Something A Bit DIfferent

As some of you may know, the official Forgotten Bookmarks scanner is dying.

I can't really post anything new until I get myself a replacement, so let's have a giveaway instead.

Instead of the usual classic titles, I decided to offer up three choices:

10 Romance paperbacks:


10 SciFi/Fantasy paperbacks:


10 Mystery/Thriller paperbacks:


I'll be picking a different winner for each of the three lots, so if you're interested, let me know which collection of books you'd like in the comments. I'll announce a winner on Tuesday, Jan. 25th at 12:00 PM EST. (tomorrow)

Good luck -

Ooooo, I would love the SF books.

JWiedenfeld said...

Wonderful! Sci-fi is grand. That would be my choice.

What's the plan to do scnaning moving forward?

GMR said...

Oooh! I believe I would like to enter to win the mystery/thriller selection please. Thanks! =0)

TinaGirl said...

Mystery/Thriller please!

Spacebeer said...

Fun! I'll throw my name in the hat for the set of SciFi/Fantasy books...

jociegal said...

Hahahaha - I will throw my name in for the Romance books. I have never read a romance novel in my life after years of hearing my Mom quip, "Those are trashy books for small minded people" - haha. But, why not give them a chance, eh? Haha.

downtown guy said...

I don't want to be entered, because I have several of them, but I wanted to say that there are some VERY good novels in that sf batch.

Skippy said...

SF/F for me! Thank you for all your wonderful posts!

I'll gladly throw my hat in the ring for the romance books. Gotta love a little brain candy now and again.

oddharmonic said...

I don't *need* more books, but I like the look of the sci-fi collection. I haven't met a UKL book I didn't enjoy.

Re scanner-dying, would you like a gently used USB2 flatbed? When my husband and I combined households a few years ago, we retired one of our scanners since we had the same make/model. I'll have to look around to find the power cord but it's light enough that shipping shouldn't be too bad. It's a Microtek ScanMaker 5900, nothing special but it handles smaller transparent media and it's in good working order.

Paige

dulcigal said...

What a delightful giveaway! Please add me to the Sci-Fi hopefuls.

Johnice said...

Science fiction please! I always thought I never liked SF, but a co-worker had me watch all of the original Star Trek episodes and now I'm really into SF books. Star Trek is a gateway drug.

ZlatkoGR said...

SciFi/Fantasy for me too! Great giveaway

Michelle said...

I would love the romance novels.... ;)

Logan Thomas said...

Sci-Fi would be wonderful, I'm afraid my shelves are lacking in sci-fi...

Thank you.

nightsmusic said...

Oh, Romance, hands down!

And your site came up today on the WordWenches, btw, in a post by Anne Gracie.

:)

TC Byrd said...

SF, please.

gunter said...

sci-fi/fantasy please?!

Andrew said...

sci-fi/fantasy would be lovely! Also, are you looking to fund your new scanner through the site? I'd happily chip in a few bucks to keep the bookmarks coming.

unmoderated said...

Very generous of you Andrew, but I have a lead on a proper book scanner that the local university doesn't need anymore.

The books pictures should be even better than they are now.

Amanda said...

I'd love to win the sci-fi books. There's a few in there that I've been meaning to read and the others look interesting, too.

Tricia said...

SciFi/Fantasy, please!

(our old scanner is still going strong, but the computer it has been attached to is dying. We need to figure out if the old drivers will work on a computer with a newer OS...)

unmoderated said...

Tricia, the scanner dying may be a blessing in disguise; it won't work with my regular computer running Vista, so I use a little Dell netbook to scan and save the .tifs on a network drive. A new scanner should make life a bit easier.

CaRiiToO said...

OMG! I'd love to have the SciFi/Fantasy or the Romance lot... whichever of them would be great! Please!
Thank you!

Marie Burton said...

Good luck on the lead for the new scanner!! Meanwhile ..sign me up for the Romance books please! Thanks!

I've been meaning to get around to reading these guys for a while but the local library's selection is severely wanting. Good luck with the scanner!

DC said...

sci fi all the way!

fleetwoodkit said...

How to make a choice? I like both the mystery and the romance selections and I always pass them along to someone else.

I look forward to seeing what you have "found" daily. Thanks!

Park Avenue Princess said...

What a generous giveaway! I'd like the thriller/mystery books!

Although, there are a few in the Sci-Fi that look amazing :)

Thank you for the chance to win!

Congratulations on your new scanner!

What a great giveaway! You can never have too many SF books on your shelves!

Love the site. Hope you get a scanner soon.

Would love either the romance or sci-fi to help me escape from my own reality.
