Friday, January 3, 2014



If you checked out my 2014 Blogging Resolutions & Goals post, you'll know that one of the things I need to work on this year is my propensity to hoard books.  So, to kick off the new year right, I'm culling a massive amount of books from my library.  Technically, these were already on their way out and were already given space on the great shelf of giveaways (pictured below), but still, they need new homes and I don't like the top of my shelf being cluttered like that.  So, they are gone, baby, gone.  (Oh, and quite a few of those have already left the building, but I didn't take a more recent picture before I packed them all up.  Oops.)


Anyway, I've now got three boxes full of mystery books to give away.  One contains the entire Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick in hardcover.  Another is a miscellaneous box including paperbacks and hardcovers.  And the last box is chock full of ARCs -- 13 to be exact.  (I didn't do that on purpose, that's just how many happened to fit in the box.)


Which box is which?  Your guess is as good as mine.  No, seriously...I didn't label them.  D'oh!  But if you win, you get to pick which box you want:  A, B, or C.  There will be three winners because I want to see all of these books leave before I have the opportunity to open the boxes back up and decide I want to keep some of those books.  Trust me, I am weak-willed when it comes to culling my books.  It's like they're a part of me or something.  :*(


Rules:
  • This giveaway is US only.  Sorry, international peeps, but it costs a lot to ship boxes this size.  I'll have a giveaway for you guys soon, though...pinky swear.
  • One entry per household.
  • Entries will be verified.  Any entry found to be falsified will result in disqualification of all entries for that participant.
  • Winner will be notified via email.  Winner will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.  Please check your SPAM folder!!!
  • I am not responsible for lost packages.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Be sure to check out the rest of the stops on the Clear Your Shelves Giveaway Hop:



I'm so excited to make some room on my shelves, and I'm super excited for you guys to win one of the mystery boxes! =)  Anyone care to hazard a guess as to which box holds which books?  :P

Thanks for stopping by & happy reading!
