Comment Contest - BEA Giveaway #2

While BEA is now behind us, I still want to share some BEA love with everybody! Inspired by Sheila over at Book Journey (who is awesome btw), I decided to try something a little different:  a comment contest!

For the month of July, I'll keep track of all comments made during July, and the reader with the most comments wins! Will also pick a few random commenters who can choose something from my prize page.

Valid comments only please, so short generic comments like "thanks" and "great mailbox" will not be counted. I'm looking for actual comments, somehow relevant to the post in question. That's it. No need to follow or tweet or like, just comment.

The BEA prize will only be available to a US mailing address as I'm paying for shipping and am on a limited budget, but if the Top Commenter is international, we'll work something out. The random commenter's prize will be open to everyone.

What can you win? Glad you asked! I'm offering the following BEA goodies:

Autographed (unread) copy of Jennifer Lynn Barnes Trial by Fire

Shirt & chapter sampler of Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare.
The shirt is a lightweight Hanes t-shirt, 100% cotton, size large.

Unread ARC of Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

Cool Workman Publishing tote

Additional random BEA swag, such as bookmarks and buttons and pens and such....

Looking forward to seeing how this turns out!

The small print:
*Main prize available to US mailing addresses only (alternate prize TBA later if winner is international)
*Random commenter prize open internationally
*Valid comments will be tracked from Friday, July 1st, 2011 through Sunday, July 31st, 2011, 11:59PM EST
* The main prize will be awarded to the reader submitting the most comments
*The additional winning names will be picked using a random number generator
*The winners will be announced no later than Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011, and will have 48 hours to respond with their mailing address. Should they fail to respond in the given time frame, new winner(s) will be chosen.

    We miss you over at Cat Thursday (or I do). =O( I know you lost your darling kitty and it has been hard, I'm sure. Did you know I did a tribute post to you and author C.W. Gortner, who lost his cat around the same time you did? I'm pretty sure it was the Cat Thursday the week of your post about losing Didi.
