Book Geek Giveaway

One of my favorite summer activities is reading outside. I have a childhood memory of my mother finding me reading on the couch. She told me to “go outside and play,” so I took an afghan under a tree so I could finish my book. My mother took a picture, and I wish I could find it so I could share it.

I still read outside, although not as often as I would like. Books are comforting; I often spend my lunch at the bookstore browsing titles (and finding additions for my library).

My nostalgia has a purpose. When I was at Schuler's Book on Tuesday these geeky buttons caught my eye. It reminds me of the Pizza Hut Book It! button (and free personal pan pizza!) I earned in elementary school. 

So whether you are a chick novel fiend; an elitist who only reads classic literature; a nerd who reads sci-fi and fantasy; a sleuth looking for clues in mysteries; or read a little bit of everything (like me), keep reading this post for giveaway details.

In literature, important plot development usually happens in threes, so here are three ways to enter:

1. Leave a relevant comment in this post. Ex: I am reading __. My favorite book is __. I read your blog because __.
2. Follow my blog with the Google Friend Connect link in my blog's sidebar. 
3. Follow my twitter account jmtoole and retweet the contest to your followers. Both steps must be fulfilled for entry.

The giveaway ends on Monday, July 18, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern). I will draw the three winners using Random.org. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, July 19. 

Entry does not guarantee a prize. This contest is open to all contestants; however; if a winner does not respond to notification of winning by the July 31, 2011 he or she forfeits the prize. 

This is the official a Shimmering Star blog giveaway kickoff. Watch this blog for more fun contests and giveaways.
