Celebrating 300 Followers!!

All I can say to all of you is THANK YOU!!! What a wonderful 6-month anniversary present--my 300th follower!! And what better way to celebrate than to have a little giveaway, no?! I finally figured out what I wanted to do...

I decided to offer two giveaways this time around. One lucky winner will get to choose a book of their choice from The Book Depository, valued at $10 or less.

Book Depository Logo

The Grand Prize winner will receive a $25 e-gift certificate for either Amazon.com or BN.com--it's your choice!

Amazon Gift Certificate

BN Gift Certificate

You know what all this means... this contest is open to everyone, not just the US and Canada! :-) That's right, anyone can enter to win!

Feel free to put all your entries in one comment but I will also accept separate comments (but if you decide to take pity on me, a single comment is really easier for me to work with). So here's how you can enter:

+ 1 entry ~ leave a comment telling me what book you are dying to read right now.

+ 1 entry ~ become a follower on Google Friend Connect and let me know you have (+2 entries if you are already a follower--be sure to let me know that in the comment)

+1 entry ~ become a follower on Twitter (@Melsbookshelf) and let me know you have in the comment!

+1 entry each ~ If you're on Blogged or Book Blips, friend me and let me know that you have in the comment!

+2 entries each ~ Tweet about this contest, blog about this contest, and/or post about this contest on Facebook. Be sure to leave links in your comment!

+3 entries each ~ Digg this post, Stumble it, and/or bookmark it on del.icio.us and let me know that you have.

So you can earn up to 20 or 21 entries total for this contest!

Please note that this contest closes at midnight EDT on August 31st and I will tally the entries and let Random.org pick the winners shortly thereafter!

Good luck to all of you and thanks again for your support!!

  83. Hi Melissa, and congrats on 300 followers! Thanks for this great contest -- it's good for further growing your readership, you're up to 325! :-)

    The next book I'll start is called Daphne by Justine Picardie. It's a novel based on the life of Daphne du Maurier, author of Rebecca, and I got it thru LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program - it looks GREAT!

    I became a follower of your blog. :-)

    I started following you on Twitter. And, I retweeted one of your tweets about the contest:
