The Ranger's Apprentice . . . free for one person!

I need a new sense of humor. This one is tired.

But yes, not only can you read the first Ranger's Apprentice for free, you might win an ARC of the sixth, generously provided by Penguin. So how do you become the proud owner of Ranger's Apprentice: The Siege of Macindaw by John Flanagan?

Book Cover

It's easy! Just leave a comment on this post telling me what you ate for breakfast! (I'm tired of generic "enter me!" comments.) In the interest of transparency, I ate a piece of yellow cake with chocolate icing that my roomie bought me either because she's awesome or she's planning to eat me after I fatten up. If it's the second, she'll be disappointed because I have fabulous metabolism.

You can also get bonus entries by posting about the contest or following my blog - as long as you mention you've done these things in the comments. People who are already following get two bonus entries.

Since this is the sixth in a series, I'm going to give a bonus to those who are already reading it. Send proof you own any of the first five (receipt with personal info blacked out, picture of the book(s) on your shelf, etc.) to inbedwithbooks AT yahoo DOT com and you'll receive FIVE bonus entries per book, for up to twenty-five bonus entries.

This giveaway will end February 15th, the same day as the promotion. As THE SIEGE OF MACINDAW is being released August 11th, you'll receive the book well in advance of it hitting shelves. (But be kind - keep spoilers to yourself.)

Sorry for international readers, but US shipping only.

    I do own the first book, but I can't post a link to a picture because I don't have a digital camera (gasp), so I don't know how many entries this would be.

    I am now following your blog, and, having read several of the older entries, it seems interesting.
