50/50 Competition

Miss Eliza @ Strange and Random Happenstance is celebrating her 50th post PLUS reaching her 50th Follower! Congratulations Miss Eliza! :)

Here's what she had to say about her competition:

So this here post, the one you are reading right now, at least I hope you are reading it, is officially my 50th post. To commemorate this wondrous feat (at least to me), I am announcing my first ever competition! I've been storing up book swag and loot for awhile now and have been waiting for a suitably grand occasion. Right now you are probably thinking, whatever the occasion, just get to the prizes, and I'm getting prizes you asked? You probably guessed it by the lovely picture above, but the prize is a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble! You know you want it! All those books you could get....Now onto "THE RULES."

The Rules:

1. Open to EVERYONE, just because you haven't been following me all along doesn't mean you don't matter.
2. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if your name is drawn, either your blogger profile or a link to your website/blog or you could even include your email address with your comment(s).
3. Contest ends Monday, August 31st at 11:59PM CST
4. How to enter:

Answer me this: In honor of the end of summer and the beginning of another school year...What is your favorite Summer Read? Doesn't have to have been read this summer, but what book evokes the true spirit of summer to you? Harry Potter perhaps? Charlotte's Web
by chance? A thriller verses a classic? A true beach read? I want to know!

5. And for those addicted to getting extra entries:
  • +1 for answering the question above
  • +2 for becoming a follower
  • +5 if you are already a follower (yes you lucky 5 people you!)
  • +10 for each time you advertise this contest - blog post, sidebar, twitter (please @MzLizard), etc. Also please leave a link!

Also, as extra special incentive...if, by some great stroke of luck I hit 50 followers, which really is beyond my wildest dreams, I will include something extra. I little bookaholic surprise if you will....Good luck and I can't wait to read you answers!

This is going to be fun! Please pay Miss Eliza a visit, and enter her competition!
Good Luck! :)


  1. I <3 B&N but unfortunately the closest one is 45 minutes away...maybe that's a good thing or I'd probably be there everyday!!!

  2. I know! The closest one to me is about 35 minutes away. I was thinking we could use it online though, right? Maybe shipping wouldn't be too high?

    Good Luck! I hope you win! :)

  3. Thanks for letting us know about the giveaway! My closest B&N is also 35 minutes away, but I still make it over there every once in awhile since my parents live right by one!

  4. You're welcome, Heather. I try to plan an all-day trip just to shop around, since it's a bit of a drive, every month or so. It's always a treat ~ shopping is so much fun! LOL

    Thanks for visiting! :)
