the names and using RANDOM.ORG choose one lucky winner to win a PRESENT
  • The PRESENT is 4, YES, FOUR! advanced copies of some great books (I have actually received duplicates of these so they are new)!
  • The FOUR are THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE by Amy Dickinson, AMERICAN RUST by Philipp Meyer, LAND OF MARVELS by Barry Unsworth, and THE HOUSEKEEPER AND THE PROFESSOR by Yoko Ogawa.
  • Good luck to everyone and hope that this PRESENT will be PRESENTED by this evening before my birthday is through...but we shall see how long it takes to get 20 people!

Thank you, donnas! Perhaps there MIGHT be a goodie bag for you someplace even though you don't have a blog, you were so kind and I hope you come back! We shall see how quickly things go!

You don't need to enter me but I wanted to say Happy Blog Birthday!

Bingo said...

For those of you who are old enough and remember when Sally Field got her Oscar, I kind of feel like that with all these kind words...I think she said something like "Wow, they like me. They really, really like me"!

New layout is awesome! I'm glad you found a way to get rid of that "weird html" that was irking you. It sure is a learning process isn't it? Look how far you have come in a month. Happy Birthday!

Bingo said...

Thanks, Wrighty, but much of the credit goes to a new site that got me "the look" I wanted with ease AND other bloggers helping with things. Check out http://www.thatblogplace.com/ as these gals having it going on! And, I STILL can't do a link to save my life but that will come with time!
By the way,I think we are almost at 15 folks, won't be long now!

drey said...

I just wanted to say happy birthday!

drey said...

I've got both your giveaways listed on my giveaways page at drey's library!

Bingo said...

I can tell there will be no sleep tonight as this is so exciting! Drey officially gives us 12 entrants and so we only need 3 more to draw for the "present" which will of course come wrapped in birthday paper --or Christmas wrap depending on which I have more of :D!

Mom of 5 Boys said...

Ooh, am I lucky #13? I came here from Alyce's blog, and I think I'm going to have to add your blog to my blogs that I follow. Thanks for the opportunity to win some books!

sharon54220 said...

Wow!! I would love to be entered in this contest. I haven't figured out how to add things to my blog yet though. I'm still a newbie. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

sharon54220@gmail.com

Bingo said...

We are really close to 15. Sharon to be an entry you don't have to add something to your blog (altho all you have to do is add a post and tell my website and the two contests for people to check out). OR you can always go to someone else's blog and blog about it in a comment area...just a thought to help you out! I'm hoping we get to 15 tonight!

Hi There! said...

I'd love a chance at this one too ;)

STOP THE PRESSES, I SAID! WHERE IS THAT COMMENT!??? OK, we hit 15 and I am off to enter all this valuable information into the BINGO BOOKIN' BIRTHDAY BLOGGER PRESENT PICKER (Random.org) and will be back in a few with the winner! Good luck to all and thanks for celebrating with my blog and me!

Bingo said...

Congratulations to the lucky winner!
DREY! I will be notifying Drey right now and sending those 4 great ARCs all wrapped up with birthday paper, ribbon, and lots of thanks!

Don't forget I still have THE LITTLE GIANT OF ABERDEEN COUNTY and THE LEISURE SEEKER giveaways going on. Drop by later this evening as I think I have been inspired to write a review of a favorite author of mine (so excited) and post another giveaway. It will be LATEr for you night owls like me!

Tracy(bookroomreviews) said...

Just wanted to say Happy Birthday, I haven't been able to get into Blogspot blogs for a couple days for some reason. Love the new look:)
