I-Needa-Name Contest

Today I have a contest. But you'll have to work for the prize. LOL.

I have many NEW books to give away. And I am giving them away--for a price.

Cue danger music: Ta…Ta…Tum

Some of you may remember that I've talked about starting a new series next year on saving money and overall frugal living, but I have yet to decide on a cool name for it.

Names I've considered:

Frugal Fiend
Thrifty Thursday (which will only work if I do this on Thursdays.)
Cheapskate Central

Those are okay, but I am open to suggestions. Send me YOUR idea for a great name for my new blog series on saving money and the one I like best will win one bodacious boxful of books. International readers, I will ship overseas, but it will come by a three-legged tortoise so if you win, it might take a while to reach you.

Deadline is 1-9-09

Here are the rules:

• Enter as many times as you wish.
• Post a comment with your title idea on any blog post from today until 1-9-09. Be sure to label in caps: ENTRY.
• If there are duplicate winning names, the person who entered it first gets the prize.
• I am the sole judge, so your entry must appeal to my weird sense of humor.

The Prize: A 5-pack of assorted romance, paranormal and crime novels to one single winner.

And here's a bonus prize.

If you are a regular reader of my blog and you send a NEW PERSON over here to enter this contest, tell him to give you credit by adding: Sent by (your name)

If his entry wins, the person who sent him over here also gets a prize.

Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Tell anyone who likes to save money to enter this contest for a chance to win bunches of books.

I will announce the winner on 1-10-09.

Enter early and often. Operators are standing by.

I love your idea. Alas, I've only got one name that comes to mind at the moment. I might think up some more a little later. In the meantime, here's my first
