THE HUNGER GAMES Playaway Giveaway

Probably tons of us have read THE HUNGER GAMES (Scholastic, 2008) by Suzanne Collins, so the good news is I'm not just giving away that.

It's more.
It's better.

It will make the perfect holiday gift for someone you know and love.


Don't know what a Playaway is?

Bascially it's an All-In-One AudioBook (complete with earphones, a battery, and an MP3 player loaded with the audiobook and pasted with a nice little book cover on the front).
You can read more about Playaways here.

And you can read all about THE HUNGER GAMES Playaway here!

Source of Audiobook: From librarian from company

For your chance to win this PLAYAWAY Audiobook, all you need to do is:

1) Follow this blog
2) Follow The Texas Sweethearts blog
3) Comment on this blog post

For extra entries:

1) Blog about this contest and leave a comment telling me
2) Tweet about this contest and leave a comment telling me

And make sure you leave me a way to get in contact with you when you win!

The contest will run through midnight on Thursday, December 16, 2010!

This is really cool! I haven't listened to any audiobooks before, so The Hunger Games would be a good book to start with.

This is seriously the coolest giveaway I have seen all year.

I love audio books and have been listening to Harry Potter read by Steven Fry every night for about three years straight. This ones hard to replace but I think the Hunger Games might just do it!

Thanks for this giveaway. I have put a link to this page on my sidebar and it will remain there until the comp finishes. You can see it at http://mistysmess.blogspot.com/

I would like to win this playaway for my totally blind mother-in-law. She can't see to change the audio book CD's. So, she can only listen to playaways. She used to be an avid reader until she lost her sight. It would mean the world to her if I could win this for her.
