Serendipity Reviews 9/11 Giveaway: The Usual Rules

Heylo everyone! So, you (if you live in the US and haven't lived under a rock post-2001) probably know what tomorrow is- 9/11, the day when the Twin Towers fell.

Rearranging my TBR pile- something I do a LOT, being my anal retentive self- I found a book called "The Usual Rules". I actually finished it a while ago- I never got around to posting a review (I'll do that now, though). It's, in short, this gorgeously written novel about a girl named Wendy whose mother goes to work one day, a day like any other- September 11, 2001- and never comes back.

And then, when I was looking at it, I was thinking about what tomorrow (I usually forget), I thought that it's a perfect oppurtunity for someone else to enjoy this book- so I'm giving it away to one of you :)

Here's how to enter- leave your name, country and email, and you'll be entered!

1 entry- Become/be a follower (recommended, because that way you'll see the winner post)
2 entries- Post a link to this contest (sidebar is fine, or you could do a blog post)
3 entries- Put a joke in your post! (Plus one more if it makes me laugh!)

Some random tidbits and tiny morsels of knowledge about the giveaway:

1)It's international- whether you're in the US of A or waaaay over in Bangladesh, you can enter!
2) The final day you can be entered is October 1st- 20 days.

The lines are open!

CONTEST UPDATE: I'd really appreciate it if you enter with 1 comment! I love all the comments- but it affects my Randomizer program I'll use when I pick a winner. But if you forget something it's fine :)

A joke for you:

A man was on his way home with a new car, which was absorbing all his attention, when it struck him that he had forgotten something. Twice he stopped, counted his parcels, searched his pockets, but finally decided he had everything with him. Yet the feeling persisted. When he reached home his daughter ran out, stopped short, and cried, "Daddy, where's Mommy?"

That book sounds really interesting! I'll enter. :o)

I already follow your blog,
I'm just about to write a blog post about the comp,
And here's a joke for you:
Two girls were walking in the park, when suddenly, one of them stopped. "Lucy, I've got two questions for you," one of them said. "What is my name, and what's that over there?" Lucy laughed. "A-man-duh!"

I made that one up by myself so sorry if it isn't very good, lol.

Just remove the NOSPAM.
