Shiver Me Timbers! It's a 3-Book Giveaway!

I haven't done a book giveaway in awhile (trekking all the way to the post office in 110 degree heat with my 2-year-old in tow isn't exactly my idea of fun), but I got something in the mail yesterday that I just had to share. See, the people at Scholastic are incredibly generous. Incredibly. So much so that they not only sent me single copies of every book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, but they also sent me a boxed set of the books. So generous, right? Because the company has been very good to me, I'm going to share the love with you. Call it Christmas in July, call it my half birthday (tomorrow), call it I'm-sick-of-summer-and-am -celebrating-that-my-kids-go-back-to-school-in-three-weeks, call it whatever you want - I'm just going to go ahead and call it awesome!

Now for the details:

The picture above shows what's up for grabs. It's a boxed set that includes Shiver, Linger and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. It's brand new, shrink-wrapped, and sells for $38.13 at Barnes and Noble and $33.37 on Amazon. The books are hardcovers. Nice, yeah?

Now for the real question, how can YOU win the set? Well, first off, you have to leave a comment on this post telling me you'd like to win. I need to have a way to contact you, so along with your comment, please leave a URL to your blog, an email address, or something. I'd love to have you spread the word about the giveaway, so if you chat it up on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, etc., I'll give you extra entries (1 extra entry per method of spreading the word). I'll also give you extra entries for subscribing/Following my blog, liking my Facebook page or following me on Twitter (@bbbforme). You can tell me everything that you did in one comment - no need to post separate comments. The contest will end on August 10 (the day my kids go back to school - yay!) and is only open to readers in the U.S. and Canada only (sorry international readers - the set is heavy and would be too expensive to mail overseas).

Okay, I think that's it. Good luck!


  1. I've been wanting to read this series & now I'm just sure I'll win & can do it. And then you can hand deliver it to my house & I can see your beautiful face because I can barely remember what you guys look like. We should get together sometime. We're heading up tomorrow to stay with the Johnsons for a week. Wish you were gonna be there...

  16. I loved the first two books and can't wait to read the third!

    I am a GFC follower of your blog!

  17. A couple things:

    - Don't be nervous if you don't live in the same city as I do. Winners will be chosen RANDOMLY, using Although not having to pay mailing costs is tempting! Just kidding. The contest will be as fair as I can possibly make it. Promise.

    - To answer Jennifer_After_Dark's question: I've only read SHIVER, the first book, and it's been awhile since I did. Looking back at my review, I see I rated it PG because of sexual innuendo. I don't remember specifics, so I'm not sure if I would recommend it for a 13 yo or not. Anyone else have an answer to this one?

  18. This is outside my normal reading sphere, but I've heard so much about this series, and I'd love to share it with my granddaughters. Thanks for the giveaway.
