Now I need to figure out a fun way to host a giveaway for these books, I love the idea of Kristin @ Bookworming in the 21st Century‘s month-long comment contest, so I may do something along those lines. I want to host a contest which will lead to more people following (I enjoy the ego boost). I know I will use a googledoc sign up then if you want extra entries, just do that in comments, because I know I do the extra entries after filling out the form. But I would also like to host some sort of unique contest, IE if you made me a fun video on youtube about why you want to win (such as a rap or a slam poem, or a skit LOL). Clearly, one winner will not get all the books. I’m not even really sure how to split the books either, maybe the winners could pick and choose?! Hmmm. If anyone has any awesome serious ideas, please let me know.

In other news: I am currently reading The Superstress Solution by Roberta Lee, MD, and what do you know, nothing beats stress like a good book, no wonder I feel so stressed lately, I haven’t gotten in my reading time, or at least as much time to read as I would wish.

  3. Oooo…I love big piles of beautiful books!

    Definitely more then one winner!

    Can't wait!

  4. I lurrvve all the books you bought. The pile is freaking amazing and you soo got your money's worth!!!

  5. Debbie's World of Books says

    Wow, those are some awesome books! Next month I'm doing a holiday giveaway. I'm going to pick at least 2 winners, let the first one choose a certain number of books and then the second winner gets to choose from the remaining books. I'm making my entries simple to hopefully get the most entries and advertising for my blog and giveaway. I think ones with complicated entries do not get as many entries.

    That said I say do whatever works for you. After all it's your giveaway 🙂

  6. Whoaaaaaaaaaaa.
    That's a nice pile of books right there. They're all amazing! 🙂

  7. You could always just have a huge Xmas blowout – involve a comment contest part as well?
