It's All in the Numbers Birthday Giveaway! Open Internationally!

Hello Fellow Readers!

I'm thrilled to announce that today is the start of my It's All in the Numbers Birthday Giveaway


My birthday isn't til October 11th, but I want to put this up now so you'll all have plenty of time to enter.



This is going to be a really special birthday for me in terms of the numerology of it.
My 27th birthday is going to be on October 11th. My boyfriend calls this my triple really cubed birthday (little inside joke) since it's my 3^3 power  or last exponential birthday that I'll get to have. I call it my "Charmed" birthday since their motto is "The power of three"

This birthday is also special for me since it's what I call my "sequential" birthday, because of the date. 10/11/12
It looks so cool written out like that! Not many people get to have sequential birthdays, so I'm hoping that this will bring me some good luck for the next year of my life.

Also, if you add the numbers of the date together it adds to 33, which is another multiple of three. And 2+7=9 of course. Pretty neat!

So since this is going to be a special birthday for me, I wanted to do something special for all of my readers  and hold a giveaway for all of you. This Giveaway will be INTERNATIONAL.

What's Up For Grabs:

3 winners will each get 1 book (or more than one book ONLY if you want e-books) of their choice up to 9 dollars USD
So each winner will win a prize of book(s) totalling up to 9 dollars per winner
Up to 9 dollars per winner X 3 winners = 27 dollars = more fun with numbers!

Giveaway Details: PLEASE READ before entering

International readers will have their book shipped to them via The Book Depository (Please make sure The Book Depository ships to your country before entering the giveaway. Check that list HERE)
International readers will only be able to have a book shipped to them via TBD because not all e-books have international distribution rights so I wouldn't want you to end up picking an e-book and not being able to download it because of rights restrictions
US Readers will have their book shipped to them via either The Book Depository or Amazon.com depending on pricing. If you are a reader in the US and you are chosen you will have the choice of having either a physical book valued at up to 9 USD or a combination of e-books totaling no more than 9 dollars If you choose the e-book option the book(s) will be gifted to you via Amazon.com

There is only 1 MANDATORY entry, but it's easy. You must tell me whether or not you are in the US or International. If you don't do this EASY but MANDATORY entry, all of your other entries will not count. All other entries are optional, do as many or as few as you like.
This giveaway will run until 12:01 EST on 10-28-12
Winners will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond to their notification email before another winner is chosen.
You DO NOT have to be a follower of Melissa's Midnight Musings to enter. Anyone who does choose to follow is appreciated. :)

I'll admit it, I'm super jealous that I can't have a sequential birthday! I am terrible about picking favorite anythings . . . birthday, gifts, movie, color, food, you name it. That being said, I have fond memories of my 4th birthday. It's one of my most coherent early memories lol. It was a family party and I remember my older sister dressed me up in a fancy dress and put some makeup on me lol. There are a couple pictures that I have from that party and in one of them my brother is making the most ridiculous face that I burst out laughing every time I see it, so for that reason it is a "favorite".

definitely a car on my sixteenth birthday!

Oooh, that's so cool! I love how all the numbers have worked out. The ancient Celts thought that 3 was a lucky number, and nine was a magic number because it's three threes, so would that make 27 a number of miracles and amazingness? Yes. Yes it would. :-)

Jessica ( frellathon ) said...

Well happy birthday. I can't recall anything that really stands out money I guess. And I already know which book well ebook. Wool the ombibus. I hear it's awesome!

I just posted a giveaway myself come see you may like what I'm giving away

I didn't know that. That makes it even better! And yes, I agree, 27 is the number of miracles and amazingness! :D

Jessica:
Thank you!

Veronika:
Thank you! Huge boxes of books are great birthday presents!

Tayte:
Snuggies are great aren't they? I use mine all the time.

Stina Butcher said...

The best birthday gift I ever got was my first horse. Sure, he's the most crotchety, annoying, pain-in-the-butt animal I've ever met. But he introduced me to riding and I love him!

alexandrasscribblings said...

In terms of presents, one of my random favourite presents ever was from my little brother, then about three or four. He bought me a bunch of fake pink roses. I hate fake flowers, but I love these ones because he saw them and decided I had to have them. Bless!

izz said...

