I am a life long lover of learning, so it is with great sadness that I pass the back-to-school section on my shopping trips. I want a reason to buy a bunch of Crayola crayons for 25 cents, packs of highlighters for 50 cents, and folders with the cast of “Glee” for a $1.50. But, alas, my days of school, college, and graduate studies are over…unless I go for a doctorate. Though I think my fellow students would frown upon a “Spider-Man” lunch box.
OK, so maybe I’m not going back to school, but there are plenty of lucky kids hitting the books, going off to college, and there’s the rest of us–who have kids going to school (chorus of hallelujahs from parents everywhere) or who, like me, get really psyched by the low cost of pens, paper, highlighters, and other office supplies. Whatever your stage in life, you didn’t stop by for me to blather on about my old school days–you want to enter my giveaway!!!
Sometimes I accidentally [sometimes on purpose] acquire more than one copy of a book, and it seems a bit silly to keep TWO or more copies of the same book lying around, so ONE winner will get his or her choice of ONE of the following books from my “doubles” collection…
(One of my all-time fave books! Used hardcover from a library sale.)
(Another incredible read! Used paperback from a library sale. It even has “Emmaus Public Library” stamps in it! Only the best for my readers.)
(Brand-new paperback. Won one in a giveaway & somehow got two!)
(Brand-new paperback. Won one in a giveaway & somehow got three!)
To enter, all you have to do is…
THE DEETS: The giveaway runs until 11:59 PM EST on September 7. After the winner is confirmed (via email) he or she will be announced on Backseat Writer, Twitter, and via White House Press Conference. This giveaway is ONLY open to residents of planet Earth. Sorry, but the cost of shipping books to Pluto is just getting out of control. (Psst! That means it’s a international party, kids!) I am not responsible for prizes that mysteriously disappear in the postal system.
EXTRA ENTRIES: For TWO extra puntos, tell me the name of ONE (or two or three) book(s) that you were introduced to by a teacher and still count among your favorites! Leave your answer in the “comments” section and make sure you the name you commented with on “THE FORM” or your comment, though very much appreciated, will not count as an extra entry. (Also, if you leave a comment, but don’t actually name a book, then no extra points! It *is* extra, and you don’t *have* to do it.)
For those hosting BACK TO THE BOOKS GIVEAWAY HOP giveaways, give yourself ONE extra punto on “THE FORM” with a link to your giveaway.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of cyberspace!
