Free Book Giveaway

I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that Laura is donating a copy of Red Glass to be given away. Red Glass has garnered recognition galore, including being the Americas Award and the International Reading Association Young Adult Fiction Award winner; getting starred reviews on Publishers' Weekly, ALA Booklist, and School Library Journal; and being on numerous reading lists, Oprah's included. This is a must read, for young adults and adults who have young people in their lives, or anyone who loves to read.

Since this is the first time I'm doing a book-giveaway, I'm experimenting with how to do it. This is what I've come up with. To win the copy,
  • Leave a link to your website/blog or your name in the comment section between now and next Thursday, midnight, Mountain Daylight Time.
  • If you refer someone, your name gets put into the hat twice. If you refer two people, three times etc., no limits. The person whom you referred has to put your name in their entries.
  • I need to have at least 28 eligible entries to do this giveaway. Why 28? It's the first number that popped into my head, and in Cantonese, it sounds like "easy to prosper" and I reckon everyone would like that.
  • I will announce the winner next Friday.
