Especially for You

In honor of reaching 100 followers
(101 now!),
I want to give something back to you in the form of a giveaway.
CSN has offered my readers a 
$45 gift certificate to any of their stores. 

I recently won one of these myself thanks to 
The Annoyed Army Wife. 
I actually gave mine to my mom for her to use.
Being overseas for Christmas this year, 
I didnt feel like Id done enough for her so I 
wanted her to have something else.
She was thrilled which made me even happier that
Id given it to her.

Now, had I have kept it, I would have looked into 
buying a new office chair. 
My current one was $5. I got it back home before
we moved from a large retail store. 
It was on sale and I had a coupon, so it ended up 
being only $5. Well, the old saying is true:
You get what you pay for. 
I thought I would love this chair, but I 
definitely dont. It is not comfortable at all when 
sitting for long periods of time and 
my back always ends up hurting after sitting in it.
While browsing the CSN store All Modern, 
I found several chairs that I liked, 
including the round chair.

The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a 
$45 coupon to any of CSN's stores. 
Just remember that you need to have a US or Canada 
address. If you live overseas, perhaps you
can ship it to a friend or family's house? 

Entering is easy and the winner will be chosen by
Random.org on January 11th at 1700 CET. 

To enter:
*You MUST be a follower of this blog and leave me a comment telling me this. (1 entry)
*Follow me on Twitter and leave a comment telling me this with your user name. (1 entry)

*Leave a comment telling me your suggestion for a must read book. (1 entry)

So that's it. 
Five chances to win.
Please leave one comment for EACH entry.
(Im not sure why, but most people cant seem to do this. ;) 

Good Luck!

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time is a good read. I couldn't put it down. It's by Mark Haddon.

After blocking a european with no picture on twitter (oooops), I have requested to follow you. @AYoungRetiree. Can you tell I'm overly cautious of who reads my ever so important tweets? Then I just said forget about it.

♥ Elizabeth said...

I also tweeted about it... but I don't know how to post a link to a specific tweet, so you'll have to check your mentions, sorry :( But it was me @AYoungRetiree

Book suggestion is kind of 3 because it's a series...The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest. They're long, about 600 pages each, but sooooo worth it!
