MAY I tell you about… A Giveaway?!

Okay, technically I’m supposed to be telling you something about myself today, so… I’m all moved in to my new house in California, and what a relief it is to have my life back! I’m so over living out of a suitcase and constantly eating at restaurants and sifting through boxes to find random things like coffee mugs. I don’t want to think about moving ever again. Well, at least not until eighteen months from now when the Army ships us somewhere new all over again…


To celebrate my return to normalcy, I think a giveaway is in order.

May I present the… Reading is Sexy Giveaway!

FIVE winners will be chosen randomly to receive ONE of the following:

A SIGNED copy of The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour…

A copy of Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins…

Picked these gems up for a future giveaway. :) #books #yalit #reading #sexy
Or, a totally awesome Reading is Sexy bumper sticker!

    Reading is fantastic! I’ve followed your blog via Google Reader for a long time (does that count, I am making the executive decision that it does :)), old Twitter follower, and Tweeted about giveaway. So six? Or like 4.5, if Google Reader doesn’t count…

    Thanks for the giveaway! Glad you all are getting settled into the new house!

    Reading is a vacation! At least when things IRL get crazy for me, I use books to catch my breath.
    Congrats on a successful move!

  3. Jaime Morrow says:

    Reading is a much-welcome escape from the ordinary. I follow your blog, as well as your Twitter feed, and I tweeted about the giveaway. I think that’s 6 entries. Great contest, Katy! Happy to hear that you’re all moved in too 🙂

    Reading is the best thing in the world; heart-breaking, heart-mending, all the emotions from within me spill out when I read.

  6. Jillian says:

    Reading is enlightening escapism… and even better when the books come free! 😀
    I follow you here and on Twitter (@JillianGSchmidt), so with this comment I have 4 points. Thanks!

    I already have both of those books, but I WANT THOSE BUMPER STICKERS!!! Great giveaway! I would most definitely complete my blank with SEXY, but I could also say Reading is titillating. Or if that’s too, er…much, I’ll go with Reading is ENCHANTING. 🙂

    Also, I tweeted. And I’m an old subscriber and follower.

    Reading is my own personal brand of heroin 😉
    I’m an “old” follower & I follow you on Twitter (JeskuhBS).
    4 total for me!

  9. Kat says:

    Reading is escaping from the humdrum of life.

    Let’s see…that’d be +1 for commenting and +1 for becoming a subscriber. (Sorry didn’t do it before. :-\)

    Thanks for the giveaway!
