CLOSED! – A Megalodon of a Giveaway! (Wordbird’s One!)

September 2, 2010

Yes. Yes, it is that big. And I have no idea what “Taucher” and whatever that other thing is mean either.


Oh my gosh!!! Wordbird turned one year old yesterday! Madeleine Rex has been blogging for a year. And I haven’t been that irritating or destroyed the World Wide Web accidentally with some wacky Rex Virus. Mission accomplished.

I hope you guys have enjoyed the past year as much as I have. I’ve met so many wonderful people over that time period. I can honestly say that joining this online community is the best thing I’ve ever done for my writing and bookish life . I have so many incredible friends here, all because my dear mother encouraged me to start a blog. I don’t think either of us really thought this would go anywhere… but, surprisingly, it has (and that might just be because you guys have boring day jobs, but I’d like to think there’s more to it than that – and that you guys love your jobs). I’m grateful for you support and friendship.

So, I’m giving you books! Lots of them.

(Links are to my reviews.)


  • Amazon Books 10$ Gift Card
  • The Devouring by Simon Holt (old ARC – new condition – Thanks, LB!)
  • Soulstice by Simon Holt (old ARC – new condition – Thanks, LB!)
  • Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (HB – new)
  • Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick (old ARC – new condition – Thanks, LB!)
  • Happyface by Stephen Emond (old ARC – new condition – Thanks, LB!)
  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore (PB)
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore (PB)
  • The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (PB)
  • The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa (PB)
  • Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (old ARC – used – signed)
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (HB)

This giveaway is not international. I sincerely apologize. I simply can’t afford the shipping costs.

The “Grand Prize” winner will receive five books and the Amazon $1o gift card. The second winner will pick three of the remaining books, and the third winner will win the last three.

To enter the giveaway, use the form linked below.

No, not the one over there! Here.

This giveaway ends on Monday, October 4th. Extended to October 20th! We’ve had 151 entrants so far! (Edited October 4th)

So exciting!

Thanks again to Little Brown for the wonderful package of four books! I never cease to be amazed.

    To most of you: You’re welcome! Thanks for entering, and double thanks if you spread the word somehow! I really do appreciate it.

    Candace: My blog won’t allow GFC. I *am* trying to fix that, but it involves a ton of technical work that I’ll need help with. Most of the time, you can still follow through your usual means, if in a different way.

    Congratulations on your Blogging birthday!!!

    I don’t see the GFC button. So I don’t know how to follow you. I generally follow any blog I enter a contest at but my computer must not be showing it or something… I’ll bookmark your page so I can find you again, I guess.
    Thanks for the super amazing giveaway!
