Oh by the way, it was my blogiversary


Three days ago, this blog turned three! I didn't forget, I was just lazy. But I like traditions, and blogiversary means giveaway. I can't skip that. Now, since I'm even poorer than last year, I'm going to give away only one book. But the good part (for me) is that I get to browse around all the fabulous charity shops and pick a book for the lucky winner. You know the feeling you have when you look at second-hand books you really love and are really cheap? You're really tempted to buy them again and bring them home, but usually there is no point. You already have that book and you also already read it. I keep seeing books I love all over the place, because I'm more than even browsing charity shops few times a week. And it's OK when there's someone with me whom I can recommend the book to. But when I'm alone I feel very guilty to just buy it for future gifts. So now you have a chance to make me feel less guilty! See, I'm not generous at all, it's all for my selfish pleasure :D
All you have to do to get the book is comment below. If you don't have a wish list, start making one! Also, if you don't have an online catalog, get one! Otherwise, you'll just have to go with whatever you get and risk to get a book you already read/have.
Deadline is June 22. I know, it's ages from now, but I'm going on holiday next Monday, and it's not even a week from now, so I thought I'd give more time to spread the word, until I come back. Good Luck!

Happy blogoversary, Val! Um, don't enter me in the contest, though. I brought home so many books from BEA that I'm already overwhelmed. There's nothing I'm particularly hankering after at the moment. :)

Happy anniversary. I really think we should all start actually making fancy blogiversary cakes like that one.

Hi and happy 3rd! It's great to 'meet' you via your earlier comment and I'm very happy to have found your blog. I love finding books at charity shops and I know all about buying those second copies to give away! Giving a book is a gift in itself.
