Book Extravaganza: Giveaway Time!


As part of the Book Extravaganza, which is being hosted by Kate of The Neverending Shelf and Kristen of Bookworming in the 21st Century, I am offering a little giveaway. I absolutely love these two blogs and admire all of their hard work and effort in providing fun and entertaining book-blog information and activities.

So, I am giving away one copy of Jandy Nelson's The Sky is Everywhere. I chose this book for its unique structure and the way that poetry was woven throughout the text. For this giveaway, you need to share the name of a favorite poet in the comments section of this post.

Because I loved this book so well, I'd like to offer every one of you a copy. Of course, my bank account will not allow for such extravagant antics. I can offer up one copy of this book to one lucky, randomly selected winner from the US. (Sorry International folks; check out my giveaway for Linger and enter if you haven't already!)

To enter, simply fill out this form and leave your answer to the poetry question in the comments section of this post.

This giveaway will only be open for the weekend, so please enter before midnight (EST) on July 18th.

  27. I know it's kinda cliche, but my favorite poet is Edgar Allen Poe. I love the rhythm of his poetry, especially of The Bells (it's so much fun to read aloud!); but my favorite one is Alone because it made me see a loved one's situation from a different point of view.

  40. I've heard such great things about this book, and I've been meaning to try and get my hands on a copy for awhile now.
    I love poetry, and am generally NOT a rhymey person, so it's a bit surprising that Edna St. Vincent Millay is my fave. She's very rhymey, but she's also very interesting.
