drey's birthday giveaway: week 1...

June 1, 2010
birthday hatGood morning, everybody!! June is my birthday month, and to celebrate I thought I'd do a lil' something for y'all... Are you interested? Hmm? *grin*

I have 12 books to give away this month. Every 8th day I will pick a winner, who will tell me which 3 books he/she wants. This means that 4 winners will receive 3 books during the month of June. Some of these are sets, some are stand-alone. I am listing 6 books this week, and 3 each for the next 2 weeks.

Giveaway is open to US residents only. Sorry folks, my budget's kinda busted... =( To enter, comment and tell me your favorite part about birthdays... =) Mine is the cake. But only if it's cheesecake from Simma's (a local bakery). Yummmmmm... Somebody feel free to send me some... *grin* Oh, and comment before 6:00 pm CST June 7th!

Ok. I know you're waiting patiently! The first 6 books are:
Across the Nightingale Floor (Tales of the Otori #1) by Liam Hearn
Grass for His Pillow (Tales of the Otori #2) by Liam Hearn
Brilliance of the Moon (Tales of the Otori #3) by Liam Hearn
The Better Part of Darkness (Charlie Madigan #1) by Kelly Gay

My favorite part about birthdays is the surprises! I just love being surprised. Even when I was a kid, I never tried to find my Christmas presents early. I wanted to be surprised!

Happy Birthday. My favorite thing about birthdays is the day devoted to this lovely celebration. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

Christa said...

Happy Happy Birthday Month. : ) I have relatives that celebrate birthday months instead of birthday days. I always thought that was neat.

My favorite part of birthdays? To be honest - if it's possible, I try to take the day off from work & just relax. That & the cake are my favorite. : ) Chocolate or cheesecake, of course.

Thanks for the giveaway.

My favorite part of birthdays is getting to be a little bit selfish for one day! I can tell my son and husband ," No, I will not do that, it is my day and I am reading!". Sounds perfect!!!
Oh..Happy Birthday month!!!

My favorite part of birthdays is getting to choose where to eat out that night! I know, it's silly, but I'm so passive about things that I always let others choose where to go whenever I go out to eat with people. But on my bday, it's my choice and if they don't like it TOO BAD lol

I look forward to celebrating with you this month =) And I hope you get that yummy cake you mentioned.

Happy birthday month. What do I love about birthdays - anything special - don't do it so much for adults in our household but our DS gets pretty spoiled - his birthday is tomorrow and so far he has gone to a local amusement place, taking cupcakes to school today and then tomorrow night at scouts. I love doing extra special things to make him feel good - made smores the other night and I think I will get a few balloons for him tomorrow in addition to his choice of where we eat or what I make for dinner and tons of presents.

Not a big cake fan, except this one amazing Mocha Crunch cake from a local bakery!

It's my birthday month too! (a few more days) For the last 20 years the thing I enjoy most about my birthday is getting hand made card from my son. It's getting so much harder to convince him to make them but I keep and cherish them all.
Happy Birthday to you!!!

Since my birthday is exactly one week after my grandson's, the big "family blowout" has very recently taken place. So what I love is getting together with my more immediate family for a relaxing evening -- oh, and of course the solon treatment mu daughter-in-law always gives me.

My favorite part about birthdays is that it's okay to make the day all about ME! I get to be Queen for a Day and everyone has to do what I want to do. And then there's the cake, ice cream and presents. Perfect. :)

Bethany C. said...

Happy Birthday! My favorite part of birthdays is that everyone's mission is to make me happy. Nothing bad is allowed to happen- because it's my birthday! That's the theme.
(And I have to say, you're awfully generous giving gifts to others for YOUR birthday!)

Happy Birthday!! At 51 there are not many things to look forward to on my birthday. My hubby usually takes me out to eat so I guess that is what I look forward to.

debbie said...

Happy Birthday! I usually make whatever I am hungry for whether it is creme de menthe chocolate ice cream cake or dark chocolate turtle cheesecake.It is the one day I take off. I don't do anything for anyone on that day. I just do what I want to do.

Persephone said...

My fave part of my birthday is the feeling of being appreciated. The glad you were born feeling. Plus a gift of a good book isn't that bad either. (I can't say presents are the best part, because I never usually get anything I is laughable)

Anita Yancey said...

My favorite part about birthday's is the presents. I love getting presents. Thanks for having this great giveaway.


holdenj said...

I love the candles! As we've gotten older, we are very creative in putting the ages on the cake. Sometimes they burn down a little too far as everyone tries to figure it out.
Happy Birthday month!

Becca said...

Happy Birthday!!!

My favorite part of birthdays is the gifts. I feel like I should say it's about spending time with family and friends but that would be lying. I like gifts.


Nancye said...

My favorite part about my birthday which is also in June would be the birthday cake. My mother used to bake me a red velvet cake each year, but she passed away in 2002. I am just happy that I have lived another year with all of the medical problems that I have and hope to get a call from my daughter and grandson.

Thank you,


PS Happy Birthday to you!

Mare/TommyGirl said...

I'm a firm believer that birthdays should be required pampering days. I always take my birthday off and just relax, read a book or go to a movie. I just like to celebrate another year.

My favorite part of my birthday is the carrot cake. It's my favorite kind of cake & I rarely indulge in it except on my birthday.
Happy Birthday Month!
