Book give-aways

My mother works at a hotel and there was a convention for authors, publishers and distributors. My mother worked the banquet for it that night. The following night my mom was doing her usual Room Service job and after delivering an order to a distributor she wound up with some books! The lady said she had no space for them in her bags so she was giving them away.

Each book is signed by the author. --ok so MOST books are signed as I am finding out-- I am willing to give them away. Free. I don't want a single penny. The only thing I ask, is that you pay postage. I work at Mcdonalds and my child's deadbeat father refuses to pay any child support so I am a little strapped.

The books are as follows:

Eating Dirt by Charlotte Gill
Smells like Treasure by Suzanne Selfors
The Invisible Girls by Sarah Thebarge
Our Sarah Made in Alaska by Chuck Heath Sr. and Jr. *UNSIGNED* (I have a feeling I am going to have to beg for people to take this one.... Sarah Palin is kind of nuts IMO)
Goodbye for Now by Laurie Frankel
Liberty's Christmas by Randall Platt
Where Lilacs Still Bloom by Jane Kirkpatrick

First come first serve :)

It's official.

I am declaring the rest of the month, Fabulous Fantasy Book February. I invite you to post one or two fantasy/scifi/steampunk/speculative fic books in a comment to this entry that you would like to swap. Let's see how many trades we can manage for the rest of February.

I'll start us off.

"A Companion to Wolves", Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette. Mass market paperback, good condition with a little bit of wear (from riding around in my book bag). Great world building with an interesting look at gender roles in an all-male community.

Any takers?


Happy Valentine's Day!

Surprisingly, we only had three people enter the Love Is In the Air Book Giveaway. That's right, only three.




So I'm going to pull an Oprah and declare all three of you winners. Give me a few days to buy the books, and, hopefully, I'll mail them out this coming weekend. To keep it secure, send me your mailing addy by LJ message. Don't post it in a comment.


At this time of year, everyone is in love with the idea of love, so the next raffle is a salute to romance. If you would like to enter the Love Is In The Air Book Giveaway, please post a comment giving the first name only of the man/woman who is/was the great love of your life and the name of a book (extra points if it has "love" in the title) that you would like to receive. If possible, pick a paperback, because those are cheaper for your mod to ship. :-)

A winner will be selected on February 14, St. Valentine's Day.

Positive Review

I just received Moon Called by Patricia Briggs today from phantomminuet . Shipping was so quick I didn’t even expect it today and actually handed the package containing it to my boyfriend thinking it was his overdue b-day gift lol. Book was in the condition described and even contained a nice note. Thank you! Your book is on its way and I hope you receive it shortly! I cannot wait to start reading mine ^.^

Hey, all.

I'll try to keep an eagle eye out for it, but if you should spot a post from one of those Russian porn bots on the community, just send me a heads up via LJ message, and I'll take care of it.


Out with the old, in with the new.

And here are the first book raffle winners of the new year! phenomenal and russian_mafia_x are the winners in the **Winter**Holiday**Extravaganza***. I believe that I still have russian_mafia_x's mailing addy from a previous giveway (unless it has changed), but I will need yours, phenomenal. Just send it to me in a LJ message.

And give me a couple or three days to get the books.

Books to swap!

So I hope I am doing the right, this is my first post here.

Getting rid of a bunch of books I have never read or do not see myself reading ever again to make room for new books on my shelf. A fair few of them I received as door prizes at different events at local book stores but never really had any interest in reading. If you are interested in any of the below books a trade is not necessary because if I cannot give them away here I will give them to a local charity. However if you would like to trade a list of some of the books I am looking for can be found under the cut.
