1,000 Followers Giveaway @ Rabid Reads

Hey all! I’m a little late on this post but better late than never, right?

I’m pleased to report that I reached 1,000 GFC followers back in December and in early January hit 100,000 page views. Double WOW!

Have I told you gals (and guys, can’t forget that 8%!) lately how incredible you all are!? Seriously! Every one of your comments, e-mails, Twitter messages, Facebook likes, GoodReads review recommendations do not go unnoticed nor unappreciated. In case I don’t say it enough:


I’ve been mulling over how to celebrate these two momentous landmarks for several weeks now. I didn’t want this to be “just another giveaway”. As usual, it’s international and open to followers-only but this time around I decided to try something new. Something that’s never been done before!

The prize is starting off as a book of choice from The Book Depository (max $10 CAD) but then this is where you come in. For every 100 followers that I gain, regardless of which way you follow, I’ll increase the dollar amount by $5! This means that 1 book will turn into 2, then 3, etc. You get the idea. Here’s where things stand so far:

GFC: 1,240 +237
Linky Followers: 43 +193
Networked Blogs: 385 +141
Google+: 45 +199
RSS: 1,260 +379
Facebook Fans: 533 +183
Twitter: 1,419 +263
E-mail: 168 +105
GoodReads Friends: 1,075 +210
Total:   +1,910
$40.00 added to the prize!

I’ll keep updating these numbers and the prize amount as the giveaway progresses. The only mandatory entry is being a GFC follower. All of the others are optional and I’m not giving any entries for blog posts, grabbing the giveaway button, sharing on facebook, etc. But, the more you help spread the word, the more followers I’ll gain and the higher the dollar amount will climb. So it’s all up to YOU!

I’m setting a limit of $50 just in case you guys decide to go crazy! All entries must be received by March 11th at 11:59 PM EST.

Good Luck!
