End of the World Giveaway Hop

End of the World Giveaway Hop

December 14th to 21st

The Mayan
Calendar Ends!
Does it mean the end of the World?

 

Probably not but just in case…

Which books would you save

if the world was coming to an end?

 

Well… If the world was just coming to an end and there was still time to grab a book… I’m imagining a disaster that has knocked out electrical devices so my ereader is just a fancy paper weight now. This is seriously like asking me to pick a favorite child! *wail* have you SEEN my print library? Click HERE  I have 10 yep TEN bookshelves full not counting stacks and piles and *whispers* boxes in my closets and under my bed. If we were invaded by a species of bookworm and had to feed them a book a day to survive… I would last for years! 😛

There are a few books that do jump to my mind that I would grab. Who am I kidding? I would try to save boxfuls. I would save my Mary Stewart books and my Trixie Belden collection (I have up to book 38!) I would grab my Jayne Ann Krentz first edition Guinevere Jones series written as Jayne Castle and my Elizabeth Peters Vicky Bliss series… I could keep going and if the end of the world TYPE of disaster, cause it would really depend on the end wouldn’t it, I would save as many as possible! lol I love my books.

So, I’m going with the spirit of End of the World and giving away a book about the end of civilization as we know it….

  1. I totally want Shatter Me! 🙂

    I’m doing this hop too (and the Junco site) and I’d save my first edition Vampire Chronicle books. I have three, all of them except Interview with a Vampire. i started reading Anne Rice with The Witching Hour back when that first came out…and I read my way through everything she ever wrote. It’s been a long time since I picked up an Anne Rice book, but Lestat is one of my all time favorite characters.

  2. I was considering getting a portable solar panel kit so that I can charge my nook and not lose 900 books in case a huge disaster happened. If I only had a chance to save one, it would be The Passage by Justin Cronin. The book is also about the end of the world and at 784 pages, big enough to keep me occupied for a while. I highly recommend it. Truthfully, the idea of not having access to books even for a day fills me with anxiety. I will get that solar kit!

  3. I would bring Little Women by Louisa May Alcott it’s one of my favorite books and I reccomend Tui Sutherland’s Avatar series!!

  4. I would do what I could to save my Kindle, 🙂 , but I would try and save as many of my Sherrilyn Kenyon Books that I could . I can’t choose just one its impossible .

  5. If I had to choose one book, I think I’d grab my husband’s complete works of William Shakespeare. It contains some old favorites, along with some that I’ve never read!

  6. Too many books to choose from, I’ll just grab my kindle and save them all!
    I forbid the world to end!! I have way too many books on my TBR list!!
    Merry Book-mas to one and all!

  7. I would try to save my Mercy Thompson series first, but then I would go for all my other books. It’s too hard to just save one book. I would just bring my iPad, but the battery would die and then I’d be without ANY books.

  8. I would really want to save a series and that would be either The Hunger Games trilogy(but I could survive with the first book ;)) or Kate Daniels series or Dark Days series.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  9. I don’t have a favorite to save because most books are favorites to me, so I would just grab the biggest one.
    Happy Holidays!

  10. I highly recommend “The Pledge”. This is like the second dystopian book I read and after reading it I was hooked on the genre!!
