200 Follower Giveaway!!

Welcome to my very first giveaway! I'm so thrilled to have reached just a little over 200 followers on my blog. When I first started this blog, I honestly didn't think anyone would read it. It was just a place for me to share little bits of my life, and then I discovered a group of wonderful people: book bloggers - people who love books as much as I do, and love to talk about them, share their experiences, make recommendations, and show their generosity. Being a book blogger has been a great source of joy for me; not only have I had the chance to 'meet' literally hundreds of fellow book lovers, but I've also had the opportunity to talk to authors, as well. Very exciting stuff to a wannabe author!

So, onto the good stuff! For most of the month of September, I'm going to be hosting this giveaway for my wonderful, lovely followers. 

~The Official Details~
*You must be 13 years old or older to enter.
*You must follow Ramblings of a Daydreamer.
*ONE winner will choose ONE book of their choice from the list below.
*This is open to INTERNATIONAL followers as long as you see your country listed here.
*There are extra chances to win, which will be explained below.
*This giveaway ends on Friday September 23rd, 2011 at midnight EST.
*Winner will be chosen and announced on Saturday September 24th, 2011 and will be notified by email. I will also announce it on my blog and Twitter. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to email, and if I don’t hear from the winner in that time, another one will be chosen.
*Any personal information you give me (real name, email address, home address, etc) will remain private, but must be accurate so that if you're chosen, you can receive your prize!

~Extra entries~
When filling out the form, please provide direct links*. The required parts are starred, but all the extra entries aren’t required - I like being connected with fellow book lovers/writers/bloggers, and it gets you extra entries, so it's win-win. I figure you can never have too many book loving friends! The more you do, the more entries you get and the more chances to win! There are a maximum of 19 entries for this giveaway.
*For direct links to Twitter and Facebook, once you’ve made your post, directly underneath it, there’s a time stamp (something like 5 seconds ago, 2 minutes ago, whatever). Click on that, and another window will open with your post. That’s the direct link, so that’s the URL you copy and paste. I didn’t know that for the longest time, and figured I can’t possibly be the only one, so thought I’d share! lol*
