Aargh, I wish my blog template would number the comments. It sort of sucks to have to count, and then recount, and then count one more time just to make sure.

At any rate, THANK YOU to everyone who commented and visited!! I hope you’ll consider putting me in your RSS reader and/or come back and visit me on a regular basis. Have a great day, everyone!!

  1. I’d love a book. Maybe if I win, you could buy me a couple of ebooks for my kindle. That’d be awesome!

  2. I would love to win. My grandma loves to read books. She just diagnosed with lung cancer and reading boost her spirits. This would be nice. Happy new year.

  3. Iโ€™m in it to win it! I have been an avid reader most of my life and I almost always pass my books along to others as I finish them. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!

  4. Reading and writing-two of my favorite passions. Thanks for a great giveaway. I’m intrigued by the Twilight series.

  5. Reading is my favorite pasttime! I would love to win this prize! Please enter me in this giveaway!

  6. I would love to win a free book! This is awesome, I can’t believe I’ve never heard of “Buy a friend a book” week before. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I love reading and would love to get a new free book! I have several that are on my wish list as well!

  8. My best friend and I always share or books. It would be nice to buy her a book. Her birthday is in January. Thanks for the great contest.

  9. Glad for you to buy me one. If I had the money I had spent on books, I would live in a mansion and be rich! I always donate these when I read them, so still have noting to show for what I spent. If I had not would not have enjoyed life near as much because I live to read!

  10. Yeah, great idea! I know what I would want if I won – Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword And Sorceress XXIII (Paperback)
    by Elisabeth Waters

  11. My favorite thing to do is read. A new book to be is such a treasure, what might be waiting for me inside. A great story brings me into it, and I miss it when I am done.

  12. What a great contest! I love to read and would appreciate it if you would add my name. Thank you for the contest!

  13. I would love for you to buy me Chaos 2 Calm. This book is for a mother with multiple children. My friend has just had triplets, 1 girl and 2 boys, all just over 2 lbs. but breathing on their own and doing good. That’s 6 plus lbs, not much you think. Well if you see this tiny, petite, lady you would wonder how she could carry one much less three. She looks like she is 13. They have 1 daughter 18 mo. and I’d like to give her this book to read while they are waiting far from home to bring those little ones home. Great idea. I think at Amazon the book is 14.98 or about.

  14. I am certainly in it to win it–the hard thing to do would be to pick which book, since my wish list is so long!

  15. I do enjoy reading, Harry Potter, Ellen Degeneres books, even Danielle Steele time to time. I must say I would love to win this idea of a book that has inspired people in many ways. So thanks for having this contest. I hope TERRY is the lucky letters. Oh the book I like to have is “The Dream” by author Gurbaksh Chahal. oh but it is a $1 more… Happy New Year Karen

  16. What a great idea! My best friend started chemo today and I would love to add an uplifting (or sarcastically funny) book. She really needs something to make her smile.

  17. What a great idea. I already finished the book I got for Christmas and am anxious to read the sequel!

  18. oh great idea. this is my fav time to- snuggle and read- seems to rub off on the kids too which is cool cause its quiet

  19. Good luck to all who enter your competition but just the same
    I’m in it to win it.

    Thanks for the contest. Best wishes for a happy and prosperous

  20. No one loves books more than me, every new one is a blessing. Please bless me with my first new one for the 2009!

  21. Would love to win this for my friend. She has just let me borrow a 15 book series, Left Behind. And if I win her a book I am hoping she will let me borrow this one too. ๐Ÿ™‚
