Free Book Bonanza!

If you stayed at home to avoid Black Friday and decided to do a little blog crawling instead, today is your lucky day.  And all weekend!  I've dug through the VampChix stocks of review copies and have a huge pile to give away.  (Most books we receive more than one copy or just don't have time to review them all.  Or sometimes we have giveaways and people don't claim their prizes within two weeks, so we have to give the book away again.)  And what do you have to do to win?  Just comment!  Leave us a love note, or let us know what you did buy today, or that you avoided the pepper spray and stayed at home.  We'll announce winners next Tuesday, so enter today through Monday! Open to everyone, no matter where you live.

Here are the prizes you may win (1 per person unless a set):

FROM RUSSIA WITH BLOOD by Michael Lee (downloadable copy)
ECSTASY UNTAMED by Pamela Palmer
THE WATERS RISING by Sheri S. Tepper
JANE AND THE DAMNED by Janet Mullany
PLAYING WITH FIRE by Michele Hauf (download; not avail until Dec 1st)
THE INHERITANCE & OTHER STORIES by Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm
THIRTEEN YEARS LATER by Jasper Kent (ARC copy)
EVOLVE TWO edited by Nancy Kilpatrick
EXTINCTION AGENDA by Marcus Pelegrimas
PALE DEMON by Kim Harrison
Random copies of A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS will be mailed with some prizes.

Be sure to stop in on Tuesday to see if you've won!  We can't send you your prize if we don't hear from you to get your address.  And guess what?  We do try to contact you if you don't contact us, but if you don't have an email in your profile, well then.  Two weeks, people!  And then the prize goes back in the pile for the next bonanza.  ;-)

I had a great day NOT shopping. I read and played on my computer instead. That's how I spend Black Friday every year. Thanks for the giveaway, it's very sweet.

I renamed it Writing Black Friday, stayed and finished my edits for second book. I do not participate in the shopping mess. I leave that to the lunatics out there!

Sofija Kapranova said...

I stayed home and enjoyed some quiet time))) Thanks for great giveaway!

buddyt said...

I am International so didn't even have to think about Black Friday.

Don't know if I am glad or envious about that !

Anyway, THE INHERITANCE & OTHER STORIES by Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm caught my eye and as I love her novels I would dearly like to get this collection of short stories.

Please enter me.

I have to admit that I had no idea what black friday was untill I saw it mentioned on a couple of the blogs I follow, particularly yours :)Here in the UK I spent the day watching Masters Finals tennis in London.
Fantastic array of books you are giving away,thank you for the chance to win one.

Jet said...

We don't have "Black Friday" here in Australia, which is good for my bank balance lol
Thanks for the opportunity!


Diana said...

We don't have Black Friday in my country , I hadn't even heared about Black Friday before.
Thank you for the great giveaway!

My boyfriend and I bought and installed a railing for my Mom's basement stairs. And I bought my boyfriend a new birdfeeder. Hardware stores are really quiet on Black Friday.

Lil said...

I have never experienced
Black Friday but am very curious. This year, the decision was taking out of my hands because I was on duty for work.

ilona said...

After reading all the negative stuff online about Black Friday I am glad I don't live in the USA. Mind you, as my preffered method of shopping for anything other than groceries, is to use the internet maybe I wouldn't get caught by Black Friday anyway :D

Maegan Morin said...

Black Friday scares the cr*p out of me... I get wanting a good deal but I saw people mob each other over waffle makers on the news... SCARY!! Glad I dont have to worry about it!

You could not pay me to go shopping on Black Friday!

elaing8 said...

We don't have Black Friday here. But its scary some of the news reports I saw.Online shopping is the way to go.
Thanks for the giveaway

I ♥ Book Gossip said...

I avoided the crowd this year. Please count me in.

cait045 said...

I did go out but avoided the crazy crowds by going out later. I wanted to get my mom a kindle for xmas since I love mine so much.


mortiana said...

Wow--what a great line up of books.
Tasty! I'd love to win any of them. Had a chance to work 8 hours on Black Friday--have been out of work for two months looking for job, so I jumped on that work day.
Happy holidays to all!

tetewa said...

I worked on on Black Friday, wasn't to bad! Thanks for the giveaway!

June M. said...

There is no way I am going out on Black Friday! I have panic attacks in crowds anyway so I would really be freakin' out in that mess! Much rather stay home with a good book.

I live in Australia so no Black Friday for me, but since I've got a foot in a cast I've been doing a lot of reading, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Megan@Riverina Romantics said...

Great Giveaway!

As for Black Friday...I make it a point not to go anywhere on Black Friday. People are psychotic on Black Friday!

Roni said...

I stayed safely at home and ate left over pie. Why would anyone want to do anything else.

miki said...

Wow!! This sure beats standing in line getting beat up, pepper-sprayed, shoved, cold, hungry, tired, etc ;D

We NEVER do the Black Friday thing, tho. I think it takes a lot of the fun & joy out of the season, at least for me.

Thank you oodles for the EPIC giveaway!!

Lexi said...

I did the Black Friday expiernece once, and decided I was a better Internet shopper. I do love Christmas shopping though, it's so easy to get carried away =)

What an awesome stack of books! That makes a very generous giveaway!

Chelsea B. said...

Thank you for the AMAZING givaway! I didn't do the whole Black Friday thing. I'm just not brave enough


erin said...

AWESOME giveaway! I usually do the Black Friday shopping but this year I decided to do it all online (in protest of stores opening at midnight) and it worked better than I thought! No more standing in line! No more threats of violence from random strangers! *happydance*

And then I go blog hopping and find a wonderful and generous giveaway! Score! :)

Having a great weekend hope you are too.


CrystalGB said...

I avoided the Black Friday shopping. Thanks for the great giveaway.

Marlene said...

I skipped all the crowds and craziness and stayed home. I read Ilona Andrews Magic Bites. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

lisagk said...

Passed on all of the shopping crowds on Black Friday and did Disney World with son, his GF, her parents, and their two LITTLE ones. It was fun, but still a bit crowded. Then started the long trip back to Texas on Saturday, after lunch. Hope everyone's holidays were as wonderful as ours.

Sharon said...

Living in Oz so was very upset I couldn't be a part of black Friday. Sounds very spooky though doesn't it "black friday". Do the vamps also come out?

Cylver said...

I work in retail, so the last thing I want to do on Black Friday is go shopping. Especially after work!
So, after a fun-filled day at the store, I went home, made hot chocolate, and enjoyed my evening, and didn't buy a thing!

DarkBloodyVamp said...

WOW this sounds great!

Thanks for the giveaway!

No Black Friday shopping for me.

Neat titles:)
Thanks for the givaway


Vickie said...

We avoid the typical Black Friday, but I do like to drive by the parking lots and lines of people waiting to get in and crash into each other with carts.

We started our own tradition a few years ago. We go over to a nearby town and shop at an artists' co-op called pARTiculars. We get our decorations to add to our collection and to give as gifts. Then we go next door to an antique store to meander. Then off to one of our favorite nurseries and pick out our Christmas tree.

I went into work that night and placed a book order to High Crimes Mystery Bookshop.

I like to shop, just don't like the crowds and I'd rather shop local.
