150 Followers Contest

Wow, while I was sleeping I reached 150 followers. Welcome to all the new people who decided to follow The Bookette. Please don't be afraid to comment. I love comments!

So to celebrate this bloggy milestone, I have two ARCs of Ondine: The Summer of Shambles by Ebony McKenna to give away.

Here is the summary from Amazon:
This is a brilliantly witty fairy tale with a mystery that is as surreal as it is sinister. One girl. One boy. One spell to be broken. Ondine de Groot is a normal fifteen-year-old who lives with her family in the European country of Brugel. She has a pet ferret called Shambles. But Shambles is no ordinary ferret...He's Hamish McPhee, a boy cursed by a witch. A witch who happens to be related to Ondine. When Shambles turns back into Hamish temporarily, Ondine knows that she has to help him break the spell. He is the most gorgeous boy she has ever met and her one true love! He just can't remain a ferret forever. Can he?

Me again:
This book is such a hilarious read. My review is here.

I haven't yet managed to force myself to write my Contest Policy. Hopefully I'll do that by the end of the week. I've decided to go over to Google Docs to protect your email addresses. So please fill out the form below.

This contest is open internationally. Closing date: 23rd January 2010, Midnight GMT.

Congratulations..that's a lot of followers. I've entered the contest, that book sounds great (and I'm not usually a fantasy person)

Congratulations on all those follower! Your blog is awesome:)

Sammee, I love your blog too!

Alessandra said...

Super-congratulations, and thanks for the giveaway :) The book sounds good.

BTW, it might be just my problem, but I can't scroll your embedded form from left to right. The first line seems to be broken, I can only read it as fa as "Please rememb" and then the second line starts with "enter. Good luck!" I've tried it first with Firefox, then with Internet Explorer (but it was worse). Anyway, considering that extra entries are 1+1+5=7, and that the maximum number of entries you can have is 9, I hope I'm making things right by putting 2 in that blank, since I'm not doin any extra entry. If this is wrong, sorry, but after a long day at work my brain usually turns into jelly and I can't make the simplest calculations :(

*accomplishment :] Oh and haha i put 9 as totaled entries because you said that was the max, and i did the max, but there is only a total of 7! :P

Lauren said...

Yunaleska said...

Sounds like a great read!

Nina said...

Congratulations, you totally deserve this! :)

Becky said...

More lovely comments. You guys are fab! I on the other hand am a complete mathematical failure. I totally messed this up. My excuse? First time I tried using google docs and it was confusing! I'll just give everyone an extra entry. It should have been a maximum of 8.
1 for obviously entering in the first place
1 if you tweeted
1 if you linked the contest somewhere
5 if you did a blog post

Now, I think 1+1+1+5 = 8

So I will just give all entrants one extra to make it fair.

Thanks to everyone who noted that I can't add up. Seriously, thanks otherwise this contest would have been the most unfair one in the blogosphere.
Love you observant people!

Hi,
I saw that you tweeted to advertise The Body Finder swag giveaway but for some strange reason, you haven't come up on my spreadsheet. If you can remember how many extra entries you had you can email me at the-sweet-bonjour@hotmail.com and I'll add you :)
