Three Good Things Book Giveaway Continues -- and a Winner!

Did you guess the title for my first "mystery" book giveaway?

Mockingbird by Kathy Erskine.

I know you're all dying to know who won, so (drum roll.......):

Congratulations to Barbara Watson!

I'll be sending an e-mail to get the scoop on how to send her the book. But, if you didn't win that one, don't give up!

The giveaway goodness continues!

I'll be giving away two more middle grade books, one "mystery" book a week for the next two weeks. For a chance to win, all you need to do is comment on this blog post. To make it a little more fun, you can get more chances to win by guessing the book title from the clues below. Are you ready?

Here's how you can win this week's "mystery" book:

Comment on this blog post. (1 entry)

Use these three clues to guess this week's book prize for 2 extra entries (+2 entries):

1. From the backcover copy:  Wishes are slippery things. You have to be very specific or you can get exactly what you wished for and still end up with nothing.

2. A couple of the sayings from this book are  "Never whistle on a boat" and "It's bad luck to change a boat's name."

3. Other books by the same author include: Happy Birthday, Hamster; Hot Rod Hamster; and Rules.

*Remember, all of the books are fresh new copies of ones I've read so far for my 100 book challenge.

The deadline for this week's giveaway is Saturday, July 16, 2011.


  1. I made a guess just for fun to see if I was right, but if I am, I already have the book, so don't count me in the contest! What a fun game! Do you mind if I borrow it sometime :)

  2. I know this one!! And it's one I want to read, so fingers crossed.

  3. Congratulations to the winner.

    I know this one. This book is on my wish list so I hope I win!

  4. I don't have a guess for this one (but can't wait to hear what it is!) and am THRILLED to have won MOCKINGBIRD!
