Not Everyone’s Mama 9 year Anniversary – Book Box and Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway

*Check me out on Cafepress and Etsy.
Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.
If an Amazon link is in a post, it is an affiliate link. Other relationships will be stated if there is one.
If you have shopping to do on Amazon, click on their logo below. It won't charge you anything, but it helps keep this site up and running and pays for the giveaways I do here and on my Facebook page. Thank you!

9 years of blogging

Can you believe it has been 9 years on my blog?  I started this blog when I was Jordan was 7, Kat was 2, and I was pregnant with Alyce.  Alyce is now 8 1/2 and Christiano is 6.  Time flies when you are having fun!

I want to thank you who have been with me this long and welcome all of you new readers who have joined me!  I decided that along with a $10 Amazon gift card, I would go through my shelves for the first time and part with some of my prized possessions. 

You have no idea how hard that is for me.  Maybe you do.  Many of you are book lovers. 😀

Let’s start with the books.  Some of these have been read once but many have not been because I have copies of them in my Kindle cloud.  I’m an ereader usually but I tend to hoard paperbacks.  A couple are signed to me, but you can pretend your name is Heather too if you’d like.  One is a duplicate I have somehow, the one I am keeping is signed to me because it is by one of my most favorite authors, but you can start this series with the brand new unread book.  One of these has the notoriety of being the only (not even bad) review I wrote where the author went after me on Amazon and then asked the tour host to make me remove my 3 star review.  Another book below, I was kicked off the tour which was upcoming by the publisher/author because of the same 3 star review I mentioned in the previous sentence. They are good books.  Don’t be too afraid.  😀 The box of books is US only.

cleaning out my shelves

There you have the 16 books that I will ship off to the winner!  I need to stop looking at that list because I’m sitting here, but but but..I want those still. 🙂  I’m going to go through the swag I have too and add some of that to the box for you.  I have tons of bookmarks and tons of duplicates of those bookmarks.

10 amazon

The next prize is a $10 Amazon gift card!  This one is up for international grab.  Buy some books, grab something else, do whatever you wish with your gift card. 🙂

Pretty easy entries and not a ton of things to do.  For the free entry, just let me know if you are US or International.  The other 3 are follow me how ever you like (2 times if you wish) and tweeting a tweet.

Enter in the Rafflecopter below.

Good luck and stick around for 10 years with me!!  I think I’ll see if some of my favorite authors will help me do a huge giveaway for marking a decade of blogging!
