Giving books away

Getting dismayed seeing stuff in my room. Deciding on clearing some clutter. Segregating the books I can give away. Listing them below.
  1. Heart Sick - Chelsea Cain
  2. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz
  3. The Seven Deadly Wonders - Matthew Reilly
  4. The Other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory
  5. Oh the Glory of It All - Sean Wilsey
  6. Infected - Scott Sigler
  7. Sandstorm - James Rollins
  8. Dead until Dark - Charlaine Harris
  9. The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov
  10. Birds Without Wings - Louis De Bernieres
To get a book of your choice, just email me what book you'd like to have and your answer to this question:

"Why is the blue sky?"

Yes, I know that the question is grammatically off (a la "Why is the green tea?"). This contest is open to Metro Manila residents only though. I'll email you how you can get your book. Feel free to answer the question in the comments section too!

Because you take it for granted. Because all everybody else writes songs and sonnets about are the sun and the moon or even those scene-stealing clouds. Because no one gives a fig until it turns an inky gray and weeps.
Hey, P. #s 3, 6, and 9 look lovely. Whichever one you feel like tossing my way to punish the purplish prose at the tail end. Haha.

Hello, Marie! I haven't read that yet.

Hi Peter.

Because God loves Ateneans?
(Fingers crossed you're not from that school along Taft =D )

My choice would be any book in the pile that you think I would like. Except The Other Boleyn Sister, coz that's in my TBR :)

Thanks! Now I can finally comment on your blog.

Why is the sky blue? Of course it is not blue! Have you looked closely lately? It was blue when you were young and thought all things were pretty. Now its just gray, a pale shadow of its old self.

I would love the Charlaine Harris book. Although I hate True Blood :-)

Peter! 'twas nice meeting you at the book club meeting a while ago. Is this still open? I just saw it! lol.

Well, it doesn't hurt to answer anyway so "Why is the blue sky?"
- Because God wanted to mirror the seas on the heavens above, so both are blue in our blue planet :D

If possible, could i get Dead Until Dark? If not, any book would do except for Other Boleyn Girl :D
