City of Ember Giveaway!

Posted June 5, 2009 by Emily in giveaway, Uncategorized / 23 Comments

In the blogging world, giveaways are quite popular. Now, I’m not cool enough (yet) to have a fantastic Advanced Reader Copy to give away, but I think this book will do quite nicely.

This was probably my favorite book I reviewed the first week of blogging. So, I’m offering a paperback copy for you, my fantastic reader(s) to try out for yourself. Here are the rules.
  • Open to US residents only with a street address (No PO boxes)
  • You must be contactable. Either leave your email address in the comments or shoot me an email.

The Book

  • The winner will receive one new paperback copy of the City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

    I would love to win "The City of Ember." I'm now following you. The last book I finished was "Sins of The Father" by Angela Benson. I do love YA books. I have a few on my blog. Thanks for entering me.

  4. I want to win, and I'm a follower, and I comment!

    The last book I finished was Angels and Demons. I didn't like it. Dan Brown just isn't my style. It was about the long war of religion vs science. In the end, we need both. At least it wasn't as full of crap as The Davinci Code.

  5. I would love to win this book, I saw the movie and loved it, but haven't read the book. I'm following you on twitter (riotxjess) and am following you on google, which also makes me follow your RSS feed. 🙂

    findtimetoread(AT)gmail(DOT)com is my email 🙂

  6. I would love to win this book but I already have a copy. I will pass on being in the contest, but I wanted to show my support. 🙂 I already follow you on Twitter, I follow/subscribe to the blog, I'm commenting, I'm putting you on my blogroll on my blog. The last books I read were 'The Story of Edgar Sawtelle' and 'The Necklace'. My contact info: 12 steps, 3 knocks on the ceiling, or one loud holler. 🙂
