Back to Business Monday: A SWEET TWEET BOOK PRIZE!!!

Okay, I'll admit to a mild Twitter addiction.  So because I'm not ready for the holiday gift-giving to end AND in anticipation of the upcoming New Year AND because I'm going to try an experiment with a Twitter contest countdown, I'm sharing some "Tweet" love with...

for one lucky winner!

What'll you get? 
ANY YOUNG ADULT NOVEL YOU'D LIKE ($20 limit!) first published in 2010 plus a copy of a 1910 classic children's book (can you guess it?).

How do you enter?
Leave a comment here at the blog naming your 2010 book of choice PLUS a contact email. 

What DON'T you have to do?
Follow my blog, retweet my contest, follow-me-on-Twitter, friend me on Facebook or any of that stuff (I hate pressure) though I won't complain if you do!

How will I choose a winner?
As usual, I will write each entrant's name on a slip of paper, and place them all in a stainless steel mixing bowl from which my assistant, Batman, will draw the winner.  Hoping someday to have enough people enter my contests that I'll have to figure out how to use those cool Google contest entering gadgets but, for now, let's just say your chances of winning are likely pretty good!

The deadline for entry is 1 PM EST on Thursday, January 6, 2011, and the winner will be announced here at the blog (I'll also contact you) on Friday, January 7.

Thanks for the contest! How about, for me, Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl?

It's been on my list forever, but I can't seem to widdle down the books looking at me on my shelf. I'd love a guilt free book win!

Happy Holidays!
