A Moving Discovery: Armchair BEA Giveaway!

Welcome, welcome!  So, as you may know by now (if you checked out my intro post yesterday) we just moved to Arizona and let me tell you, moving with books is awesome!  We had some folks help us pack up the truck and then unpack it when we got here and they all commented on how many boxes of books they hauled in and out.  I told them it was one of the hazards of helping a librarian move.  :)

One of the other "hazards" is discovering books you forgot you had.  Just before we left, I found my ARC of Across the Universe that I had Beth Revis sign when she came to SLC for the Breathless Reads tour.  Want to see who she signed it to?  Of course you do.

Ok, so you may need me to interpret.  It's to "a book lover."  That's where you come in.  

Must be 13 to enter.
US addresses only.
Fill out the form to enter.
Giveaway ends this Saturday, May 28th.  

Oh, and there just might be some other little things I got signed from that event.  For another winner.  :)  I'd still love to hear about some of your favorite reads of 2011 in the comments!  [Edited to add: ok, here are a few of my favorite books so far this year: Red Glove by Holly Black, Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi, Divergent by Veronica Roth.  As for what I'm looking forward to: Crossed by Ally Condie, The Death Cure by James Dashner, and Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.]

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Oooh, I've been meaning to read this one! Thanks for the giveaway. Isn't it fun to come across things you'd forgotten you had when moving? Better that than things disappearing...

    My favorite book of 2011 so far is The Bee-Loud Glade by Steve Himmer!

  2. Oh! And I already went and bought it! I probably wouldn't have one any way. I've got bad luck like that! And. yeah, moving with books is so much "fun". Worth it, though, totally worth it!

  3. Won. Sheesh, I need more sleep!

  4. I just put this book on hold at my digital library for the audio version.

    Girl Who Reads

  5. Oh my! Thank you so much for this giveaway. I've been wanting this book so bad!

  6. Wow! THanks for hosting this giveaway! This has been on my want list for quite a while. Some of my favorite reads this year have been Anna and the French Kiss, Delirium, and DIE FOR ME. ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte

  7. That would be a lovely one to win! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  8. I really loved reading The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver and Nightshade By Andrea Cremer... I just fell in love with them and they both have a kick-butt girl heroine =)
