5 years anniversary party: Welcome!

So today IS the day ;-) November 23, 2006 I started this blog and guys, I was never expecting for it to become what it's now. For me it was a place where posting random thoughts on the books I was reading... ok, I have told this story many many time, enough with it. To celebrate this day I asked to authors and publishers to be generous and to send me gifts... gifts that I now will share with you! Following a list of 237 giveaways: ebooks, print books, coupons and even some special prizes... you can start you hunt, then post a comment with 3 picks, first in first out, so I will try to send you pick n°1, if it's already gone, I will assign respectively n°2 or n°3, I hope it's not the case all 3 picks are gone, I will try to update the list so that you can see what is no more available. Remember, if you don't have a Livejournal account with an email in the profile I can contact you, or if you use Facebook or other accounts, and I don't have the way to reach you by email, please send me a private message with the info, otherwise you comment is not valid. Thank you and Enjoy!

You can see the covers of each prize here:

from n° 1 to n° 100: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.296448523722570.76814.100000722741394&type=1&l=44ae842d3e
