Any chance you could help make me, and my mother, and my husband, and my friend Els very happy?

FINAL UPDATE: The winner is San, who is thirteen years old and a moderator on the Hunger Games Unofficial Forum, and so is an excellent person to have won! Congratulations San!

If you by any chance feel that you could do a small thing that would make me and my mother and my husband and Els, aka Librarian Mom, very happy, maybe you could go leave a comment on this post at LibrarYAn (saying I sent you) and help us get an ARC of Catching Fire to read? If you haven't read it yourself, and want to, we can add you to the mailing list should I win...It ends at midnight on June 1st, which seems to mean in six hours....

LibraYAn has been on my blogroll for ages, by the way, and I enjoy reading what she has to say. So do take a moment to check out her blog!

Update at 7:56: I am two comments behind.

Update at 8:41: Aerin has just let me know there's another copy being given away by Reviewer X. A third party is now in the running. I am behind by one.

Update at 9:35: it is too close to call. But I have called my mother. This should help.

And even if I don't win, THANKS to all of you who helped my cause! You are the best.

Update at 6:16 am, Monday: Well, in the last few hours it turned into a contest between the two other people, essentially to see which of them was tied into a larger social network. So, although I didn't read and count all 432 comments, I'm pretty certain I didn't win....Oh well. I think I'm the winner in the sense that Alicia meant--sending most potential new readers her way! And it was very comforting to see readers of this blog going over and commenting for me. Thank you again! If I ever were to get my hands on an arc, I'd lend it to all of you.


  1. Charlotte - also, head over here


    for another chance to win a copy

  2. I just commented for you! Good luck!!

  3. OHHHHH! I so hope you win!... I just commented for you.

    Good Luck!

  4. Charlotte, the San-Lola people are totally doing a slew of "anonymous posting" - so if you don't win, I'm going to be upset with Alicia for counting those votes. So unfair. Blegh.

  5. I know--it got ucky. But how can she not count them, since she didn't specify? Oh well, thanks so much for helping...I feel that I win in the spirit of the contest (sending over potential new readers).

  6. I hope this news makes you feel better--you won 2 books by Jo Knowles! Congrats! Please e-mail me with your U.S. snail mail address.

  7. I'll comment for you and I want to read it if you get it, so if you do please let me know so you can add me to the list-I promise to read it very very fast and it'll make both me and my husband super happy!!!! It looks like my comment will count since it goes until midnight on June 1st. Good luck!

  8. Um, Hi, Charlotte. I was coming over here to thank you for being so gracious and understanding, but...

    "Charlotte, the San-Lola people are totally doing a slew of "anonymous posting" - so if you don't win, I'm going to be upset with Alicia for counting those votes. So unfair. Blegh."

    Just so you know: I did not do those. I posted a message on Facebook for all of my friends to go read the forum. I'm also a moderator on the Hunger Games Unofficial Forum, and my friend Saph (who runs the forum) posted an announcement about voting for me. So, I don't know what Aerin's problem is, but I hope it's not with me or my friends.

    By the way, I'm thirteen years old- and totally obsessed with THG. So, yeah. Don't take it personally, I'm sure that you deserve it as much as anyone else.

  9. Thanks for trying, Charlotte! If I score a copy, I promise to share with you.

  10. Hi San,

    Gosh, you're being the moderator of the Hunger Games forum explains a lot, and certainly means you are a great person to win it!
