Contest/Giveaway - I'm still confused.

The housewife diaries is holding a contest. (she called it a contest, but I'm putting it here instead of my special contest page cause I think I'm just going to get rid of the special contest page and post those I enter here) okay with that said, she's holding a contest and the prize is a book called, "Into thin air".

If anyone knows me, they know that I am a huge book person. I read 2-3 books at a time and can finish all of them in a week sometimes. (that is if I don't spend 5 hours reading blogs, like I've done tonight)I also NEVER loan out my books, never. Well, I did once. She borrowed 4 of them, including a hard back one called Illusions, by Richard Bach, given to me by a special lady about 20 years ago. I was very hesitant when she said she would like to read it, almost to the point of telling her to go buy a copy, but being stupid, I let her "borrow" it. I've never seen any of the books she borrowed, again. And I haven't replaced Illusions, because I cannot find it in hardback and I can't remember the names of the other ones she borrowed, so I can't replace those either.. oh and did I tell you that she moved out of town and before she moved I asked her 5 times for the books back. Yeah, she ignored me.

So, I'm entering her contest to win the book and because she says it's an awesome book, I'll probably end up going to Barnes and Nobles and buy it, if I don't win it.

Ah yes, why I so hate it when someone asks to borrow anything. Books seem the worst, people don't hesitate and just keep them with no concern, those bastards.
