THE TIME HAS COME SHANKS! One of my favorite all time books, "The Maze Runner".....We have a new, shiny ARC (as you can see in the picture) just waiting to be read by 1 lucky as heck winner! The book comes out on October 6th, 2009 and wouldn't it be cool if you didn't have to wait that long to read it?? Well, we thought that what we would do here is have the contest end on September 6th, exactly 1 month before this book hits the shelves. It will be open to anyone and everyone.
**BY THE WAY, We just want to announce that coming soon will be yet another hot new ARC giveaway by Kristin Cashore of "Fire", the prequel to her best selling hit "Graceling"...keep your eyes open for further details and other books we have to give away. Back to business...the winner will be picked by a site that picks the winner randomly by us entering all of your entries (I still think thats such a cool thing!)
WHEN: Contest ends on Sunday, September 6th, 2009 at exactly 11:59 p.m. EST The winner will be notified by email (so make sure you include your email address) and posted on the site on Monday, September 7th. Heres is what ya gotta do....
HOW TO ENTER: there are a number of ways to gain entries to the contest. Whether you choose to just enter once, or have multiple entries, for this contest, the more entries the better your shot as I have a feeling there will be many entries to compete with....but, it's all up to you...here is how to get your entries:
+1 for posting in the blog (about a great book you recently read or a favorite book of yours as we love suggestions) and leave your email address in the first post please.
+2 for following us (current followers start with +3 with their post)
+1 for linking our site (this contest) to yours (include link)
+1 for posting about our site (this contest) on another site, no max, the more you post, the more chances you have to win! (include links)
+1 for every person that sees your post elsewhere and mentions your name in their post
+2 for going and checking out the review AND interview posts about the other contest I am currently holding for a signed copy of "ALVOR" by Laura Bingham, as well as entering to win her book....in your entry for ALVOR, post the name of Erin's dragon friend so we know you read the posts :O) Trust us, it's definitely worth it, and if you don't trust us, trust Mr. Dashner himself, who posted how much he enjoyed Laura's book ON IT'S BACK COVER! The coolest thing is that the main characters are given a magical brooch that they wear and it can be changed into anything they want it to be! Boy do I wish I had one of those!! Imagine what you could do with that!! If and when the posts hit 200, we will start a second post to continue the contest.
Seems like a lot of work, but it doesn't have to be. You can simply just enter once to win, after all, it only takes a post and a dream! Obviously the more you do, the more of a chance you have to win. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING IN OUR JOYS OF READING!!
