  8. You're already on my blogroll and Google Reader - does that count? milou2ster(at)gmail(dot)com

  9. *darbyscloset: As far as I know you'd have to have a blog and select one of the choices when you click the subscribe button in my sidebar. I am technically illiterate and have to assume other know how to do these things.
    OR...if you read one of my past reviews and make a relevent comment on it you get an entry too.
    Or... you can email four friends who might be interested and get an entry that way since you don't have a blog.
    It's an either/or thing.
    *bermudaonion: Of course it counts, you're one of my favourite regulars.:)

  10. I already have you in my Google Reader, and I'd love to be included in the giveaway. I've been looking forward to this book for a while. I liked A Cloister Walk an awful lot, and Amazing Grace was one of those life-changing books.
