California Diaries giveaway

You guys have no idea how excited I am to be able to do this.  After spending many months collecting, followed by many more months reviewing, I am giving away my entire California Diaries series to one lucky winner. I’m actually kind of sad about this, but I need every bit of space in my tiny condo that I can’t really afford to keep anything extraneous.  😦

That’s right.  All fifteen books. You read my reviews, now you can read the books and judge for yourselves.  This is pretty big, you know.  Those late numbered books aren’t that easy to find.

So how do you win this fabulousness?  Easy-peasy.

  1. Leave a comment saying you want to be entered for one entry.
  2. Link this contest elsewhere – your blog, twitter, etc for another entry.  Please leave me a second comment that you’ve done that.
  3. Subscribe to my blog for yet another entry.  Please leave me another separate comment that you’ve done that (or that you already do subscribe.)   Remember, I recently switched from Blogger to WordPress and I need you to subscribe HERE at WordPress to get that entry.
  4. Sit back and wait until approximately 2/14 for me to announce the winner, to be chosen by Random Number Generator.  (Side Note: I’m due to have a baby 2/25.  If I don’t announce it on the fourteenth, I may have delivered early.  Be patient – a chance to win these books is totally worth the wait, no?)
  5. Sorry international folks, US and Canada only.

Obviously, these books were all bought used.  The condition of each book is variable, though none of them are actually in bad condition.  No missing pages and no writing in the books, aside from a couple names written on title pages.

So, what are you waiting for? Start commenting.

*Also, I have extra copies of #s 3, 4, and 8.  Let me know if you want one of them and I’ll send it out, first come, first serve.

  2. Sadako says:

    Enter me!

    Plus, I’d love an extra copy of 3.

  3. Sadako says:

    I retweeted your tweet about it. So I guess that’s a second entry…

  4. Fear Street says:

    I would LOVE to be entered. I like reading your reviews of these and would love to read the series myself. I also linked to this on my blog (in the sidebar) and I subscribed.

    Nothing to do now but cross my fingers….

  5. Jessica says:

    Great giveaway! I made the mistake of lending the only ones I owned (mmm, 1-7, I think) to a friend who never returned them. 😦

  6. Alison says:

    Hurray! I only have 7, 10, and 11. So I would adore any others! (Like #3! If it’s still available, of course!)

  7. Alison says:

    And tweeted!

    And now I don’t remember which extra I mentioned being interested in. Whichever one wasn’t already claimed.

  8. Alison says:

    Okay. Last time. (I just subscribed so I’ll count this as another entry.)

    I meant book 4. But I think you figured that out. And this is why I wish I need to be able to edit comments.

  9. I’d like to enter the contest!

    And if #8 is still available, I’d like it!

  13. Rebecca says:

    I’d like to be entered too \o/

    I’d retweet, but my tweets are protected, so that doesn’t count if I do it, right? If you have your own Twitter I could add you so you can see when i retweet it lol.

  15. Fran says:

    Guys look!!!! If only I was searching for them back in 2011 and not in 2014 I might have had a chance to win the whole set! Man, it really is tough searching for theses books at a good price and good condition.
