My two year Blogoversary Bash Giveaway!


I'm two! Well my blog is anyway!


For What It's Worth will be two years old on December 15th - but let's celebrate all month shall we??

You know I love a good giveaway and I had to have a BIG one since it's been TWO years since I started blogging, plus it's the holiday season!

Let's get right down to it......

There will be FOUR winners!

First Prize!

A $50.00 Amazon Gift Card (International winner will receive $50 in books from The Book Depository)

Second Prize:

Your choice of THREE books from my favorite reads of 2011. (selection below)


Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Enclave by Ann Aguirre, Bridge by Jeri Smith-Ready (as part of the Enthralled anthology - various authors), Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade, Divergent by Veronica Roth, Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins 

Third Prize:

Ok - I'm going to interrupt this giveaway post and take a moment to thank a few special people who have really made blogging such an incredible experience, especially over the past year. (it results in a prize for you!)

To: Tiger - All-Consuming Books, Julie - My 5 Monkey's, Alex - Eclectic Inspirations, Brooke - Brooke Reports, Tori - Book Faery, Carrie - In the Hammock Blog, & Lena Beana - Addicted 2 Novels.....

Thanks to all of you for sharing the book love (and sometimes letting me vent when it's not book love). Thank you for helping me through reading slumps, blogging slumps and a host of other blogging dilemmas. Most of all, THANK YOU for ALWAYS making me laugh!! You all keep me sane (or something resembling sanity). Love you all!!

I asked Tiger, Julie, Lena, Alex, Brooke, Tori, Carrie & Lena to tell me their favorite books for 2011. (Several of them picked Enclave so I added it to the mix)

You get to choose TWO books from their favorites! (selection below)

Divergent by Veronica Roth, Crossed by Ally Condie, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, The Help by Kathryn Stockett, Dearly Departed by Lia Habel, Queen of the Dead by Stacey Kade, Enclave by Ann Aguirre


Fourth Prize:
You get all four of my favorite indie/self published books of the year via Amazon Kindle:


Between the Lines & Wherever You Are by Tammara Webber, Sophie & Carter by Chelsea Fine, Geek Girl by Cindy Bennett

Fourth place prize is for US Only - and you need a Kindle or e-reader with the ability to read Kindle books for this prize.

  56. Wow! Two years and you've made such headway!? You've done extremely well with your blog..just amazing. It's not easy getting blogs up and running and you've created a lot of followers in that relatively short timeframe. That takes work and dedication towards a goal, absolutely. Good for you! Congratulations are well in order, and well-deserved, Karen. I'm a new friend and follower, but I'll be back. Wishing you all the best and continued good charms for the future. Deb/TheBookishDame
