Blast From the Past Giveaway

So last night I was searching through my old book shelves when I came across some books that I hadn't read in AGES. And that's when I had an idea, Blast From the Past. Every month I will post a "blast from the past", a book that came out years ago, for review and giveaway. Someone else is probably already doing this somewhere, but I haven't seen it anywhere so I can't give them credit for it (sorry).

This month's Blast From the Past is: *drumroll* Coraline by Neil Gaiman. This book won an ALA Best Book for Youbg Adults Award, among others, when it first came out and now they have a movie. The story is about a girl named Coraline who finds a secret passage out of her flat into the "other" world where her other parents live. But they want her to stay forever by sewing big black buttons on her eyes and she doesn't want that, not after the mice told her not to go through the door.

Now, to enter this give away you must do one or all of the following:

+1 For commenting on this post
+1 For following (+3 if you are already a follower)
+3 For posting about this in your sidebar or on your blog (you must show proof)
+2 For the first person to tell me another book by Neil Gaiman
This giveaway is only open in the US (sorry) since it's my first giveaway and it will end on:
April 18th
