3. What should I improve for next year?
4. What was your first impression of Hope's Bookshelf?
5. If I have more contests, what would you like given away?
6. How often do you visit?
7. Any additional comments you have.

-->Sorry to all worldwide readers! I am a broke teenager so I can only ship the the United States.

Extra Entries:

+1 each place: Posting about it on your blog/myspace/facebook/wherever - just give me links!

I'm looking forward to all your answers, I've been looking forward to this contest for a while because of that. :] Any questions at all, please do e-mail me.

1. I love the idea that when you go onto the blog there's just so many things to look at and so much to offer.

2. Would you believe me when I say that there is nothing wrong with your blog, hope? I'm sitting here for like 5 minutes trying to find something and I got nothing.

3. Like you said in your goals to comment everyday, even if it's a blog about nothing lol

4. I loved all the colors, LOL

5. I like the idea of giving your opinion to winning contests. But I think a book is the best thing you can give away. =]

6. I visit everyday mostly. I feel like a stalker lol But yeah, I just started out so I look to your blog for ideas because your the one that helped me start my own blog. =]

This is my first visit to your blog.

1. What do you like most about the blog? I like the organization - the 3 column layout. It's easy to find everything.
2. What do you like least? The blurry header picture is a little hard on the eyes.
3. What should I improve for next year? The background is a little to busy and bright for my tastes.
4. What was your first impression of Hope's Bookshelf? That it looks like a very interesting book blog, but the color scheme hurts my eyes (hope that's not too brutally honest).
5. If I have more contests, what would you like given away? Books are my favorite giveaway items.
6. How often do you visit? I'm a first time visitor.
7. Any additional comments you have. I like what I see so far - the content of your posts looks great.
