Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop

Monday, March 19, 2012 with 1 comment

Okay, guys, so this isn't the easiest thing for me to do, but it needs to be done.  I know my husband is tired of adding shelves in my office, and truth be told, there's not really any room to add any more.  I've expanded as much as I can.  So, if I want to add any more books to my collection, I have to weed some out.  Sad, but true.  Otherwise, every book I read from now on has to be an ebook.  And as much as I love my Nook, I still love the smell of a real book, the feel of turning real pages, and the sense of accomplishment when you shut a book at the end and sigh that final sigh of contentment.  Or, as in some cases, throw the book across the room and scream in frustration.  Either one doesn't work well if you're reading an ebook.

So, I'm clearing off some shelves to make way for more books.  And you guys will reap the benefits.  Not a bad deal, huh?  I debated and debated how to separate the books for this giveaway.  There are nineteen books in this giveaway, afterall:

Do I do three boxes of books, approximately six in each one?  Or, since the majority of what I'm clearing out is vampire-related, do I do a vampire box and an other box?  In the end, I succumbed to my practical mind and decided that shipping two boxes was plenty, so here are your choices:

The VAMPIRE box:


With the VAMPIRE box, I got a little over-zealous with my book-buying when I first got back into the whole reading thing, when I was pregnant with my daughter.  So, I caught a few clearance items at Borders and, even though I hadn't read all of the previous books in a series, I imagined I would, so I bought the clearance books, regardless of the fact that they were books 5 or 7 in a series that I hadn't started or had barely begun at the time.  I have since discovered that I either don't have time to start the series or I just can't fathom finishing the series because of the books I have read.  Make of that what you will, but regardless, this bodes well for your bookshelf, should you win.

The EVERYTHING-BUT-THE-KITCHEN-SINK box is more ecclectic in taste.  There are a couple of ARCs in there, though the finished copies are already out in the wild.  There are also some books that were given to me, but that I never had any intention of reading.  But I think that there's a little something for everyone in this box.  And who knows?  I may even add a couple more books to it.  I'm feeling generous this week.   :)

Enter to win one or the other or both.  Makes no difference to me.  But the same person will not win both boxes.  And without further ado:
