Box of Books Birthday Bash Giveaway!!!!!

November 5, 2009 Uncategorized 81

Hello all my fun followers! As promised, to help me celebrate my birthday, I am hosting a contest for everyone!!
You might ask yourself that I am funny to give something away for my birthday! Well, Mama always taught me it is better to give than to receive. She also told me Karma can be a bitch so always do good for it to happen in return. So I am going to spread good Karma and give at the same time!!!

Below you will see some books in a box. Some are used and some are new. That is what we are starting with! Yes, note I said starting with! When I hit 150 followers I will add 2 more books! When I hit 200 followers I will add another 2 books. Do you see a pattern here?! So we need to spread the word to add more books! Also, if I am having a good day here and there, I might be sneaky and post on here that I added a new book just for fun! SURPRISE! LOL…Hey it’s my birthday and I will do what I want. Just kidding. But keep an eye out for surprise posts about sneaky books that drop in the box!

UPDATE #1 : The bookmark collection was feeling left out, so they jumped in an envelope and hopped in the box already!

UPDATE #2 : Since I am a huge fan of author Lynsay Sands, I decided to share a book from her Argeneau series. I am including a NEW copy of Love Bites. This book decided to hop in for the contest too!

UPDATE # 3 : We reached 150 followers! I have added the following–

The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz
Playing House by Fredrica Wagman

UPDATE # 4 : I am adding the following book to the box!
The Long Walk by Stephen King

UPDATE # 5 : I think today we will do a vampire themed add.
I will add the following books today:

Thirsty by M.T. Anderson

Real Vampires, Night Stalkers, and Creatures From The Darkside
by Brad Steiger

UPDATE # 6 : I made it to 200 followers! I am adding the following now–
Highland Thirst (NEW)
Playing with Fire (USED/original cover art)
Stray (USED)

The books to start with are:

Demon’s Kiss by Maggie Shayne (used)
Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian (used)
Dead Sexy by Amanda Ashley (used)
Water Witch by Deborah LeBlanc (used)
Mind Game by Christine Feehan (used)
Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell (new)

    Hi Amy,

    You know I love My Overstuffed Bookshelf! I had you linked to Keta’s Keep for some time now and I thought I was also following your blog. Oh, such is the mind of a writer! I’m following you now, and I’d love to win a book.

    ps: I already won one book from Amy and I’m very appreciative. But . . . I’d love to win another.

    You rock, Amy!

    Best, Keta Diablo
