Let the 100th Follower Milestone
Celebration Party Begin!
Celebration Party Begin!
As promised last week, I am hosting my very first contest. Also as promised, if we're going to party, we're going to party big! Therefore, I will be giving away twelve - count them, 12 - awesome books.
I will be awarding two - yes, 2 - GRAND PRIZES, from two separate categories. Category one is near and dear to my heart. It focuses on younger MG and lighter YA titles. Category two is a combo of writing and YA books, including two we've seen posted all over the blogosphere lately (Hint: Goldberg & King). Here's the list:
The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg (hardback)
Harry Potter 6 (hardback)
The Goddess of the Night: Daughters of the Moon #1 by Lynne Ewing (hardback)
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
On Writing by Stephen King
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson
Wideacre by Phillipa Gregory
The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
I Explain a Few Things - poetry collection by Pablo Neruda
