OctoberPalooza Begins: Stick by Andrew Smith

     It's easy to participate in OctoberPalooza, and it's free.
     Mission Statement: To give away copies of amazing books 
                                  To support independent bookstores
                                  To gain site traffic
     Rules: Leave a comment on any of the blogposts for one entry
               Follow the blog for one entry
               Follow and comment for three entries-comments can be on/about any previous posts as well as this post and posts this week.
               Obviously, the more entries you have, the more chances you have of winning.
               All entries between now and next Sunday, October 9th, 8:00 PM EST will be eligible for a drawing, in which randomly selected entries will win a copy of Andrew Smith's latest book, Stick, which gets released October 11.
              Winners will be announced here on Monday, October 10, and will have twenty-four hours to get back to me with contact info.
               I will take the info and send your book from Mrs. Nelson's Toy and Bookshop, an independent bookstore in California. Mrs. Nelson's ships only to United States and Canada, just so you know.

  1. The book trailer for STICK is intense. Andrew Smith is one of my favorite authors. *fingers crossed*

  2. This sounds amazing and I can't wait to read it.

  3. I can't wait for Stick to come out. I know that it will be a good read.

  4. Very excited for Stick. I'd like to read In The Path of Falling Objects first, though (I've read Marbury Lens and Ghost Medicine).

    Thanks for posting the trailer!
