Time To Giveaway A Book!

red_square

I’m figuring it’s time for another giveaway! And I want to give away a REALLY good book! So here’s what we’re going to do…I’m stealing an idea from Nymeth sort of :p Last year, she gave away a book to someone who could tell her what her favorite books of the year were! So I’m going to do the same now, because I thought that was fun. The good news is, I’ve only read 25 books so far this year. Mainly, I’m doing this because I think someone else really needs to read The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine! That book is just amazing! So there you go…I gave you one answer :p You just need to come up with a few more now. 4 more to be exact.

Tell me what you think my 5 favorite books of the year have been so far. And yes, one of them is The Latent Powers of Dylan Fontaine, but you still have to include that in your answer :p I’m just hoping that if you write it, you’ll buy it. But what are my other three?? If you can name all 5 of the books, you’ll win any one of the four that you choose! If more than one person gets all 5, we’ll let random.org decide. If no one gets all 5, we’ll go with whoever has the most!

You can find a list of all 25 books that I’ve read by going under “2009 Books Read” under “Books Read” in the header. Good luck to everyone! The deadline for this one will be March 29th…this Sunday.

  4. You’re reading Hey Nostradamus? I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on it! I liked it, but a couple of my other friends are Coupland fans and were not big fans of it.
