Delirium ARC Contest!

Saturday! I would probably love it more if my office didn't look like this.
And I could show you more pictures revealing the general state of cleaning affairs that I will be engaged in all weekend...but I wouldn't even let my mother see us this way.

So, given that I obviously need something in the spirit of procrastination, I am having my very first contest!

Here is the goody. The ARC of Lauren Oliver's newest book, Delirium.

If you loved her first book Before I Fall as much as I did, you'll want this.

Now this is my first contest, but I do know all competitions have rules:
  1. Leave a comment to the effect, "Yes, I want it!"
  2. Follow this blog.
  3. If you post about this contest on your blog or twitter account and provide a link, I'll double your entry.
  4. Let me know in the comments how many entries you are entitled to.
The contest will run from now until Monday the 24th at 3:00pm (and just to be difficult, that's my time--Mountain)

Happy blogging!


  1. Clever girl. I thought I was already following you, since I added you to my blog link on my blog. Didn't realized I'd not clicked the "follow" on you blog. Duh.

    Yes, I want it.

    And I'll be happy to pimp your contest on my blog (not that I have that many followers). =D

  2. Thanks Donna! So that's two entries for you.

  3. I love the cover and I'm always looking for a good read so sign me up.

  4. Thanks Travis. You smell strangely like cinnamon jolly ranchers...hmmm.

    You were the first person to follow this blog and I just realized I never returned the favor (not that you have any problems in that area) it has now been remedied.

    Have a great day...

  5. Donna: I've done that same thing. Put someone on my bloglist and thought I was following them but I hadn't done that part.

    Becky: Love the shot of your desk. Did you get to do any playing in the kitchen?

  6. Hey Whisk! No playing today. Darling daughter did actually get a part in MCT play (Sleeping Beauty) so she has been otherwise engaged, the show is tonight.

    I'm loving your idea for the tie dyed cupcakes though...I'm thinking Sunday.

  7. What a wonderful giveaway (and fun way to procrastinate)! I've been trying to get my grubby paws on that ARC for a few months now.

    I'll tweet about this right now. :)

    Also, my house looks similarly disastrous. My husband knows that when the house is spotless something is not going well with my writing. Nothing like the 3rd round of revisions and having to face that damn chapter AGAIN, to make me start cleaning behind the refrigerator. Thus, a messy house is a happy house. :)

    Have a wonderful rest of your weekend,

  8. Thanks Lola! I hear you about the house. Although cleaning does, sometimes, help loosen my brain flow (and forget about submissions!)

  9. I loved Before I Fall! Can't wait to read Delirium!

    I followed.
    I tweeted.http://twitter.com/#!/laurapauling/status/28980268782063617

    Thanks for the chance! laurapauling@yahoo.com

  10. Hi Laura! I loved Before I Fall too. Thanks for coming by and for the tweet.

    That's two for you.

  11. Yes, I want it! My entire kitchen looks like your desk. Digging through the piles of papers is on my to-do list for tomorrow.

  12. Hi Susan! Somehow, it's makes me feel enormously better to know it's not just me. We can Hi Ho, Hi Ho together today.

  13. Before I Fall was so awesome. Please add me to your contest.

    I've posted about it on my blog too!

    Thanks so much for the contest.

  14. Hi Becky! I came over here from Kimberly's blog and was delighted to find that you're from Colorado too (I'm pretty much wedged between Denver and the Springs, so we're I-25 buddies). I'd love to win the book :)

  15. Hey Kimberly and Jess, I've got both of you in.

    Thanks Kimberly for posting to your blog that's extra for you.

    Jess, I love meeting people from CO! I check out your page.

  16. I am a new follower!

    I am also dying to read this! Thanks for the opportunity! :)

  17. Thanks for the opportunity to win Delirium! I'm already a follower and mentioned your contest on my blog.
