Run For Your Life Update

ONLY THREE DAYS LEFT!

Thanks to so many people's generosity, the Bookanistas have raised over $1000 for Charlie Bewley's Run for Your Life for The Lions Gate Hospital Foundation. The man is running an ultra marathon and we wanted to help out. Click here to see why. 

Can you skip your latte today and donate? You might think five dollars won't make a difference, but it all adds up (to $1000 so far!) Some people have given more, some have given less, but the amount doesn't matter. The care and intention behind it does!

Also, there are PRIZES. Examples: Summit Entertainment is giving away a PRE-SCREENING of Breaking Dawn. I am giving away a UNICORN.

If those don't flip your switch, how about THESE prizes from the BOOKANISTAS?

BOOKS:

A signed copy of DEMONGLASS by Rachel Hawkins (AND Rachel is throwing in a signed Demonglass totebag), a signed copy of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis, a signed copy of TORMENT by Lauren Kate, a unicorn, and a signed and annotated advance reader copy of HOURGLASS. I'll include inspirations, playlists, deleted scenes, research information, and maybe reveal a secret or two about the sequel!

From an anonymous donor:
A signed copy of CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS by Cassie Clare

A Dystopian Trifecta of Awesome - a signed copy of DARK AND HOLLOW PLACES by Carrie Ryan, a signed copy of MATCHED by Ally Condie, and a signed ARC of Elena's own POSSESSION

A signed copy of WHITE CAT and a signed copy of RED GLOVE by Holly Black

Signed copies of BLOOD MAGIC by Tessa Gratton, XVI by Julia Karr and RIVAL by Sarah Bennet Wealer

A signed copy of LIAR SOCIETY and bookmarks

All you have to do is follow these steps: 


1. Go to the Run For Your Life page.

2. Make a donation. $5 is suggested, but lower or higher is fine. (Also know that for every dollar you donate, you'll be entered to win a private, advance screening for twenty people for Breaking Dawn. The Bookanistas have NOTHING to do with that part - that's all Charlie and Summit Entertainment.) 

3. Come back and fill out the entry form on this page. 

We're trusting you to be honest about giving, and about the amount you give. Don't be a punk. Keep up our faith in mankind.

4. The Bookanistas will be giving away a selection of prizes (see list above). You will be entered one time for each dollar you donate ($5 = 5 entries). If you wish to be entered to win a specific prize, let us know in the designated section of the entry form. 

5. We're following the guidelines set forth by Run for Your Life, which means this particular event will only be open to those in North America. Entries will be closed on April 30th, and we will contact randomly selected winners shortly thereafter. 

6. Spread the word. Tweet, post the Run For Your Life logo with a link to Charlie's site on your blog, or Facebook about the event, and receive an entry (one entry TOTAL for doing all or one of these things). Place a link/links in the place provided on the entry form.








Thank you so much to those who have already donated and those who do!
