I interrupt the regularly scheduled post to bring you A GIVEAWAY!
Holy cow. I just finished reading Divergent last night. It's the first book I've read in a while that sucked me in so fully that for the last 150 pages or so, I was incapable of getting anything else done. (Seriously. I was sitting at the kitchen table, dying of thirst, and couldn't seem to tear my eyes off the page long enough to walk to the sink.) It was intense. Like HUNGER GAMES intense.
And by a happy twist of fate, I happen to have two copies of the book! One I've read and loved. One I want to give away. You know how, when you open a hardback book for the very first time, it makes that sound? You know the one-- it's a crack! like the sound of words escaping. The book I'm giving away STILL HAS THAT SOUND INTACT. See how selfless I am? It's sitting right here next to me, calling me to open it so I can hear that sound, but I'M NOT. The sound is part of my gift to you if you win.
So, what do you have to do to win? Just leave me a comment saying you want it. That's it! No other steps needed. (Although someday, I'm going to design a giveaway with 50 steps. It'll be epic.) You can spread the word through the usual channels if you feel compelled to do so, but it's definitely not necessary. I just want this baby to go to a nice, loving home.
Ooo! But you get extra credit if you use the words holy frijole!, blue 42, snowplow, kablam, and/or meerkat in your comment. And no, the extra credit doesn't actually earn you anything.
I'll let a random number generator pick the winner at 10:00 pm MST on next Wednesday, November 16th. May luck smile down on you. :)
