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I always seem to end up with a stack of books that Iโ€™ve accumulated through various means: being at the libraryโ€™s withdrawn store or the thrift store without an inventory of my library, accidentally buying a duplicate, receiving a duplicate, or intentionally buying a used duplicate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, ย 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ (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.)

  1. LOL I just love these pictures of you two cuties sitting on the books. Cats seem to gravitate toward spots like that and plant themselves. Then look so happy about it. lol

    I’m going to sit this one out Chris but thanks for your generosity.

    Have a great day!

  2. Please add me to your list of hopefuls!

    There is just something about black cats… love to be in your space. I was cutting out fabric on the kitchen floor yesterday and mine ran over to sit right on the chalk line!!!

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Monday


  3. **Whispering, would not want this commen to go to their heads, lmao**
    But your cats are you just gorgeous!!!
    And those books!!!! Girl, drop my name in the hat for a chance at those! And when I get home this evening, you know where you will find either Chaos or May… Yep! On my side bar!!!
    Have a great day honey!

  4. Please enter me….even though I should probably be doing a giveaway like this of my own ๐Ÿ™‚ There are several that I have not read yet, that I would love to. Thanks for the chance !

  5. Just like my cat – always on top of the book I want to read ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The way I usually end up with duplicates: reprints with different covers. Ugh!

    Thanks for entering me in the giveaway.

  6. Chris- I found the first Friday Night Knitting Club totally depressing.

    Cats are much more fun!

  7. Ok…I’m game!
    May, you’re so cute.
    I met someone who could be your twin last night – except he didn’t have a spec of white anywhere. He’s being Nipped today. *wink*

  8. Wow! Super give away you have going here. Looks like Chaos and Mayhem don’t want to part with the comfy books. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have added your contest to my sidebar and will pimp it tomorrow with my weekly post.

    I have quite a few of these books (most waiting to be read ๐Ÿ™ ), so I’m going to pass on this one.

  9. What a great selection of books!
    Looks Like Chaos and Mayhem think so, too.
    Please enter me.

  10. Don’t you know that a little cat hair makes the best bookmarks? LOL!

    Great selection of books. Please add my name to the hat.

  11. Yeah books! Please count me in.

    I don’t tend to buy books quite as often anymore (yeah local library), so I don’t quite run into that problem. Though every once in a while I am tempted to check out a book I know I have on my shelf at home, because I want to start it Right Then!

  12. Hi Chris, Chaos and Mayhem. First let me say you lovelies are looking quite fetching in those photos, as always!

    And oh my, what a lovely collection of books! You all have such good taste! Please throw my name in the catnip bowl ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ~bella (and Pablo)

  13. I’m in ๐Ÿ™‚
    I’ve never won any of these kinds of giveaways but what the heck!
    The cats are your version of Bob’s Beauties me thinks.

  14. The colder days and darker days i am in need of some new books!! So would happily help you out. Suprised you got somw pics without kitty porn across the covers!

  15. I am slowly recovering from the great College Quest out West and have just gotten around to catching up on the Bloglines (147! Not bad.) I figured I’d read all five of your posts before I commented, but had to stop here. Are you sure I can’t just borrow Mayhem for a day?

  16. I would love to be entered in your contest, and think the cat hair only adds to the prize. Besides, it will blend wonderfully with my cat’s grey fur laying about.
