A Book A Day Giveaway - Day #6


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:



Before he knew about the Roses, 16-year-old Jack lived an unremarkable life in the small Ohio town of Trinity. Only the medicine he has to take daily and the thick scar above his heart set him apart from the other high schoolers. Then one day Jack skips his medicine. Suddenly, he is stronger, fiercer, and more confident than ever before. And it feels great - until he loses control of his own strength and nearly kills another player during soccer team tryouts.

Soon, Jack learns the startling truth about himself: he is Weirlind, part of an underground society of magical people who live among us. At their helm sits the feuding houses of the Red Rose and the White Rose, whose power is determined by playing The Game - a magical tournament in which each house sponsors a warrior to fight to the death. The winning house rules the Weir.

As if his bizarre heritage isn't enough, Jack finds out that he's not just another member of Weirlind - he's one of the last of the warriors - at a time when both houses are scouting for a player.
