January Giveaway: Magpie's Delight

Is there a better way to welcome the New Year than with prizes? As you may know, I give away a prize each month to someone on my mailing list. For January, I've dipped into the collection of items I've collected during my book tour travels this year, to come up with a wonderful bounty I'm calling Magpie's Delight, sure to delight any book lover.

First, a tee-shirt from West Coast booksellers Mysterious Galaxy! Black, size XL, with the charming Mysterious Galaxy logo on the front, "Will Work For Books" proudly plastered across the back.What book addict would not want this shirt? Second, to carry your precious tomes, the Wonderstruck tote given away by Scholastic Books at BEA this past May. (Written by Brian Selznick, of The Invention of Hugo Cabret fame.)
Lastly--because this is the mailing list for The Taker, after all--I'll include one of these delightfully naughty pins by Caitlin Philips of Rebound Design. These wooden pins featured a risque phrase snipped from an actual book, lacquered on a bar, and ready to wear on the lapel of your favorite jacket or sweater--if you dare!!! I met Caitlin at the Baltimore Book Festival, where she sells her handmade treasures, all book-related.

I'm sure you agree that this is a fabulously fun way to start off 2012. Now, what do you have to do to win? First, you must join my mailing list. If you're already on the list, no worries--you're automatically entered for each monthly contest. (I won't flood you with email, and of course I would never share your email address with anyone.) This month's contest is limited to the US, please (though not all of them are). The drawing will be on January 31st.

Btw, the winner of Under the Poppy (see post, below) has been notified. Thank you to everyone who left a comment.
