Q: Christmas in July! Someone gives you a gift card for two books (whatever that costs). What two books will you buy?

 Geez. I was hoping it would be an easy question today... no such luck. Well, there are some books that I would love to add to my book collection. I would probably get a nice hardback version of Bitterblue, by Cashore, which probably was my favorite read of the year. I would also like to utilize the fact that I can spend whatever I want for these books, so would love to get a first edition of something-- like a really old copy of Shakespeare's plays or Lord of the Rings trilogy. :-)
And now the moment you have all been waiting for: the Winners of our great giveaway of Shawn's book The Intern's Tale and Insurgent by Veronica Roth!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats! I've emailed the winners, but if they don't respond within 48 hours, I will select another winner! Have a great Friday, everyone! Don't forget to tune in on Monday for an interview with Lisa Burstein and a giveaway of signed bookmarks and bracelets!  


  1. Not big on classics but love LOTR. I haven't read Bitterblue yet but enjoyed the first two books.

  13. Gah! I didn't even think of getting books I'd already read, ya know? I'd like a nice first edition of Jane Austen, Shakespeare... maybe a super fancy collection of Homer's works. Dang. I wish I'd thought of that.
