November is probably my favorite month because SO many cool and fun things happen. There's Dia de los Muertos, Thanksgiving, the Iron Bowl, Black Friday (if you're into insane shopping crowds -- I am not), National Author's Day, and so on.
As much as I love all these days, there's a particular day, the 9th to be exact, that I just love. If you guessed it's my birthday, you'd be correct!
I have been stocking up on book swag and even have a few signed books to giveaway. My original plan was to hang on to everything to celebrate a year of blogging but I've already waited a few months and I want to give stuff away NOW! You don't mind, do you?
I'm not a huge fan of extra entries and making you jump through hoops to enter my giveaway, but I will be giving extra entries (this time) for old followers and new followers. In case anybody wants to earn an extra "share with the world" point, you can do that by tweeting.
I guess I should tell you what I kind of book swag I have stock piled, huh?
The books I have are Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (Cohn, Levithan)* and The Realm of Possibility (Levithan).
The book swag includes:
Firelight bookmarks, postcards, and stickers courtesy of Sophie Jordan
Mockingbird bookmarks, discussion guide, stickers, and temporary tattoos courtesy Kathryn Erskine
Leaving Gee's Bend bookmark courtesy Irene Latham
The Tension of Opposites bookmark (I got an extra in a contest I won)
Also, if you're name is Crystal you will be entered to win a special signed book surprise by one of my favorite authors!
Ready, Set, ENTER!
*Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist is only signed by David Levithan
