Epic Contest Round 1

Ok so I can't help but notice that I have WAY too many copies of a certain few books on my shelves. So I thought to myself Hayley why not give them away to your faithful followers haha.

 Ok guys so here's how this is gonna work, right now I have 21 books to give away and I will give at least one away each round.  How long are the rounds you ask- well they are two weeks and each round I will give you a fun question to answer (nothing hard or strenuous I promise). So the first round begins tonight Friday, April 8th (not the 13th as stated in a previous post- I need to get an agenda right haha) and will go until Thursday April 21st midnight, where I will draw a winner (or maybe two, you won't know until I've drawn them) The first winner(s) will be announced on my blog on Friday, April 22nd after 12pm, as well, that is when round two will begin and so on until I run out of books.

You pick what book you want me to send you out of the fun list below:

(I'm so sorry for the sideway shot like I've said before, my camera skills suck)

Dead Is the New Black by Marlene Perez (x1)
Dead Is a State of Mind by Marlene Perez (x2)
Dead Is So Last Year by Marlene Perez (x5)
Dead Is Just a Rumor by Marlene Perez (x5)
Graceling by Kristin Cashore (x4)
The Maze Runner by James Dashner (x3)
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner (x1)

McCoy is protecting these books for me while I'm at work during the day and trust me he's vicious. 

So here's what you have to do in order to enter: You MUST be a follower and leave a comment on this post picking one book you want out of the bunch and how you would get it away from McCoy. Be creative guys cause McCoy is very coy. Extra entries can be earned by doing the following:

  1. I obviously already follow your blog and your twitter, I have tweeted about your contest, I have it posted on my contest page of my blog, and it has now been facebooked.

    I have no idea what book I'd like because I've never heard of them... any suggestions?

  2. I would love to read Maze Runner. I'll lure McCoy away using a someone dressed in a bone costume. If that didn't work, I'll cover the person meat products! No dog could ignore such a buffet!

  3. Well since I don't have any of Marlene Perez's books, but want them I'll take Dead is the New Black!

    And McCoy would be easy, I'll just rub bacon grease all over me...but then he might really try to eat me, lol.

    I tweeted and I follow (@takingitonebookatatime)

    I FB'ed about it:

  4. Hmmm, I think I'll have a copy of Dead is the New Black, by Marlene Cobb.

    As for McCoy? Well I'd tell him that there was a cat in the kitchen eating his favorite treats. I might even put a recorder in the kitchen with cat crunching dog treat sounds to convince him. When he raced away to protect is interests, with a easy eye and fast fingers I'd quickly grab my favorite from the stack. Then I'd run fast before he realized he'd been conned.

    Have followed and also retweeted the original post from @takingitonebook from @carolholaday. Thanks @takingitonebook for the head's up!

  5. I'd LOVE a copy of Dead is the New Black! :)

    Hm. How would I... OH I KNOW!

    McCoy will be watching for me, right? Well, I'll just get a cardboard copy of myself and put it somewhere. I'll spritz it with some bacon scented perfume(They make this: for good measure.
    While he run after and probably attacks the cutout, I'll run for the book. He'd probably realize that he'd been had pretty quickly(he looks smart), so I'd run to the nearest window, call for my pet unicorn Jim( I'd land on his back and we'd haul butt, loot in hand.

    +1: I follow you on twitter.
