My Blogiversary and Birthday

April is the month for my birthday and, also, the month that I started my blog.  Very soon, I will have been blogging for one year.  I have met some wonderful bloggers, readers, and authors during that time and hope to continue to meet great people from the book blogging community.  I had hoped to do an extravaganza, but finances and health issues put a kink in my plans.  However, I do have a special giveaway for my great followers.  The winner will received up to $20 worth of books from the Book Depository.  If the Book Depository ships in your area, you may enter.  So my international followers are welcome to enter. 
You must be a follower.

Leave me a comment with your total and e-mail.
Giveaway goes until April 12 at midnight.  I will e-mail the winner, and they will have 48 hrs. to get back with me.  Once they pick their books, I will order them from the Book Depository and have them shipped to them.
Thanks to everyone for a great first year!
