It's been six months already?! [Giveaway]

I've never been the type to maintain a blog. I've tried countless times before. Xanga, Livejournal, even an old Blogger account, but I'd lose interest after a few months. Keeping one was never my thing. But a few months ago, I came across the concept of a book blog. I've always been a bookworm, and I was deciding which books to order on Amazon, so I was looking for reviews. Then I stumbled on a couple of book blogs, namely The Story Siren, The Undercover Book Lover, and The Bookologist, and then I realized I could turn my passion for books into something productive. I had no idea if I could keep it up, but those three blogs, along with a few others I found soon after, inspired me to start one of my own. So I did.

Now here I am, six months later, still totally absorbed with my blog. I never thought I'd be able to maintain it, but I surprised myself by never losing interest. Part of it is because it's something I'm really passionate about, but I owe pretty big part of it to you, my readers, too. So to thank you all for supporting me in my blogging endeavors and to celebrate E.B.B.'s sixth monthsary (and to celebrate the fact that I've reached 250 followers!), I'm having my first ever giveaway! I'm giving away copies of some of my favorite books, because I love them so much I want to give you guys a chance to love them, too, and some other goodies!

- 1 brand new paperback copy of When it Happens by Susane Colasanti
- 1 brand new paperback copy of Bloom by Elizabeth Scott
- Freefall by Mindi Scott bookmarks

- 1 signed copy and T-shirt of Minder by Kate Kaynak**
* Donated by Mavie of The Bookologist. Thanks Mavie!
