Giveaway of *SIGNED* Will Grayson, Will Grayson

(ok, go back and read the title again, but pretend you are Oprah and its the favorite things episode...its so much more fun that way!)

Yes, you read that right (especially if you did the voice).  I have a copy signed by both authors (John Green and David Levithan) of Will Grayson, Will Grayson that I am giving away.

To win:
you must be a follower of Maestra Amanda's Bookshelf.

I'll give you an extra entry if
*you follow me on Twitter (@maestra_amanda)
*tweet about the giveaway (make sure to @ include me so I know)  You can be as creative as you want, or use something like this:  "Enter to win a signed copy of Will Grayson, Will Grayson on  @maestra_amanda"

To enter, simply leave me a comment below telling me two things:  1.) what it would be like to meet someone with your name and, 2.)  your email.  (Not what would it be like if you met someone with your email---thats a separate thing to comment with)  If you don't leave an email, I can't contact you to let you know you won, and then I move on to the next person. 

Please note that the giveaway ends on 9/30.  I will use to choose the lucky winner.

If you aren't sure you want to enter, here is the summary (from Goodreads):
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical. Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them both legions of faithful fans.

UPDATE:  Since I forgot to say that it would only be open to US residents, and I've had international people enter---this will be one of the few rare contests that I will host that will be open internationally.   Sorry for any confusion.  So, even if you live in Antarctica, go ahead and enter! 


  1. I don't understand what you mean by telling you what it would be like to meet someone...but I'd love to enter this giveaway!! I'm following by GFC :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I'm also following you on twitter as Peace Love Books!

  2. Thanks for this AMAZING giveaway! Winning this would honestly make my life! :)
    Well, to answer your question--I have never MET someone with my name, but I have known of people with my name. I was at a concert last year, and I heard someone call out, "ANGEL!" so I turned around wondering who would be calling my name, but then I saw this drunken lady pushing her way through the crowd with two beers in her hands. She was laughing the whole time. AND wearing a party hat. Sigh. Not the kind of people I wanna meet if they have my name, haha. :)
    Anyway, thanks again for the giveaway! I'm a GFC follower (Angel Snyder) and I Tweeted about the giveaway:!/Angel909Reviews/status/114224271181623296

  3. okay... first~NEW FOLLOWER WAVES HI!~ and then... sadly I've met like 2 people whose name is the same as mine... and well I'm accustomed to it but if it was a complete stranger that was named exactly like me first, wouldn't believe it and think they were trying to make a good one out of me, 2 totally get along with her hehehe ~I'm not good with answering this things :/ ~
    anyways...looking forward to this blog!

    follow and twitted here!/alba_solorzano/status/114230334186463232

  4. I haven't met anyone with the same name as mine for both first & last name like that. But I had an office mate before with the same first name as mine. But since we are used to calling each others with initials it doesn't confused us much and we are in different department.
    If I ever met someone with the same full name as mine I might ask her to check if we are related or something coz I'm pretty sure that my surname is quite unique =)
    I follow you via gfc (blackplume) and twitter (blackplumetwits). I also tweeted about the giveaway:!/blackplumetwits/status/114235634381631488

  5. I haven't met anyone with the same name and same surname, but with my name are many people a little confusing when we are in the same circle.

  6. I hope the giveaway is international! (I live in Sweden)

    I've met a few people with the same name as me. It's quite fun and confusing, since you never know who someone is talking to when they say your name! Never met anyone with the same surname though. My last name is pretty uncommon!

    I follow you on Twitter as well! :) (My name is @magical_books)

  7. I haven't met anyone with the same surname (thank God), it's pretty uncommon. But with the same name I have met several people :/

    Thanks for the chance!


  8. P.S: Thank you for making it international!!! Fingers crossed.

  9. New follower here!

    To answer your question, I have met a lot of people that has the same name as me. Both Male and Female. Though my name is spelled Jean, I've met others with Gene.

    Thanks for the awesome give away and hope you can enter mine:

  11. Hi, I already entered this giveaway, but I just saw that I forgot to leave my email... what a fail. Anyway... my email is:
    Thank you!

  12. I meet people with my first name all the time...the curse of the Ashley, and with my first and middle name...curse of the 1980's Ashley Nicole, but if someone had my whole name it might alter the time space continuum!


Gold stars given to good comments.
