Giveaway: Best of '09

Michael and I have both picked out favorite reads from '09 to share with our readers. The winners you might ask? Boneshacker (review), by Cherie Priest and Best Served Cold, by Joe Abercrombie. Can you guess who picked what?

Regardless, in the spirit of sharing and thanking our readers for their dedication, we are offering a chance to win both books - both the best of '09 in our estimation.

So, as usual, follow the rules!

Giveaway Rules

Want a copy of both Boneshaker and Best Served Cold? Done. Just follow these simple giveaway instructions for your chance to win (giveaway runs till 2/1/10 @ 11:59 PM EST):

1) E-mail me [bloggeratf@gmail.com] your name and address, with "BEST OF 09" as the subject. Snarky comments increase your chances of winning and win bonus entries for future giveaway.
2) Sign up for site updates either in RSS or with Friend Connect on the side. This will also let you know about future giveaways!
3) Think happy thoughts.
4) (OPTIONAL)Spread the love, share or link to any post on the blog--this earns you brownie points as well as increasing your (if you have made it this far) already significant odds.

I've been meaning to read these for yonks, everyone's been saying how good Abercrombie is, and I'm in desperate need of more Steampunk. I shall keep my fingers crossed...;-)

Das ist also der Anfang der zweisprachigen Kommentare.
Gut gemacht!

That is the beginning of bilingual comments.
Well done!

no more new languages please.
The whole day I had to deal with CL, RPG, HMTL, XML, Java, Java script.

Bitte keine neuen Sprachen.
Ich musste mich den ganzne Tag mit CL, RPG, HMTL, XML, Java, Java script beschäftigen.

System.out.println("No prob, no more languages");

I'm sorry I couldn't resist.

Tut mir leid, ich mach's nicht mehr.

I'm exhausted. Too much stuff for my my brain.

Ich bin erschöpft. Zu viel Stoff für mein Gehirn.

Great contest. I've been wanting to read both these books, but Boneshaker in particular. Though I'm not so good at snarky comments, so I guess I'll have to forgo the extra points :(
