That's right, she's giving away Catching Fire!

ETA (July 27) - The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered! Winners were announced here.

Conundrum: You have the book everybody wants. How do you choose which lovely person gets it?

Answer: You let the gods of random numbers decide*.

I read it. I loved it. I laughed, I cried, etc. (And, of course, it made me want the third book, like, yesterday. But we all knew that was going to happen.) So, I'm giving you a chance to win a copy.

THERE IS ONE CONDITION! I would like your promise that if you win this ARC, you will read it and pass it on to someone else. Give it to your sister/brother/best friend/cousin/teen advisory group/local YA librarian or give it away on your own blog, whatever. (Do not put it in your library's collection - that is a big no no.)

ETA (9:09pm): Due to the wonderful generosity of a fellow ALA-going librarian, we will be giving away THREE COPIES!! Woohoo!!!

If you want to win my ARC, leave a comment on this post. Link to the contest on your blog, Twitter, etc. and leave an additional comment for each link. The more you link, the more entries you have. In your comment, include your email address and your assurance that you will pass along the ARC when you're done (seriously, or I will disqualify you!).

Note: leaving additional begging comments will NOT help your chances.

I will accept entries through Sunday, July 26 (mainly because I have next Tuesday morning off and I think that will be the first time I can get to the post office).

Good luck and may the random number gods be with you!!

*If you're anything like me, you're sick of having to jump through hoops for the chance to win this most coveted of fall reads, but I honestly couldn't think of a fairer way to do it. Leaving a comment is not too much hoop-jumping anyway...

Hey, Abby (the) Librarian, what a wonderful thing to do -- thanks! If I win, I promise I will read it in one night and then pass it on to my coworker (also named Abby) the very next morning. She has read the first book, oh, probably eighteen times by now :))) That is, unless she ambushes me and steals it from me before that :) After that, I have at least three other friends who can't wait to read it, so I promise this book WILL BE READ! Thanks again!
