Barnes and Noble Gift Card Giveaway


I was cleaning this past weekend and found this Barnes and Noble $50 Gift Card in the bottom of a draw. I immediately called the # on the back and the card still had $50. I remember getting the gift card from a friend after I graduated college, but I am not that much of a bookstore reader. As you know, I love the library. So I am giving away my gift card to one lucky reader.

I just picked up from the library: I Do, Now What? Secrets, Stories, and Advice from a Madly-in-Love Couple by Giuliana and Bill Rancic
I just started watching their reality show and had to get the book. I think Bill is great and Giuliana is growing on me. Have you read this book yet?

Now for a great giveaway for one of my lucky readers: The $50 Barnes and Noble Gift Card.

How to enter: Let me know what great book you are reading or what you would buy with the gift card. Is there a great wedding book you want to splurge on?

How to get extra entries:
-Post about this giveaway on your blog, linking back to Saving Money for a Wedding
-Grab my blog button for your blog or become a Blog follower
-Subscribe to my blog
-Leave a comment on a non-giveaway post and let me know which post

The giveaway will end on Wednesday, February 2nd @ 11:59 pm EST. I will pick the winner randomly and will send them an email. The winner has 48 hours to respond to the winning email. Good Luck and thank you all for checking out my blog. Enjoy!

  80. I <3 books!

    I'm reading through the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton but I also plan on reading the Lord of the Rings set here pretty soon. I read 103 books last year and hope to read about half of that this year but with books of more substance. My plan is to tackle a good classic each month in addition to anything else I want to read.

    I would probably use my gift card to get some of the great children's books I remember and want to re-read and pass on to my children in addition to some classics that I don't have yet.
