Benefit From My Bargain Finds Giveaway!

So I went to Borders tonight, big surprise! Their clearance sale was down to everything for $2 and there were still a lot of great looking books left. So I decided to grab a few and give them away to you guys. Someone besides me should benefit from my bargain finds! Unfortunately I've only read one of these (Audrey, Wait! and it was really good) but I have my own copies of the rest of these to read as well! So since these are bargain books they have price stickers and the little black lines on some of their bottoms.

The Books:
Revenge of the Homecoming Queen by Stephanie Hale (paperback)

Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty (hardcover)

Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart (hardcover)

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway (hardcover)

How To Enter:
- There will be 4 winners, each winning one book.

-Leave a comment on this post telling me about the most interesting book you read recently and which (or all) of the 4 books you would like to win.

- For one additional entry become a follower of my blog (if you do so already that counts too, just let me know) and leave a separate comment letting me know!

- This giveaway is open to addresses within the U.S. and Canada.

- Please leave a way for me to contact you if you are a winner!

- The giveaway will end Friday February 20th at 11:59pm Central Time.

Did I write this too fast and confuse anyone? Let me know!

  3. Your post sounded fine.

    I think the most interesting book I read so far would be Cross Country. I love reading james Patterson. His books are always fast paced and action packed.

    I would love to win one of the first two. I have never seen or heard of them before.

    Thank is so nice of you to offer those great books.

  10. *gasp* How do you get so lucky at these bargain sales?? The Borders I go to never have anything good...

    I'm in the midst of reading Sunshine by Robin McKinley right now. Imagine Megan McCafferty writing something like Twilight. It's that good.

    I would really like to win Audrey, Wait! if I am ever so lucky. =)

    Le sigh...

  47. The most interesting book I've read recently is probably Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers. I heard of it on your blog way before it came out and I wanted to read it really badly, then I forgot about it until a few weeks ago. I bought it and read it in a day - it's one of my new favorite books. :)

    I've already read The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, so I don't think it'd be fair if I entered to win it (even though I really want to ;D), but I'd really like to read Audrey, Wait!.

    Thanks. :)
