And now for the Birthday Book Giveaway! I'm giving away a copy of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins in celebration of my upcoming birthday on September 25. Here's the synopsis from the back cover:

In a dark vision of the near future, a terrifying TV show is taking place. Twelve boys and twelve girls are forced to appear in a live event called Hunger Games. There is only one rule: kill or be killed. When sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen steps forward to take her sister's place in the games, she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.

Here’s what to do to be entered for the giveaway:
  • For 1 entry eligibility, just leave me a comment in this post

  • For 3 entries, do (1) and (2), and also be my friend on Facebook—if you're already a friend, that's counted too! Or, follow me on Twitter.
