1 Year Anniversary and 4,000 "likes" Bash: Week 1

Woo Hoo!!! We made it one year! Thank you to all of you for making Book Reader Addicts what it is. When I first started the page I didn't expect it to grow this big. I only started it to share my love for books with others and to be able to talk to people with the same interest. I have met some really great people, made some awesome friends, and my TBR list has grown so much. So, again thank you to all of you; readers and writers!

Now on to the party! Starting today, September 4th till September 30th we will be giving away 20 great prizes! Each week there will be a new giveaway with at least 4-5 winners a week.

What must you do you ask? There will be 2 mandatory items: You must be a liker of the Facebook Page, after all that is what we are celebrating. You must follow this blog. There will be optional things to do to get extra entries and will very each week.

Is it International? As you all know I try my best to make all giveaways International, because without you the page just wouldn't be the same.. Almost all if not all (I am not sure on 2 of the prizes yet) are International.

This weeks the giveaway will end on Friday, September 9th and the winners will be announced Saturday, September 10th. Yes, you can win more than once this month. I am going to be using a new form from Rafflecopter and all of the winners will be chosen randomly.

Here are this weeks prizes! Have fun, happy reading and thank you!

A physical copy or e-book (winner's choice)

Author: David Ward-Nanney 
Release: Oct. 1, Mud Season Publishing
Description:  After eight years of searching for perfect snow, Bo Grayson knows that every great day in the mountains can end with an avalanche. He has seen search and rescue on several avalanches. He has seen the bodies. Few survive. Sometimes events or people or moods create their own avalanches. There is the dreaded avalanche of the home life, of the career, and even of the soul. Sometimes you feel the avalanche before it happens. A haunting autumnal depression and a chance bookstore encounter lead Bo to a Jungian analysis. He digs through his past and takes a closer look at his friends. Some are larger than life and monstrous. He must reckon with his chosen profession as a Chicago trader and the insatiable drive to make more money. Most of all Bo must reconcile his own collection of clamoring voices, especially the ones that drive him into ever more dangerous territory.

Author: Marie Crist
Release: June 2011
Description:  A man patiently watches a group of young girls walk home from school, waiting for the perfect moment to take the one child he has designated as his next victim. However, what this predator does not know is that he, too, is being stalked. There is someone in the shadows-a trained Citizen-who is ready to make sure that the child under his assigned protection is never harmed. One pedophile, one abuser, one killer at a time; this Citizen and others like him will take a stand against those who prey on the weak and the innocent.

 Physical copy or e-book winner's choice

Author: Pamela Wright
Release: June 2011
Description: Have you ever wished something bad would happen to someone evil because God and the law took too long? 
There are those that risk it all for the rest of us. Duplicity is the exquisite yacht manned by such men. Men intent on luring the world’s wealthiest human traffickers out of their millions and into their final moments on earth inside Tillamook Rock’s infamous lighthouse. 
Terrible Tilly, as the lighthouse is known, rises from the sea on craggy slabs of jagged rock. On a clear night, when the stars are shining, smoke can be seen wafting out to sea as the crematorium housed inside Tilly consumes one more soul’s lifeless body.

Physical book or e-book winner's choice

Author: Michael Schiavone
Release: October 2011, Permanent Press
Description: A tale of love, hate, frustration and longing, this beautifully written family drama depicts the terrifying dynamics of a mother and son who have charted courses that manage to miss one another; where anything one of them does, or says, angers the other. Family and friends intervene, but in the end the two of them must face the challenges of moving past barriers they have erected to see what they might do to repair their fractured lives.

 Physical copy

Author: Louise Gaylord
Release: Oct. 1, Little Moose Press
Description: Summer at the Lake just isn’t what it used to be. This year, it’s murder. After 15 years, Allie Armington returns to her aunt Sallie’s idyllic cottage retreat in the Adirondacks where she spent most of her childhood summers. Until the accident, that is. But instead of the happy reunion she’s anticipating, she finds Sallie’s mangled body and her cousin Arlene bound, gagged, and drugged. The close-knit community of July 4th to Labor Day residents at the Hotanawa compound tries to portray the tragedy as a suicide to keep things out of the news. Allie knows better. There’s been foul play, yet the cops have all but closed the case. To clear her aunt’s reputation, Allie’s got to navigate her way around a compromised police department, wealthy neighbors with agendas, a cousin who’s turned into a meth head, and a drug conspiracy that just gets stranger and stranger—especially since the handsome drug cop is an ally in one moment and a suspected conspirator the next. Populated with neighbors you love to hate, childhood ex-crushes you’d hate to love, and family and friends who promote more problems than solutions, Dark Lake brings us an up close look at summer life in the Adirondacks and Allie at her best.
