Bloggy Giveaway Carnival--Chick-lit and a token male author

Photobucket The de-cluttering never stops around here. And now, I've found a new way to foist my belongings off on the world! Thanks and a tip of the hat to Shannon, of Rocks In My Dryer.

Here's how it works. I'm giving away some books. They have all been read or at least handled, but except for the Jennifer Weiner book (which looks like two beach-book-crazed Mommies wrestled for it at Border's) they are newer rather than older. (You might even be able to get away with regifting some of them ... but you didn't hear that here.)

I was going to post a picture, but because I am Poppy, Hear Me Make an Idiot Out of Myself Whenever Little Buttons Need to be Pushed, No, Not That One, And Get Your Mind Out of The Gutter, I can't figure out why I can't get the picture out of the camera and onto my laptop.

So a list will have to do. I'm giving away:

A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke
Confessions of a Slacker Mom by Muffy Mead-Ferro
GRITS Friends Are Forevah by Deborah Ford
Stop Dressing Your Six-Year Old Like a Skank by Celia Rivenbark
Goodnight Nobody by Jennifer Weiner
This is Chick-Lit, edited by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

To win, leave a comment saying you're interested.

I'll be holding a totally fair, objective, random drawing on Friday at 5:00 p.m. (This means Susie Sunshine will not automatically get them, no matter how much she whines.)

Then I'll post the name of the winner on my blog.

Have fun!

UPDATED because OK, I finally figured out the new camera. Happy?
