Thanks to everyone who participated. This was the final birthday week giveaway.
Today, to celebrate the blog’s 10th anniversary, we’re giving away four autographed copies of the cheap wine book. This is the final giveaway for Birthday Week.
Complete contest rules are here. Pick a number between 1 and 1,000 and leave it in the comment section of this post. You can’t pick a number someone else has picked, and you need to leave your guess in the comments section of this post — no email entries or entries on other posts. Unless the number is in the comments section of this post, the entry won’t count.
If you get the blog via email or RSS, you need to go to this exact post on the website to enter (click the link to get there). At about 5 p.m. central today, I’ll go to random.org and generate the winning number. The person whose entry is closest to that number gets the books.
