In My Mailbox (9) & Second Hand Saturday! A Book-A-Week Giveaway #47!

We decided that since we do Second Hand Saturday every week, and we've started doing In My Mailbox, that we would try out combining the two.  If you're only here for IMM, feel free to skip the giveaway, and just watch the video.  If you're here for Second Hand Saturday, this week's challenge is to WATCH THE VIDEO and answer the question in the form.


Thanks to Harlequin Teen, Tor, Disney Hyperion, and to Borders for closing one store so I could get awesome books, and keeping another open so I don't die :D


(If you've been here before, scroll down for this week's challenge in red)
Welcome to Second Hand Saturday!!

Every Saturday, we will post the books available, and the following Saturday, we will announce the winner and our next challenge. The winner will get to choose a book from the list and we will ship it to that lucky person! Each week we will have a different challenge to complete (see below). YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER TO ENTER!  Open Internationally.  Ends at 10:00 pm EST the following Friday!

 Email me at ReadingTeen1 at with your book choice!!  Please put "winner" in the subject line.  You have a week to claim your prize!

ATTENTION!! If you win and you'd like multiple books in the same series (Like all the books in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series etc.) (if we have them) and are willing to pay the shipping, we will ship them all to you! (It's too expensive for us to do it ourselves!)

    I answered the question in the form

  31. Thanks for another fun vlog. I'm going to the form now.

  32. So jealous of from bad to cursed.. I loved the first book.

  33. This is my first time in your blog. I saw it from another blogger's site and decided to check it out since I LOVE to read (vampire) books. I think it would be exciting to discover more books through your blog so I decided to follow. And you do giveaways! I answered the form, I don't know if I'm supposed to comment my answer to the question or not. Haha. But I guess no one else is doing it so I won't either. :) Cheers!

  34. Just a note: I filled in the form twice b/c the first time I got the answer wrong, kinda... So sorry about that. :)

  35. That Wither cover is so gorgeous!

  36. Love your videos :) So many good books, I got Rachel Gibson's new book, Dust by Joan Francis, Eyes Like Stars, Where She Went, Body Heat by Brenda Novak and both Dreaming Anastasia and Haunted by Joy Preble. I keep hearing about all these amazing sales and books everyone is picking up at Borders Locations that are closing. Sucks that they are closing, but I wish I lived in a bigger city that actually had a book store so I could rush in and buy more books :)

  37. haha love the sunglasses.
    I loved Katie Alender's first book, can't wait to read the second.
    Have fun!
