Thanks for entering my giveaway! It was fun to see what books you loved. The winner of the signed copy of Beyonders is…

Stephanie, who said her favorite book is The Giver by Lois Lowry. (Great choice, by the way.)


You should read through the comments on the giveaway post to see what others picked for a book-to-movie adaptation. And then hop over to Stephanie’s Etsy shop, where she sells amazingly adorable bow ties for boys + a few other fun things. The Bwun sports one of Stephanie’s ties and he looks quite dapper.



In celebration of 800 posts, I’m happy to give one of you a signed copy of Brandon Mull‘s new book Beyonders: A World Without Heroes. You may remember that I loved this book and placed it in my list of top 10 favorite books. In other words, it’s really good. And the Romgi and I went in person to have the author sign a copy for you!

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what book you’d like to see made into a movie. (Common sense: please name a book that hasn’t already been adapted.)

I really like having people read my blog, so you can get an extra entry for telling someone else about the giveaway via Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. Leave another comment with a link to your post – just one extra entry, even if you do all three things, please.

You can enter until 11:59 pm MDT on Tuesday, June 28. A winner will be drawn at random the following day, and I’ll announce it here and contact the winner via email.

Good luck!

P.S. I did a giveaway when I hit 500 posts, and the publisher provided a copy of the book then. This time, I bought Beyonders with the Romgi’s hard-earned money, so it really is a gift from me. Just because I like you guys!


This is one of those enigmatic posts where I tell you to be sure to come back tomorrow for something very exciting. Here’s a hint: this post you’re reading is #799. And I might feel like celebrating soon.
