200 Followers + Stamped Mockingjay Giveaway

I know you've all probably heard just about as much as you can handle about Mockingjay coming out today. I have just a little more to add to it, and I'll leave ya in peace.

As of this past weekend, I successfully have over 200 followers to my little blog here through Google Friend Connect. I figured that was cause for celebration, no?

Then I had a realization - I was going to the official Mockingjay release party in NYC, so I should get an extra copy to give away!! So, here's a few pictures from last night and I will put the giveaway form at the bottom of this post.

It was a crazy night of raffles, hundreds of people, and one wonderful book. I got there a bit late (around 10pm), so my number was really high. I had to wait around for a while at the end to get my copy of the book. But it was worth it because the crowd around Suzanne Collins wasn't as insane.

The first picture is of the stamp she put in every book. Pretty cool, huh? The second is of Suzanne Collins stamping the person's book in front of me.
Can I just say, too, that her reading of the first part of the book was almost magical?! I mean, it's a wonderfully written book as it is, but to hear the author read it is amazing. I couldn't get close enough to get a picture of her reading (I wasn't about to force myself to the front of the crowd. Yikes!) But it was a wonderful event all around. Kuddos to Books of Wonder for hosting it!

Okay, so here's the info about my giveaway:
I am giving away one stamped copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I will also include several of the tattoos and bookmarks - and even a few Hunger Games related puzzles (word search, crossword).

The giveaway will run for one week and one week only - I want the winner to get their hands on the copy asap. Perhaps if I have a huge turnout I will add a couple of things.

Here are a few rules:
1. Giveaway is open to residents of the USA only. I don't have the funds to send internationally. Sorry :(.
2. You must complete the form below (don't leave information in the comments - it will not count!)
3. Giveaway ends September 1, 2010 at 11:59 EST.
4. Once the winner is selected, they will have 48 hours to respond to my email or another winner will be selected (Check your spam filters!)

Can I say that I'm totally jealous? Because I am. I don't fangirl about celebrities unless they are authors and well - I'm jealous. I can't wait till my copy arrives so I can sink my teeth into it. The challenge will be to avoid all the spoilers floating around. Have fun reading!
