Divergent Book Discussion Giveaway

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Do you know what time it is?  Every year around this time, The Bucket List hosts a book discussion.  This year, you voted and we will all be reading through Divergent by Veronica Roth.

To kick off this awesome discussion, I am giving away a copy of Divergent.  However, if the discussion goes well, I will be adding quite a few other goodies to the giveaway as well (and probably a copy of Insurgent, the sequel, too).  You don't want to miss this!

All you have to do is fill out the form below but, first, here is what Divergent is all about:

Divergent by Veronica Roth
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.--Goodreads
Awesome, right?  So here is what you have to do:
  • Comment! That’s basically all the work you have to put into this. Every comment you post on our discussion posts (and no, it can’t be a comment about something off topic- you must stay with the discussion) will add you an extra entry in the giveaway.  For each comment, you receive +1 as an extra entry.
  • You don't have to be a follower, but how else will you keep up with this awesome discussion? 
  • Due to money issues, I cannot make this contest international. However, if you, international folks, have USA friends, we could always send the gift to them who then could pass it on to you or if you are willing to pay for shipping and handling, we would gladly send the gift to you.
Those who are up for this contest—the deadline is 5/28/13.  On 5/29/13 I will email the winner of the book. (You will have 48 hours to claim your prize from that date.) Just fill in the form below, if you qualify, and don’t forget to comment.
Other things to remember: This is how the book discussion will run: Each week we will go over the plot of that week's three chapters.  Tomorrow, I will be posting the schedule to the discussion, so you will never miss a post.  We will reflect and discuss favorite scenes, random thoughts, and other awesome stuff. At the end of each post, there will be discussion questions for anyone who would like to join in on the fun. What are we asking you to do? Read along with us and comment every week! This book discussion is going to be so much fun and it would be even more so if you'd join us!

So stay tuned! (Every discussion post will take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.)  So bring on the comment love and don't forget your copy of Divergent.
