Giveaway - The Magician's Kit - In Preparation For The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman

When I read the first two books in Lev Grossman's Magicians trilogy, everything else disappeared from my life. I couldn't get enough, I was drawn in and completely immersed. All I could do was read until I was done. Any given day, all I really want to do is read, but with these books, I had to read them, almost against my will (to be productive in work and life).

It goes without saying then, that I'm pretty much dying to get my hands on Lev Grossman's finale in the Magician's Trilogy, The Magician's Land, which comes out August 5, 2014 from Viking.

I don't have a copy of The Magician's Land to giveaway (sorry), I'm told they aren't available yet anyway, but what I do have is a bit of a teaser giveaway - The Magician's Kit.

From the email I received from the publisher:

"The Magician’s Kit contains: 
- An excerpt booklet containing Chapter 1 of THE MAGICIAN’S LAND 
- Clock-face buttons in 3 different designs [see below] ...
- A set of 4 postcards featuring Magicians fan art by Christopher Shy

 If you would like to enter, please follow the exceedingly simple instructions below:

- Email your name and address to: onlythebestsff@[remove this]gmail.com
- Write "Magician's Don't Kit " in the subject line (or something that lets me know what you're entering)
- Remember, this is NOT the book, The Magician's Land, only a teaser package
- Snarky comments get you extra entries for future giveaways (and make reading entries much more entertaining)
- US only (don't hate the messenger!)
- This giveaway ends a week from today

Also, if you still want to enter, Lev Grossman is hosting a contest for entries into his Book Trailer for The Magician's Land where readers read a quick sentence from the book alongside with some famous writerly types. I'm not a huge proponent of book trailers, but getting the fans involved sounds like a good idea.
