One good thing about having another birthday is that I feel it's the one day a year that I don't have to feel guilty about indulging myself a little. I use to always spend a day doing things I like, like going to Powells (bookstore) and trolling the aisles for hours on end, and going to a fancy (ish) restaurant and eating food I like and not food that the rest of my family wants. But since I now have two small children it seems as though even finding a few hours to myself is nearly impossible. So no me day, though if I'm lucky I'll get out of the house for a few hours this morning and perhaps visit the used bookstore and maybe even Borders. Unfortunately I won't be able to trek to Powells as I'll have to be back by early afternoon. However, I will be visiting there soon for a signing (or 3) and should probably try to save my birthday money for that. If I get super lucky maybe my daughter will get invited for a play-date and I'll only have to deal with one whiny child for a few hours in the afternoon and no fighting. No matter what the day ends up being like I know one thing, I got THE PLEDGE (it's for giveaway but I'm reading it first!) and I'm reading it on my birthday! I don't think anything could beat that!
Now I was trying to come up with some unique idea for a giveaway and suddenly I got an idea (in the shower cause that's where my best ideas pop into my head)! I'll giveaway books to three different people. But they will be a surprise. However, I have no desire to give books to people that may already have them or don't read that genre, etc. So I came up with an idea.
I will giveaway 3 books to 3 different people. These books may come off my shelf, or I may buy them new. I can't afford to buy all three books so I'm hoping that everyone has a good wishlist to link me to, or can list AT LEAST 10 books they want. These can be ANY books. I will randomly select the winners using random. org. I will contact the winners to get a mailing address, but I will not tell them what they won so that it can be a surprise.
The Giveaway: ENDED
3 books to 3 winners. These may be books off my shelf (in at least excellent condition) or I may buy them (if your international I'll probably order you one).

Ends July 5th, 2011
