A Giveaway!

I'm a lover of books. All kinds. Fiction, non-fiction, short books, long books, coffee table books...

So when I was contacted by Campus Book Rentals to giveaway $50 credit to one of you, my loyal, sweet readers, I was beyond elated. Whether or not you're in college at the moment is irrelevant -- You can rent those books you've always meant to read. Or explore topics you've always been interested in reading about beyond the wikipedia page. ;)

For instance...
I read this book for Econ but would highly recommend it to all.
Or Stephen King's memoir about writing.
(This would be pretty fascinating to read, too!)

Of course, if you're getting ready for upcoming semesters, an extra $50 for textbooks never hurt, am I right?

Just leave a comment about what you'd use the $50 credit for, and I'll pick a winner at random on Friday, June 7th. 

Good Luck!


Update: Using, Celeste was picked as our winner! Thanks for participating, everyone!
Pin It Now!


  1. I have a crazy long list of books to read. I still want to read Gone Girl, or perhaps something more classic written by Austen.

    1. I'm leaving for Seattle U in the fall. I'd love to have a bit of extra money to check out books to read in cozy coffee shops in the rain! :)

  2. Oh this is the best giveaway ever! I sometimes need to forbid myself to go into bookstores or on amazon, because I always come out with new books and no money, so this would be brilliant!

  3. I lost my most prized books during hurricane sandy when my house flooded, so I have SO many books I'd love to have again!

  4. I would get the remaining Anne Lamott books for my collection as she is one of my soul mates. And the new Pioneer Woman cookbook because she is fabulous. :)

  5. I would gift it to my roommate who has spent hours in every thrift store and library in town to get hold of books she could add to her priceless collection.

  6. There are so many books I would LOVE to get... I always regret not keeping some of my required religion class textbooks. I didn't appreciate all that knowledge when I took the classes, but I feel like I would love them now!


    Children's books! I love reading books and have a million titles to read over the summer. Okay maybe not a million. However, I do have a goal of reading 30 novels in YA or Upper Grade books.

    This last year I have also gotten into reading popular adult books. So there are a lot on my list to get. One book I hope to read is The Worst Hard TImes by Tmothy Egan. The author will be coming to KU this fall.

    Believe me I would have not problem using the gift card the problem is that I would double it and spend more, too much more on books.

    Read every day.... reading takes you places!!

  8. Oh, I have an INSANE summer reading-for-fun list right now! Top of the list: All the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Housseini, Inferno by Dan Brown, The Best Women's Travel Writing by Lavinia Spalding

  9. Oh I love books :D Walking through the library almost overwhelms me though because there are so many books to be read that I haven't even touched. My fiance loves to write, and he is trying to write his very first book. I would use the giftcard to surprise him with that book by Stephen King: On Writing. He would be elated :)!!

  10. I love reading. I have a long list of books I want to read. I would use the gift card to get the new Khaled Housseini book as well as Gone girl, What Alice Forgot and Revenge Wears Prada.

  11. My sister is in college -- I'd let her use it for textbooks!

Besides book stores, my favorite shops are ones that sell pens & paper!
