This week I went to some local clothing stores feeling more than usually plump due to having eaten the entire province of British Columbia and most of the US Pacific Northwest. But I feel, the need for something new to wear to my mega-fiftieth-birthday (all gluten free) party. In thinking about it I wish I had just had some close friends over. But, a few years ago I threw a super mega for my husband. I am waiting for whatever humiliation he will come up with to heap on me. I used his 5th grade autobiography so I know, payback is gonna be a bee-yotch.
But I have a goal of having five hundred followers of this blog by the time I turn fifty (Ouch that word hurts!). To help me get there, I am having a contest that will end on November 8, unless I don't have 500 by then. If I do not have the five hundred GFC followers by then I will continue until I do. If I have five hundred by my actual evil birthday (Nov. 3) I will add my pre-read copy of Eat, Prey, Love to the prizes. If by some miraculous intervention I were to get to five hundred fifty by the November 8 deadline I will add a second prize spot (US or Canada only) with a prize to be determined later. There will also be an international prize component regardless of contest ending quantity which will end at the same time as the domestic contest and which is open to any eligible person living in a country to which Book Depository ships for free to qualify. See if it does here: (http://www.bookdepository.com/help/topic/HelpId/26/Free-delivery-worldwide-as-standard#helpContent). The international prize will be books up to $20 from Book Depository. It can be any combo of books costing no more than $20.00 US qualifying for free shipping to your country. Whew
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A FOLLOWER TO ENTER OR WIN. IT IS KIND OF THE IDEA BEHIND THE CONTEST THAT I GET FOLLOWERS AND WHILE I WOULD BE REALLY HAPPY IF YOU DID FOLLOW I AM NOT SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO COERCE YOU INTO IT!
Enter once for the good old, regular entry. THEN:
I will give one bonus entry up to three for tweets spaced at least a day apart. PLEASE FILL OUT A SEPARATE FORM FOR EACH EXTRA ENTRY WITH LINK (No link no bonus entry). TWEETS please use the following copy:
