To countdown the release of The Future of Us (November 21st!), Carolyn Mackler and I will give away one autographed Advance Reader’s Copy every week. Along with the autographed copy (signed by both of us), we’ll toss in another goodie that's book-related.
For our eleventh giveaway, the bonus item is a bookface t-shirt, as seen in the video below. The winner will get to choose the t-shirt size, so you can win it for yourself or use it as a gift. And I suppose if you really want the actual t-shirt that I'm wearing in the video (filmed last summer in the humid heat of New Orleans), that can be arranged. But...ewwww!
We'll randomly select one person who comments on this Future Friday post to receive both prizes. There’s no need to leave your email address, but do check back on Saturday to see if you’ve won.
This week's contest has three parts.
PAST: In Future Friday #3, we asked you to name your favorite book that was published in 1996 (it had to be a book you've read). Now, we want to know which book published in 1996 you want to read, but haven't. To help you along, here's a fairly good list of titles.
PRESENT: Tell us a book you're currently reading, or the last book you've read.
FUTURE: Let us know which book you're most excited about reading that hasn't been released yet, but will be released in 17 days, and was co-written by a woman in New York and a man in California.
Here are our answers:
PAST - Religious secrets and historical fiction? I have no idea why I haven't already read POPE JOAN by Donna Woolfolk Cross.
PRESENT - I was never into role-playing games, but have always been fascinated by them...and the people who play them. FANTASY FREAKS AND GAMING GEEKS by Ethan Gilsdorf explores both.
FUTURE - I've already pre-ordered my e-book of THE FUTURE OF US, but I can't wait to buy a hardcopy the day it comes out, too!!!
PAST - I never read THE NOTEBOOK by Nicholas Sparks, and was just recently thinking that I should.
PRESENT - I just finished an advance copy of REVIVED by Cat Patrick and really liked it.
FUTURE - I am most looking forward to seeing THE FUTURE OF US hit the bookstores!!!
