Second Hand Saturday 5.4.13

Welcome to Second Hand Saturday!
In an attempt to clear our bookshelves, and pass on great used books to our stalkers followers, we 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.

This Week's Question:
If you could reread your favorite book as if it were the first time again, which book would it be? (Thanks for the question Briana!)  I know this is going to be so cliche, but I wish I could re-read the Harry Potter series for the first time!  Next would have to be The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima.  LOVE.

Just comment below to be entered!

And this week's winner is...

        Adult and Non-Fiction



                1. I totally agree about the HARRY POTTER books. To discover them for the first time again would be amazing.

                2. Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter :)

                3. I would want to rediscover my Thoroughbred books by Joanna Campebll, those were my favourites for years

                4. As a child, I loved the following series:
                  Little House
                  Trixie Belden
                  Nancy Drew

                  As an adult:
                  To Kill a Mockingbird
                  Gone With the Wind

                5. The Hunger Games. I still love the book even when I reread it, but nothing compares to the first time I picked it up. :)

                6. Thanks for the giveaway! I wish I could reread the Clockwork Angel (Infernal Devices series) by Cassandra Clare again. <3

                7. I would like to reread the Embrace series by Jessica Shirvington and The Archers of Avalon series by Chelsea Fine!!!

                8. Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick. Loved it, wish I could read it again and again for the first time :)

                9. The Night Circus! I love the descriptions and ideas of the different tents.

                10. The Night Circus! I love the descriptions and ideas of the different tents.

                11. Yeah, just thinking about reading Harry Potter again for the first time feels, um, MAGIC. This would be so, so amazing.

                12. I think I would either have to go with HP or Swoon by Nina Malkin. I still love Swoon so muc and I think it would be awesome to have a new first impression now that I'm older.

                13. The Twilight series. I love it. Never get enough. Thanks for the giveaway.

                14. Aw, man. So many books to choose from. I'm gonna have three picks ok? HP, of course. The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning especially Shadowfever. Aaaand Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

                15. The Thorn Birds. I grew up watching this with my mom anytime the mini series was on t.v. It was the ultimate in forbidden love. I finally grabbed the book when I was about 15 and was blown away with how much more I loved it than the mimi series!

                16. "Where the Red Fern Grows", because now when I reread it I am preparing for the lump in the throat moments and if it was the first time reading it again they would surprise me.

                17. Either Harry Potter or Maria V Snyder's Study series LOVE ALL THE BOOKS <3

                18. I've got to go with Harry Potter too! That would be amazing!

                19. I definitely agree with Harry Potter, as well as The Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy!

                20. I agree on the Harry Potter series, I'd so love to rediscover them again. And also Cloud of Sparrows and Autumn Bridge by Takashi Matsuoka, as I love the two books.

                21. The Hunger Games, the Gone series, and the Infernal Devices series are all ones I wish I could read again for the first time.

                22. The Hunger Games, Harry potter, The Giver.


                23. Watership Down. I don't know why, but I loved this as a kid.
