Giveaway! Hoot by Carl Hiaasen


THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED.


My first giveaway!


Summer is almost here, and I can't wait! So, to welcome summer (plus I am in a great mood today) I decided to have a giveaway. As some of you may have read in my previous post, I am cleaning out my bookshelves and passing on books to new homes :) So the book that you will win is...HOOT by Carl Hiaasen! I read this book a few years ago and I just loved it. (They've also made it into a movie recently, but you should read the book if you haven't already!) You can read about the book here. My copy of the book is a hardcover, with 292 pages. It is very gently used and looks almost brand new.

Giveaway Rules:
1.) This contest is only open to residents of the U.S. (Sorry, but my wallet is practically empty!)
2.) You must include your email in your comment(s), so that if you win I can notify you and let you know. I'll also post the winners on my blog.
3.) The contest ends June 30 June 15.

How to Enter:
Comment on this blog post leaving your email address and saying you want to be entered.

Multiple Entries:
+1 Becoming a follower/Already a follower.
+1 Posting this contest on your sidebar (leave a link or url).
+1 Blog about this contest (leave a link or url.)
+1 Answer this question: Why do you like summer?

So...you can have a total of 5 entries! (The 4 above are optional, but give you a higher chance of winning.) Oh and you can either put all of your entries in one comment or in separate ones, it doesn't matter. I'll be using random.org to find the winner. Please no PO Boxes.

Good luck! :)

  12. I just found your giveaway. I'd love to be entered as I'm a huge Carl Hiaasen fan but have not read this one. The thing I love about summer is that it's not winter. I don't like to be cold and even indoors in summer will have socks on. In the winter I am even worse. jessica(at)fan(dot)com

  19. What I love about summer -- the fact that I can stay up later, that I don't have to wear five layers of clothing just to walk out the door and that I can do fun things with the kids like play in the pool or the sprinkler, go on hikes, hunt for bugs, etc. I love summer!

  20. The only Hiaasen I've read was Skinny Dip but I loved it enough that I really want to try this. Plus, I'm kind of on a "mission" to read all the Newbery Honors.

    I like summer because I adore wearing flip flops. If it was warm enough, I'd wear them year round!
