Book Giveaway Carnival: L.J. Smith 4-pack!

Book Giveaway Carnival button I'm sorry, I intended to post this yesterday, but things got a little crazy and plans flew out the window. Not to worry, I am still participating in the Book Giveaway Carnival, never fear! There are lots of other people participating, too--to learn more, head over to Book Room Reviews, where Tracy is hosting this awesome event.

It took me awhile to decide what I wanted to do, but I finally figured it out on Sunday. So, what will you be entering to win? 4 "classic" titles by L. J. Smith in their newest editions! I am offering up the following:

Secret Circle1 cover Secret Circle2 cover
Vampire Diaries1 cover Vampire Diaries2 cover

That's right, the winner will get both volumes (3 titles in this 2-book omnibus!) of The Secret Circle, and the two original volumes (4 titles in this 2-book omnibus!) of the Vampire Diaries by L. J. Smith! She was one of my favorite authors when I was a teenager (The Secret Circle was my favorite series), so I thought I would pay tribute to her and give away her books so that she can become someone else's favorite author!

So how do you enter to win? It's simple, here are the rules:

(1) For one entry, leave a comment below--it's that easy!

(2) For an additional entry, become a follower or subscriber of my blog (yes, current followers already have that additional entry, woohoo!). If you're already subscribed, you've got that extra entry, too--just let me know you're a subscriber.

(3) For TWO additional entries, mention my giveaway on your blog and link back to it (please leave a comment with the link to your posting, thanks!). You should also use Tracy's Contest button in the post.

(4) This contest is open to U.S. Residents only. Sorry, I can't afford shipping it outisde the country! Your books will ship directly from Barnes & Noble.

(5) Please leave an email or some method of contact so that I can get in touch with you if you win!

(6) All entries must be received by 11:59pm EST on Sunday, March 8th. The winner will be announced sometime on Monday, March 9th.

Good luck and thanks for participating!!
