Blogoversary Bash!


My blog will be 1 year old in just a few days time! Wednesday, June 9th to be exact!

What better way to celebrate than to give away a crap-ton of books!!!

So, here's what's going on. Basically, starting today - every weekday (aka Monday thru Friday) I will have a new contest up until the end of June. That comes down to 22 contests - which means 22 books (or a few more b/c some days there will be more than one book given away!).

Now, each of these contests will last TWO WEEKS. So, I will be announcing winners throughout the blogoversary, but will send off books at the end (mid-July) - just in case someone wins a few different books..

Now, because of financial issues - these contests will only be for US residents.

BUT, I will also be holding a comment contest. How does a comment contest work you ask?

Basically, for every time you comment on a post (starting with this one) during the month of June, you will get an entry into the comment contest. But, I'm also going to have you fill out a form real quick if you want in. Don't worry I'll be reposting THIS FORM frequently so new people can sign up. Because I will be using Google Forms, I will count any comments on contest posts too.

Now, what are you going to win if you win the comment contest?

I will award one International (non-US) contestant with $30 worth of books from The Book Depository - basically you can get 2-3 books as long as The Book Depository ships to your country.

I will also have one US winner. That winner will win a box of about 20 books (mostly ARCs and paperbacks). What kind of books will be in this box? Well, here is the list:

Vampire’s Assistant (3 bks in one)
The Puzzle Ring
A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder
City of Fire (ARC)
Little Black Lies (ARC)
Lockdown (ARC)
Spellbinder (ARC)
The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z. (signed ARC)
Break (ARC)
The Miracle Girls
Privileged
Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress (signed)
What Would Emma Do?
War Games (ARC)
Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs (ARC)
Maximum Ride Saving the World and other extreme sports (HC)
Before I Fall (ARC)
The Cave (signed)
Beryl: A Pig’s Tale by Jane Simmons (ARC)
In the Path of Falling Objects (ARC)
Hidden Talents

Exciting, huh??? So, fill out THE FORM now if you're interested in winning and then leave a comment below.

Well, I will also be posting the first actual book contest in a minute here as well, so stay tuned!
