Friday Giveaway: 1000 - Contest Closed

Taken just before I started this post:

Yes, this will be the 1,000th post here on Forgotten Bookmarks. Hard to believe it all started way back in June of 2007 with this bookmark, "Cassie's Coming Back." (Still no comments?) Since then, there have been bookmarks of all kinds, more than 500 books given away (I lost track in 2010 or so), babies, book deals, guest posts on The Wall Street Journal, retweets from William Shatner, Susan Stamberg mispronouncing my name (doesn't tarnish it a bit - IT'S SUSAN STAMBERG), two floods here at the bookshop...

Best of all, there's all of you. I can't tell you how great it's been getting to know you readers. I don't have a lot of friends living locally, you guys have become my best friends. I am delighted to bring you these silly bookmarks and giveaways, and I look forward to 1,000 more posts. Here's what I have for you today:
