I Need Help!

My blogoversary is a little more than a month away, and I want to start planning now. I've been staying with this blog (for the most part) for 2 years now. I've held contests and giveaways before but they were all publisher/author sponsored. For this big event it's all up to me and I need some advice.

What kind of giveaway should I have? For example, a summer theme, or romance.

I'm only in high school so I don't have much cash. How many winners? How many books do I give away?

Should I just have people leave comments for entries, or should I make them work a little?

These questions are directed at everyone, but especially those to book bloggers that have experience.

Any advice?

Well if you're low on cash, it would be wise to stay away from having to pay shipping costs. So, that said, maybe a gift card? The Book Depository, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble are great places to get giftcards for giveaways.

You could also do your favorite books you have read this year and giveaway one of each of those. Say 5? And you could just do the books you can afford. People could have to write what their favorite things about this blog is for entries.
