What is it? BlogFest is a blog run of sorts. A list of participating blogs will be provided on September 28, each offering a fantastic giveaway for readers to enter. Each blog will link to another, pulling readers through the fantastic party we'll have set up for them!

Grand giveaway: For the past two years, we have picked one blog visitor that won a great big box of fun prizes. This year, every blog that you mark on the tracking site earns you one entry. Each participating blog also gets to choose one visitor and that person earns 10 entries. One winner is chosen to win the box of awesomeness.

I love participating in the Blogfest. Each year I have a topic I want to share with you next to giving away the good stuff! This year I want to share a bit of my bday bash with you all. Even if it’s a month ago I have pics I thought would be fun to share. You see, each year I have a few gals over who love to read just as much as I do. We always give each other books and this was my book haul this year:

My Giveaway *CLOSED*:
(due to flu winnners will be picked later this week)
* One $20,- Gift Certificate of your choice (and where I can pay with CC)

* One book of your choice up til the amount of $7,99 (and where I can pay with CC)

* Two chances to win a handcrafted, silver bookmarker.

All you have to do is leave a comment what's on YOUR bday wishlist! Oh, and leave a way for me to get back to you!! That's very important if you win ;) Winners will be contacted and have to reply within 72 hours.

  64. My birthday isn't until January, but believe me, my birthday list always includes books, makeup, perfume, and jewellery. This year, I'm hoping for more books (as usual), a small camera so I don't have to lug my huge one out when I'm taking photos for my personal collection and blog, better health, more rest, and more time to read! (I am also wishing that I win your amazing giveaway!). Happy belated birthday. You certainly have a lot to smile about!
