ARCs Away

I appreciate everyone coming up with so many terrific ideas on how to handle extra ARCs. I wish I had enough to send you all a copy. But names have to be drawn, so the winners of the Take My ARCs, Please giveaway (along with the suggestion they made that I'm going to use) are:

1. Applejacks0711, who suggested: "I like the idea of donating it to a cancer treatment center (my grandmother and mother would love to read stuff like that when they're there)."

2. Jason, who suggested: "You could donate them to a soldier. I'm pretty sure that they need something to get their minds off of their current situation."

3. Firebrand, who suggested: "New reading material would be much appreciated here at the Burn Unit."

4. Karen W., who suggested: "I'm always all for donating to a women's shelters..."

5. Edie, whose comment read: "Send them to the amputee ward of military hospitals for severely injured troops."

Winners, please send your full name and ship-to information to LynnViehl@aol.com so I can get these ARCs out to you. Firebrand, if you would also send the address for the Burn Unit, I'd appreciate it.

I'll have a post later on in the week (with pics if possible) as I distribute the other ARCs according to your suggestions. Thanks again to everyone for joining in.


  1. This is so great. I love that you do for other people. Keep it up! You've blessed me just by posting this.

  2. Congrats to all the winners, I'm quite envious. Now I'll just have to wait until it's in print to get my own copy (sigh).

    Those are wonderful ideas. Congrats to the winners. I really like the burn unit idea and the cancer center ideas. I used to work in a nursing home and I know any sort of medical facility is usually seriouly lacking in decent reading material.

    Now I'm going to go sulk quietly that I wasn't one of the winners. ;p

    I'm thrilled to be one of the winners and really appreciate your generosity! I'm also thrilled about where the other ARC's will be donated. What a great thing.

    Great contest, sorry I missed it!

    Just a note: I have senior seminar AND essay writing this semester; I am actually REALLY excited for both, only I thought I knew what I wanted to write for SS and now I have no idea. Too many options, I don't do well... *g*

  6. Congrats to the winners! I think this might be one of the best giveaways you've ever done, PBW.

  7. Congrats to the winners, and thank you , Sheila.

  8. Yay! Those are some great picks. That's so cool to see the ARCs go to such worthy places. *thumbs up*
