Awesome giveaway!
My book club would LOVE to win the YA Contemporary Pack 1. Really, they enjoy it all, but I've noticed a trend in choosing contemporary fiction :)

Hi there!
I'm not sure I qualify, so I'll give a brief description: I'm president of the Teen Advisory Board at the Yorba Linda Public Library in Yorba Linda, California. The Teen Advisory Board hosts a book club once a month at the library called "Books & Bagels" in which we, along with other teens in the community, discuss a book each month and eat bagels.

We'd love to win either of the contemporary packs or the YA fantasy/paranormal pack if we qualify. :)

Thanks so much for this awesome giveaway!

YA fantasy and contemporary Packs
This is a great giveaway I hope I qualify. I often times a month meet with a group and discuss what we are reading, and how it has affected us or what it has taught us. I think it would be great to introduce some YA books to the group and see what they think.

Great Giveaway!
I'm a middle school library media specialist. We run lit circles and book clubs throughout the year and are always looking for new books! Any of the prizes would be great but I'm especially interested in the YA fantasy/paranormal pack! My email is zweifelh at milton.k12.wi.us

I am a student at Middle Tennessee State University. Not sure if our group qualifies since we are just a group of YA authors that meet to discuss what we are reading and writing. If we do then we are interested in all of the packs. If we don't qualify I understand.
