Free Books for the Taking!

Posted by Laura Losch on July 20, 2008

I found some sites out there that are giving away books and other cool stuff. Check these out: On this site you can enter to win the book Gone by Michael Grant AND a Sony PSP system! They are having a “Beach Bag of Books Contest”. You can win beach gear and some good books! Hurry though, it ends soon! If you sign up for any of their newsletters (you can find them under “newsletters”), you can win some cool stuff! This contest just involves sending an e-mail to enter! There are plenty on this site, so check them out!

And now for the COOLEST contest out there: You can enter to win 4 tickets to The City of Ember movie premiere. If you haven’t read The City of Ember or any of the books in this series, stop by the media center on the first day of school and check them out! It’s a great book and I’m sure it’s going to be a great movie! I’m really excited, can you tell?

See you on August 7th!  🙂
