i heart (plus a giveaway)

Isn't my new book cover just gorgeous. I HEART IT!

I was just surfing Etsy, looking for nothing in particular and bumped into the Hide-a-Book Shop. I instantly fell in love with Shanna's "Sweet Birds" cover and ran for my credit card. (I know, you must be thinking about my resolutions, especially that pesky one where I said I wouldn't spend money on random, needless things)... but I NEED this! See I love my books and cherish them dearly. I always take the covers off when reading a hardcover, but most of the books I read are paperback. This cover fits those large paperbacks! Hooray. Now I won't have to worry about bending the edges - which no matter how much I try not to, always happens. Plus, sometimes I don't want people to know what I'm reading... although that rarely happens. See... two birds with one stone. I think this was a great investment... don't you?

GIVEAWAY: Thanks to the lovely Shanna at Hide-a-Book, you all have a chance at winning one of these fantastic and wonderfully stylish/chic (if I do say so myself) book covers. That's right! One winner will have the chance to pick their choice of book cover and Shanna will mail it to you directly. Exciting, right?!!

As always, leave a comment for one entry. If you'd like extra entries just say so in your comment or separate comments (extra entries for followers, Twitter, sidebars, blog posts, Facebook, etc.) ; and for putting my spiffy little button on your blog. Make sure to leave an e-mail address, especially if you are leaving a comment under Anonymous.

And don't forget to drop by Hide-a-Book for a peek at what Shanna has to offer. She even takes custom orders for textbook or Moleskine notebook covers. Very neat.

Rules: This contest is open to U.S. and Canada residents only. The winner will be drawn on Sunday, January 24.

These are so cute. I didn't see this one on her site. I think the Gothic Rose bookcover is my favorite. I wish she made ones for hardcover.

This is a really good idea. I hate when paperback books get bent and so on from being carted around. I would love a chance to win. :)
