Summer Book Contest!

Posted 7 June, 2010 by Danny in / 76 Comments

Whenever I’m lucky enough to go to a book signing, I (Pushy) seem to be incapable of NOT picking up an extra signed copy to give away on the blog. This is probably why my husband doesn’t encourage me to go to too many book signings. I do have a mortgage to pay after all….

Anyway, as you may have read, Heather and I went to the Anna Jarzab book signing a couple of weeks ago and so I now have this signed book looking for a good home. And I asked Danny a few days ago how we should go about finding All Unquiet Things a new owner. I had started thinking of this elaborate contest with a mystery theme and blah, blah, blah.

Then Danny mentioned how she’s getting all loaded up for her summer beach reading and there it was.

BING!

We need to have a summer book reading contest!!! We are a book blog after all! So a contest was born.

And what would a contest be without prizes?? No fun at all, that’s what! So here’s what you have a chance to win:


A signed copy of All Unquiet Things


A super, summery clam shell book thong


A necklace inspired by Mockingjay, a super summer read
Necklace found here:


A copy of The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
Lovely sponsored by Felicia from the

(Check her out she’s a super lovely person and has an awesome
Book Blog!!)

And for the mystery element…mystery prizes!

Yes, Heather and I will be attending the Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago this weekend, and we’re confident we’ll be able to find at least one prize worthy of the Bookworms! So whatever else will be given away will remain a mystery until we pick the winners. Fun, no?

So on to the important stuff….how to enter:

    The book I'm most excited about (Matched by Ally Condie) doesn't come out until November, but the other book I'm most excited about & does come out this summer is Discord's Apple by Carrie Vaughn. Can't wait to pick up that book! (And, no, I couldn't resist mentioning Matched… lol).
