The Giveaway of Giving!



Yup. You read that right. It's GIVEAWAY TIME! I know you might be thinking, but Juli, you already have a giveaway of NIGHTINGALE going on right now... Yup, you're right. (Pssst, there's still time to enter!).

So why am I having this giveaway, you ask? Well, because not only is today (1/13) my 6-month Blogoversary (It couldn't have been that long. No. Way.), but I've also past 50 followers* on the blog and 100 followers on Twitter (well, 99 now, but I had 102 in the morning...). Anyway, never mind my rambling. Let's get straight to the good stuff, 'cause this calls for a celebration!

As some of you may know, I went to the RT BookLovers Convention last April and met one of my favorite people of all time, Jeri Smith-Ready. The Convention was so amazing that I'll be going to it again this year. Lucky me, it lands right smack in the middle of Spring Break, so I can go to Chicago and not miss any classes! Yay!

Why am I telling you this, you ask? Because this giveaway is kind of weird. There's two possible things you could win.

Thing #1:

YOUR choice of ANY book under $20.00. It can be international, provided that The Book Depository ships to your country (also, if you have an e-reader, it has to be permitted by law).

Thing #2:

Go check out this list of authors on the RT BookLovers Convention Teen Day page. Do you see ONE author you particularly would love a signed (or personalized) book from? Do you? Well, if you do, and you don't mind waiting until APRIL, you can tell me the author and the book you'd like signed, and I'll buy you one there (must be under $20.00) and get it signed by the author (personalized, too, if you'd like). Now, if you choose this option, you have to live in the U.S. or Canada unless you are willing to pay for the international shipping yourself (sorry, peeps, but I'm broke). Also, if something happens and the author you chose can't make it, I can't take any responsibilities for that, though I will be very very sorry. So, if you do choose this option, do keep some back-up authors in mind! (I'm sure you'll find plenty. After all, the list comprises of people like Veronica Roth, Cynthia Hand, Beth Revis, etc. Come on now.)

Edited to add: Also, to compensate for the long wait, I'll be including some random SWAG. Signed bookmarks, CDs, postcards, posters, you name it! :D Luck of the draw, peeps, luck of the draw.

And that's it! I hope you like it! You only get one of these two things, so choose carefully! Just fill out the form below to enter. No following, tweeting, and all that necessary, but you'll have a skyrocket more of a chance if you do, so, ya know... if you really want to win...
(click continue reading if you're reading this from the home page to see the giveaway form.)

*I honestly do not mind or care too much about the number of followers I have. As long as I have more than just myself who listen to my ramblings, I'm happy. THANK YOU ALL! :D
