Win a Copy “The Host” from Stephenie Meyer

the host

Would you like to win a copy of “The Host” byStephenie Meyer? Well, of course you do!  If you don’t know what this book is about, here is some info about it:

The author of the Twilight series of # 1 bestsellers delivers her brilliant first novel for adults: a gripping story of love and betrayal in a future with the fate of humanity at stake.

Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away. The earth has been invaded by a species that take over the minds of their human hosts while leaving their bodies intact, and most of humanity has succumbed.

Wanderer, the invading “soul” who has been given Melanie’s body, knew about the challenges of living inside a human: the overwhelming emotions, the too vivid memories. But there was one difficulty Wanderer didn’t expect: the former tenant of her body refusing to relinquish possession of her mind.

Melanie fills Wanderer’s thoughts with visions of the man Melanie loves-Jared, a human who still lives in hiding. Unable to separate herself from her body’s desires, Wanderer yearns for a man she’s never met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Featuring what may be the first love triangle involving only two bodies, THE HOST is a riveting and unforgettable novel that will bring a vast new readership to one of the most compelling writers of our time.

Would you like to win a copy of “Boneman’s Daughter” by Ted Dekker on audio? Here is some info about the book:

Sent to Fallujah and captured by insurgents, he is asked to kill children not unlike his own. The method: a meticulous, excruciating death by broken bones that his captor has forced him to learn.

Returning home after the ordeal, a new crisis awaits. A serial killer is on the loose, and his method of killing is the same. Ryan becomes a prime suspect, which isn’t even the worst of his problems: Ryan’s daughter is BoneMan’s latest desire.

In a story that is devaststing in its skill and suspense, – Ted Dekker brings to bear his ability to terrify and compel in BONEMAN’S DAUGHTERS.

The “I Suck at Challenges” Challenge

i-suck-at-challenges

Seriously – how can you not love a challenge like this?  I am continuing to sign up for more challenges, and I think that is why I signed up as a 12 stepper.  Here are the details:

Categories?

The Slackers
(Aka “I will finish the Canadian Reading Challenge, I swear”)

I try not to sign up for too many reading challenges but even when I commit to one or two I can’t seem to complete them. Last year, I failed miserably at the 1st Canadian Reading Challenge. It appears I’m heading down the same path. Are you like me? Then you are a Slacker.

Join The Slackers if there are a couple particular challenges you are having trouble completing or you know you’ll have trouble completing due to your track record. (Only count ongoing challenges that have deadlines of more than 3 months away, you are waaaaaay behind and you are particularly lazy. There’s no shame in admitting it.)

The 12 Steppers
(Aka “I can stop whenever I want.”)

There’s a challenge. You see it. Your palms start to sweat. Mr Linky mocks you. You try to stop yourself but it’s too late. You’ve committed yourself to Books That Start With Q Challenge and you know you’ll do it again when the next challenge comes along. The only thing is, how are you ever going to complete them all? Sound like you? Then you are a 12 Stepper. No program is going to help you though; you’re addicted.

Join The 12 Steppers if you’ve signed up for more reading challenges than you can handle.

When?

Sign up anytime between now and February 1, 2009. The challenge ends July 1, 2009.

How?

Leave a comment on this post with a link to your challenge post. Tell me if you are a Slacker or a 12 Stepper and list your challenges.

Then what?

At the end of the month, starting in February, I’ll put up a post calling for your progress. Leave a comment telling us if you’ve completed a challenge (link to your completed challenge post), if you’re struggling with any and what ones, or if the challenge deadline came and went and you never finished.

At the first of every month I’ll put up a post to record your progress. I’ll encourage everyone to visit each other and cheer you on.

Any incentives?

Sure, why not? If you sign up by February 1st, I’ll pick a name in a drawing for a little something, like a cute bookmark or something along that line. On July 1st, I’ll once again draw once again from the sign in post for a “Surprise” package (it’s a surprise to me too since I’ll be collecting things throughout the months) of book related do-dads. No penalties if you don’t complete all your challenges but please at least try!

Okay, so procrastinators unite! Together we will finish challenges we commit to. Join and add the button to your blog. Have fun!

To join, click here.

My challenges so far are:

666 Reading Challenge
Feelin’ Chunky ’09
TBR Reading Challenge (by Avidreader)

This list keeps growing and hopefully I’ll have most of them picked by the end of the weekend.

Little Pink House by Jeff Benedict Audio Giveaway

little-pink-house

Thanks to Anna Balasi of Hachette Book Group I will be giving away 3 copies of this book (it will be an audiobook).  To enter, please leave a comment but remember it will only be open to residents of the US and Canada and we will not be able to ship to P.O. Boxes.  This contest will end January 24th.  Good Luck!

About the Book:

Suzette Kelo was just trying to rebuild her life when she purchased a falling down Victorian house perched on the waterfront in New London, CT. The house wasn’t particularly fancy, but with lots of hard work Suzette was able to turn it into a home that was important to her, a home that represented her new found independence.

Little did she know that the City of New London, desperate to revive its flailing economy, wanted to raze her house and the others like it that sat along the waterfront in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and fourteen neighbors flat out refused to sell, so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes, launching one of the most extraordinary legal cases of our time, a case that ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court.

In Little Pink House, award-winning investigative journalist Jeff Benedict takes us behind the scenes of this case — indeed, Suzette Kelo speaks for the first time about all the details of this inspirational true story as one woman led the charge to take on corporate America to save her home.

Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner Audio Giveaway

geography-of-bliss

Here’s another great giveaway – thanks again Anna!  I will be giving away 3 copies of this book on January 24th.  Again, it is only open to residents of the US and Canada and we are unable to ship to P.O. Boxes…sorry:(  Please make sure to leave a valid email address so I can contact you if you win.  Thanks again and good luck!

About the Book:

Part foreign affairs discourse, part humor, and part twisted self-help guide, The Geography of Bliss takes the reader from America to Iceland to India in search of happiness, or, in the crabby author’s case, moments of “un-unhappiness.” The book uses a beguiling mixture of travel, psychology, science and humor to investigate not what happiness is, but where it is. Are people in Switzerland happier because it is the most democratic country in the world? Do citizens of Qatar, awash in petrodollars, find joy in all that cash? Is the King of Bhutan a visionary for his initiative to calculate Gross National Happiness? Why is Asheville, North Carolina so damn happy? With engaging wit and surprising insights, Eric Weiner answers those questions and many others, offering travelers of all moods some interesting new ideas for sunnier destinations and dispositions.
