Celebrate Books & Win a Library of Signed YA Books

I love books. Like, I really love books. And I kind of have a habit of collecting signed books. I like to support YA authors, and I love to support bookstores, so whenever possible, I buy signed books from indie bookstores.

Now, you might remember that at the beginning of the year, I made a resolution to not do any events alone. (Proof of my resolution!) Events are just so much more fun with other authors! So, starting with my very first events in January this year, all the way through the end of September of this year, I've collected signed books of every author I did an event with (plus a few extras that I nabbed at the indie bookstores I visited along the way).

And I'm giving them all away to one lucky winner.

That's write! One lucky winner is going to win an entire library of SIGNED YA BOOKS. That's right:

Every single book in the giveaway is SIGNED.

And when I say library, I mean library--there are nearly FIFTY books up for grabs here!

Wanna see the stash?

First up, you'll get a signed copy of ALL my books in the shiny new covers:


You'll also get a signed copy of all the books of the lovely ladies who were with me for my debut parties in NC, NYC, and CT:




And you're going to get a signed copy of each of the books by the lovely ladies who were with me on the Breathless Reads Tour of Awesome:


And I had the very great fortune to be a part of two wonderful retreats that also did bookstore events, so I nabbed a signed copy of each of their books, too... (Note: The Springsweet is an ARC)



And I got lucky enough to bribe coerce nicely ask people to come visit the lovely Asheville and Malaprops, where I was able to procure signed copies of their books...





And let's not forget Ascendio 2012, the amazingly wonderful Harry Potter conference where I got to meet up with some of my favorite authors and get them to sign their books...


And I was absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour in Edmonton, Canada so I could add a ton more signed books to my carry-on luggage... (Note: Beautiful Creatures is signed by Margie but not Kami.)




This summer, I also traipsed around in Texas where I got a chance to finally meet my longtime friend Tricia and new friend Kari at BookPeople in Austen, as well as get signed copies.

 

And then I just nabbed signed books wherever I could...book festivals, indie bookstores, and anywhere else I could grab more signed books for you! (Note: Dust & Decay is signed, but not Rot & Ruin--but I figured you'd rather have the first and second book, even if only one is signed.)



 And as a last special treat, if the entries for this contest hit 10,000--which I know you guys can do--I'm adding more book to the grouping, After, the dystopian anthology I was able to be a part of--and it's signed by eight of the authors in the antho, including Gregory Maguirre and Ellen Datlow!
Bonus book!
SO! How do you win this plethora of SIGNED YA books?! A prize pack this big would completely alter the size of someone's library and collection of signed books! And I want to give people several chances to win. (And I am terribly sorry, but this giveaway is open only to American addresses. It's already going to be rather expensive to ship fifty books within America. You are, of course, welcome to enter and donate the books to an American library or school, or to coordinate with a friend in America to receive the shipment--as long as I only ship to one American address.)

There are several ways to enter: you can tweet about it, Facebook, etc., but I figured that with a bigger prize, people who do extra deserve extra entries.

The simplest way to earn extra entries is to share the graphic I designed for the contest (and also please share the link to this page, too). To make it easy for you to share this, I've included the html for the graphic here, already linked up :) You can also just save the graphic from this post, if that's easier for you. You get extra entries for putting it in the sidebar of your website, but you can also share it on any social media as well.

Share the Love of YA


But to get the big entries, you need to share the love of YA. It's simple! Make a blog post (or FB note, or whatevs) and let the world know: Why do you love YA? It's November--the month of giving thanks--so let us know why you're thankful for YA. You can write about the genre itself, or about a favorite author, or about a favorite book. It's wide open: just let the world know why you like YA! Also: you absolutely don't have to write about me. This isn't about me--it's about the love of YA. The only requirement is that you also include the above graphic and a link back to the contest.

That's it! Questions? Let me know in the comments here. The contest runs the entire month of November--so spread the word now!

Remember: to enter, you must fill in the Rafflecopter below.

Sarah Negovetich said...

Holy awesomeness. That is one fantastic list of books.

Tine vs. The World said...

This is such and AMAZING contest. Thank you for hosting. So many books in there that I have been wanting to read!

Myrna Foster said...

Wow. Thank you!

