Book Blogger Zombie Giveaway

Stop running.

Resistance is futile (wait that's a Star Trek saying)

Anyway, ahhhhhhh. urghhhhhh. unhhhhhh.

You've run into a dead end and my fellow zombie book bloggers and I have caught up to you despite our slow-going shuffling and moaning.

We have you cornered and one of us has managed to "bite" you before you escaped.

OK, you've climbed over a chain link fence away from our grasping hands.

You're safe. But... not for long.

According to the zombie bite calculator, you've only got (whatever your calculated time is) before you are zombified.

Yeah, have your last meal.

Oops, times up.

You're now an unmentionable - living undead - (ahem) zombie.

Welcome to the Z world!

To satisfy those zombie urges, you are forced into the blogosphere to "infect" one or more bloggers.

To be cured of this zombification and to win a copy of The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection From The Living Dead by Max Brooks...

You must do the following:

1. "bite" a YA book blogger

How to bite:

- Visit one of these YA book bloggers

- Read one of their book review posts
(must be about books, because we are book zombies)

- Leave them a nice comment

- And tell them they have been "bitten by a book blogger zombie" and if they want to find a cure before turning into a zombie they should visit this link (provide link to this post so they know who is responsible for the zombie craziness)

2. Comment below and tell me who you bit

+1 per additional YA book bloggers bitten (up to a total of 3)

+1 tell me what kind of zombie you are:

feral - wild, unable to control your eating habit

low functioning - like a drone, slow moving can control eating urge-somewhat

high functioning - can almost pass as human

Open to all.

Offer ends: September 5, 2009.

Now, go.

Go and feast on YA book bloggers.

Oh yeah, just bite... no brainsssssss.

Contest has ended - winner is here

Have you been bitten by a book blogger zombie?

If you have been bitten by a book blogger zombie and seeking the cure, you've come to the right place.

Yes, it's that simple. Just comment below informing me who "bit" you. And while you're here, why not check out the other zombie reviews and giveaways on this blog or at the September Zombies week events blog here.

BUT, you can also choose to partake in the first giveaway offer above and be transformed into a book blogger zombie. This means you'd have to go out and "bite" a YA book blogger per instructions above.

The choice is yours. But hurry, times up on September 5, 2009.
