This isn't my library, but isn't it gorgeous? And I arrange my books by order of color too!
…but not just yet.

I have so many duplicates. I'm fairly certain that all the books on this list are duplicates. Some might possibly even be unread.

I want to give you fair warning and time to read the rules so you get everything correct and don't rush.

At exactly 12 PM PST today, a form will go up.

On this form you'll first put your name and email address.

Then, you'll find three sections on the form: ARCs, Paperbacks, and Hardcovers.

In each section you'll see a list of books. I am actually going to be charging for these books, since this isn't exactly a normal giveaway. For ARCs I only ask that you pay shipping, but for paperbacks and hardcovers there is a cover charge as well. I'm not charging a lot—I literally keep my books in mint condition and you can hardly tell they've been read. Some of these books will be recent releases, some of them were released years ago.

I really do hate to have to charge for shipping, but sadly shipping books is not cheap.

There's basic pricing for a single book on the form, but so that there's no confusion, I'm going to break it down here as well.

1 ARC: $3
2 ARCs: $4
1 Paperback: $5
2 Paperbacks: $7
1 Hardcover: $7
2 Hardcovers: $10
1 ARC & 1 Paperback: $6
1 Paperback & 1 Hardcover: $8
1 Hardcover & 1 ARC: $7

There. There shouldn't be any confusion now. Also, you must be able to send in payments via Paypal. I will not be shipping these books myself—one of my close friends has generously offered to do it to keep me sane—so I need that payment to get to her.

***If you really can't afford to pay this, then just let me know. I don't need to know your exact financial state—but if you're pretty well-to-do then please just pay the shipping. BE HONEST.***

As aforementioned, only two (2) books per person.

You're not done after you send me the form, though.

This is on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, there's also something else I'd like you to do.

After requesting your books and submitting the form, you'll need to send an email to using the same email you put on the form telling me why you want the books you've selected. It doesn't have to be long—I just want to make sure you're being genuine since I know that there are people out there who would love to have all of these books. I will still honor my first-come first-serve rule. Your response doesn't have to be as incredible and amazing as the one that came after it as long as I know that you're genuine. I need this right after you submit the form. But be sure to submit the form because you start on the email! Otherwise, someone else will submit the form before you.

Additionally—it's only two books per person, but you can check more than two boxes on the form (but don't go crazy). That is fine as long as you tell me in your email to me which of the books you most prefer. Otherwise, I won't know and I'll have to guess. Or, you could end up with nothing whereas you might have gotten something another way.

Stay tuned for noon PST, roses!



  1. That's something great to do but also a lot of works for you. I hope everything will go well ( such an organization^^).
    I won't be able to participate because i don't have paypal( it's once thing) but i have a question that could be useful for all your international followers/readers.

    Do the prices you put are the same for every ones or only for the US ( after all the shipping fee aren't the same)

    all the best and a big thank you

    courage too^^

    1. I was wondering the same thing. Are those prices the same for international followers?

  2. Hey :) um how much would shipping to Australia cost? Because this is a great idea and i would love to join in :P

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Dang it! Noon PST time is 5am in Australia :/// guess im going to miss out on everything... gaaah!

    1. don't worry Ruby, it's only 2 books per person so i 'm sure there would still be at least one that you could wish for

  5. are all the books gone? ;( i don't see a form

  6. Ok so I sent you an email at that email address you posted and I haven't heard anything back. I suppose all the books are gone now right?

    1. not necessarily but anabelle said she was going to answer us during the next week so i guess that you can hope until the 14 for example^^. it must takes some time to see all the list, check the payment etc
      i think that she will tell us if the books we asked aren't available anymore, don't worry
