Giveaway: Cleaning Out the Bookshelves-16 Books

Hi there all.  I am swimming in books at home and my bookcase, nightstand, dresser, and husband are all threatening me because of the overload!  I thought my loss could be your gain, so I’ve decided to give away sixteen books that I’ve either read or I know I’m never going to pick up.  See below for the titles. I’m calling this my Cleaning Out the Bookshelves Giveaway.   All but three are hardcovers.  The three that are paperback are listed with (p) by the title.  A lot of these are signed by the author, indicated with (s) by the title.  But so sorry, they are signed to me (Rachel).  I’m limiting this giveaway to the United States so that I’m not bankrupted by the postage.  Sorry my international friends.

  45. LOL What ONE book is sitting on my shelf? Um, how about what 100 books are sitting on my shelves? Well, the ones I feel most guilty about are the ones that were given to me as gifts from other bloggers that I need to get to so I don't feel like a crap friend. Code Name Verity, Taste of a Man, and a few others. Could I use 16 more to stare at? Heck yes I could:)

  61. Oh my gosh, my dresser is overflowing with books too. My husband keeps staring at them and asking when I'm going to do something about it. When Borders closed I bought a book called Slayed by Amanda Marrone. I swear I'm going to get to it. And I know it hasn't been that long, but I bought Onyx the day it came out & it's just sitting in my kindle. 'm dying to get to that one, too.
