A Book A Day Giveaway - Day #2

I cleaned out my house this summer, in a big way. We're talking moving furniture, crawling under things with vacuum attachments and making use of dumpsters. I'm in the habit of grabbing books I don't really need, particularly at library clearing sales. I can't STAND to see a book go in the trash. So you guys are going to benefit from that here in the Book A Day Giveaway. Each of the books I'm giving away is not new (with the exception of the big, fun kicker on Friday). These books are either former library books or reading circle copies. Not shiny, not new - but still a good read.

On FRIDAY I will be giving away a SIGNED copy of THE WARRIOR HEIR by Cinda Williama Chima. In order to win this nice little cherry-on-top prize, you must've entered to win one of the books given away earlier in the week.

In order to participate in the Book A Day Giveaway all you have to do is a be a follower of my blog, and comment on the post of the book you'd like to have. Remember, in order to win the signed Cinda Williams Chima book you must've entered yourself (commented) on a book from earlier in the week.

Winners will be chosen by random.org and will be announced at the next Saturday Slash!

Today's giveaway:


Troy Billings is seventeen, 296 pounds, friendless, utterly miserable, and about to step off a New York subway platform in front of an oncoming train. Until he meets Curt MacCrae, an emaciated, semi-homeless, high school dropout guitar genius, the stuff of which Lower East Side punk rock legends are made. Never mind that Troy's dad thinks Curt's a drug addict and Troy's brother thinks Troy's the biggest (literally) loser in Manhattan. Soon, Curt has recruited Troy as his new drummer, even though Troy can't play the drums. Together, Curt and Troy will change the world of punk, and Troy's own life, forever.

I really enjoyed K.L. Going's "St. Iggy" - would very much like to read "Fat Kids!" She writes with such an authentic voice. Fingers are crossed, and thanks for a great contest!

I love fat kids. Sign me up. Or count me in. Do something with me.

Very intriguing concept! I'd love to win and devour this book like a hot fudge sundae.

Matt Sinclair said...

I like the idea and I'd not heard of this story or writer before, so I'll enter here.

This one sounds fantastic. Thanks for the giveaway!

Never heard of this. It sounds brilliant! I love books with loser main characters. I'm so sick of the insecure ones who are actually just pretty and well-liked.
