Where did I get this idea? On a rare Sunday where I managed to drag my overworked liberal arts butt off my bubble of a campus, my friend and I went into Philly: Chinatown, the Philadelphia Museum of Art... and the lovely 3-story Barnes & Noble. Seriously, my head swam with all the gorgeous covers of the new releases that were on display in the YA section.
Here's how the contest works: the winner (there will either be one or two, I have decided yet, depends on the number of entries) will receive any YA book that's being released in February! Check out the awesome www.yalit.com for a rather complete list of all the releases. Me, I'm looking forward especially to reading:
Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (Feb. 1)
Evermore by Alyson Noel (Feb. 3)
Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith (Feb. 10)
Fade by Lisa McMann (Feb. 10)
Raven by Allison van Diepen (Feb. 10)
And those are only a few; there are literally DOZENS that you can choose from!
So how can you enter and receive entries? Just answer the question:
Which February release book do you most want to read and why?
and leave the name of the book you would like to win (this does not have to be the same book as the answer for the question above, although it can be). Your book choice can be any book that's being released in the month of February.
+1 for leaving a comment here
+1 for following me (+2 if you've already been following me!)
+2 if you blog about this somewhere and show me the link (sidebars are okay)
+3 for something you can find out about within the next week or so! Don't forget to check back soon!
This contest will run through February 12, 2009. And it will be open worldwide cuz I know how hard it is for people living outside of North America to access many books. Yay for contest! I'm having fun already. I hope there are lots of participants. Hmm... maybe I'll make this a monthly thing...?
Good luck! :D
