Win on Wednesday: Some contests from around the book blogosphere! (2)

Win on Wednesday was started by All Things Urban Fantasy.

I started doing this post last week. I'm really not sure how you all liked it. I didn't get much feedback. So, today I ask that you all let me know if this is something that you would like me to keep doing or not.
For those who haven't noticed before, I try to keep an updated list on my sidebar of several contests and giveaways going on that you can enter, but this is a more complete list than what I have over there.
Also, while this is mostly a paranormal and urban fantasy site, I do also read other things, so I figure a lot of you do too. Not all contests listed will fall under the paranormal category, in fact, some might have absolutely nothing to do with it, but I just figure you all might like to know about any contests and giveaways that I come across. So, there ya go!!
