Blogversary Giveaways #6 and 7.

Alright folks. It is time for the last two giveaways of my little celebration (yee-haw).

I have really enjoyed all of your responses to my questions over the last week, and all the winners will be picked at once next week and announced (The giveaways end on different days, so keep that in mind).

These last two giveaways are of small book packs. These all come from my obsessive buying and forgetting I have copies. Some are from culling and realizing that since I own the book in hardcover, I also don't need the paperback edition (it is all about making my husband happy people).

Anyway, here is Giveaway 6:

This set from top to bottom contains A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, A Room with a View by E.M. Forster, The Turn of the Screw and Daisy Miller by Henry James, and Don Quixote by Cervantes (this is a really cute hardcover).

And Giveaway 7:

Giveaway 7 includes: The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton (one of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE BOOKS), Dracula by Bram Stoker, and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

To enter, YOU MUST FOLLOW the rules-Read them carefully.

Here they are:
  • The giveaways END Sunday, September 4, 2011 at 11:59 EST.
  • You must be 13 or older to enter.
  • You must live in the U.S. (internationals-go see giveaway 3!)
  • You can only enter once.
  • You do not have to "follow" or subscribe (but do if you so feel the desire)
  • You must leave your e-mail in your comment so I can contact you if you win.
  • If you win, you have 24 hours to respond or I will choose a new winner.
  • In your comment/entry below, answer the following question: Your house is burning down and you can only manage to grab three books off your shelves-what would they be?
  • In your comment/entry below please tell me which giveaway you would like.
  • Winners will be chosen randomly using (the first winner will have precedence over which pack they would like. Second winner can accept the other pack, or pass it along to the next person I pull who requested that set).
Good Luck!


  1. Another awesome question...

    I know that books are amazing, but most of mine can be replaced. However, I have two books that were signed by my favorite authors, Preston-Child, so they would come with me. The third would be my Penguin Clothbound of 'Sense and Sensibility' because those hardcovers are just sexy...

    But it would still be a tough choice!

    As far as the giveaway goes, I'd be pleased with either one. But #6 has some titles I have been wanting to get my hands on, so I'll go with that one!

  2. Giveaway #6
    I'd take To Kill a Mockingbird, Running With Scissors, and whatever book I was reading.

  3. I would grab my Bible, Gone With the Wind (inscribed by my mother to me), and the book I'm writing (which is unfinished but a good friend just the same). :-)

    I'd love to win giveaway #6. Thank you for doing this!

  4. I would grab my scriptures, the copy of Les Miserables that my husband gave me, and my copy of Kartography by Kamila Shamsie. Thanks for this sweet giveaway and count me in for #7. lorrenrichelleATgmailDOTcom.

  5. I would take my vintage Les Miserables and two of the books my great-grandma gave to me before she died.
    I will sign up for giveaway number 6 - thanks so much!

  6. Great question! I think Gone With the Wind, The Journals of Sylvia Plath, and Alexa's baby scrapbook! I am interested in the second pack with the Wharton and Dracula...
    Thanks :)

  7. Ooooh, this is a good one. Ok, I'll play.

    I'd take How to Kill a Rockstar because its autographed, American Gods because I keep picking it up and putting it down and I want to finish it, and Nineteen Minutes because I think its such important subject matter.

    I'd love Giveaway #7. sarahsheldonATgmailDOTcom

  8. Oh, I love this question! At first I tried to pick my top favorites, but then I realized, "Wait, most of those can be replaced." So I've got to go with my books that are one of a kind: The Latin textbook from 1909 that I inherited from my great-grandmother (who found it at a library book sale!), the Shakespeare omnibus that my best friend made into a hollow book for me, and my bind up of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series which is made up to look like a fancy leather-bound book and which I don't think they make anymore.

    I'd like Giveaway #7 and my email is connor.sarahjane(at)gmail(dot)com

  9. I would take I Know This Much To be True by Wally Lamb, Catcher in the Rye, and what ever my current book was.
