{Giveaway} Once Upon a Read-A-Thon Mini Challenge

Woot! Woot! Who's joining all of us for the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon? The 3 days of non-stop reading fun is hosted by Lori at Pure Imagination, Angela & Loretta at Reading Angels and Candace at Candace's Book Blog. When they asked if Better Read Than dead would host a mini-challenge, I said, "heck yeah!"

What is a Read-a-Thon? Well, here's a little info borrowed from Angela and Lorretta @ Reading Angels!

A Readathon is where you set a goal for yourself to read more books that is beyond your average number of books you read. There is no minimum, it's all up to you! Push yourself to get some of those books read that have been sitting on your shelves for awhile! You can read anything you like. Any genre, any subject.

The Once Upon a Read-a-Thon runs from NOW, 12:01 am on July 8th to 11:59 on July 10th. If you haven't signed up, hurry and do so HERE.

I'm a nosy creature by habit, also, I'm looking for book suggestions, so my game is two-fold!

Mini-Challenge Time!!!

You're in a bookstore and you've just purchased 5 books you've been dying to read, when the apocalypse hits. (Zombie, Demons, Vampires, Dean Winchester vs. Sam Winchester (yes, I'm watching Supernatural reruns) I don't care what apocalypse). You've got one chance at survival, what 2 books do you take and what 3 other items do you take? 

So,, tweet, Facebook, or whatever your answer (as long as you leave me a verifiable linkup below.) #OUreadathon
Mini-Challenge ends at 11:59 EST on July 10, 2013.


$15 to your choice of Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Book Depository (if not in US or Canada).
