Winner, winner! Chicken Dinner!!!

In the last six months, my book collection has increased exponentially.  Sadly, my lone bookshelf is filled to capacity and can’t hold one more page.  I’d been letting books pile up on my desk, nightstand, and (gasp!) on the floor in my office; things were spiraling out of control so I entered a giveaway for a new book shelf over at Bethany’s blog. 

The punchline?  I WON IT.

i won!

Now, thanks to Bethany and her dee-lightful sponsor, CSN Office Furniture, yrs. truly can finally clean up the mess o’ books and organize it–by COLOR, of course!  I’m frothing, positively swooning with excitement! 

Not only have I won something, but I finally have SOMETHING TO TWEET on Twitter!  Yes, I drank the Kool-Aid and am a card-carrying member of Twitter (booklineNsinker)–be sure to add me…or follow me…or friend me…or tweet me…whatever it is that you do on Twitter.

I’ve won other things in the past–a few books here on the blogs, a few radio contests, including tickets to see MC Hammer (it was the 90s, what can I say?), two tickets to the 1995 MTV Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall, and $100 in a Super Bowl pool. 

But what I really want to know is about stuff that you’ve won!  A book?  A new car?  A trip?  The lottery?  Tell me all about it.

      Congrats! I reviewed a bookcase from CSN a while back!

      I recently won an ARC of Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater and just yesterday won the The Dark Divine nail polish pedicure kit and an ARC of The Dark Divine on Bree Despain’s blog! 🙂 Woohoo!

        I won a holiday a few years ago and I have won £1000 before. I used to enter a lot of competitions when the girls were young. I also won the laptop I am writing on now. Well done on your win.

          wow, congrats. I am jealous. Have a great time with the new shelf. I’ve won a few books from blogs, but I rarely win much else.

            Winning the occasional book from giveaways seems to be my excitement these days.

            However, if we’re talking sporting events – I REALLY don’t like to lose.

                2. I’m totally following you on Twitter now.

                3. I won two blog contests before, both for books. One I still haven’t read but I have read the other! Er.

                  I have won tickets to see the Indigo Girls – hey, it was the ’90’s, an Allman Brothers cd, and some protein powder. I think that’s it. Congrats on the bookcase!

                    I seem to win books here in blogland a LOT and I’ve won a microwave (way back when they weighed 500 lbs and were as big as a stove.) but I have never won even $1 on lottery tickets. Congrats on your bookcase win.

                      Congrats! I would be excited too.

                      I think the biggest win I’ve ever had was a $500 gift certificate to a major department store (about 13 years ago). Oh, if only I could win something like that again soon…

                        Congrats! My best win was $2,000 from IKEA when they opened a store in my-then-neck of the woods. It was awesome!

                            what? a bookshelf? you can win a bookshelf? now that’s a contest worth winning. Hmmmm….what have I won? Well, I’ve won several books and am glad for that. Books are gold, really. And I’ve won all kinds of crafty things – and handmade papers. Oh yeah, I won a Philippe Starck gnome end table – pretty cool. And tickets to a play and dinner. but a bookshelf! that’s like the holy grail to a bookaholic!

                              Wahoo! I went through a period where I won lots of books. And while I didn’t really win this, some guy once gave us seats at an Angels game. We were standing in front of the ticket booth when he came up and said his kids couldn’t make it, so we should have their seats. That was cool.

                                Wow, sounds like you’ve won some awesome stuff. I think all us book lovers could always use an extra bookshelf (and I love your idea bout organizing your books by color!). I am new to entering all these contests so I haven’t won too much – two books (Mercury in Retrograde & Now and Then). Still, free books are always welcome in my world.
