It's My Blogoversary!!!
It almost slipped by me, but today Between the Pages turns 3!! I can't believe it's been three years already! And I'm still thankful every day that I'm part of this amazing community of booklovers and even though I haven't met you guys in real life, I do feel that I've made some true friends over the years and I just want to thank you all for being your awesome selves!
So I've been feeling nostalgic and looking back at this post I did for my first blogoversary two years ago. And I laughed when I saw how under '5 random facts about me' I mentioned my TBR list as being huge. Then it had 824 books on it (which has exploded to 1530 at the moment), 95 of which I owned (I can now boast of owning 392). I'm such a little book hoarder. See what you all do to me by being awesome and recommending me books??
It's been a year in which lots of things have happened for me: I had my first job as a real doctor (and got to actually sign recipes, yay!), bought my first car, the boyfriend graduated and got HIS first real grownup job, I got accepted into the residency I wanted and I've also seen the end of my first real doctor job. I've met so many people and said goodbye to some of them last week. Doing my job I've had both amazingly happy moments and really difficult, sad, angry moments and though I try not to take my work home with me, I can't help it sometimes.
So before I go all teary-eyed on all of you, let's switch over to the giveaway part of this blogoversary, cause OF COURSE I want to thank you guys with something other than just MY words: I want to give you all words written by authors much more eloquent than I am.
I'm giving away your choice of any of the books I've rated either 5 stars or 5+ stars here on the blog, because I want to share with you the books I've loved and I hope you'll hold as dear to your heart as I do! If it's part of a series you can choose an earlier/later book in the series instead. Pre-orders are fine as well.
Pictured above are some of the books, but as I said, you can take your pick of any of my favourites!
-Open internationally to wherever The Book Depository ships!
-If under 13 you have to have approval from a parent/legal guardian
-Open from July 5th to July 19th 2013
-The winner will be contacted through e-mail as well as announced on the blog
-The winner will have 48 hours to get back to me with the book of their choice, if there's no response after 48 hours I will pick another winner
