Pick Your Prize Giveaway!

I have a pile of books that I have been thinking about giving away and I just couldn't decide which one should go next...so I'm going to let you decide! (I haven't tried a giveaway like this before, so wish me luck!) Below are the five books you can choose from. Pick a book and leave a comment to enter. To snag an additional chance, link to this contest on your blog, listing all 5 books. If you email five of your friends about the contest and copy me on the email, I'll give you a bonus entry! Here are the books you can choose from:












BONUS! For every 12 entrants, I'll give away another one of these books. That means all I need is is 24 entrants to give away 2 books; if I'm fortunate enough to get 60 entrants, I'll give away all 5! So spread the word and increase your chances to win!

Okay, now the fine print stuff: Entry deadline is Friday, September 26th. One set of entries per person. The contest is open to readers in the US and Canada only. Bonus entries don't count towards the total number of entrants. In case two entrants ask for the same book, the first name drawn gets first choice. Please be sure your comment includes a way to contact you. Good luck!

****9/22/08: We've hit 24 entrants, so that's 2 books! Come on, folks - I want to clear these shelves!

****9/23/08: We've hit 36 entrants! Three books! Do I hear 4???

****9/24/08: 60! Thank you so much for making this my most successful giveaway ever! I cannot wait to pick the winners on Friday!

Just in case you can't read the titles clearly, they are: Abbeville by Jack Fuller, The Good thief by Hannah Tinti, Months and Seasons by Christopher Meeks, The Whiskey Rebels by David Liss, and So Long at the Fair by Christina Schwarz.

Here's the problem with ARCs, it becomes hard to enter people's contests because I already own ALL of those books except Abbeville. So, I guess I'll enter for that one. Thanks for the creative contest.

I was rather dissappointed with The Good Theif. I thought it was going to be one of the best books i've read, but it didn't live up to my expectations. Don't get me wrong, its VERY good and has a great story, but it was just missing something. I have no idea what. It's worth the read though.

Thanks for this contest! Well if i happened to chance upon some luck and won, I'd pick... The Whiskey Rebels by David Liss. Just because so many people picked it, and I like the cover. ha-ha.

good luck to everyone. and i hope you get 60 people!!!
