Now on to my first “Are You Kidding” contest to thank past, present , and new readers. It’s actually two contests. One is complete (Yes, I’m sneaky at times). For the past year I’ve been holding a secret contest that only I knew about. The winner is my most frequent visitor, the loyal reader who commented more than anyone else. Congratulations to this active follower who will receive a $25 Visa Gift card! Drum roll…
Pause while she screams “ARE YOU KIDDING?” No, I’m not.
The second half of the “Are You Kidding” contest begins today and will run all week until 8 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, September 21st. The winners will be announced on Monday, Sept. 22nd. To enter just add your name to the comments on this post and you don’t even have to say anything intelligent. An “I’m in” is fine. Yes, Rosi, you’re also eligible for this contest.
I’ll assign a number for every entry (one per person) and throw the number into a giant twirling metal cage.
Okay, maybe not as impressive in picture form, or as clean as a Rafflecopter drawing, but I like the sound when it spins around.
The winner will receive all 12 middle grade hardbacks:
Yes, every last one! The pages have only been opened once, so they are like brand new. You could fill a shelf and the stories will keep you occupied for the rest of the year – probably longer.
If you don’t snag the GRAND PRIZE. I’ll twirl the cage for two more numbers. The 1st runner-up will get a $25 Visa Gift Card and the 2nd will be enjoying a $25 AMAZON gift card. And I’m still not kidding.
Good Luck and Happy Reading!
I can’t stay any longer. I’ve got to devour that cupcake and start on my next set of 52 reviews.
You’ve created some truly impressive titles! Congratulations! I love this giveaway. My almost 11yr-old would freak to get all those MG books.
I meant ‘reviews of those titles’. LOL See how excited your giveaway got me.
Bahahahaha…like that is all I can say. My face would explode from holding the rest in.
You ROCKED your first year. CONGRATS! And a congrats to Rosi, too! Secret giveaway, how cool is that? Enjoy that cupcake and thanks for an incredibly awesome giveaway. Enjoy that cupcake. Cheers to 52 more great MMGM posts.
I bow to your amazing list of reviews. I’ve slowed down a little this year on the reviews. I’m in of course. Middle Grade books are like candy to me. lol
Wow, what an amazing giveaway. And I, for one, am very impressed with your giant twirling metal cage. Congratulations on a great first year!
Sounds fantastic, Greg! Any one of those books would be a great giveaway. All 12 would be AWESOME! Thanks for offering them.

Dude! Awesomeeeee! Can’t believe you have found that many MMGM books, I struggled this weekend alone to find a good MIDDLE GRADE book that hasn’t been done on MMGM before. It’s exhausting, it took for ever but I settled on one eventually. Congrats on your one year anniversary!
Wow, Greg! What a great give a way and I can’t believe you’ve read all those books. Very dedicated. Thanks for all your reviews.
Congrats on your first anniversary with us at Marvelous Middle Grade Monday. I am in awe of how much you read–as well as your great reviews. You are truly one of my fave MMGMers.
Congrats also to Rosi H. And I’m in for the next giveaway. (In fact, I’ll also tweet about it–how’s that?!)
