My Bookmark Obsession and A Giveaway!

I have an obsession with book swag.

I have so much, it won't fit into one picture. lol 

I started collecting bookmarks about 10 years ago and then a few years ago all the authors started sending out bookmarks and postcards with whatever book I won and I accumulated many, many more than I ever thought I would.

My husband doesn't get why I keep all of these but I love bookmarks.

I have piles upon piles of them. I keep them stored in freezer storage bags so they don't get dusty, dirty or folded. 

I do keep out a few to actually use as bookmarks in my books though.

My favorites are my signed bookmarks, bookplates and post cards though. 

I have many, many signed bookmarks, post cards ect and love getting them.

I'm not sure that authors know how much it means to us readers that they take the time to send along a note or a signed bookmark when we win a book from them. I also have many signed books that I really love. 

Some of the signed bookmarks, postcards and notes I have are from Kate Douglas, Tempest Knight, Deanna Jewel, Cora Zane, Cassandra Curtis, Lori Foster, Ashlyn Chase, Sam Cheever, Heidi Betts, Alison Paige, Kate Walker, Cheryl Dragon, Joey W. Hill, Tilly Greene, Lorelei James, Debbie MaComber, Tawny Webber, Stella Cameron, Susanna Car, Jenna Petersen and many more. 

I lost count after 1000 so I know I have more than that now.

Now for the Giveaway!
Would you like to win a signed bookmark or postcard, plus all the swag you see here from my personal stash?
