ALA Swag Giveaway

Hey, it's my first giveaway!

I made the rounds at the ALA exhibit hall last month and picked up plenty of advanced reading copies. So I'm sharing the bounty. I'll be choosing not one, but THREE lucky people to choose a book.

I'm keeping the rules simple. Contests that give X amount of points for tweeting or following or liking and then expect you to keep track of how many points you have end up hurting my head. So just leave a comment below with your email address and your top pick, plus a back-up pick, out of the seven choices.

That's it.

(If you still want to tweet or follow or whatnot, then you are made of awesome.)

You have until 11:59 pm PST on August 18, 2012 to enter. The three winners will be chosen using Random.org. Please make sure to leave an e-mail address with your comment. Sorry, but U.S. entries only.

Up for grabs are:
Good luck!

  4. Great blog, Monica! I look forward to reading some of your reviews. Re: the ARCs, no need to enter me in the contest, as I'm too swamped to add more to my reading list (or my sagging bookshelves) right now. The Maggie Stiefvater is sure to be great, and I'll get around to reading it eventually!

  5. Love that you're keeping this simple! And what great books to choose from!

    I guess my first choice would be CHOKE, second RELUCTANT JOURNAL OF HENRY K. LARSEN and third would be MY SISTER LIVES ON THE MANTLEPIECE.

    Win or lose - these are books I'll check out for sure.
