Gift Card Giveaway!

Hello Friends!
Can you believe Christmas is only 5 months away?
I think that calls for a festive giveaway.
I have never done a GC giveaway before so I thought
I would offer all of my readers a chance at winning one.
How about a $50 gift card to Books A Million?
Doesn't that sound nice to find that special book or more.
If you don't have one in your area it can be used online.
Click here to see what they have available to purchase.
1. Leave me a comment here to enter.
2. Let me know in your comment that you
follow along on my blog for 2 chances to win.
Just a note..
However you may read my blog is wonderful.
If you use blog lines or are a private subscriber just
let me know and I will mark you down for 2 chances.
I'm thrilled you are a regular reader!
3. If you are a new follower and leave a
comment you also receive 2 chances.
The random number generator will choose
the lucky winner on Wednesday July 28th.
I will post the winner and mail it right away.
Thank you all for entering!
Have a fantastic weekend!
