The Scorch Trials Giveaway!

So, I got an unexpected package in the mail today- another Advanced Reader Copy of THE SCORCH TRIALS by James Dashner.

How cool is that? So, since I have two copies, I can't NOT give you a chance to win.

Do you want it? How could you not????

Here's the rules....

* be a Very Cool Person (i.e. follower on this blog)
* leave your e-mail address in your comment
* and Say something!!! Like that your dog finally learned how to roll over or that you bought a new package of pencils today. I don't know. Just something. I love reading about you people.

I'll use to choose a winner September 27. Good luck!

I'm really interested in reading this book! I tried picking out a picture, by the way, for what road I'm on, but couldn't decide! I think it's probably sort of like Lombard St. in San Francisco!

Today we had to read a LOT of Puritan poetry (Anne Bradstreet and Edward Taylor, specifically) in my American Lit class. It was a little bit weighty and repetitive, but interesting all the same!

This is great! I am dying to read Scorch Trials - I just read Maze Runner a few weeks ago. Thank you for the entry.

Something about me - I just took a flower arranging class last Thursday. I'm not very creative but I love flowers and it was such a treat to spend a few hours learning more about them, putting them together, and then taking home my arrangement.

But tonight we played the team that has been #1 in the harder division for the past two season and we run-ruled them! (which means we had more than 10 runs than they did so the game ended early!) Very exciting!

Plus I had a coupon which was buy 1 get 1 free. Yipee! Just what I need. I've lost 80lbs. in 2 years and need to lose lots more. I've had a hard time trying to stick to my diet this year.

I play volleyball for my highschool team. I'm only a sophomore and I'm playing Middle Front or Middle Blocker for Junior Varsity!!! My coach has me starting over a few of the Juniors and I'm the only sophomore playing JV. I've gotten a few blocks, dumps and hits. I'm just so thrilled to be back in the game and playing. (Our season started late.)

Anyway, that's me. I love sports (which is a good thing I'm tall) and reading. I love reading.

My oldest really hopes I'll win, she really wants to read it.

Aren't all moms?! He, he :-)

I seriously need that Advance Reader's Copy! I live in the Philippine Islands in Asia, and we scarcely get the good books in the bookstore back here! Just a ton of nonfiction, self-help blahhh! :( And yes, all those exclamation points were very necessary. Any bookworm would die out here.

I'm turning fifteen on October 10 by the way so this would be a gnarly birthday gift.

Yep. And even if I don't win, well, I'm hoping you'll send me one of your books? Because I need some more literature in my life and I'm so desperate that it's pathetic.

ossmcalc said...

Well, you asked what was going on with us. I am actually scared right now. I have to go to workman's comp court on Tuesday morning for an accident that happened March 7, 2006 at school that has pretty well cost me use of my right shoulder and arm and definitely cost me my career as a secondary math teacher that I truly loved. On October 6, I am having surgery to remove the cancer next to my right eye that is on top of the junction of the tear ducts. Four years ago I was told that this cancer was benign when it was removed from next to the left eye. It was lower, and the tear ducts were not an issue. I just had to have two surgeries to repair my face after a big hole was left after the cancer was removed. But I just know that I am going to make it, and that the sun will keep coming up each morning.

Thank you,

Christine W
