SFIR presents...

Oh, no....
...it's coming...
....RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!


That's right!
It's that time of year.
We've reached October, one of my favorite months..and soon to be one of yours too!
Why?


Well, for starters, it's my birthday month!  Yep, why celebrate it for one day when you can have the entire month, right?  Second...I love FALL!  It's an awesome time of year and even though down here you don't get as much of the cool temps (though right now, they are pretty fantastic) or see as many leaves changing (or jump in piles of freshly racked leaves...a fun past time to be certain...), it's still pretty great.
What does all this mean for you?
Oh, you'll see....


This October....SFIR takes on a new meaning as

Satisfaction For Insatiable Readers

....becomes....

Spooktacular Finds In Reading!

*dun*dun*dunnnnnnnn*


Yep!
All this month we are going to be celebrating the season.  Every book reviewed this month will be tied into this time of year in one fashion or another (some being a tad more creative...hehe); from spooky to creepy, real horrors and those best left to fiction, there will be a little bit of everything.
So, are you ready to PAR-TY?
Oh, wait a second...I knew I forgot something.
I bet you want to know what beyond reviews and such you have to look forward to, huh?
Well since you were kind enough to stick with me this far into the post, here is your reward.

There will be....FOUR contests this month in conjunction with this celebration alone (that's not counting any other random beauties I can throw in along the way).  Each week a new prize pack will be unveiled giving you yet another chance to win.  Entries will be accepted through midnight CST on October 30th, 2010 with the winner announced on HALLOWEEN.  Now the prize packs will be open to US/Canada entries, HOWEVER there will be a special prize option open to our International friends only.

So...are you ready to kick it all off?
I sure hope so because....HERE WE GO!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Prize Pack #1
(US/Canada)


(1) size medium Vladimir Tod T-shirt
(front has the vamp smiley, back has the saying shown on the right)
(1) copy of How to Catch and Keep a Vampire by Diana Laurence
(my review....and a link to the book site)
(1) bookmark from the Evin Driscol Series:  The Chosen Historian by Rani Ertz
(...and just in case you're curious about the book, my review...)


How to enter:
Fill out the form by clicking HERE.




....and now for our INTERNATIONAL friends ONLY....



The prize:
(1) book of your choice from Book Depository up to $10



How to enter:
Fill out the form by clicking HERE.


--------------------------------------------------


Now on to the rules...
Let's keep them short and sweet shall we?
PRIZE PACKS are for those entering with US/CANADA mailing addresses ONLY.
BOOK DEPOSITORY PRIZE is for those entering with INTERNATIONAL mailing addresses ONLY and of course you have to be in one of the many many countries they ship to.
Entries will be accepted from October 1st, 2010 (or from the date each new prize is introduced) through midnight CST on October 30th, 2010.
The winners will hopefully be contacted and announced on HALLOWEEN, October 31st, 2010...but at the latest, Monday, November 1st, 2010.
If you do not include your mailing address in your entry, you will have 48 hours to respond to my email with it...otherwise, a new winner will be chosen.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


That's it!
So...off you go!
Spread the word...have some fun...and remember...

...until next time....happy reading!

I also love this time of year, the leaves on the trees are such a lovely colour and I don't feel guilty having a reading day wrapped in my duvet.

Thanks for another great giveaway, it's so kind of you to include us international bloggers. I've added you to the comp/giveaway page of my blog even if it does mean I have less chance of winning (Lol)

You know what, if I am to live in a four season country, I'm sure I'll fall in love with autumn. I heard that the view is very nice and yeah, I am somewhat jealous that you guys get the chance to lavish that :P
