In less than a month, I’m moving to the great city of Indianapolis! Because I’m sort of in denial, I’ve been reading a lot! Just finished Struts and Frets, which I loved loved loved! And now I’m trying out a paranormal romance, which is a stretch for me. When I went to shelve Struts and Frets (Possibly the most clever YA title ever, btw) I noticed there was no room for it and I started thinking of packing all those books! And then I thought, hey! I’ll just give some of them away on my blog!

Some of them I’ve read and want to share with you. Some of them I’ve come to grips with the fact that I just won’t read. It happens. Some of them I had to teach when I was thinking of becoming a teacher. During those years I would write MUGELE across the top; so, many of the books have that scrawled across them. Otherwise, they’re in good shape.

So, here’s how it will work: Just leave a comment listing which one or ones you want. List them out in your comment. I’ll give them away by first come first serve. So, you may have to read the comments to see if someone else has claimed the book before you. I’ll cross them out as they are claimed, as well.  Then email me your address, so I can mail them to you. Please only U.S. residences; I’m cheap and won’t mail out of the U.S. Also, if you don’t mind, I’d really appreciate some linking and tweeting of this post, because I want share the YA author love! And my readership isn’t enormous. Thanks everybody and I hope you find some books you want! Contact me at jody(dot)mugele(at)gmail(dot)com.
