GIVEAWAY! The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf! {CLOSED}

I am so excited to present a giveaway of one of my favorite childhood books! "The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf. The winner will receive 1 new paperback reprint of this 1936 classic children's book. To read my review on this book, please scroll down or click HERE. :)

Giveaway is open to the US only. I'm not being compensated in any way for this review and giveaway. The book came out of my own pocket as will the shipping. So I am very sorry to those in other countries- I really wish I could afford the shipping! But I cannot so I must restrict this to residents of the US. Thank you for understanding.

HOW TO ENTER
Mandatory Entry
♥- Leave a comment telling me the name of your favorite childhood book AND where (name the blog or site) you found the link for this giveaway! Don't forget to leave your email address so I can contact you if you win. (worth 1 entry)

Bonus Entries- Please make a new post for each entry. Leave your email address with each one or make sure it's imbedded in your profile so I can contact the winner. None of these will count if you have not done the mandatory entry first. If you accidentally forget your email address (or somehow else make a mistake), please don't just add another comment to correct it: delete the comment that is lacking it and repost it with all the corrections so I don't think that you are trying to cheat and get more entries. You may do any or all of the following bonus opportunities in any order:
♥-Become a follower of this blog and comment letting me know. If you're already a follower this counts too, just leave a comment saying you are. (worth 1 entry)
♥-Take my poll in the column to the right. Don't forget to leave a comment saying you did. I will count voters to make sure you did. (worth 1 entry)
♥-Comment on any of the reviews on this blog. (Even old ones.) Leave a comment here telling me which review you commented on so I can go read your comment. You may comment on multiple reviews for more entries, but commenting more than once on the same review still only counts as one entry. Comments must be real comments, thoughtful, more than just, "Neat" or "wow that's cool" KWIM? (worth 1 entry per review which you have commented on)
♥-Visit my main blog http://everypreciousjoy.blogspot.com/ and comment on any post on the first page. Leave a comment here telling me which post you commented so I can check. You may comment on multiple posts for more entries, but commenting more than once on the same post still only counts as one entry. Comments must be real comments, thoughtful, more than just, "Neat" or "wow that's cool" KWIM? Only comments on the most recent blog posts (what's on the front page at the time of your comment) count. Comments on old posts do not. (worth 1 entry per post which you have commented on)
♥-Blog about this giveaway. Leave me a link to the post so I can see it! (worth 2 entries -post once for each entry like "Blogged it #1" and "Blogged it #2". Don't forget the link.)
♥-If you see that another entrant has found this giveaway through a link that YOU posted about this giveaway, you may make another post per referral to claim it as a bonus entry. These will not automatically be credited so if you want to make use of them you will have to check back and claim them. ;) (worth 1 entry per refered entrant)


Giveaway entry starts now and lasts until (extended until Saturday, 10/31 at dark), when the winner will be randomly selected by random.org and posted here. I will try to email the winner but sometimes my email glitches so the safest way to find out in time if you've won is to check back here this weekend! The winner will have until dark on Monday night to respond to me with their mailing address before I chose a new winner.

Please understand I'm a mother of 2 toddlers and getting to the post office is about as daunting as going to the moon sometimes, so it may take a week or two for me to get the book in the mail after receiving the winner's mailing address. I will of course be aiming for the next day but please understand if it takes a bit longer.
