Looking for something to read post-Hunger Games? Check out this great map. Whatever it was that you liked about Hunger Games (or other dystopia/science fiction/fantasy novels), you can find here!
Praise the person who had created this post
I have read a good amount of these and you should too because THEY’RE AWESOME
House-themed sets of Harry Potter over on Gilt. You can find them under Juniper Books.
I want them!
because for some reason I have 56 followers?? Like I was thinking of doing something like this when I hit 50 and then I came up with nothing BUT
See that crappy photo right up thar? Yeah, that’s right, I’m giving away some manga that I don’t want anymore. From when I thought I was going to collect all of the series that I liked so bought them on sale whenever I could find them. Obviously that didn’t happen, and now I’ve got a bunch of random ones and anyway.
SO: to win, just like and reblog. Seriously, you don’t need to be following me. Really, that’s not the goal here—well, unless you happen to like my blog (whut) and decide to follow it on its own merit.
WHAT I’M GIVING AWAY (in case you can’t see the titles/numbers cuz yeah webcam is crappy)
Tsubasa (Reservoir Chronicle) #6
1st place: your choice of two of the above books
2nd place: your choice of two of the books (might wanna list some secondary choices)
3rd place: the remaining book that wasn’t chosen
one like, one reblog, don’t have to follow
can’t send anywhere outside of the US (sorry)
if you get 1st or 2nd place and only want one of the books, you can defer so that there’s a 4th place winner.
everything ends on April 4 at noon (PST)
YEP so you don’t have very long! Literally, I’m skipping town in a week so I won’t be able to send stuff out after that. I’ll pick winners on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 12:00 noon (PST) so that I can then contact the winners. If you don’t reply by Friday morning (April 5) with your name, address, and choices, then your place will probably be given to someone from the Attractive Cabin (whoever’s on Skype at that time of the morning ugh plz don’t make me do that then I’ll have to make choices). I’ll then send them out sometime on Friday, but if I get to the post office late then it’ll take a few more weeks before I can get to another one.
uhhh I think that’s it. My ask box is open if you have questions…
GOOD LUCK AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR
Hello friends, friendly followers, and other denizens of tumblr!
I’m sure you have all seen these reblog contests before, and this one really isn’t anything new. I run a small business making and selling handmade books to be used as journals or sketchbooks or just to sit on your bookshelf being pretty. So far it has just been a side hobby, but I’m about to graduate from college in a few weeks and am hoping to expand this into a full-time job.
At this point, I can’t afford to pay for advertising and still sell my books at the prices I want. I want them to be affordable for people like me (college students on a budget) but at the current quantities I’m making, I can’t afford to raise my costs without raising the price as well.
So that is where you come in. I’m relying on you, my lovely followers and fellow book-lovers of tumblr, to help spread the word so I can keep making books! And while I can’t afford to pay you directly for hitting the reblog button, I can offer you an incentive: the chance to win a handmade book delivered right to your door for Christmas! And if Christmas isn’t your thing, then just for being awesome!
AND, so that your chances don’t diminish when you repost this, the number of books I give away will increase the more people reblog this! So spread it as much as possible without fear that your followers will steal the book that should have been yours! For every ten people that reblog this, I will give away one book — that means you have a ten percent chance of getting a free book just by hitting reblog!
You don’t need to follow me or anything (although it would be great if you did!) in order to win; anyone who has reblogged this post by December 18th will be entered and the winners randomly drawn.
Thank you, and good luck!
tl;dr reblog for free books!
