Make Me A Button Giveaway!

So, my blogiversary, which was July 3, 2009, came and went, and I didn't make a fuss about it. I was going to have a giveaway, but I realized that, while I started my blog in July, I didn't really star BLOGGING, per say, until August 29, 2009. So I thought it would be more fun to celebrate then.
So be looking out for a big giveaway at the end of August (and if you've got any suggestions about what should be given away, don't hesitate to let me know).

In the meantime, though, I've been itching for a reason for a giveaway, and I need a button for my newish feature, Nihon no Kinyoubi (aka Japanese Friday). And soooo, welcome to my

Make Me A Button Giveaway!


Guidelines:

1)I'm looking for something fun and funky, hardore yet cute, to match my blog theme.

2)The button should say Nihon no Kinyoubi somewhere on it.

3)Once the button is made, e-mail it to me at zedster.tbb(at)gmail(dot)com

4)And that's it really - have fun and remember what the button is for!


Once the contest is over, I'll ask my readers to vote (and hopefully they will!), and then we'll pick a winner! There will be two winners - the one who makes the button I use and the one who gets the most votes (in the event that they are the same, second place will go to those with the second highest number of votes)

Now for the exciting part: THE PRIZES! Since it's for a Japanese feature, the winners will get to pick one of the following Japanese-themed books of their choice:


Option 1: The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami - my favorite book by my favorite Japanese author!



Option 2: A Pale View of the Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro - another fabulous book by a fabulous Japanese author!



Option 3:Battle Royale by Koushun Takami - fabulous Japanese dystopian fiction! If you loved the Hunger games, you will love this!



Option 4: Real World by Natsuo Kirino - absolutely amazing Japanese horror!


So, since the books will be coming from the Book Depository (most likely!), it's open internationally! And I will keep it open for two weeks - so until August 8.

Summary:
1)Make me a button for Nihon no Kinyoubi
2)mail it to me at zedster.tbb(at)gmail(dot)com
3)pick the book you want to win
4)OPEN INTERNATIONALLY
5)closes August 8

Good idea! My mum might want an iPhone now! Hopefully Apple will come to an alternative to keep these tracking type apps turned on in the background..

Hopefully iPhone will come to the party with these tracking applications and allow them to run concurrently with other apps! Hope I get to play with this one.
