A GIVEAWAY - And it's Long Overdue

I've been thinking for some time now that I need to do a giveaway. And what better time than Christmas?

Here's the deal. I'm giving away a $25.00 Amazon gift card. You can use it to help you buy a Kindle, you can buy a book, or really just about anything. If you look around Amazon you'll find clothes, shoes, books, basketballs, video games, home decor--really about anything.

First entry: Leave a comment telling me why you like Christmas (or why you like me--I'll take either one)

Second entry: Follow my blog (and leave another comment)

Third entry: Leave a review of Gifted and/or rating on Goodreads (leave me a comment)

Four entry: Leave a review of Gifted on Amazon (leave me a comment)

Fifth entry: Post about this giveaway on twitter or facebook and leave me a comment (You can do this one every day of the giveaway--just be sure to leave me a comment)

This giveaway will run until Friday, December 16 at midnight.

Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!

I LOVE Amazon!

I like Christmas because of the time to reflect on Christ and to spend time with wonderful family (both sides).

I like you because you're an amazing person (and cousin). :)

Christmas is great because it gives me time to reflect on what's really important: the Gospel, Christ's birth, life, and sacrifice, and family.

Plus I'm out of school, and who doesn't love that?

Christmas--As the song says, "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" :) I love spending time with family, having delicious food, and most importantly remembering the true meaning of Christmas. Overall, I love seeing everyone HAPPY!

Thanks for being an awesome cousin! It's fun being related to such talented and famous people. Heehee!

I like Christmas because of the kids' excitement, the giving spirit, the twinkling lights, and of course the focus on the Savior.

I like you because I think we're really twins separated at birth. Except I don't sew. Or write books. Or cook elaborate meals. But we share a brain and that's the important thing. :)

Sadly, I cannot leave a rating for your book because it's all wrapped up and underneath my tree for some good after-Christmas reading! (I can't wait!!)

missy said...

I'm pretty sure I follow your blog. It shows up in my blog reading list. Is that how it works?

I love Christmas! I love the memories I have from when I was young and I love making memories with my kids. I love the lights on the tree! I love the smell of wrapping paper that fills the room on Christmas morning! The excitement, the food, the decor, the spirit it brings out in everyone....did I say I LOVE Christmas?

I love Christmas for the warmth of the Season. I love the fact that people are a bit kinder and there is just a feeling in the air.I love the season because I love to see my nieces and nephews faces when they go to see Santa or see the live reindeer or just see all the lights and as we put up the decorations and the tree.
