1.000 Followers Giveaway

I still remember how excited I was when I first hit the 50 followers mark. A slow trickle that soon developed into a gushing river. And today? I'm still as excited to see new faces reading my blog. Not as though I'd actually see those faces hovering around my computer screen when I go to my blog (now that'd be scary), instead I rely on good old GFC to tell me good news like this!

Long story short - I've passed the 1.000 followers hurdle and it's time to say thank you to everyone out there for stalking me and my bookish passion. Now what would be a good way to celebrate this milestone? Let me think ...

... how about a giveaway?

*cheerful woohoo's and thundering applause*

There will be two winners - as I want to spread my love equally there will be one winner from the US who'll receive an Amazon Giftcard worth $25,00 and one international winner who'll get their choice of books worth up to $25,00 from The Book Depository!
Please note: This giveaway is open worldwide, but only for countries TBD offers free shipping to - please check here.

All you have to do is fill out the form!
This giveaway is now closed!

Yep, first time I'm actually not going for the good old leave-a-comment method and I'd like to blame Blogger for this. Since they implemented the admittedly wonderful option of directly replying to comments I haven't been able to get the whole numbered-comments-thingy to work again *sigh*. The last giveaway hop nearly killed me as I counted three times to be sure about having the correct winner. Anyway, form it is, but comments filled with cheering and woohoo's are very much appreciated too!

Comments do not count as entries - you must fill out the form!
For this particular giveaway following my blog is obviously mandatory, after all it is thanks to my followers that I'm having it. That said, you must be a follower of my blog! You may follow through your preferred channels such as GFC, Networked Blogs, Bloglovin', Linky Followers, Goodreads, RSS feed or by e-mail.
One entry per person.
Open worldwide.

The giveaway is open from February 27th through March 7th - two winners will be picked through random.org on March 8th and will then be contacted by e-mail as well as announced here on my blog. The winners will have 48 hours to respond and if he/she fails to do so I will draw a new winner.
