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

Did you guess the title of last week's "mystery" book?

It was Touch Blue by Cynthia Lord.

Congratulations to Theresa Milstein!

She's this week's winner!

If you didn't win a free book this time, you still have another chance. The giveaway goodness continues!

Today I'm announcing the clues for the third and final "mystery" book in my three good things giveaway.

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. The opening:  "All I've ever wanted is for Juli Baker to leave me alone. For her to backoff—you know, just give me some space."

2. You may have seen this book as a Rob Reiner film, with actors Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe (and the giveaway copy of the book includes photos from the movie).

3. The author of this book wrote The Running Dream (also on my 100 book list this year), is well-known for her girl detective Sammy Keyes, and is an avid runner.

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

The deadline for entering this giveaway is Saturday July 23, 2011.


  1. What a fun giveaway!!! Do I put my guess in the comment box? I don't want to ruin the fun for others but the form won't let me fill it out... silly work computer. My guess begins with the letter F and ends with the letter D.

    Anywho if I can answer in the comments I'll come back later and enter it in... otherwise I'll wait until I can fill out the silly form!

  2. Jen, I'm pretty sure I know what your guess is from the clues you left (tricky you for giving me a puzzle too)!

  3. Oooh! If I get this one right, I'd love to read it!

  4. Great giveaway and lots of fun to do. I'm having a computer day like Jen, so may have to come back. If I don't make this round, I'll try another.

  5. Congrats to Theresa! Shoot--I don't know this title based on the clues, though I'm guessing I'll do a head slap when it's announced :)

  6. Congrats, Theresa!

    I'm clueless as to this title. Cool contest, though.

  7. Congrats, Theresa!

    I entered. :)

  8. Congrats on winning Cynthia's book, Theresa!!

    Fingers crossed for this one. Thanks!

  9. I'd love to read this one - it would be a great fit for my classroom! :)

    congrats to Theresa!!
