Great Monday Give: Yet Another Mystery Grab Bag

I got so wrapped up in the last day of summer that I completely forgot today was Monday. I'll end the season as I began and celebrate by throwing together another mystery grab bag like this one and this one. So, for the Great Monday Give I will send one lucky reader a bag/box of awesome mystery books of yore. This promises to be the best collection yet, so please... leave a comment on this post before September 19, Sunday at 11:59 PM. I'm running it for two weeks to ensure everyone has a chance to enter. (Just in case you are on vacation this week... on a beach... drinking lots of margaritas... and rereading Twilight for the 10th time.) A winner will be selected on the 20th and announced sometime that morning and all will be right with the world.

As for the winner of last week's Gyo's Baby Animals give.... that honor goes to Sara... send me your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com, and I'll get it out to you ASAP! Have a great last few moments of summer folks!

Susana said...

Ooooh! I'm so in.
Would dearly love to be on vacation. I would even read _Twilight_, if that meant I got one. Instead, I just spent a nice half-hour reading through your posts this summer, which I suspect is better reading, anyway. Now back to work. Thanks!

Celeste said...

Yah, no vacation here either! But a mystery box of lovely books was certainly sweeten this deal!

Drop my name in. Thanks! You'd also be proud that I found a used copy of "Where is Wallace?" this weekend for $4.

Ah, about that vacation. In the middle of the school session, and pouring all over, ahem, I think the books will be much more of a statistical probability!

I actually have book withdrawal dreams when I try to cut back on book acquisitions, so the promise of the possibility of a box of mystery books creates an unhealthy hunger in me.

Stephanie said...

I would love to add to my classroom library. Thanks for the giveaway.

ossmcalc said...

I would love to win the bag/box of awesome mystery books of yore. I was such a great fan of mystery books when I was in elementary school and would love to pass that passion onto my grandson. Of course, I would have to read them first before I sent them to him.

Thank you,

As a stay-at-home mother I would love just once to solve a mystery that doesn't involve missing left socks/gloves or unidentified wet and/or sticky spots on the carpet.
