Birthday Giveaway

Today (29th August) is my Birthday! I turned 23 today and had a blast. I went bowling with my mates, had chocolate cake (essential party food), shopping and then we went on some trampolines. These trampolines are the little ones that have harnesses on, I've always wanted to go on one and today me and two of my friends did it! It is so much harder than it looks, Considering I do trampolining (on big club/professional trampolines) I thought it would be no problem but it was knackering. We turned some somersaults though which seemed to impress the passing shoppers!

Anyway. I got some awesome presents including a Mickey Mouse London t-shirt, a 'We be Jammin' t-shirt designed by David & Goliath. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows part 1 & 2 game for the wii. (i've wanted these for ages!!!) Disney's Tangled on DVD and a necklace. I also got some spending money. My friend also got me an Alice in Wonderland Craft book called - 'Everything Alice' which rocks!

Shockingly though I didn't get a single reading/story book!!!!!! How on earth did that happen??? It's very unusual.
So because I believe books are the perfect gift and I love giving presents - i'm going to offer you the chance to win a book.

I know we all have different tastes in books so I'm not going to specify a book as a prize, instead I am going to offer $10 / £6 to spend at 'The Book Depository'

This should allow you to choose a book you want!

1) Competition opens Monday 29th August
