1 - so true
2 - True Detective (all the questions AND all the answers, I just haven’t figured them out yet)
To celebrate the (approximate) 1-year anniversary of Diversity in YA’s launch on tumblr, we’re giving away all these books! Thank you for celebrating diversity in young adult books with us and continuing to engage in dialogue and increasing awareness!
(To view a document listing all the titles, click here.)
Here’s how this is going to work:
- We’ve divided these books into 4-packs of diverse awesomeness. Don’t worry, series titles will all be kept together, so you won’t end up getting a middle book or a third book in a trilogy without the others.
- We have multiple copies of some titles, so some of them will go into several prize packs.
- We’ll select 17 winners, each of whom will receive a prize pack of 4 books!
- Because of the large number of titles and the cost of international shipping, we’re only able to ship to U.S. mailing addresses. International folks may enter as long as they have a U.S. mailing address.
- Teachers and librarians get an extra entry!
- The deadline to enter is March 31, 2014.
(If you can’t see the Rafflecopter entry form on your tumblr dash, you can also enter at our website.)
