So Many Books So Little Time Giveaway

Friday, August 30, 2013 with 8 comments
I'm a compulsive collector of books.  I'm sure many of you can relate.  I receive a few ARCs for review, trade for others, or I find them along with my other purchases at the used bookstore.  I also buy entirely too many books when I find them on sale.  And there are even more unread ebooks on my Kindles.  Yes, plural.

So, it should come as no shock that I'm running out of room on my bookshelves again, despite the fact that mere months ago, I purchased another one for my office.  That makes two jumbo sized bookshelves and one standard bookcase, all courtesy of IKEA.

That's a lot, considering I started out with a self-installed set of three shelves when this addiction first overtook me.  I'd take a picture just to show you how bad it is now, but it's rather embarrassing.  I'll be cleaning and reorganizing them this weekend, kind of a preemptive fall cleaning, if you will, and then I'll show them off.

For now, I'd just like to clear off a few books that I just have no further need for.  I'm actually planning a series of little giveaways like this.  Shipping will be a bit of a pain, but hey, it beats buying another bookshelf that I have zero room for.  :-P

Anyway, this is where you come in.  Today, I'd like to give away two ARCs of upcoming releases that I'm just not going to have the time to get to anytime soon.  My hope is that whoever wins would be open to doing a guest review of each book here on the blog.  That's what ARCs are meant for, after all.  It's not absolutely required -- I don't know how I'd enforce that, anyway:  "Hey, you didn't review those books for me, give them back!" -- but it would be awesome.

This is the first in hopefully a series of giveaways to clear off my shelves.  Not all will be ARCs and not all will be newer releases.  In fact, probably most of the titles will be older ones, a lot of them entirely unread and therefore pitifully sad sitting there on my shelves untouched and unloved.  :(

So, here's what's up for grabs:

Teardrop by Lauren Kate
The Eye of Minds by James Dashner

I'm so excited to make some room on my shelves, and I'm super excited for one of you to win these and then tell me how they were!  I really wish I could read them myself, but there are just so many books and so little time!

Thanks for stopping by & happy reading!

  2. Sounds like a great giveaway idea. Good luck to all your US readers. I look forward to your international one.

  3. Thank you for the great giveaway! I also collect a ton of books.

  4. This is a great idea! I am in a similar situation with more books than space for them. I am on a book buying ban until I make a dent in the ones I already own. :( Or at least until we get wall shelves up at the house.
    I have been dying to read these two books for forever! Especially The Eye of Minds. Thank you for the opportunity! And excited to follow a new blog! :)

  5. Yay - I just gave away a bunch of books and it felt great -- two blog giveaways and I sent a box of books to an inner city charter school. I am not buying any more bookcases!!

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! I have like a wall on built in bookshelves in my bedroom and I am seriously running out of space..and my Kindle(only one) don't even get me started...xD

  7. Thank you so much. Have a Happy Labor Day!
