GIVEAWAY! Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging

Do you guys remember me raving about Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison about two weeks ago? Well I liked it so much and it was so hilarious I went out and hunted down another copy to share with one of you guys!

So here's how it's going to work:
Leave a comment on this post telling me the funniest book you have read this summer!

For one additional entry, blog about this giveaway and leave the link in the comments here.

Open to residents of the US only. Sorry everyone else, I still love you!

Please leave your email address in your comment so I will be able to contact you if you are the winner. :)

The giveaway will end Saturday August 2nd at 11:59 PM Central Time. (That's the day Breaking Dawn is released!)

For anyone picky like me when it comes to books here are some condition notes: I bought this book new from Half Price Books but it has that black mark on it's underside and a couple little pokes in the cover like a staple was sitting on it! I found the best of what they had. That's where I got mine too! So it's not perfect but it's pretty good! It also doesn't have that "Extras Inside" feature.

Comment away, I look forward to hearing about all the books that are making you guys laugh this summer!


  1. Great giveaway! Love that cat!! I'll be blogging about it in a few. :)

  2. Here's mine:

  3. Awesome!

    I blogged about it here:

    P.S. Love the blog!

  4. This was a favorite of mine, too. No need to enter me 'cause I read it. (and it's not fair that the person who runs the contest blog enters. I think it's like cheating!)

    For another funny laugh, check out Toni McGee Causey's two Bobbie Faye books. I've only read the first and man, is it fun.

  5. By the way, the funniest book I've read this summer would have to be Model: a memoir. I loved Cheryl's spunk and wit!

    Will blog about this at my blog in the above post.
    would love to be entered. I am reading a new book Guide to Pirate Parenting by Tim Bete, and I was laughing on page 1 it is that good.

  7. my email is sassylucylootoo(at)yahoo(dot)com forgot that sorry.

  8. The funniest book I've read: a toss-up between The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.

    Please enter me! I love all things British -- I probably won't need the glossary. lol My email is BookishRuth at gmail dot com.

  9. I would love to be entered to win this book, I've heard alot of good things about it!!! :)

    My funniest summer read so far would have to be: Bobbie Faye's Very (very, very, very) Bad Day: A Novel by Toni McGee Causey

    I've also blogged about you here:

  10. Ok so the funniest book I have read so far this year has got to be Tan Lines by J. J Salem. I will be holding a contest of my own giving away a copy of Tan Lines starting July 22.

  12. I feel so deprived - I haven't read a funny book yet this summer. Could use one, though.

  13. The funniest book I've read this summer is Brain Droppings by George Carlin. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  14. I gave this book to my cousin a while ago -- before I got to read it -- so it would be great to finally get a chance to read it myself.

    I am reading a really funny book right now -- The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie -- it's really good so far.

    if I win (that would be so cool)

  16. One of the books i've read, Perfect on Paper, the char. Waverly Bryson, has a comical personality I thought she was funny with her different experiences trying to date again. I would love to be entered into your contest!

  17. wanted to mention i saw this posted at J-kayes book blog.

  18. I would love to win a copy of this - I could use a few more laughs this summer.

    The funniest thing I've read so far this summer is Shining City by Seth Greenland. I highly recommend it.

  19. Yeah Alea! Love the book cover!
    The funniest book, I am actually reading right now When you are engulfed in flames by Sedaris. He read a part on Letterman Friday, so funny! Tracy

    I think the funniest book I've read recently has been A Little Less Talk and A Lot More Action by LuAnn McLane. The part when the heroine is "guesting" on a reality cook show is just hilarious.

    Also very funny was Meg Cabot's YA "How to be Popular". While I laughed a lot, I was also grateful that I'm no longer a teen!

  21. Great giveaway! My vote for the funniest book I have read this year is "How LaJuanita Mumps Got to Join Augusta National Gold Club Real Easy!" It is written by Todd Sentell.
    It is one book in the "Toonimints of Champions" series. Thanks, Cindi

  22. ooh, probably bennett madison's "the blonde of the joke" (out soon!). funny AND serious. GOOD.

  23. Ronda7:18 AM

    I have to say that I have not read any funny books this summer, to busy reading all of these vampire series that are out right now, and they tend to not be funny! But please enter me in your contest!

  24. Congrats on your first contest! :D

    Can't say I've read all that many funny books this summer--do comics count? lol I love Garfield, Calvin & Hobbs, and Foxtrot especially!


  25. I've been looking at these books wondering if I'd like them for a while...

    hopesblog @ hotmail . com

    And it shall be added to the blog post where you let me know about it tonight. :D

  26. It probably helps if I tell you the funniest book I've read this summer, yes? haha. It was Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty. Amazing book if you haven't read it. :D

  27. It's been awhile since I've read anything funny. But I've read the Aisling Grey series by Katie MacAlister and the dialogue and interaction between the characters made me laugh. Does that count?

  28. I commented earlier but just wanted to let you know that I've mentioned your contest on my blog.

  29. Hi, Alea:

    The funniest (and possibly the best) book I've read this summer is definitely Land of a Hundred Wonders by Lesley Kagen.

  36. Funniest book I read this summer was "Fifteen Minutes of Shame" by Lisa Daily. It wasn't ha ha funny, but the ironic kind that I love so much.

  37. funniest book i've read: probably the msot recent one i've read, Fact of Life #31 by Denise Vega :D

  38. I haven't read any extremely funny books this summer but the one I laughed the most while reading was SCHOOLED by Anisha lakhani (will be in stores August 5th). It's witty, funny, crazy and full of great fashion.
    Please throw my name in the hat for this giveaway!

  39. Great contest, Alea! I've been doing a bunch of research for my next book, so I haven't read a funny book this summer.. But, I'm reading the comments for suggestions.. The funniest books of all time - Megan McCafferty's series - Second Helpings is my fave. :)

  40. The funniest book? Either one of the P.G. Wodehouse books or A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius which I'm reading now which is both sad and funny.


  41. Funniest book I've read this summer? One Butt Cheek at a Time by Amber Kizer.

  42. Can't believe I haven't entered yet. Hmm... let's see... must be The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry. It appears that most of the books I read this summer have been depressing.

    Have you entered my Specialists contest yet? You could win all 4 books and they are signed too!

  43. funniest book I read this summer was Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty. I was a really funny highschool girl. It was very sarcastic and had lots of awkward moments exactly what the teen age is like.

  44. The funniest book I've read so far is Pratchett's "Nation". Believe me when I tell you I drew stares at the kiddy pool for my unsuppressed snorks of glee :o)

    You can find me @ my blogger id, LT, or (I mean should I win... or if you just wanna say howdy)
