Summer Giveaway Hop

August 1, 2011
Are you excited for a fun new giveaway? Yep, me too. 

As you may or may not know, I was an English major in college. I love reading, and I love books. Typically, this blog deals mainly with my cooking and crafting adventures, but I assure you, I am in the background reading, reading, reading as much as possible. That’s why this giveaway is so fun for me.

Here are the prizes up for grabs here at Ninth Street Notions:

(1) Bookmark by Simply C Boutique
(1) Set of Bookplates by Belle Papiers
(1) copy of The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs by Alexander McCall Smith donated by me

gently read and still readable for years to come
So the winner will receive this delightful prize pack. Giveaway ends August 7 and winner will be announced August 8. Winner will be e-mailed and will have 72 hours to respond, or another winner will be chosen. Open to U.S. residents only. Entries must be completed using Rafflecopter form.

Get in on the other giveaways (more than 300 blogs are participating!) by visiting I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.
