Andye & Amy's In My Mailbox and Second Hand Saturday Giveaway!

WELCOME!! 
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, answer this in the comments: Andye's on vacation!  Are you going on vacation this summer?  Where are you going?  Extra entries in the form.

Welcome to Second Hand Saturday!! In an attempt to clear our bookshelves, and pass on great used books to our stalkers followers, Amy, Kit, Abigaile, Austin and I have decided to hold weekly giveaways of some of the books on our bookshelves! 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!



Middle Grade

YA books + (ARC=Advanced Reading Copy)


ADULT *18 and over




Thank You so much for following. We could not do this without our followers. Come back next Saturday to see the winner and enter in for another book giveaway!

THIS WEEK'S WINNER IS: 


Julie Witt

 
 Email me at ReadingTeen1 at gmail.com 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!)

Congratulations!

    I have listened to an audiobook once. It was nice not having to read it because my eyes won't get tired, but I like reading it at my own pace. The speaker was the same person so when the characters changed, the voice was still the same. I would recommend audiobooks to those who prefer to listen rather than read.

  16. We have no plans on going anywhere, and the way that my parents are acting, it's unlikely that I'd have the time to go on a vacation, even if were were planning one. Oh, well, just got back from NY (just 2 weeks before BEA!!! Awful luck!)

    BTW, where do you live because that's where I'm going for vacation this summer. I need the precise address. Mmmmmkay?

  18. Sadly, I am staying put for the summer, in hopes of making money before another year of school. Although I am moving into my new apartment soon, so that's fun. [:

  46. I went to Ransom Riggs signing of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and all of those photographs are originals that he found at swap meets and flea markets cause he collects old photographs! How creepy is that!! He also said that old 2 of the pictures were doctored. I wonder which two! Great video :)

  48. Hi, this is Allie~! :)
    I'm so happy that it's summer vacation now because I can finally catch on all the books that have been put on hold (due to school work). I'm satisfied with just staying at home and reading.
