Hanukkah Extravaganzah, Part the First!

A computer generated image of a menorah with a book in front of it. On the first night of Hanukkah, Smart Bitches gave to me: book store shopping money!

Tonight marks the first night of Hanukkah, and we have gifts for you! I'll be hosting something different each day, so come on back each day.  

The first night of Hanukkah gift: a $100 gift card to the bookstore of your choice.

Standard disclaimers apply: I'm not being compensated for this giveaway. Void where prohibited. Must be 18 years of age and wearing warm socks to win. Open to international residents. Try the latkes with applesauce and sour cream.

To enter, leave a comment telling us which book you'd buy first. I will choose the winner at random. You have 24 hours to enter.

Happy Hanukkah – let's get bonkers in here! Fried food and sugar should make us plenty bouncy.

    The Windflower, by Laura London. I canNOT find it anywhere, but am too cheap to purchase it for the $30 it’s available for on Amazon without giftcarding…but I keep hearing I should read it!

    Lowcounty Boil by Susan M. Boil The description had me at “Private Investigator Liz Talbot is a modern Southern belle: she blesses hearts and takes names.”  The Low Country island setting is on of my favorites.

    All of Maya Banks’s Highland series.  I’ve wanted to read them SO badly but I have a miniscule book budget. :(

    My wish list is about a mile long but the first book I would get would be The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts. Having the last book of a trilogy out there waiting for me just out of reach is maddening!

    Cheryl Green says:

    The first book I would buy would be Stake & Eggs (A Cackleberry Club …
    by Laura Childs.  She is one of my fsavorite authors.

    My first purchase would be Heart of Atlantis by Alyssa Day.  I’m dying to know what happens to Alaric, but Agency pricing keeps me away.

    Happy Hanukkah one and all!

    I’d buy Jim Butcher’s Cold Days first. And then I’d go a little wild! :)

  16. 16

    Ooh. That’s a hard question, but I’d probably buy (preorder) the new Julia Quinn/Eloisa James/Connie Brockway book, THE LADY MOST WILLING, first!

    I’m first?  Awesome!  (unless someone sneaks in before I can hit enter) lol

    Happy Hanukkah, Sarah!  Thanks for the great giveaway!  First on my list would be KING OF THE DAMNED by Juliana Stone with a long list to follow.

    Haven by Kay Hooper.  I love Kay Hooper, but it is hardcover, and thus priced above my impulse buy level.

    An Affair with Mr. Kennedy. I’ve been intrigued since I first heard about it from you ages ago but haven’t had an opportunity to pick it up.

    Let me start by saying as someone who lives in Israel I’m so happy to hear about a Hanukkah contest and not only Christmas ones.
    The first book I’ll buy will be All He Ever Dreamed by Shannon Stacey. It won’t be out until next month but I can’t wait to read it. 
    Happy Hanukkah :)

    Diana says:

    I’d buy Jaci Burton’s Play By Play series, starting with The Perfect Play. Can’t believe I don’t have these books yet. :D

    Tina says:

    I have an Amazon wish list that ranges from Carolyn Jewel’s Not Proper Enough to The Mirror of the Artist: Northern Renaissance Art in Its Historical Context by Craig Harbison that would make a significant dent in $100 gift card.

    Happy Hanukkah to you and your family, Sarah!

    Beyond Heaving Bosoms, of course! I’ve been wanting to read it, but $11 is beyond my budget at the moment—I just spent all my extra money on a new nook…

    This is How You Lose Her, Junot Diaz and his back catalogue, also became fans of Grace Burrowes and Tessa Dare this year – would love their collections, too!
