My 27th Birthday Celebration!!

In a little over a month, I will be turning 27. Crazy, right? Maybe I shouldn't be looking forward to getting that much closer to the big 3-0, but I have to admit ... even though it means I'm getting older, birthdays always excite me! The most exciting part for me is having a birthday party to see all of my friends. I always LOVE seeing people come together for a celebration, no matter what the occasion may be. Since my birthday is coming up and this is my first year with my blog as well ... I figured I could have another celebration on here too! I treasure my followers as much as my friends, so it's like a little party all on its own. And what's a party without some gifts and favors??

So, here's the deal! I am going to be giving some of my followers gifts to celebrate my 27th birthday! Since I'm a girl that likes to mess around with numbers, I'll be deciding with three main sets of numbers: 10 (my birth month), 25 (the actual date of my birth), and 27 (my age this year).

What are the numbers about and what can you win, you ask? Let me tell you!

- As part of the entry form, entrants will list their top 10 books on their wish list.
- When the contest ends, I will randomly pick a number between 2 and 5. Whatever number is picked is how many winners there will be! This way, there will be at least TWO winners.
- There will be one (1) grand prize winner. After the grand prize winner is chosen, I will randomly pick a number between 2 and 7. The number picked is how many books the winner will receive. To add a sort of element of surprise, I will be choosing which books the winner will receive off of their wish list.
- The other winner(s) chosen will receive gifts selected by me. Prizes will range from $10-$25 in monetary value. These gifts may not necessarily be books, either. It's up to my choosing ... whatever I decide that I want to buy for you. Be sure to give me some good, specific ideas in the "Gifts Other Than Books" section on the entry form!

Now for the nitty, gritty details:
1. In order to be entered into the contest, you MUST fill out ALL of the required fields completely.
2. You also MUST be a follower of this blog in order to enter. I do check!
3. All numbers will be chosen randomly via random.org
4. This contest is INTERNATIONAL!
5. Book prizes will be shipped from Book Depository.
6. This contest ends at 11:59pm on Saturday, October 16th 24th - which is a little over a week before my birthday, so hopefully we'll be getting gifts around the same time! =)
* OPTIONAL: You can post this contest on your blog (post, sidebar link), Twitter, or other places for extra entries. It's not mandatory, but it does increase your chances of winning!

Good luck, guys!!

CONTEST IS CLOSED!
Thank you all so much for entering!
Winners will be selected and notified soon.
