Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - giveaway

***sticky post - will remain at top until 09/15***

I was asked if I would like to host a giveaway for 3 copies of Catching Fire, the second book in the YA series The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins . I had heard of the books but had not read the first yet. So, I asked some of my friends. Several had either read the book and enjoyed it or knew teenagers who really enjoyed it. So that made up my mind! Sure...why not host the give away.

Here's the info on the giveaway, but please scroll down further after you read this and read some more info on the book.

Three (3) lucky winners will receive:
* Limited edition promotional t-shirt
* collectible mocking jay pin
* a copy of Catching Fire
* You have from Sept 1 - Sept 15 to enter

To enter: Please fill out the form below. I do ask for your mailing address, but rest assuried it is safe and will not be shared with anybody unless you win. If you are a winner, I will only share it with my contact since they will be mailing out the items.
(The Catching Fire book promotion is open to participants with a United States mailing address only (international readers can enter if you have a friend in the States who can accept your prizes by mail!). Entrants under age 13 must have parent or guardian permission to enter.)

(The contest is officially closed - Thanks to all who entered)

The official website is here.

Here's a bit about the book:


Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.

In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love.

and...what I think is super cool......click HERE to read the first chapter!!!!!!

Oh..and wonder what the t-shirt looks like, you're in luck! see image below.
