One year Book Blogging Anniversary Extravaganza


Edit: This contest is International! Also you can pick the color of your choice.

In January I am celebrating my one year book blogging anniversary. I have met so many awesome bloggers, readers, and publishers this year and I want to have a fun contest as a thank you for all the support and fun times you all have given me here at

After careful thinking about what to do for my anniversary, my wonderful husband (who designed and coded up this blog) came up with the idea to give away a Sony Pocket Reader, such as mine seen above in the picture of me cheesing with my pinkalicious reader. I can’t say enough how many times I have thanked my husband for buying me my reader as a surprise gift. I love the store at Sony and that it is compatible with my libraries ebook system, and that it takes pretty much any format out there. I have read a lot with my reader and I hope the winner of this contest reads a lot with theirs. Hopefully this reader will come all loaded up (I haven’t worked on that part of it yet, procrastinator), with cool stuff from some of the pubs I have worked with this year.

There will be a secondary prize of a Powell’s gift certificate for $30 and a third prize for a YA book of ones choice.

Entries will be counted and a random number generator will choose our three winners.

To enter just Tweet: I want to win a Sony Pocket Reader from Bookalicious! #bookalicious

You will need to make sure to use that hash tag in order to win. Tweet only once. Multiple entries will be discarded and you will be disqualified. We don’t want to spam our friends for the whole month!

If you do want secondary entries, write a blog, or mention the contest on your facebook, or myspace about the contest linking to the post here on and tweet the link of your blog or update using the hashtag #bookalicious.

Contest runs all through January, I will announce the winners February 1st via a tweet from the Bookaliciouspam account to a vlog of the drawing. You then have one week to contact me for your prize. Good luck, good reading, and thank you!

    I would love to win this! I love reading but my husband says he is being overrun by books! LOl I have a bad habit of keeping all my favs and the ones I don’t keep I trade back out w/ the used book stores. This would be perfect!
