1 Year Blogiversary and Giveaway!

Well, we are coming up on the big one year anniversary here at Library Educated HQ. (It's technically the 12th, but wanted to celebrate on a Friday not a Monday. Monday = Bleh)

Basically, I think that the book blogging community has some of the most smart, funny, creative, lovely people on the internet. At least in my experience I think this is basically a fact.  I enjoy reading my way through so many other book blogs, it's usually I highlight of any day! I am always inspired by the cool things that other people are doing.Thank you for guest posting here, thank you for letting me guest post on your blogs.

Thanks to everyone who reads the blog for your kind suggestions, your kind comments, your support and everything else. You make my day all the time.

TL;DR: I love you all. Thank you.

To thank you I'm doing my very first giveaway! (Well I've been a part of giveaways before, but this is just from me to just you. Just for the USA and Canadian readers, sorry beloved International readers. I will get you in on the next one.) Also using Rafflecopter for the first time. It was easy and they're websites make them seem like they are funny bunnies.(Having said that, if it isn't working let me know!)

So here's the deal with the giveaway. If you are the winner, you get a scarf lovingly handmade by me! I'll even let you pick the color so it matches your favorite fall/winter jacket.

The second prize you don't actually get to keep, but you get to pay it forward for women and children in need. I will make up a box of needed supplies and donate it in your name to the local women's and children's shelter in my city. A prize to keep and a prize to give, I thought it was fitting considering we are barreling towards our seasons of gratitude and gift giving.The last day to enter is the 13th, so get to scooting!
