I know it sounded like I said I'd post the giveaway photos on Wednesday but what I really meant to say was Thursday. The misunderstanding is understandable.


Here's the Deal:


Three GIVEAWAYS, three BOOKS EACH + one t-shirt per GIVEAWAY.


The butt kickin' t-shirt every prize package gets:







George Orwell – Animal Farm

John Steinbeck – Of Mice and Men

John Irving – A Prayer for Owen Meany


Prize Package # 2:



John Steinbeck – Of Mice and Men

John Irving – A Prayer for Owen Meany

James Joyce – Dubliners


Prize Package #3:




James Joyce – Dubliners

Kurt Vonnegut – Slaughterhouse-Five

Ken Kesey – One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Next


How You Win:


Comment. Comment once and you're in for all the drawings. Specify you want only a certain GIVEAWAY PACKAGE and I'll enter you only in that, though it's a bit silly, when you could triple your chances.

However, you cannot win more than one GIVEAWAY PACKAGE. Once your name is drawn you're taken out of the running for the other two.

The contest runs from now through Sunday, October 2 at midnight Central Standard Time (Chicago).


Oh, and caveat, U.S. addresses only. So sorry about that! But I blew my budget on the books and t-shirts. It's not that I don't love you, world!

Hug kiss.







Lisa’s Grand Banned Books Giveaway

The good thing about writing your own blog is you have sole creative (shut it) control and answer to no one. The bad thing is when life intervenes there's no one to point at and say, "YOU TAKE OVER FOR A WHILE!"

And of course this would have to happen during BANNED BOOKS WEEK, when I'd hoped to do so much.


So here's what I'm gonna did. I'm trying to get a few things accomplished today, of the around the house variety, so there's not much room for bloggery. However, since it is BANNED BOOKS WEEK I am going to work up three PRIZE PACKAGES, photograph them, and hope, HOPE to post those tomorrow.

Each package will consist of one of these t-shirts (Eat Sleep Read, the sale of which benefits the Illinois Library Association):




…and a small pile of books. Because what would a PRIZE PACKAGE mean without books?

You may enter to win one or all three packages but you can only win ONCE.


This is my humble contribution to the BANNED BOOKS WEEK observation. I had hoped to do more, but well, you know… I didn't.

'til tomorrow…
