Did someone say free book?

The Goldfinch by Donna TarttThat’s right, peeps! Remember my affiliation with the new and amazing Bloggers Recommend? You haven’t?  It’s okay. It is still a new endeavor established by two amazing bloggers who want to see bloggers generate as much buzz about new releases as IndieNext does. With that dream, the monthly Bloggers Recommend newsletter was established. Their mission is to:

  1. Provide a place for readers to learn about some of the best upcoming books every month.
  2. Highlight the recommendation power of both the blogger community and individual bloggers themselves.

I am honored and privileged to be a member of the Advisory Board of this wonderful group and have had a blast making my own recommendations. So far, I’ve chosen Unremembered by Jessica Brody, Red Moon by Benjamin Percy, He’s Gone by Deb Caletti, Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead, The Illusion of Separateness by Simon Van Booy, The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes, The Book of Secrets by Elizabeth Joy Arnold, and The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon.

I am also their Media Manager (you can find me under @BloggersRec, on GoodReads, and on Pinterest). I am extremely committed to their vision and so excited to be a part of this venture and love to help find ways to get our name out there.

Thanks to them and the absolutely fabulous people at Little, Brown, and Company, I am able to offer not one but TWO copies of the much-anticipated, already-buzzworthy The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.  Because this is such a rare occurrence for me, and because it is for a project I hold near and dear to my heart, I do have a few ground rules.

To win, you must do the following by 11:59 PM CDT on August 31st:

  1. Sign up for the monthly Bloggers Recommend newsletter
  2. Follow @BloggersRec on Twitter.
  3. Leave a comment letting me know you’ve done both, using a valid email address by which I can contact you when subscribing to the comments. Don’t worry. This part is unpublished and for my eyes only.

And that’s it! I will be verifying all subscriptions and following everyone who follows @BloggersRec. On September 1st, I will be randomly selecting two winners from among the comments and emailing the winners. So, please check out all the happenings at Bloggers Recommend and enter today!

Thanks and good luck!

    I’ve signed up for and confirmed my subscription to the Bloggers Recommend newsletter and followed BR on Twitter. I thought I had done both things already, but I guess I hadn’t. Glad to be on board.
