ArmChair BEA Giveaway- YA Grab Bag

My ArmChair BEA Giveaway is for the stack of YA galleys pictured below. These are winter and spring 2010 titles from a variety of publishers, all in new condition. I'm giving away all of the titles to one winner, like a real galley grab. I'll also thrown in a gently-used conference-floor totebag I picked up at ALA Midwinter (which is also where these books came from), and maybe an extra surprise or two.

The titles:
The Popularity Papers, by Amy Ignatow
The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, by Heather Brewer,
The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Kidnapped, by Yxta Maya Murray,
Fang, by James Patterson,
Dragons of Darkness, by Antonia Michaelis,
The Prophecy, by Dawn Miller,
Magic Under Glass, by Jaclyn Delamore (with the embargoed "white washed" cover, FYI),
Night Runner, by Max Turner,
Emily the Strange: Stranger and Stranger, by Rob Reger and Jessica Gruner,
Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies, by Andrea Beaty,
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, by Tom Angleberger,
Enchanted Glass, by Diane Wynne Jones.

The rules:
  • Open to U.S. entrants only.
  • Open only to those attending neither BEA nor Book Blogger Con.
  • The giveaway is for the whole pile. If there's something in it that you don't want, you're free to dispose of it as you see fit. You're free to do whatever you want with all of the books.
  • Leave a comment with your email address. Entries without email addresses will be disregarded.
  • Tweet the entry for an extra entry; become a follower for two extra entries.
  • The contest is open now until midnight, Sunday May 30. I'll pick the winner during the day on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday.
  • I will pick the winner using and will notify the winner immediately. The winner has 48 hours to get back in touch with me with a shipping address. If I don't hear from the winner in that time, I'll choose a new winner.
Good luck and happy Armchair BEA!
