Giveaway:: Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich

Kicking off October's Giveaway, my singing Valentine Gorilla ((affectionately named Buttercup)) would like to present you Finger Lickin' Fifteen by Janet Evanovich:

Now, I came across this book through the Literary Guild. You know, if you don't check your email often they send you these little notices saying "please reply to your main selections!" and if you do not, well, then they send it to you anyway. I've been guilty of this countless times, but this time I thought I'd be clever and give this as a Happy Birthday gift to a friend, as I know she reads this series. This was some weeks ago, and I got a text from her after I've contrived my awesome plan that said::

I'm so excited to read my new Stephanie Plum novel!!!!!!! *smileyfacesallovertheplace*

For a moment I was confused as to how she knew I was intending to give her the novel...and then I realized...Oh.

So my awesome plan failed -- lucky for you.

I hear this is a great author and a great series. I'd keep it, but I can't just dive into a middle of a series like that. I have to start all the way back at number one. So, here's the October Giveaway!!

It's hardcover. And as you can hopefully see by Buttercup channeling his inner Vana White, it's in excellent condition. Never read. I've only recently removed it from the box. I promise to dust it off before I send it out. ;) Oh! *Also! You'll be receiving another novel by Ms. Evanovich ((just for being soo awesome!!)). I do believe this one's older but was reprinted. Love Overboard. The cover says it was originally titled as Ivan Takes a Wife. This additional novel ((in soft cover)) has been gently used, so there are slight creases around the spine but in otherwise awesome condition.

This time around, I will keep this contest open until Thursday, October 15th. It's open to U.S. Residents only, I'm sorry.

Borrowing from other bloggers as they conduct their contests, things will be different this time around. There will be more chances for your name to be entered into the drawing, which is always a good idea!

+1 Please comment here with a book you'd like to recommend me read; I love getting recommendations! ((Be sure to consult my booklist for any repeats)). Don't forget to leave an email address so I can contact the winner.

+2 If you follow me, I'll love you. (:

+3 If you give me a plug, I'll love you even more! ((Mention me in a blog post, or put it on a side bar. Be sure to give me a link!))

That's six chances to win. ;)

Well, with that said...Good luck to everyone! Enjoy!

My mom loves this series! She has been on the wait list forever for this book at our local library!
I recommend reading anything by author Lynsay Sands. Her vampire/romance have so much humor in them!

Awesome Giveaway!
I highly recommend Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, since I did not see any of Nabokov's works on your list.

I recommend Gone with the Wind. Actually, I recommend that everyone read the book as soon as possible (if they haven't done so already). It's just that superb.

Ahhh... Gone with the Wind... Rhett Butler...

Oh, wait, the giveaway. Ahem. Please enter me in it as well.

Would love to read this.

One of my favorite books this year has been the Boneman's Daughter by Ted Dekker. It was outside my comfort zone, but was well-written and enjoyable.
