Free Booksy Book Giveaway

Should I say "Free ARCsy ARC Giveaway" instead?  Seems more honest.

Yesterday I took a redeye from L.A. to NYC, so I wasn’t quite up to dragging my stinking carcass out of the fluffy bed to the computer.  The rules are the same, though.  I have three books.  One is an ARC, one is not.  They are:

Rapunzel’s Revenge by Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, and Nathan Hale (ARC)
Thoreau at Walden by John Porcellino (Hardcover)
Masterpiece by Elise Broach (ARC)

You know the rules.  Send me an email by the end of today (Wednesday) and I’ll pull three winners from the Slightly Cracked Former Cereal Bowl Now Popcorn Bowl of Doom.  Be sure to specify which one you want.  My email can be found by clicking on my name at the beginnning of each post.

  1. I’m sorry, but I’m new to this blog. What are the rules?

    oh fuse # 8 — we love the Thoreau at Walden by John Porcellino book at my house — we can hardly bear to return it to the library. We have wordled so many sentences and taped them up all over the house. Please put our name name in the bowl all by itself and draw for that book…..

  3. Duh, nevermind, I get it.
