Well, this is it!  My 100th post.  To celebrate, I’m having a contest so help spread the word.  Answer these two questions to be entered to win the following wonderful prizes.  If your name is drawn you’ll win a MP3CD Audiobook of both I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter and Born To Rock by Gordon Korman.

So, here are the questions:

1)  What connection does Ally Carter have to Oklahoma?  (I’m from Oklahoma so this was interesting to learn about her.)

2)  What is the new Scholastic series that Gordon Korman has been signed to write called?

If you want to be entered into the drawing a second time, post about this contest on your blog.  Send me the link to the specific post along with your answers to the trivia questions to karinlibrarian@gmail.com by Thursday, September 4th at Midnight.

HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins

In the nation of Panem, formerly known as North America, the Capitol rules the twelve outlying districts harshly.  Because of a past uprising, the Capitol requires each district to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games – a fight to the death broadcasted on live TV.

When Katniss hears her twelve-year-old sister’s name called to serve for their district in the Games, she doesn’t hesitate to volunteer herself to go in her place.  Katniss resolves herself to the idea that she will never see her family again.

Once Katniss is transported to the Capitol with the male counterpart from her district, she is put through several days of rigorous training before being thrown into the unknown landscape of the competition.

The HUNGER GAMES is a mix between The Lottery, The Most Dangerous Game, and Stephen King’s The Running Man.  Heartpounding action runs throughout the entire book.  You’ll be holding on to the edge of your seat until you find out who survives this barbaric form of governmental control.
