Obligatory exclamation where I express disbelief in the continual passage of time! Joke about an alternate holiday taking place on the same day as the anniversary! Question inviting readers to share in the joke?
Okay, meta sarcasm over. Traditionally, we here at Reading in Skirts do like to celebrate this blog’s birthday with a two-part giveaway: one half
platypus book-oriented and the other Mars clothing-oriented. So, what can you win this time, hmm? Let’s find out.
Part one: remember when I based a Literary Stylings outfit on this delightful contemporary romance novel? If you haven’t already picked up your own copy since then, here’s your chance to read it! One winner will receive their choice of an ebook or physical copy of Ruby Lang’s Acute Reactions. I loved it! USA Today loved it! I bet you’ll love it too.
Part two: look, I like Etsy. You know I like Etsy. A good number of my long-time beloved accessories and other pieces came from awesome independent Etsy vendors like Carouselink and the Faerie Market. If you already use Etsy, you probably have a favorite shop, and if you don’t even know what Etsy is–well, welcome! This is the internet! How are you? The second winner will receive a $25 USD Etsy e-giftcard to be used at the shop of their choice. (Don’t buy anything culturally appropriative, okay? Do me this one favor if you win. Make me proud.)
Here’s all you have to do: leave a comment with a VALID EMAIL ADDRESS on this post and tell us about a) your favorite literary couple, or b) the last time you made something crafty. You can also do both, if you’d like to enter for both giveaways. (Mind that you’ll win one at most, though.) Entries will be accepted until 11:59PM PST on Monday, June 29th. The giveaway is open to everyone, domestic and international! The winners will be chosen at random and I’ll announce them the day after the giveaway closes; if you win, you’ve have 72 hours to respond to the email before a new winner is randomly selected, so be sure to check your spam folders!
That’s all I got for you right now, so scroll down to the comments and enter! Or don’t. Hey, it’s no skin off my nose either way, pal.
