Saturday Spotlight!

So today my friend Kristen, over at Bookworming in the 21st Century, is featuring me on her Saturday Spotlight. It is a great honor because she is really an amazing blogger, with over 300 followers, and she's only been at it about as long as me! Since August, every weekend she features two bloggers that are new to the world of book blogging. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to expose even more people to my little blog and hope that you'll stick around if you're a first time visiter! (Of course if you're a regular visiter I appreciate you all the more!) Also the fact that my moment in the spotlight falls right before Blogger Appreciation Week (9/14-9/18) makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Yeah for the blogisphere!

Also in honor of my little bit of fame and the fact that I think you guys want another chance to win something, I'm announcing a new competition. The prize was chosen because I'm actually lucky enough to be going to see Philippa Gregory on the 19th and I thought, well...maybe my blog readers would like a little Tudor loving?


A Paperback Edition of The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

Who is your favorite British Monarch? Are you a Henry VIII girl? A Richard III guy? Or maybe you favor a little Queen Victoria with a side of Prince Albert? I'd be interested to hear what you think.

The Rules:
1. Open to EVERYONE (worldwide), and just because you haven't been following me all along doesn't mean you don't matter.
2. Please make sure I have a way to contact you if your name is drawn, either your blogger profile or a link to your website/blog or you could even include your email address with your comment(s).
3. Contest ends Wednesday, September 30th at 11:59AM CST
4. How to enter: Just post below
5. And for those addicted to getting extra entries:

If I hit 100 followers, I'll add a little something special!

Thanks for the chance!

I am a new follower of your blog.

Queen Victoria (1837-1901) is without a doubt my favourite! She not only inspired an entire era but also had a love-match marriage in a time when this didn't often occur, especially for someone royal.

+1 for answering the question
+5 if you are already follower

Aw, you're a sweetie. I keep forgetting to enter your contest! Bad me!

I really do love Queen Victoria. :)

+5 Already a follower!
