Sharing the Love - Mega Summer Giveaway

Okay, a few things have caused this post to come into being.

1) I had major happy awesome news tonight - it *may* not come to fruition, hence I can't talk about it publically - but rest assured that it is AMAZING!

2) I've gotta do something to cheer me up from the bad weather blues. Seriously, July! WTF?

3) I realised, during a fun little book sort (yes, I sort my books for fun, so sue me) that I have a massive number of books that have either been read, or I have duplicates, or, or, or....

Observe the big pile of sorted books:

So I am sharing the love with a BIG SUMMER GIVEAWAY.

Here are the rules:

1 - Fill out the form below
2 - Because I'm feeling happy and fuzzy, this is an INTERNATIONAL giveaway
3 - You can pick more than one set of books to put your name in the hat, but I will make it so that you can't win more than one set - if you see what I mean :-/
4 - This GIVEAWAY will close prompt at midnight Friday 29th July

I think that is everything, but shoot me any questions in the comments below.
