A giveaway you didn't even know was happening...

So unless you're not reading my tweets/ posts or unless you're really not paying attention, I have hinted that when we hit 100 (or more) reviews in the Review Archive I was going to do a giveaway. Now that we've hit that goal (and more), it's time to spell this out a little more.

But! But! But! Lili mentioned something to me, (y'all should be thankful for her, even if she reams you on Time Out) she said I should thank the donors cause, well, without them, this program would have died as soon as it started (how I thought it would happen!).

My reaction:


Then:


THEN. We hit 500 (+) followers and that kind of sealed the deal.

So all of that led to this: (sorry, this is not a gif, but you might recognize the closet space!)

WHAT IS IN IT?!?!?!?!?
I DON'T KNOW!!!
Actually, I do, but I'm pretending I don't.
The better part is that YOU don't know. And you're not gonna know.

You:


Yeah, I said it.

Here's what's going to happen:
Three prizes. (Mysterious box x3 - Jennifer didn't get enough boxes in time for the picture)
Three winners.
A Russian roulette of giveaways.

*I sifted through a lot of disturbing entries for Russian roulette. You're lucky I found this.

Unmarked Box 1 will go to one of 100 (and some) reviewers listed here: http://arcycling.blogspot.com/p/review-archive.html
That much has been obvious for a while. Every review is one entry.

Unmarked Box 2 will go to a random donor who has donated over 3 books.

Unmarked Box 3 will go to a random GFC follower since we broke 500 followers.

Now. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU ARE STILL WONDERING:
WHAT IS *IN* THOSE BOXES?!
Well, I'll give you this much:
1. Each box has 12 books (blend of hardcover and paperback, new and older).
2. Each box is primarily YA with a balance of genres.
3. While most are ARCs, there are finished copies (both paperback and hardcover) in both boxes.
4. Most these came from my personal collection, cuts, etc because I still have WAY too many books.

So what's super-di-duper unique about this giveaway?
THE BALLOTS ARE ALREADY IN.

More audience reaction shots:


Me:


Means this is like the SAT, you go in knowing what you know. It's not something you cram for, this is an accumulation. Which is this. Your entry (or lack-of entry) is already in. As of this second, no more donations will get you an entry. They will count to the NEXT goal giveaway. Whenever that will be.

Believe me, this saves me a lot of kerfuffle. No fussin' or fightin' or Rafflecopter or nothin'. It saves me even more kerfuffle that I already have my winners picked and going to announce them... right... now...

Random Reviewer: Heather at SPEW You Voldemort
Random Donator: Sara at Forever 17 Books 
Random Follower: Melissa at Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf 

Winners check your inboxes and thanks for being your awesome selves! 

And now to end this on a gif that made me laugh for like, 8 hours.
Really, it's the falling guitar and the completely uncaring cat that kills me. I mean, it doesn't even look over!

  49. VANCE.
    I AM HERE MORE THAN HAPPY FOR THE GOODNESS, GODDESS SUNLIGHT DID FOR ME.i worked as a producers of
    songs and video in new york. 3yrs ago my my business was going into bankruptcy so lend money from
    the bank to finance my business, i have been paying but my failure as unable to pay at the agreed
    time for the loan was about to cost me my studio i sold my car but nothing worked out at this time
    i could not pay for my rentage and was on a verge of lossing everything the only days remaining was
    just 7days and each day became too fast in my eyes and i don't know what to do.i cried like a little
    baby everything i use to see comments about sunlight how she brought people ex back restore there
    home i thought it was just for fun later in my case i thought it's only ex back she can do but at time
    my mind told me to contact her SUNLIGHTSPELL@gmail.com. 3days ago i contacted her email with tears then
    she reply back and told me BLESSED CRY NO MORE FOR EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE i smiled as if she saw me
    crying or seeing me i never believed her at the first time and that was my greatest mistake.but she was
    not someone who need you to believe or not she promise and never fail later that day she told me what to
    do. that time i was tired up so last night i did everything she told me, just as i was about to finish
    inside my bathroom i heard a female voice GO TO YOUR STUDIO TAKE YOUR BATH WITHOUT SOAP AND GO.i shawered
    and i went i was owning bank $46,000 when i got to the studio there was nobody then i opened about 5mins
    later someone came into the studio i don't know this person and i have never see the face my life before.
    he just came in and i said i want to record i said many tracks he said an album then i booked him for that
    day that was yesterday later he asked where is my toilet i directed him then he went inside and left the
    brife case hours where going he never came out about 5;30pm i was afraid to see dead man inside the toilet
    i went there knock no one answered then i open there was nobody i inside i ran to the studio the brife case
    was still there i want to dump it at the refuse box then i heard the same female voice again! DON'T. TAKE
    IT INSIDE REQUEST HAS BEEN GRANTED AND SUCCESSFUL. i opened the brife case it was full of cash bundle of
    dollars i thought i was a joke and i could not believe it i was restless.the money inside was more than i
    expected or could even imagine. this morning i called my accountant and pay him everything and double it
    as his own gain he was shocked and and i plaining to buy more equipment and also buy another car and i have
    also pay rentage years i am so very happy that i thanked her so much she is really a goddess of truth and
    light. 2hrs ago i sat down and waas thinking about her, the only thing that came out of my mouth was I BLESS
    YOU MA'AM DAUGHTER OF JAI MATA DURGA.
