It's all become clear to me, Noha. 1. That's not your real name, and 2. You selected a pseudonym that would slyly inform me that you don't find me funny. No ha. Okay, I get it. And you leave me no choice but to move on. Aloha, Noha.
So is there anyone else out there that wants this free book? E. Lockhart is a fabulous writer, and WE WERE LIARS has gotten some dynamite reviews. Meg Rosoff (of whom I have often babbled) was not completely taken in by the story, but the book has over 9,000 Goodreads ratings and close to 3,000 reviews, and it has a very respectable four-out-of-five-stars rating overall. Isn't that good enough to take a chance on, people? Perhaps the problem is that I didn't adequately define the phrase "free book." I will do so now: it means "book (in excellent condition) that I will mail to you at my own expense with no financial obligation of any kind on your part." Any questions?
I was advised by a helpful commenter to one of my previous book giveaway contests to use Rafflecopter. It was one of those excellent suggestions which would have been perfect if I had just been a different person than I am. Technology is so not my thing, and I feel like: why should I have to torture myself by learning some alien technology when all I want to do is GIVE AWAY A FRIGGING BOOK??? Does that seem fair to you? It doesn't to me. What seems fair is that I should just have to make the offer and wait as the responses flood in.
Okay. So we're going to try this again, but this time, I will keep my inner control freak in check. I'm not going to tell you what kind of comment to leave. Leave any comment your little heart desires. Then, when I'm good and ready, I'll pick one of the commenters according to my own purely subjective standards, and I'll send that person the book, and that will be the end of it.
Have I made myself clear? Good. Then let's stop screwing around and get to work, shall we? The book and I aren't getting any younger, ya know.
