FEBRUARY BOOK GIVEAWAY!

Yep, it's that time again. Time for a book you can get for free without lifting a finger (ok, well, you'll have to lift a few fingers in order to comment, but it's a lot better than forking over some dough!) So what do I have for you this time?


I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore


Why not read the book before you go see the movie? There were nine of them...but someone or something is systematically hunting them all down. They are all that is left standing between humanity and ruination. Three are dead. Number four is left - and next in line to die.


I thought maybe I'd chuck this one out there since the movie is due out the 18th. I also thought it was pretty impressive that this book got picked up so quickly to be turned into a movie. Some books take decades before they're noticed by Hollywood. I Am Number Four has been out 6 months, tops. And I think even that is stretching it. They sent the ARC (advance reading copy) to our store and I took one look at it and thought, "Ooh." Now I'll pass it on to you.


All you have to do is comment. Anywhere on this blog. Be sure to include your email address or some way for me to contact you if you've won. The contest will run until February 22nd, which gives you time to see the movie if you're the type that likes to do that before reading the book.


**Note: Please understand that because this ARC came through my place of work, in order to keep people from reselling them, the edges of the book have been marked (the way libraries or publishers do with remainder books) with "ARC." If you like your ARCs completely clean, it's best not to enter this contest. :)



Haven't seen the trailer for I Am Number Four yet? Well then, here you go!






This is the new cover the book has recently been released with. The copy you receive will be paperback and be the image at the beginning of this post.

James Frey had his hand in co-writing the story, and it was kind of developed as a film and book at the same time, hence why the movie's out so quickly.

What's the deadline for entering the giveaway?

Nicole said...

Ah. I'd read his name was in it, but didn't think that had any connection to the film speed.

Deadline is Feb. 22nd.

It does seem like this book and movie came out of no where, but that makes it even more exciting! I would love to get my hands on a copy of the book, it sounds like just my kind of adventure. The movie looks amazing, too!

Tessa said...

My general rule is that I refuse to see the movie until I have read the book. Most of the time, I am sorely disappointed in the movie (i.e. The Twilight Saga) making me wish I had skipped the book, there are exceptions, though (Dear John). Thanks for the giveaway. You rock!!

Considering what the prize is, I would have entered if the book was a clean copy and it was with the movie poster cover.. Since it isn't, count me out. I can always read the book for free at a bookstore or library. If I decide to buy the book, I will. Thanks anyway.

I always enjoy reading the book first. I do have to say I agree with others; some movies made from the books are a disapointment. I have to say though I read the Harry Potter series and in the book and movie both made me hate that Deloris Umbridge lady. I feel the best book to movie is The Lord Of The Rings series. There where some minor differences but they stayed pretty true to eachother. Well anyways bye bye for now and my e-mail is sillygirl2000@gmail.com

My daughter is an avid reader and just finished the book for a school project. She loved it and is looking forward to the movie. She had to make a game related to the plot. Pretty cool idea for a 6th grade project. I look forward to reading and discussing with her. Thanks! justinrturner@hotmail.com

The book sounds promising to me and I would love to read it. Based on the trailers I've seen, I don't think the movie will do too well.

I cannot wait to see this movie. I really think the kid looks to old to be in high school. I am seeing it for the Glee girl. I did see all the HArry Potter movies and after Deathly Hallows PT1 came out I went and read every book in 1.5 weeks. So I think the movie looks like I am going to be reading the books. Thanks

Till date, except 'LOTR' none of the movies have been as good as the books!

Of course I am sure the web site is not really encouraging me into piracy, as the film is not released in the UK until 23rd February so the only way I can see the film before 22nd is to down load a pirate version.

Hi Nicole!
I didn't know the movie was based on a book until I read this post (you did good posting it on imdb), but as calico-reaction wrote, it's actually kind of siamese twins, so maybe I'll see the movie before reading the book. Usually the book fill in the blanks where needed (I'm sooo glad I read twilight before seeing the movie...).
I would love to get the book, would it be inconvenient sending it to Israel? (: just kidding, my brother lives in USA, so it won't be a problem. Hope I'm not late for this giveaway, fingers crossed.
