Grab the book nearest you.

Turn to page 56

Find the 5th sentence (as well as one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog.

Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, or the most intellectual. Use the CLOSET.

Dark Lover
by J.R. Ward

Her head dropped. "My lord, I can feel your p-"
"I'm perfectly fine."
She hesitated a moment. And then queitly disappeared.
Ten minutes later he came up to the drawing room.
"Fritz?" he called out.
"Yes, master?" The bulter seemed please to hav been summoned.
"Do you have some red smokes on hand?"
"Of course."

Sorry, it's probably not the best few sentences to get you into the book. Maybe the next book will have a better sample.

The Darkest Night
by Gena Showalter

"They're killing him in there." Oh God. They were killing him, stabbing him over and over again. There'd be so much blood... such terrible screams. She gagged, remembering.

The voices still might be gone, but she felt more tormented than ever.

"Maddox will be fine," the man told her.


Teaser Tuesday- The Hunt

-A weekly meme started by MizB over at Should Be Reading.

Grab your current book

Open to a random page

Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere of that page

Share the title and author so others can add it to their TBR piles


The Hunt by Anne Marsh- pg 183

Jarfar glowered at her, but his tone was firm. "You wish. You're my mate, femi. You promise obedience and docility and I provide protection."

"Docility wasn't part of the bargain" Miu muttered. Male wanted his pound of flesh.

Of course I haven't gotten that far myself. I'm only at pg 55. But still, it sounds like they're getting along just fine. Hehe!!

WARNING From an Amazon Buyer

I had ordered a book I had been waiting for for the past three weeks. I wasn't concerned at first since they had until friday for me to recieve it. But then I had gone on the seller's profile.

Apparently, there has been 64% of complaints about NEVER recieving their books and NEVER getting a reply as to why. And that this seller could possibly be a scammer.

I mean I only spent 5 bucks, including shipping, on the book. But still, that wasn't right. I could of spent that money, or less, on getting the SAME book from another seller.

So if you LOVE to buy books for cheap off of Amazon, like I do. I forwarn you. Check out the seller's feedback before buying from them. If they have over 50% of complaints, DON'T buy from them. And check what people have to say about the seller. If people are saying that they haven't gotten their book from them, DON'T buy from them.

And especially DON'T buy from jersey.xray. Along with everyone else who has bought from them, I believe they are a scam. So please listen to me and don't buy anything from them.

I hope this helps those who buy from Amazon.

What would you say if I told you that *I* have the key to you winning your choice of either a Kindle 2, Sony Pocket E-Reader or the new Barnes & Noble Nook? What if I said that that's the GRAND Prize in this Contest/Giveaway? Are you interested in Second and Third Place Prizes as well? This is it...The "Giveaway to Sell Your SOUL For.." Why are we calling it that? Hell-O did you see the GRAND PRIZE?The real reason is that debut author Matthew Carter is sponsoring this Giveaway to celebrate his first book "LIQUID SOUL"! Cute huh? (I came up with that idea...and yes, I even surprise myself sometimes) Which ever reader the winner chooses will also come with an ebook copy of LIQUID SOUL!

Now that I have your FULL attention, Let me remind you of the post I did on the book LIQUID SOUL which can be found HERE. Second Place Prizes will be (Two Winners) Hardcover copy of LIQUID SOUL *signed* and a Gift Card for $20.00 to Amazon.com! Third Place will be (Five Winners) A *signed* Trade Copy of LIQUID SOUL! Isn't that an Amazing Prize Package?

This is different from any and all other contests I have going right now...if you are drawn as the winner and have not followed ALL the Rules then another name will be drawn. Let me explain...

What a Holiday Gift this is! Winners will be announced right here on Park-Avenue Princess January 1, 2010! Happy New Year! You have until then to do the different things that YOU choose to do.

Below are all of the different things you can CHOOSE from to enter.

1. The easiest way to enter is by purchasing a copy and/or copies of Matthew’s book LIQUID SOUL.

If you'd like to purchase a signed copy, (Hard or Trade) please contact Matthew at LiquidSoulBook@gmail.com . The cost of a signed Hardcover is $30.00 and a signed Trade is $20.00.

It is NOT mandatory to purchase anything to enter the contest, there are MANY other ways to enter and WIN. Also, just because you purchase a book, that does not in any way guarantee you a winning spot. I know that most of you will realize this on your own, but I just want to be clear that this is the way Mr. Carter is choosing to hand out the most extra points! Also please note that the author will be selecting the winner of this contest, not myself and that I am in no way responsible for mailing out any of the above-said prizes.

If you do decide to purchase copies of the book, please email me a copy of your purchase receipt to PrincessPrizes@yahoo.com. How many points extra will you get? Excellent question!

400 points per *signed* hard copy
350 points per *signed* soft copy
300 points per hard copy
150 points per trade copy
75 points per ebook copy

This must be verified with your receipt of purchase. Copies purchased before this time are not eligible. Remember the holidays are right around the corner and books make a perfect gift for anyone! I LOVED this book! If you're into Thrillers, I highly recommend LIQUID SOUL!

Then, there are the usual ways to earn extra points and by 'usual', I mean just like in the other contests I host, I leave a charming little list of things you can do and you post which ones you choose! Another thing you should know is that the winner will not be chosen by who has the highest number of points. Simply put, the amount of points is the amount of entries you have so the Grand Prize can go to ANYONE!
