Giveaway #1 for 2 Year Celebration!

****Giveaway CLOSED****

Did you get the chance to check out the Top Ten Urban Fantasy reads?

Well, on my portion of the list I have mentioned Ann Aguirre, a few times.  Needless to say, I really enjoy her books.  And have been enjoying her Jax series.  This series has a quick Science Fiction in space feel to it, but it's not a strong hard to follow Science Fiction.  It is full of fast paced movement with the characters.

If you would like to check out my reviews of the first two books you can: (click title to go to)
 And I'm currently enjoying Doubleblind

So, I have an extra set of the first three books ~ I purchased and are slightly used ~ up for grabs.

For this fun time I'm opening this giveaway to INTERNATIONAL friends! :)  I'm thankful for all the great friends I've made around the world here.

Giveaway Ends:  August 5, 2011 11:59pm EST.  Winner will be announced August 8th (after my weekend of celebrations.)
