EDIT: Contest is officially closed to entries. When I awake from my slumber on the morrow I shall use random.org to exact winners to prizes.
I have had such an amazing two years blogging here at Bookalicio.us. I have learned so much about the publishing industry and have met so many awesome readers, authors, publicists and so on. As I go into my third year of this publication, I have asked these friends that I have made to help me give you the readers of this blog a big thank you for reading. I was surprised and humbled by the fantastic response and I have so much awesome stuff to share with you guys, and I am super jealous of the winners! So thank you to all the sponsors, be sure to visit their sites and check out all the cool stuff they have coming up in 2011. First I will show you what we have to win and then I will tell you how to win it. Read carefully, it will be easy to win but last year I had over 1,000 disqualifications and I want you all to have a shot at these awesome prizes. The contest is open from January 5th – February 10th. Random Number Generator will be employed to find the winner. Secondary Prizes open internationally.
If you are new to this site here is some humbling praise from other bloggers, and authors:
Pam’s site is a reader’s Eden and she is Eve – offering tart reviews, juicy links, and bare-nekkid blogging know how.
Honest Book Reviews + Hilarious Snark ÷ Tiaras = Bookalicious Pam
Pam’s blog is addicting. I cannot look away.
If you want honesty, humor, and honesty (yes, she really is that honest), you must keep track of Bookalicio.us.
Consider yourself warned. You will find it hard to dedicate your time to activities other than her reviews, vlogs, interviews, guest posts, and her witty blog posts.

The Grand Prize:
I am so, excited. I am on the verge of almost spontaneous combustion here. I feel like there should be some special music here like the kind they use in The Bachelor as he decides which girl to give his rose or some other ridiculous thing.
