Massive Book Give-away!

Edited to add: Since I now have 100 followers, I've decided to give away BOTH prizes. There will be TWO winners: the first name drawn get his/her choice of books; the second name drawn gets the remaining group of books.

I mentioned before how I cleaned out my bookshelves in order to prevent my office from caving in. Now it's time to give away those books!

Since I've got SO many books to give-away, I'm going to split this up into TWO different give aways. I've split the books up so that there's one group that's a bit more YA and more actiony-adventurey, and the other group is a bit more MG and fairy-tale-ish.

The only thing you've got to do?

Pick a set of books you want!

TO ENTER:
Just make a comment to this post telling which of the two sets of books that you'd like the most.
+1 Become a follower of my blog
+2 You were a follower of my blog before the contest (I know who you are)
+1 You refer someone to this blog (and they tell me they got here from you)
+
1 Post a link to this in your blog/website/twitter/facebook/whatever (we'll do one point per post, how about that?)
Please let me know how many points you get in your post, and links to where you link to me, please!


Rules
-Contest ends May 16
-I'm only shipping in the continental US (sorry, but I'm poor!)
-I'm giving one set of books away this round--whoever wins the drawing wins the book selection of their choice. I'll give away the second set of books some other time.
-FYI: These books were all read once (by me) but I take very good care of my books, and you probably won't even notice the wear. Just wanted some full disclosure here.



GROUP ONE: FAERIE-ISH (Plus American History)
Books in this group: The Faerie Path byFrewin Jones, The Tail of Emily Windsnap and Emily Windsnap and the Monster from the Deep by Liz Kessler, Peril at King's Creek (An American Girl Felicty Mystery), Gossamer by Lois Lowry, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
































GROUP TWO: ADVENTUREY! (Plus Graduation)
Books Included: Genius Squad by Catherine Jinks (hardback), The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor (hardback), Nobody's Princess by Esther Friesner, The Graduation of Jake Moon by Barbara Park, The Bar Code Tattoo and The Bar Code Rebellion by Suzanne Weyn

Yup, +2 for following! And I figured you'd want Group 2 ;)

Anonymous said...

Group ONE Group ONE Group ONE - I MUST own a copy of Book of a Thousand Days. MUST MUST MUST. (Yikes. But I also want Looking Glass Wars. Well, give group one to PJ and group two to me, and, voila, contest over!!)

I was a follower before, which is +2; I'm commenting, +1 - gonna go post but don't count that yet - and I'm pretty sure the chicken virus is ZOMBIE CHICKEN award!!!

I will choose Group 2. The book by Beddor is about Alice in Wonderland, or something like that. I could enjoy that. Then I never finished reading the Barcode Tattoo, because school was ending. It had a very unique concept.

+2 for being a previous follower
+1 for tweeting about it this very day (@sam_elliott)
+1 for having my latest tweet on my blog, which also means it's linked on my blog! (http://samantha-elliott.blogspot.com)

Okay, I'll understand if you don't let that last one slide. ;)

Either group would be cool by mean. If I win, you can let the other winner's choice decide. Or, if you're going to pick one winner from each group....um, add me to the group with less people to even them out?

Cool idea!
