Mail call!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're delving into the past for a post to share a few new arrivals on my doorstep; some of my own doing, others the blogs doing.


Ooh...what do I see here?
Why the VERY BOOKS YOU CAN ENTER TO WIN RIGHT HERE ON THE SITE!  So, what are you waiting for?  Oh, right...the rest of the post.  ^_^

These little beauties arrived for review.  The first is scheduled for later this year, the second, an unexpected arrival.  Still, BOTH sound pretty darn cool and the cover on that second one, LOVE IT!

These arrived due to my own shopping habits.  Don't judge, you know you do it too.  I mean how could I resist grabbing a second copy of the first one; my other was in paperback!  Anywho, feast your eyes on these gems and then feel free to add to your own wish lists.

Oh and before you go, what'd YOU find this weekend/week?
Do tell!

Until next time....happy reading!

Make some #NoiseforNess with a Candlewick Press GIVEAWAY!

Hi guys!
Happy Monday to you and welcome back to another exciting week here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.  Today's post is akin to the advice you were given as a child about not having dessert before your dinner because you'd be too full to eat the good stuff.  Now, it doesn't involve food per se but it compares as easily because although it's the START of a new week, I'm kicking it off with DESSERT....or rather a CONTEST!

That's right!
Thanks to the fabulous folks over at Candlewick Press, I've been given the opportunity to giveaway a SET of FOUR Patrick Ness books!  Feel free to, I shan't join you as I already got mine out of my system when I received the email.  *hehehe* celebrate the re-release of his Chaos Walking trilogy consisting of The Knife of Never Letting Go, The Ask and the Answer, and Monsters of Men (with brand spanking new covers!) and the official paperback release of More Than This, YOU have a chance to WIN THEM ALL!  Yes, you read that right.  The prize is not one, not two...but FOUR books from an author whose work has been celebrated the world over.

To enter, all you have to do is use the Rafflecopter below and BAM!  You're in it to win it.  The contest will run through midnight August 8th, 2014 and is open to US residents; no P.O. Boxes please.

So remember, make some #NoiseforNess throughout the blogosphere and beyond to celebrate the bookish achievements of author Patrick Ness and spread the word on great additions to anyone's wish list.

Special thanks to Raquel over at Candlewick Press for the chance to bring this celebration to you.  (THANKS!)  For more information on these titles as well as their full catalog, be sure to stop by their official site, like them on Facebook, or follow along on Twitter.

Until next time...GOOD LUCK...and happy reading!

World’s Best Story: Rewarding readers and book bloggers for telling the world they found a great story!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers....the place where bookish is the NORM, every day of the week.  Today, I am really excited to tell you about an innovative new contest platform for both readers and writers. Laura Fabiani of iRead Book Tours is now a proud sponsor for World’s Best Story!

More and more authors and writers are discovering the power of readers. Books are written for the reader audience, so why not have a say in telling others we think a writer’s story has blockbuster potential? That’s what World’s Best Story allows you to do.

In view of this, I hope you will join me in helping to spread the word and to sign up as a member of World’s Best Story to find talented storytellers and get great prizes. 

But first let me tell you more about World’s Best Story.

World’s Best Story was launched at BookExpo America on May 28. It’s the first social contest to reward readers and writers with exclusive partner prizes. So what does this mean for you?

If you are a writer:

1. Submit your story. Entering is free and the entry period ends Aug 12.
2. Prizes include publishing contracts, celebrity master classes, trademark and IP protection, book tours, big box retail distribution, PR and marketing support and more!
3. Top ten finalists and grand prize winner will be announced at the Toronto International Book Fair on November 15, 2014.

If you are a reader:

1. You get the chance to be the judge, discover new stories and win great prizes.
2. When you sign up to become a member, you automatically get $10 to spend at Beyond the Rack. Signing up is easy, requiring only your name and email.
3. When you rate and vote you’ll get a chance to win cool prizes, and the grand prize package includes a $2000 shopping spree at Beyond the Rack!

So how can you help spread the word? There are several ways:
  • Write a post about it and you can enter in a giveaway for a $20 Amazon gift card and one of 6 $25 Beyond the Rack Gift Cards
  • Add the World’s Best Story logo on your blog with a link back to their site.
  • If you are an iRead tour host, your post will count toward your incentive program if you do the above.
  • If you are not yet an iRead tour host, join and you will qualify for the incentive program
  • Tell all your readers about WBS through social media networking.
