The 1st Annual Got Books? Event has ARRIVED!

Welcome everyone!
Today is the day that you've all been waiting for as Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers is proud to present the FIRST annual ....

Glitter Text - http://www.sparklee.com


As a co-conspirator behind this (what has become a massive) event, I'd like to take a quick second to thank you...my readers, fellow bloggers, and all the bookish (and non-bookish) folks that take a moment of their time to visit my site, read the posts, enter the contests, leave comments and the like.  It is much appreciated so thank you from my bookish heart to yours.

Second a quick shout out to my partner in crime for this event...Danielle from There's A Book.  Working together, we were able to see this event come full circle, from idea to project to oh-my-word-look-how-big-it-is and finally to what you see before you (well, not just here, of course, but the site itself).  Thank you Danielle for all your assistance and great feedback sessions even in the wee hours of the morning (yes, we were working the day shift, night shift, graveyard shift...may have invented a new shift even....to get this one done).  I hope everyone has a blast!

Enough of this mushy show of emotion....on with the show!
May I present my contribution to the contest portion of this event, which I am calling the....


"Series"-ously Awesome Contest!

That's right!
Why is it "series"-ously awesome?
I'm glad you asked.
We all love a good series, as in multiple books that form an overall story...and that's what I aim to bring you the chance to win in this contest.  Below you will find a picture of the books up for grabs....


Pretty huh?
Each of the titles featured can be read as a stand alone if you'd like, or simply used to whet your appetite to indulge in the series.
Let's take a closer look...

Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow
It's sequel, Innocent, was just released this year.
For a sneak peek...my review.

The Year of Disappearances by Susan Hubbard
Book two in a series that just had it's third installment released this month...haven't had the pleasure of reading this one quite yet, but here's a peek at book one...my review...

Powers by John B. Olson
Book two in this series....

The Brain Full of Holes by Martin Chatterton
Book two in a very fun children's series....definitely works on it's own, but why would you want to miss the other installment?  My review of book one, and two....

Spaceheadz by Jon Scieszka (ARC)
Book one is this series...just released this year too...sneak peek anyone?  My review...

Alice in Wonderland and Philosophy by William Irwin and Richard Brian Davis
So it's not your typical series, but it IS part of a series of books that explores popular culture in philosophy...so see, it works...and a sneak peek with my review...

The Ranger's Apprentice, Book 2:  The Burning Bridge by John Flanagan
Book two in this popular children's series....it's a hardback, minus the protective cover, plus a small black marker mark on the bottom, otherwise GREAT condition, but it does have one advantage.....IT'S SIGNED!  Yup!


The ones listed above are open to US entries only...but don't worry, I didn't forget all those worldwide readers out there....
This next one is open to one and all...
