Giveaway - Bring home *Bedbugs* for Thanksgiving!!

WIN A BRAND NEW COPY OF BEDBUGS FOR THANKSGIVING!!


Seriously, I love Ben Winters. Anyone who's already familiar with Sense, Sensibility and Sea Monsters knows he rocks as an author. His latest little gem - Bedbugs - is one of those horror stories that creeps up on you, bit [bite?] by bit until you find yourself still awake at 2 a.m. determined to finish the book. Cos you gotta. Know what I mean?


Anyhoo - thanks to Eric at Quirk Books I've got a pristine copy for one lucky winner.


Here's the deets:

USA ONLY. Sorry guys, but until I win the damn lottery I'm poor as a mouse. Believe me, I'd make this world wide if I could afford to. Stupid postage $$$.


Contest is open from NOW until Thanksgiving and will close to entries at 11:59 pm on Thanksgiving - November 24, 2011.


All I ask is that you follow me publicly in Google Friend Connect. That's it. Not much to ask in the grand scheme of things, eh?


To enter, leave a comment on THIS post with your first name/alias & email addy so I can contact the winner. ALSO leave your GFC name so I can verify you as a follower.


And per your comment, something besides the generic *thanks* would be nice. In fact, since I'm poor and really DO need to win the lottery, comment with your favorite LUCKY NUMBER [S].


So again: USA ONLY, GFC FOLLOW, NAME/ADDY & LUCKY NUMBER[S].


Not too hard or time consuming. Forget buttons, tweets, hops, skips, dingles and all the rest. No hoops to jump through here [... for NOW. heh heh heh].


Hurry and enter. You know you want some of this. ;D

  1. I've been looking for a great read to take home with me for Thanksgiving break, and I've heard great things about Bedbugs. If I'm not lucky enough to win the contest, then I'll definitely be downloading this one to my Kindle. Thanks for the chance to enter - I follow via GFC as guettel78.

    My lucky numbers are 78 and 96 - good luck!

  3. This looks so good. Creepy, but good lol. I've been trying to get my hands on it for a while now, so thank you for another chance at it! My lucky number is 18. If I ever make it to Vegas, I'll be spending quite a long time betting red 18 on the roulette wheel :)

  6. OH GOD. This book sounds interesting, but terrifying at the same time! Bedbugs are my one like super phobia! I'm always frightened that they'll appear in my house and all my stuff will have to be burned or something.

    That being said, I want to read the book (I'm such a weirdo)!

  7. @Eli - I'm right there with ya!!
    I LOVED reading Bedbugs, but for about two weeks I was checking every stupid fuzzy/crumb/gnat under a magnifying glass to make sure it wasn't a freaking bedbug ;P
    Oh, yeah - I'm so paranoid about accidentally bringing one home, etc and all my stuff being ruined. Especially my beloved books! :O

  12. New follow, but I am not entering the contest. One of the Libs at work read Bedbugs. She scratched herself raw while reading it. I will pass, but I love your blog and am glad to be following!

  13. @Javaintheam - Thank you for your sweet words and I am so glad you are following! Yes, I was fairly traumatised myself while reading Bedbugs - one of my worst phobias lol
    But it IS a terrific book, if you can get past the invisible itchies ;O