Karen said...

Is this open to other countries?

Margaret Alexander said...

Wow, I can't believe you're willing to part with all those books. I'm torn between wanting to enter and the potential of taking something like that from you. But I bet you'll pile up books to replace those soon enough. Thanks for this!

Sallie Mazzur said...

You're ridiculously awesome and amazing! This is like, the giveaway to end all giveaways. Beth Revis, Y U SO FABULOUS!

Kate said...

Thanks soooo much for this Beth! <3

leighmarbella said...

Thanks so much for this! Already joined your contest btw. :)

Holly Letson said...

This is amazing! It would be enough to keep me reading for 3 or 4 months. I would love to have the chance to read this collection of wonderful YA books from so many great authors.

Brooke DelVecchio said...

Amazing, although I can't seem to get the Rafflecopter to work for me :( I will be making a post for this definitely, already started working on it. And I put the giveaway in my side bar already! EEP! So great!

N.E. Williams said...

I'm so giddy with a chance to participate in the only large book giveaway ever. Thank you so much. :)

Beth Revis said...

Karen, I can only ship to a US address--it would literally be hundreds of dollars for me to ship outside the US. If you have a friend or relative inside the US who would accept the package for you and then ship to you, you can still enter, though. You can also choose to donate it to a school or library if you win.

Maragaret Alexander: don't worry! I bought an extra copy of each book for myself. I'm not that generous! :)

Brooke: Did you try the link in the line of text just above the Rafflecopter? I added that in, just in case. I also added the Rafflecopter to my Facebook page, so you can try there. If you're still having trouble, contact Rafflecopter (they have both an email on their website, or @rafflecopter on their Twitter).

Thanks everyone!

Allison Kirk said...

Hey Beth! Thanks for an amazing giveaway!

I was trying to add the image above to my blog post using the html, but the image was showing up as square, that is when I noticed the width and height were both set to 150...I think the width should be 300 and height should be 1290 in order for it to look like the image in your post. It seemed to fix it in my post. Hope this is helpful to anyone else having that problem!

Thanks again!

Is it alright to edit the graphic so it fits into the scheme of our website? Can we also make it smaller so it doesn't mess up the HTMl? (Just small color changes like making it B&W? nothing major!)

Kathleen said...

Holy Cow!! I want to dive into that list of awesome YA and go swimming!! Thank you so much for such an awesome contest... Although, Awesome is synonymous with Beth Revis, so no one should be surprised;-)

jennachristy said...

Whoaaaaa! That's a lot of books! Hooray for you for being ao generous Beth! :)

Cassidy said...

Beth I have to say I think your contests are always full of such awesomesauce.

I was having trouble linking back to your blog (it kept directing to a non existent page on my own) I found if you add http:// right before "bethrevis.blogspot.com" in the code you supplied fixes the problem. Just an FYi if it was happening to others.

Beth Revis said...

Morgan, yes, that's fine!

Thank you, Cassidy!

I think it may have signed me up twice somehow, not sure if it did or not but I filled out most of the rafflecopter yesterday and then I was saving one of the ones to do later which I just wrote the post for it and added the link to it and then it refreshed and showed that everything needed to be done but the post. o.O So sorry if it did!

Lizzy said...

Thanks for the amazing contest! Not sure if I'm the first to notice, but when I click the banner in my sidebar it circles back to my site. I'm not sure if that's a blogger issue, but I fixed it by adding http:// to the beginning of your web address in the code! Not sure if that's something that needs to be done for everyone and wanted to let you know :)

Wow! Thanks for the giveaway! Hope to win!

Terri Kinckner said...

I know I commented before, but I just wanted to tell you that this contest is AMAZING! For a person like me that reads 30+ books a month, this is heaven! I hope I can grow my blog enough one day to be able to have a contest like this, too!

imagine-words said...

This is an AMAZING thing you are doing. What an amazing contest as I really adore the written word more than anything. Words are a reflection into the soul of a person and through books our imagination can sour to such heights through the different writing styles of individuals.
Thank you for this opportunity

Thank you so much. This is awesome! If I win I will donate some to the middle school by my house. The schools in Bridgeport struggle like I've never seen and I want the kids to have nice YA books too.
