September + October = Book Giveaway Month

September is right around the corner; do you know what that means?

2009 NATIONAL BOOK FESTIVAL

Where: Washington, DC; on the National Mall

When: September 26, 2009

What's so exciting about this Festival?

Well, not only are we celebrating the joy of literature and the way books have impacted our society. We're celebrating how much reading has again become a great love of ours in this millennium.

It's also a chance for everyone of all ages to meet their favorite authors (last year I was this close to meeting both Neil Gaiman and R.L. Stine two of my favorite authors). Authors such as:

Richard Peck
R.L. Stine
Neil Gaiman
Holly Black
Walter Dean Meyers
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Meg Cabot
Stephenie Meyers
Sharon Draper
James Patterson

Have attended the celebrations in the past.

This is the 9th annual celebration. The 4th year I've known about it; and the 2nd year I'll be attending.

This is a big deal and I want to share it with you.
  • So until say the 15th of September I'd really like it (if you're interested) to check out the list of authors and post whose autographed book you'd like.
  • The author/authors with the most votes will be the ones I'll be approaching for autpgraphed books.
  • I believe you can only take a maximum of 2 to 4 books to an author, depending on their popularity.
  • I can't get autographed copies for everyone so there will be random drawings based on your choice author and their books.
For example:

Author A and B are your choices.

Author A's fans asked for books 1, 2, and 3.

10 asked for book 1. 5 asked for book 3. and 20 asked for book 2.

That means 10 people will be in the drawing for book1. 5 for book 3 and 20 for book 2.

As for Author B. 50 people asked for his/her bestselling book, book 4.

Since this is the only book requested, I'll secure the maximum amount whether it's 2 or 4.

Out of those 50 2 or 4 people will be in the running for book 4.
  • You do not have to limit yourself to just one author or book.
This is my second giveway but my first really big one. So I'm really happy right now.
  • To qualify for the drawing post your:
Name
E-mail
Choice Author(s)
Choice Book(s)

on this and/or future posts predating September 15th 2009.
