    I’m re-posting your blog contest anyway to tell my friends about your contest at http://contests-freebies.blogspot.com/2009/07/100th-post-lusty-giveaway.html.

    I’ve just read One Silent Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon and currently reading Elvenblood by Mercedes Lackey.

  25. And… oh… if I was allowed to enter the contest… I would have loved the goody bag! :)

  26. I can’t enter for both?! OY. Fine, then, the gift card, because who knows what I can find on my own? But these are both awesome prizes.

    The last book I finished was Steve Martin’s “Shopgirl” (I recommend it if you haven’t it!), and I’m now reading “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” Weird name, but a great book so far.

    Happy blogaversary! <3

  27. Congrats on your 100th post! I would like the gift card, but really I wouldn’t mind either, LOL!

    The last book I read was “Swimsuit” by Patterson.

  28. Happy Blogaversary!

    I’d pick the gift card!

    The last book I read was Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I’m going to watch the movie soon!

  29. Great giveaway. Enter me please for the Borders giftcard. The last book I read was Bushido about Japanese samurai.

  30. Very cool prizes! Wow! :)

    Last book I read was Out of The Pumpkin Shell by Nancy Werking Poling (sent to me bu the author and I devoured it ina day!)

    journey through books @ gmail.com

  31. Hi there! Congrats on your 100th blog! I would love to have the gift card. My most recent read was Hotter After Midnight
    by Cynthia Eden and am now a fan of her writing! I love the book and going to glom her backlist, ha.

  32. Congrats! I would love a gift card. I just finished Broken Wing by Judith James. Love Love Love the book.

  33. Oh, I would love the Harlequin prize for the tote bag alone!

    Last book I read, as in, am not currently reading…hmm
    What Happens in London. Ms. Quinn

  34. Congrats on your 100th post. :) Posts add up really fast, don’t they? The last book I read was Prom Dates from Hell by Rosemary Clement-Moore. It was for the Take A Chance reading Challenge I’m in. I’d love the Harlequin gift bag!

  35. Love your post on the convention. Let’s see, I’d like the bag if I were lucky enough to win. Last book I read was the Virgin’s Secret by Victoria Alexandra. She always throws in such great humor with her stories, even if they are regency romances.

  36. Congrats on the milestone – thanks for the contest!

    I’d love the giftcard :-)

    The last book I read was Sin, #1 Hamilton Sisters by Sharon Page (erotic historical romance/mystery).

    Actually, erotic doesn’t begin to describe the smokin’ variety of sex in this book … readers really should keep a fire extinguisher nearby in case they spontaneously combust! Not for the faint of heart.

  37. […] that TMI, I am signing off for now. But don’t forget to enter my contest before Monday for a Harlequin tote, 3 books, or a Border’s gift […]

  38. That Rachel Vincent looks awesome. The last book I read was Deidre Martin’s awesome With A Twist

  39. I really enjoyed your post on your RWA adventures. Thanks for sharing. The last book I read was Nora Roberts, Vision in White. Have a wonderful week. (I’d like the Harlequin bag and books!)


  40. Oh, a giftcard would be heavenly… I can spend hours in a Borders, easily. :-)

  41. I would love any of the prizes, but I am of course partial to a giftcard. :) The last book I read was The Secret History by Donna Tart. It was like my twentieth time reading it. Love.

  42. […] don’t forget my contest ends tonight at midnight! Leave a comment on last week’s post to enter to win one of two […]

  43. That first giveaway is so exciting! I would love the gift card. And the last book I read was THE LAURENTINE SPY by Emily Gee. Great romantic fantasy, very intense and exciting.

  44. I would like either one, but I’d be very happy with the tote – both of those books are on my wish list. The last book I read was Kiss Me, Kill Me.

  45. I just finished “His Lady Mistress” on the Stanza e-reader for iPhone.

    I’d love to have either prize, but am leaning towards the bag and books. The bad is just awesome; carrying it around would be great fun!

  46. I would like the gift card. My local Borders has been changing it’s look and I found a bunch of books I like.
    The last book I read is the one I’m still reading. It’s Auslander by Lewis Keley. It’s mostly suspense set in WWII. There is a romance thread throughout the book.


  47. I would love to win the bag and the books – those bags are just too cute!


  48. I would love the giftcard. The last book I read was Branded by Fire by Nalini Singh. I think she’s doing some of the best paranormal romance out there, right now.

    Thanks for the contest! I enjoy reading your blog, though I’m mostly a lurker. :-)

  49. Either of those prizes is awesome, but I’m going to go with the majority and say gift card. Hard decision, though!

    Last book I read was Garth Nix’s Sabriel (for the 6th time!).


  50. Knight of Desire by Margaret Mallory was the last book i read (historical fix, time of henry IV &V). the last book i listened to was Flory: A Miraculous Story of Survival By Flory A. Van Beek (think wwII).

    as for which prize…i would be happy to win either! ’cause either way, i end up with books!!!

  51. Congrats on your 100th post, that is a milestone! I would love to be entered for the tote bag, it is adorable!

  52. Whoops, I forgot to add that the last book I read was The Devil’s Company by David Liss.

  53. hmmm, i think i’d love that gift card… it’s so fun to buy things :D

  54. yikes, forgot to say i just read “White” by Ted Dekker… still working on a few more!

    (sorry about 2 comments)

  55. Congrats!! I would rather have the gift card because I received both of the books that are being given away to review.

  56. Congrats on your 100th post!

    Oh gosh, which to choose? I want both, really. I’d be happy either way, since I get books out of both deals :D But, if I had to choose, I’d probably go with the bag. Both books look to be very promising reads, and the bag is so cute!

    Let’s see, the last book I read was Knight of Desire by Margaret Mallory. Awesome, lusty read! ;)

    Currently reading Tamed By a Laird by Amanda Scott, and it’s delicious too!

    Thanks for hosting this great contest!

  57. The Man in the High Castle, by Philip Dick. The Borders card, of course. :)
