Happy 4th Blogoversary!

It's my Blogoversary! 4 years ago today I put text to virtual paper and created Chick with Books Blog!

During the past 4 years, Harry Potter flew from across the pond and landed, Twilight became a sensation and not just a time of day, We found out there were fifty shades of gray, and liked them …

We saw the eReader become a reality, Borders said goodbye, We learned to tweet (not twerk), found Facebook was more than a place to put your face, and learned to pin on Pinterest…

We traveled far & wide (and even time traveled), fell in love with many a hero including a few in kilts, and revisited some classics including a visit to a pig named Wilbur and his spidery friend Charlotte…

We saw writers getting published, and banned, and we read many great books. I've met many great people blogging here, and I want to thank you all for making Chick with Books the blog that it is today! You came here to read about books and bookish things, you shared your likes, dislikes and part of yourselves. You commented, lurked and tweeted. Thank you for it all! And as a thank you, here's another Blogoversary Giveaway!

I've read & reviewed a lot of books on Chick with Books, so I thought it would be fun if I gave away one of the books I've read & reviewed. ANY one of the books I've actually read and reviewed in the past 4 years! (not just blurbed about, but actually read & reviewed)  So, here's the giveaway…

Happy 4th Blogoversary Giveaway #2…

Take a look through all the books I've read & reviewed over the past 4 years and pick one out. The post will say "… a Review". This giveaway is for a paperback of any one of the books I've read & reviewed (not just blurbed about but actually reviewed). If you prefer a ebook version, that's ok too. If the book isn't out in paperback yet, you'll get a hardback. And if for some reason the book isn't available any longer, you can pick another book. Sounds simple enough? I hope so!

TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY… YOU MUST LEAVE A COMMENT (a post comment) AND in your comment along with your email, just let me know what book you'd like. And here's something new I'm going to try- Rafflecopter. A lot of bloggers use Rafflecopter for their giveaways, and I thought I would give it a try. (Not as part of the giveaway, but let me know if you like using Rafflecopter).

Congratulations on your blogoversary! 4 years! That's awesome :D Here's to many more!

I'd love to win a copy of Lolita. To my extreme shame I've never read it!

Happy blogiversary! I've love to win a copy of Wild... I loved Tiny Beautiful Things but haven't read that one yet. Plus I'd like to read it before the movie adaptation is released.

Hi Jennifer!
Thanks for entering the giveaway! Lolita was a great read. I was amazed at how wonderful the writing was. It was a reading group pick and offered a lot of discussion based on its controversial subject matter.

Good luck!

Hi Kerry!
Thanks for entering the giveaway! I loved Wild! I picked up the book as part of World Book Night from the library. I enjoyed it so much I bought a copy and had Cheryl sign it for me.

Good luck!

I think that after reading your review on The Uglies, this is the book that I would choose. Mazerunner sounded good too, but The Uglies sounds a bit different than the usual dystopian novel.
