giveaway time!  
I've yet to sort through the bags upon boxes of books that I want to give away. One of these days, in the meanwhile, I'm sorting through a crate of books that I've set aside for gifting. Some of these books have been there a good long while, so I'm putting them up for grabs. Oh, and I just found a bag of stuff from ComicCon, so that's on the list as well.


Royal Exile - Fiona McIntosh (two one copy) ~ratesjul

The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch ~jperegrine

Bloodhound (ARC)- Tamora Pierce ~tarrinthetree

Mortal Engines, Predator's Gold - Philip Reeve ~jperegrine

Crocodile on the Sandbank, The Curse of the Pharaohs - Elizabeth Peters ~ratesjul

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke ~rengirlie87

Lyra's Oxford - Philip Pullman ~tarrinthetree

Bellwether - Connie Willis ~wench18

The Grey King, Greenwitch - Susan Cooper ~tarrinthetree

The Thief - Megan Whalen Turner ~wench18


Rebel Angels - Libba Bray ~joshwriting

The Armless Maiden and Other Tales for childhood's Survivors - ed. Terri Windling ~anyagee

Wildwood Dancing - Juliet Marillier ~rengirlie87

Sword-Sworn - Jennifer Roberson ~rengirlie87

Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta ~joshwriting

Ptolemy's Gate - Jonathan Stroud

Here, There be Dragons - James A. Owen ~rengirlie87

The King of Attolia - Megan Whalen Turner ~wench18

Un Lun Dun - China Miévelle ~joshwriting, anyagee, ~ratesjul

Hero - Perry Moore (three two copies) ~rengirlie87

For those who care about such things, most of the hardcovers are first editions.

Make your claims! I'll collect mailing info later.

edit: I also have a Lord of the Rings film frame collectible that I got as a freebie when I went to the marathon viewing. It's been sitting in the box ever since. If it's your cuppa, let me know.

p.s. not limited to the continental US
I feel: busybusy

I'd be interested in these three:
Rebel Angels - Libba Bray
Jellicoe Road - Melina Marchetta
Un Lun Dun - China Miévelle (one copy)

For reasons that escape me, I've not yet gotten around to reading any Bray or Miévelle. Marchetta's a name I don't instantly recognize, but being a fan of both T.S. Eliot and A.L. Webber, the title intrigues...

OTOH, needier readers should get higher preference than I.

All yours! They're all quite good, but I think you'll particularly enjoy Un Lun Dun.

While I'd heard of Melina Marchetta, mostly thanks to working in the bookstore, it wasn't until this book won the Printz that I read any of her work.

I would love a lot of those books... unfortunately, I can't get them until I go to college in the fall, because my parents would freak if I got a package from someone on the Internet. So if you're okay with hanging onto them for a few months, I'd love Bloodhound, the Susan Cooper books, Lyra's Oxford, and any others that are left over. And if not, then I'll go to the library. ^_^
Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 05:04 pm (UTC)
For you, m'dear, I'll gladly hold on to them.
Rennierengirlie87 on June 13th, 2009 07:15 pm (UTC)

Tarrintarrinthetree on June 14th, 2009 04:14 pm (UTC)
You are a lovely person. Thank you.
Rennierengirlie87 on June 13th, 2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell - Susanna Clarke
Sword-Sworn - Jennifer Roberson
Here, There be Dragons - James A. Owen
Hero - Perry Moore
Wildwood Dancing - Juliet Marillier

Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
You got 'em!
Rennierengirlie87 on June 13th, 2009 07:14 pm (UTC)
damn....really wanted bloodhound.
Amanda: Cimoreneanyagee on June 13th, 2009 07:33 pm (UTC)
I'd like to request
The Armless Maiden and Other Tales for childhood's Survivors - ed. Terri Windling
Un Lun Dun - China Miévelle

Yay books!
Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 07:35 pm (UTC)
Both thoroughly excellent choices, and both are yours.
Peregrinejperegrine on June 13th, 2009 07:43 pm (UTC)

Lies of Locke Lamora and both Phillip Reeve books.

Just say how much the postage is and I'll happily send it along.

Side note - have you read Reeve's kid's books (Larklight, Starcross, Mothstorm)? If not, they're a really fun set of steampunk for kids adventures.
Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 08:35 pm (UTC)
Somewhere, buried deep amid all the other books I'm looking to give away, I have copies of the last two books in the Mortal Engine series. If/when I unearth them, do you want? I utterly adored Larklight, have a copy of Starcross on my to-read shelves, and had no idea there was a third available. That's what I get for not working in a bookstore anymore. Still, woohoo!

Speaking of steampuk for kids (or, rather, teens in this case), have you read Kenneth Oppel's Matt Cruse books? I &hearts them very, very much.

Anyway, the three you requested are yours.
Peregrinejperegrine on June 13th, 2009 08:59 pm (UTC)
I'll have to keep an eye out for the Kenneth Oppel stuff.

And I would absolutely love the rest of the Mortal Engine series.!

oooh ooooh ooooh wish I had seen this before going to site today!

connie willis - bellwether
Megan Whalen Turner - The Thief, The king of Atola

Pretty pretty please!
Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 08:37 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure you were long since on site by the time I posted this. No worries, though. As I begin to sort through the crazy amounts of books waiting to be given away, there will be more posts like this.

Giving books to you is extra awesome because I can have my sweetie hand deliver!

And those three books are yours.

No one wants the Elizabeth Peters? :( I've been rereading them lately, just cos seeing them at the library makes me think of you and caragana_leaves. May I have?

Also, I went and looked at Un Lun Dun on Amazon after seeing the comments here, and that sounds VERY fun. Royal Exile sounds pretty good too.
Kelladyjoust on June 13th, 2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
They're all yours, sweetling! I can't wait to hear what you think of Un Lun Dun. :)
Zoë Tzoethor on June 14th, 2009 04:01 pm (UTC)
I would quite like Ptolemy's Gate by Stroud -- I would like it even more if you happen to stumble upon the first two books in the trilogy and could send them all. :)
Kelladyjoust on June 15th, 2009 03:56 am (UTC)
I'll see if I might have spare copies; you really MUST read them in order. Also, if I might ask, what do you tend to read? What are your favorites? I've so many stacks of books I've taken to throwing surprise extras into many of these packages.

Hm. I like to read fantasy, science fiction, good fiction, nonfiction basically anything, popular science type stuff, and am super into dystopian novels. Also basically anything young adult.

Um, is there anything left? :)
