500 FOLLOWER BOOK GIVEAWAY!!

So my 100 follower giveaway hadn’t even ended before I hit 500 LOL. HOW IS THIS HAPPENING SO FAST. But I told myself I’d do another one at 500, so! Lo and behold!

This time: DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO THE BOOKS PICTURED. They’re just there to look pretty. :)

  1. The prize is as many books as you can buy with $20. YUP. YOU CAN GET MORE THAN ONE BOOK WITH THIS.
  2. To do this, you can use any book website of your choosing, but I highly recommend 3rd party sellers off of Amazon or bookdepository. Of course, this depends on where the books will be shipping to, but I VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND the Amazon option (if shipping to your country is possible). YOU CAN GET ONE BOOK FOR $4 OR LESS, if you hunt strategically. I HAVE GOTTEN 4-6 BOOKS (mostly used) FOR $20 THIS WAY.
  3. THE $20 DOES INCLUDE SHIPPING. Just so you’re aware.
  4. I AM an Amazon Prime member. This means I will not have to pay shipping for eligible items. If you’re the winner, I will gladly work with you and message back and forth to find as many books as you can within the limit.
  5. As this is a very warm thank you to those who made this possible, you must be following me, just-one—more-page. I will be checking! If it’s a secondary blog, a link to it must be somewhere on your primary so I can tell it’s you. (I strongly hope you won’t unfollow afterwards. I’m really an enjoyable person, and you may actually like my blog!)
  6. You may enter by both liking and reblogging this post, and you may reblog as many times as you like. Just be considerate of your followers, and avoid spamming them.
  7. No giveaway blogs allowed!
  8. I will choose a winner with a random number generator from the notes.
  9. When a winner is chosen, they will have 48 hours to respond to me and start to actively work with me about which books they choose before I randomly choose another winner.
  10. Please make sure your ask box is open! Otherwise I will not be able to notify you if you won.
  11. You must be comfortable with giving me a shipping address. I won’t keep it or do anything else with it, I promise. <3
  12. The giveaway ends at 12:00AM EST on October 1st!

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! NOW GO FORTH AND REBLOG, MY LOVELIES. <3 FOR THE LOVE OF BOOKS!

The Great Gatsby Analysis Part 1 (Chapters 1-5)

Here it is, The Great Gatsby analysis that I promised in this post. The Great Gatsby is often taught in schools but since I attended high school in the Philippines, it wasn’t part of our required reading. I haven’t taken it as part of a college course either. So all analysis here is just my own reading and interpretation of the book. I could be wrong so don’t take my word as bible or jack it for…

It’s my Happy Birthday Giveaway!! I’m turning 28 on Sept. 7 and my blog turned 4 on Aug. 29, so I thought why not hold another giveaway to celebrate. 
Plus, I’m starting my new job today, so its time for celebrations all around. 
As with last time, there will be 3 winners and each can pick one (paperback) book written by anyone they like! They don’t have to be the ones I have in the photo, those were just some of my favorites that I had photos of. 
This will be international thanks to Book Depository (but please make sure you live in a country they ship to)
Here are the rules!
You MUST be following me. I will be checking, no giveaway blogs please.
You can enter as many times as you like, just don’t over spam your own followers.
Likes and reblogs will count.
If you do win you have to be willing to give me your FULL mailing address (NAME, address, country etc).
Your ask box must be open for me to contact you.
Things to know
You have from today, Sept. 2, to 10 a.m. EST Oct. 2 to enter.
All the copies you get will be paperback (I’m not made of money you know)
Again, this will be international, so all may enter.
If you have any questions send me an ask!
The winners will have 48 hours from the time I contact them to get back to me or I’ll pick some one else.
Thank you so much for following and I wish all of you the best of luck!

GUESS WHAT? I’m going to be extraordinarily busy and not in my normal place at the time of the end of this giveaway. So I’m extending the end date!
You now have until 10 a.m. EST Oct. 4!
Yay two more days!
