The Completely Out-of-Control, Over-the-Top Book Giveaway [CONTEST CLOSED]

It’s been a while since I did one of these. (Flashback to the Contest of BABEL.) I always seem to end up with a stack of books that I’ve accumulated through various means: being at the library’s withdrawn store or the thrift store without an inventory of my library, accidentally buying a duplicate, receiving a duplicate, or intentionally buying a used duplicate because I liked the book and hoped to pass it on to someone.

Comment on this post before 7 pm CDT,  Monday, October 26, for your chance to win some of the books pictured below. I will randomly pick at least three winners, each of whom will be able to select up to five books. Most of the books are used and, unsurprisingly, are likely to have a wee bit of cat hair on them. 🙂 (Please note that actual cats are not included in the giveaway.) (Contest open everywhere, although due to the cost of international shipping, international winners will only be able to select up to three books.)

Hmm. Trying again for an unobscured shot…

“Big kitty, I don’t want these books to go away. I like sitting on them.” -Mayhem

“Don’t worry, May – after these go away, we can just knock more off the bookshelves for you to sit on.” -Chaos