In my family we usually don't celebrate birthday so I don't have any special birthday celebration.

Lexi said...

I got a bird once and it died the next day, so I guess that's not a very good example! My best gift was probably the huge load of Barnes & Noble giftcards I got.

jonababez said...

I got books as birthday presents!
And a DVD of One Direction from my boyfriend!

Happy birthday to you!

Frida said...

My best birthday gift was my system camera, which I totally love and use almost every day. :)

Lesley D said...

My best birthday gift was a book signed and personalized by one of favorite authors, Michael Connelly. Happy birthday!!

Unknown said...

This year will be 12-12-12 for me. Cool,I think. My favorite birthday celebration is my 16th! My cousins gave me the V.C Andrews Flowers in the Attic series. The books had just come out. I loved the gift! We ate Pizza,McDonald's,Sandwiches and Praline and Cream Ice Creme. Birthday cake too. (1977) A fun time!
The Pizza Place is gone now:(

That's cool about the sequential birthday thing. Mine never stood a chance for that to happen. My most memorable birthday was when we had shorts and t-shirt weather and an 'outside' bbq for my birthday (Feb in the upper mid-west) because its usually not weather-conducive to that sort of thing.

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Looks amazing--thanks for doing this giveaway!

Jolene and Family said...

I was living in California and missed my family. The best birthday was when my mom flew in to surprise me. Wasn't expecting her and I had a big surprise when I opened the door and saw her there

Lilian S said...

i have my sequential birthday on 2008, and my birthday present is mom and dad come to my boarding home. I live separately with my parent since 2000 so after 8 years not have my parent when i'm birthday, so it's a memorable birthday present for me

That's okay :)

@Lexi: Barnes and Noble Giftcards are great! I haven't been to a B&N store in a long time.

@Jona: Thank you!

@Frida: See, the type of presents you use all the time are the best kind because it shows how well the person knows you and that they thought a lot about it to make sure it's something you would really like. :)

@Lesley D.: Thank you! Getting a personalized book is so cool!

@Cyndee: 12-12-12 is very cool! Your 16th sounds like it was a lot of fun. :)

@Nurmawati: Thank you! A cat is a sweet gift to get. :)

@Aretha: A necklace is always a nice gift, but even better from someone you love. :)

Olivia: I don't think anything can top a proposal!

@Krista: I've never had a surprise party, I think that would be awesome.

@Cassandra: A 1+6=7 birthday is an AWESOME idea.

@Kayla: That's great, shows just how much she cared to come all that way. :)

@Sarah: Sitting and talking is my kind of party too. :)

@Jolene: That is a wonderful surprise!

@Lillian: That sounds like a nice birthday :)

@Erika: I'm no photographer but I know Canon Rebels are good cameras, so that's awesome!

Since my parents are afraid of getting me things that I might end up disliking, they usually give me money and I get to buy things with it. Usually books. :)

Stephanie Verhaegen said...

Happy birthday! :D

Leonor (Ner) said...

Hey, my bday is on the 12th October, one day after yours, and I too have a giveaway going on to celebrate it. Though I don't turn 27, I'll be turning 24 :) Feel free to check it if you like: http://cupofcoffeeandabook.blogspot.pt/2012/10/24th-birthday-giveaway.html

Okay, my best bday was last year when I turned 23... I went to see my favourite band (Within Temptation) live on that day and it was amazing. My sister and brother-in-law offered me the tickets and went with me... I loved every single bit of the concert since I never went to one of their gigs (or sold out tickets or no money :S).

Yah, that was my best bday :)

I know it normally gives bad luck but, happy birthday ;-)

I don't really remember my birthdays. Lately they have all been non existent or sad. My birthday is in four days time (22nd) so I spoilt myself and bought some books this week. =) Does that count!

I don't know if this is my best birthday or not, but my birthday earlier this month I got to spend an entire day with my husband. No work, just a day of being spoiled (habachi for lunch, steak n shake for dinner) and hanging out with hubby. It was a much neeeded day for me! And, he gave me two books heehee =)
