I love receiving free books, and I’ll bet you do, too. So when I stumbled on Kelly Herold’s teen/children’s book giveaway at her blog, Big A, Little A, I was delighted. And I want to add to the fun!
This book exchange idea came from a blog called overwhelmedwithjoy, and was brought into the kidlitosphere by Cloudscome (A Wrung Sponge). I’m using Kelly Herold’s slightly modified rules to fit with kidlitosphere, with my own modified rule #2, and modified #3 from overwhelmedwithjoy.
In September, I will be giving away a new copy of teen fantasy elseWHERE by Will Shetterly (“Where magic meets the mean streets.”) Summary: Ron, a teenage runaway, comes of age among the punk elves and humans of Bordertown, a run-down city on the border between the real world and the magic world of Faerie.
(Please note: There are a few corners on the bottom of the book turned up, but if you don’t mind that, please enter.)
1) Once a month I’ll pick a book (or two) to give away to one (or two) lucky reader(s) (you don’t have to have a blog to enter). It may be a book that I’ve purchased new or used, or it may be an ARC or a review copy of a book I’ve recently reviewed. (If you receive an ARC from me, please don’t sell it online after you’ve read it.)
2) How to enter:
Leave a comment on this post with your name (and/or anything else you want to say). In September, the winner will be randomly selected by using the Random Integer Generator. lf you’re the winner, I’ll contact you, and you can email me the address you want the book shipped to. Open to anyone in any country. Giveaway closes Sept 12, so please enter before then.
3) If you’re the lucky winner of the book giveaway, I ask that you consider donating a book of your choice (new or used) to your local library or shelter after you’re done with it, or to host your own Book Pay-It-Forward on your site or blog.
4) If you’re really motivated and want to host your own “Pay It Forward” giveaway at any time, feel free to grab the button above to use on your own blog. Just let her know so she can publish a post plugging your giveaway and directing readers your way!
That’s it! Have fun. 🙂 I’ll be holding the drawing on September 13 or thereabouts.
