Blogfest 2010 Giveaway!

The winner is the blogger of BURIED IN BOOKS  Congrats! 

Welcome to Blogfest 2010! 
Thanks to Cinnamon of A Journey of Books for organizing this! 

Update!   The prizes below are for US winners.   BUT if the first name I draw is an International or Canadian winner, I will send Room by Emma Donoghue through Book Depository as long as it delivers to your country.    Then I'll draw again for a US winner for the below prizes.

Today's giveaway is about Reflections with Coffee, the name of our blog.   Remember Alice, after Wonderland, went Through the Looking Glass?     Our giveaway is  Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy: Curious and Curiouser sponsored by FSB Media.   This is a fantastic thought-provoking book.  Why is the caterpillar blue?  Why does the Chesire cat's grin remain?

Along with the book is a handmade pin from Picture Purfect Design of Alice Too Tall.  As Diane, the designer, wrote:  "Lucie Mabel Atwell created a different look for Alice--a little bit cuter than the usual illustration, but how neat! Look at this Alice's red hair and adorable dress--and the White Rabbit is not to shabby either?

Three spectacular charms add that perfect touch--A solid pewter key, a terrific double sided pewter Alice, and a decked out pewter White Rabbit, also double sided."

I love wearing Diane's pins!

Next up is Coffee Confessions,  seven original stories set in a small fictitious coffee shop in Houston, Texas. Owner Sandra James serves up coffee, books, music and good ole’ fashion customer service that keeps her shop full of eclectic patrons.  The stories range from inspirational to speculative fiction and just about everything in between.  Thanks to Nia Promotions for sponsoring this giveaway!

Over 200 blogs participating, so I'll keep the entry requirement short and sweet, just your name and email address (so that I can contact you if you win).   Winner will be chosen by 

Then you can head on to Odyssey Books in Australia.   If you get lost on the way, head back to A Journey of Books for the full list.  Better yet, use  the tracking site there which will allow you to track your progress through BlogFest 2010!  You can log on from anywhere at any time and continue where you left off.  The best part is that every blog that you visit and mark off through this tracking site will give you one entry into the massive giveaway!

Come back here Wednesday, September 15, for more giveaways!
