Guess my birthday giveaway!

June 1, 2009
birthday bashThis one's a pretty simple contest...  To enter, just leave a comment and guess the actual date of my birthday.  One clue for you - it's in June (lol!)... Everyone who guesses the right date will be entered into the drawing, and Randomizer will pick the winner. In addition, you'll have one extra guess if you're a follower, and two extra guesses if you share - that's 2 per share, ladies & gents! 

For every 10 people who enter, 1 winner will be picked, with up to 3 winners. What're you playing for? Up to three of the following books (mix & match, it's your pick...)--first winner picks 3, second winner picks 2, and the third winner picks 1.

I'm going to guess June 20th, because that's my lucky number. And, I don't know if being subscribed by e-mail or following you on Twitter counts as a follow, or if you're only counting actual Blogger followers. If it does count, I'll take June 14th as my second guess (06+14=20). Otherwise, I'll stick with just the 20th.

In any case, Happy Birthday, whenever it is.

Lisanne624 said...

My birthday is June 24, so I will guess that date. After all, we're both book lovers extraordinaire, so maybe also share a birth date!

Since I am an email follower, I'll guess June 25 also.

Bingo said...

Well, I had to double check as I thought I had guessed already. For some reason, I believe your birthday is June 6 so just send me my prize :D

Bingo said...

Well...since I would follow you anywhere but at least do on your blog, my second guess is June 17! Right? yep, I knew it. Of course, there are other dates it could be but with me about 28 other numbers could be right, so statistically I have 2 out of 30, or 1/15th chance of winning and hmmmm, with 116 people entered that means right now about 7 of us could be right out of the 116...ahh, can you tell I miss teaching already? SO DO WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL JUNE 30 TO FIND OUT? HOW CAN WE SEND PRESENTS?

LadyVampire2u said...

Just for a random guess I'll say June 11th and since I am a follower and get another guess..I'll say June 27th.
Either way, if your birthday has come and gone or is still on the way..I hope you get everything you wish for and more. Happy Birthday!
